The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today released six special commemorative postage stamps dedicated to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi temple along with an album carrying similar stamps related to Lord Ram issued earlier in different countries of the world was also released. He congratulated all the devotees of Lord Ram in Bharat and abroad on the occasion.

The Prime Minister said that we all know that these stamps are pasted on envelopes to send letters or important documents. But they serve another purpose as well. Postage stamps also act as a medium to pass on historical events to future generations. So whenever you send a letter or object to someone with a postal stamp on it, you’re also sending them a piece of history. These tickets are not just a pieces of paper, but the smallest form of history books, artifacts, and historical sites.

The Prime Minister said that these commemorative stamps will also help our young generation in learning about Lord Ram and his life. He said devotion to Lord Ram has been expressed via artistic expression on these stamps and with the mention of the popular quatrain: ‘मंगल भवन अमंगल हारी’, a wish for the development of the nation has been made. The sun, the symbol of ‘Suryavanshi’ Ram, the river ‘Saryu’, and the internal architecture of the temple have also been depicted on these stamps. While the sun gives the message of a new light in the country, the picture of Saryu indicates that the country will always remain dynamic with the blessings of Ram.

The Prime Minister also praised the saints who along with the Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, guided the postal department in coming up with the commemorative stamps.

The Prime Minister underlined that teachings related to Lord Ram, Maa Sita, and Ramayana go beyond the boundaries of time, society, and caste and are connected to each and every individual out there. He said Ramayana which teaches about love, sacrifice, unity, and courage even in the most difficult of times, connects the whole humanity. This is why Ramayana has always been the centre of attention in the world. He said the books that were launched today are the reflection of how proudly Lord Ram, Maa Sita, and Ramayana are seen across the world.

The Prime Minister said countries like America, Australia, Cambodia, Canada, the Czech Republic, Fiji, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Thailand, Guyana, and Singapore are among the many nations that have issued postal stamps with great interest in the life events of Lord Ram. He said the newly launched album with all the information about Lord Shri Ram and the stories of Mother Janaki will give us an insight into their lives. It will also tell us how Lord Ram is an equally great icon outside India and how even in modern times nations, his character is appreciated.

The Prime Minister said Maharishi Valmiki’s invocation is even immortal today in which he said: यावत् स्थास्यंति गिरयः, सरितश्च महीतले। तावत् रामायणकथा, लोकेषु प्रचरिष्यति॥ It means that the story of Ramayana will prevail among the people as long as there are mountains and rivers on earth. So, will be the Lord Ram’s personality.
