It is a rich source of antioxidants like Vitamins A, Das watches five news channels every morning and evening. At other times he offers prayers “Both Vedic and worldly knowledge are important” he says Das wakes up at 4 am and recites bhajans for two hours At 6 am he turns on the radio to listen to bhajans and Ramcharitmanas An hour and a half later he listens to news on radio followed by reading the newspaper and then watches news on television After the morning aarti he gets into his Mahindra Scorpio and drives 3 km to his place of work — the makeshift temple of Ram Lalla The road to the temple complex has two checkpoints Das drives past the first but at the second policemen check the car before waving it through Once inside the complex there are two more vehicle checkpoints with CRPF jawans on duty Visitors can only carry money inside the complex — even pens have to be left behind Half a kilometre away from the makeshift temple they have to walk through three metal-detector frames and are frisked by CRPF personnel Covered with a tarpaulin sheet the temple is a small elevated platform with an idol Devotees walk through narrow barricade-enclosed paths to approach the temple but are not allowed inside They can only view the idol of Lord Ram take prasad from the priest and offer donations Das claims the temple gets up to 5000 devotees a day but at about 11 am only a dozen devotees are lined up for darshan The CRPF jawans kill time chatting with one another The temple is open to devotees between 7 am and 11 am and from 1 pm to 5 pm Das spends only two hours at the temple every day “Four assistant priests perform most rites As chief priest I oversee the opening and closing of the temple performance of aarti cleaning of the idol and preparation of food for Ram Lalla I offer prasad in the morning and have it for lunch too” he says Das makes Rs 6800 a month up from the Rs 100 a month that he used to earn in 1992 when he was appointed chief priest by the Faizabad district administration “I get Rs 60000 from the Faizabad Commissioner every month and from that I pay nine temple employees their salaries I get another Rs 30000 for Ram Navami celebrations and Rs 5000 for Shravan jhoola mela” he says At noon Das leaves for home On the way back he says the “disputed structure has seen better days” Das looked after the idols even when they were inside the Babri Masjid — before the mosque came down in 1992 — and lit a lamp there every day Das feels Ram Lalla is “like a person ousted from his house” “King Ram has been made a beggar after the demolition It was a temple but the VHP and the BJP said it was a mosque that had been built after destroying a temple” he says At this point a TV reporter walks in for a byte on Hashim Ansari the plaintiff in the Babri case who has said he won’t pursue the matter further “Hashim is getting old He wants credit for resolving the dispute while he is still alive” he says curtly Das adds that he is not worried about his security “I don’t even have a lathi while other sadhus flaunt arms here The CRPF offered me security but I refused Dharma protects those who protect dharma” he says At 2 pm he retreats to a tiny room holding a temple two bookshelves and a bed It is in here that Das spends most of his time After another round of prayers and a nap he is ready for his “favourite” task — teaching Sanskrit grammar His youngest student 11-year-old Sanidhya Shukla arrives at 4 pm Two other students follow and Das starts his class He asks “Who are the three acharyas of Sanskrit” When none replies he says “Panini Katyayan and Patanjali” The students repeat after him Born in Sant Kabir Nagar Uttar Pradesh Das came to Ayodhya in 1958 with his guru He studied at the Sanskrit Vidyalaya here and served as priest at Hanuman Garhi temple in 1959-60 An MA in Sanskrit he taught Sanskrit grammar at Tridandi Dev Sanskrit Mahavidyalaya in Ayodhya from 1976 to 2007 He even tried his hand at politics though without much luck In 2007 he filed his nomination for the UP Assembly elections from Ayodhya as an Independent but his fellow sadhus opposed him and called for his removal “I had filed my nomination papers and all my proposers were Muslims The sadhus then said ‘Pujari Ram ka aur prastavak Rahim ke’ My nomination was cancelled because of lack of the signature of one proposer I never thought of fighting an election after that” he says Das says it is “tough” to manage teaching with priesthood but that he took to it after he learnt of “an erudite mahant who taught nobody and became a Brahma Bhoot (a powerful spirit) after his death” “I don’t want to turn into a ghost” he says As it gets dark hewinds up his class It’s 7 pm and Das asks his disciple to enquire if the evening aarti of Ram Lalla has been performed He always feels content about serving Ram Lalla he adds “Humne Ram Lalla ko becha nahin kai log ne bech diya (I did not sell Ram Lalla like many others did)” he says standing up to leave for the evening prayers For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More
