Speaking about the initiative, Anagha Ghaisas, Director of Heritage Hand Weaving Revival Charitable Trust, Pune, said, “There are several people who wish to contribute in whatever way possible to offer their devotion to the Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir but are not sure how to step forward.
Through this initiative, we believe that people will offer their prayers without any barriers of caste, language, and economic background by weaving a strand or two of the holy fabric that will adorn the deity of Shri Ram in Ayodhya. We believe, People coming together, breaking all shackles of Caste, Creed, Religion & Ethnicity, is the truest form of devotion to our motherland
