No one was able to give a proper address because to most of the people of Ayodhya, Jilingseling is a 'lost village'. Most of the people on the hilltop of Ayodhya say, 'Go a little further, the one you will ask will tell you the address. After 30 minutes of climbing up and down the road on the Ayodhya hill, no direction was seen for going to the village of Jilingseling. There are road signs from Jhalda to Murugma and several other places, but no road to Jilingseling was found. Some of the boys were seen in a plain-like place on top of the Ayodhya hills. All they could say was that there were at least 10 more kilometers to go.
