Carrying Rama for
Ludhiana, October 17
For 90-year-old Babu Ram, it is not just the family tradition, but a matter of faith. For countless years Babu Ram has been carrying the palanquin of the Lord Rama, Lakshman and Sita on his shoulders.
Even the advanced age of 90 years has not weakened his shoulders and
he continues to carry the gods on his shoulders with the same strength
he used to do 50 or 60 years ago, when he was young.
