The chief pujari of the Ram Janmabhoomi temple, Acharya Satyendra Das, said, "Ram Lalla stayed inside a temporary tent for three decades and was kept away from festivity. He will bless devotees this year after the liberation of his birthplace." In another statement by Dr. Anil Mishra, member of the temple Trust, it has been stated that "After Mughal king Babar's commander Mir Baqi attacked the premises in 1528, Holi celebration was muted and limited to traditional rituals. Five hundred years later, we will celebrate the festival of colours at Ram Lalla's court. A new era has begun."
The discussions are already in progress lead by Ram Temple Trust with priests, regarding the scheduled Holi rituals. In fact, construction of the Ram temple has also begun in earnest, even the celebrations will be doubled. According to the recent decisions, natural colours and scented 'gulaal' will be used for the celebrations in the premises of Ram Lalla. Besides, the entire temple complex will be decorated with flowers in different shades, coming from different parts of the country.
