about the video

82-year-old Urmila Chaturvedi has been fasting for the last 28 years, all the while waiting for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Chaturvedi, a devout devotee of Lord Ram, had taken an oath after the communal riots of 1992 and had been surviving on fruits, curd and milk ever since. She now said that she would like to break her fast after consuming ‘prasad’ from the Ram Temple. She also narrated how she spent 28 years of her life fasting and reading the Ramayana. Reports claimed that her kin tried to convince her to break her fast earlier as well, but the 82-year-old would not agree. The foundation laying ceremony of the Ram Temple is scheduled for August 5 in Ayodhya. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be at the event to lay the foundation stone. The event will be attended by 200 people. The temple town has been preparing for the mega event. Watch the full video for all the details.
