Lucknow: To provoke the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee further, a lady Ram Bhakt from Varanasi, the Parliamentary Constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has sent a unique sketch painting of Ram Darbar with Lord Ram’s name etched on it 51,000 times.

It took one and half months for Shalini Mishra to sketch Ram Darbar having pictures of Lord Ram, mother Sita, Bharat, Lakshman, Satrughan, Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, Lord Mahesh and Lord Hanuman in different colours.

Shalini said that she developed this passion during the lockdown following Covid-19 pandemic. Now it has become a part of her daily life to sketch Lord Ram pictures in different shades and style.

What is unique about the painting is each and every sketch of different God and Goddesses in Ram Darbar were etched with ‘Ram Ram’. Even the Crown, clothes, jewellery, garlands, borders, vermillion etc all are etched with ‘Ram Ram’ in red, blue, saffron, yellow and red colors.

“I have created the entire Ram Darbar with the name of Lord Ram. For, he created the universe and is an ideal to the entire world,” she stated.

Shalini is hurt over the ongoing politics in West Bengal in the name of Lord Ram. “Why Trinamool Congress should object to anyone taking Lord Ram’s name. The BJP should also refrain from using his name for political gains. He is a faith to billions of people and should be kept away from politics. Lord Ram is universal and everyone should pay respect to him,” she said.

Shalini sent her special creation of Ram Darbar to Mamta Banerjee through the speed post on Monday. She has also sent a note to the West Bengal Chief Minister with her best wishes for the forthcoming polls, requesting Didi not to show disrespect to Lord Ram.
