Saraswati left for Ayodhya

Dhanbad: There is an atmosphere of excitement across the country regarding the consecration ceremony of Ram temple to be held in Ayodhya on 22 January. On this occasion, Saraswati, an 85-year-old elderly woman from Jharkhand, will break her three-decade-long fast of silence after her dream of inaugurating the Ram temple in Ayodhya comes true on January 22. His family claimed that on the day the Babri Masjid was demolished in 1992, Goddess Saraswati had vowed that she would demolish it only when the Ram temple was inaugurated.

Dhanbad resident Saraswati Devi left for Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh by train on Monday night to see the inauguration of the temple. The goddess is known as ‘Mauni Mata’ in Ayodhya. She communicates with family members through sign language. She also talks to people through writing but writes complex sentences.

Talk for one hour in the afternoon, silence for 23 hours

She took a break from the ‘vow of silence’ and spoke for an hour every afternoon for 2020. But from the day Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation of the temple, he observed silence for the whole day. Devi’s 55-year-old youngest son Hareram Aggarwal said, ‘When Babri Masjid was demolished on December 6, 1992, my mother had taken an oath of silence till the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya. He is very happy ever since the date of consecration was announced in the temple.

Dedicated her life to Ram after her husband’s death

Hareram, a resident of Bhaunra of Baghmara block, said, ‘She left for Ayodhya on Ganga-Sutlej Express from Dhanbad railway station on Monday night. She will break her silence on January 22. He said that Devi has been invited by the disciples of Mahant Nritya Gopal Das to participate in the Ram temple inauguration programme. Family members said Devi, the mother of eight children, including four daughters, dedicated her life to Lord Ram after the death of her husband Devkinandan Agarwal in 1986 and spent most of her time on pilgrimages.

Devi is currently living in Dhaiya, Dhanbad with her second son Nandlal Agarwal, who works as an officer in Bharat Coking Coal Limited (BCCL), a branch of Coal India. Nandlal’s wife Innu Aggarwal (53) said that after a few months of marriage, she saw her mother-in-law observing a fast of silence in devotion to Lord Ram.

Innu Aggarwal said, ‘Although we understand most of her sign language, but whatever she talks about in writing, she writes complex sentences.’ He said, ‘After the demolition of Babri Masjid, my mother-in-law visited Ayodhya and took a pledge of ‘maun vrat’ till the construction of Ram temple. She remains silent for 23 hours a day. Takes a break of only one hour in the afternoon. The rest of the time she communicates with us through pen and paper. (input language)
