Kishanganj (Bihar) , Nov 13 : Dev Das, a self-proclaimed devotee of Lord Ram, had resolved 18 years ago that until a Ram temple is built in Ayodhya, he will not wear slippers.
"Due to my unflinching faith in Lord Ram, not a single piece of glass lying on the streets or a pebble stone has hurt me. My resolve will be completed when the Ram temple will be established in Ayodhya. I would wear a slipper only after that happens," he added.
Amritesh Kumar Sah, a resident of Kishanganj said, "We are seeing him from our childhood days. He was my teacher. We got to know that he had resolved not to wear a slipper until the Ram temple is built in Ayodhya. He is a very nice person."
Dev Das runs a grocery shop. He is also a district executive of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
As per the recent verdict of the Supreme Court, three months have been given to the Central government to form a trust that will create a plan to establish the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
