One and a half lakh devotees are expected to visit Ramlala’s court on the first day of the new year. On Sunday, Ramlala will appear to the devotees in pink-red clothes. Special bhog is also prepared to be offered to them. The temple is decorated with flowers. Since the crowd is expected to be more this time than last year, the administration has already geared up.
Acharya Satyendra Das, the chief archer of Ramlala, says that one to one and a half lakh devotees will come to the court of Ramlala on the new year. No devotee should be deprived of getting Prasad, so arrangements will be made for distribution of Prasad at three places. Arrangements are being made by the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust for distribution of prasad on the darshan marg and evacuation route of Ramlala.

Gone is the era of greeting cards, emphasis on virtual greetings
Ayodhya. Greeting cards are now a thing of the past. Now it has become a trend to congratulate on social media. In the last five years, the business of greeting cards, which are the best selling on New Year, has decreased by 95 percent. Only five percent people are now doing the business of greetings, diaries and pen gifts. People are now preferring to send virtual New Year greetings on social platforms.
