The face of the battle for the temple from 92
Religious leader Mahant Nritya Gopal Das, who emerged as the leader since 1992 in the battle for Ram Janmabhoomi temple, has been one of the most famous faces of Ayodhya. Maniram Das, the largest temple in Ayodhya, had a reputation as the Peethadheeshwar of the cantonment. Mahanta was also the head of the trust formed by Vishwa Hindu Parishad in 1993 to carry out the process of construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya.

Story of becoming a monk
Mahant Ram Manohar Das performed the initiation ceremony of Nritya Gopal Das and with his inspiration Nritya Gopal graduated from the Sanskrit University of Varanasi and received the degree of Shastri. In 1965, only 27-year-old Nrityagopal Das was installed as a Mahant at a grand ceremony in Ayodhya. He took over the succession of Mani Ram Das Maharaj, who was a Mahant in the largest temple of Ayodhya called the small cantonment.

Spread over 25 acres, this temple has been one of the main attractions of Ayodhya, where hundreds of devotees have been arriving daily. Here the entire Gita has been inscribed on a pillar. The dances are held at the Aspandi in the upper part of the Gopaldas main temple and have been meeting devotees there morning and evening. Some facts related to them are worth knowing.

 Mahant Nritya Gopal Das is credited for building many important temples in Ayodhya like Ramayana Bhavan, Sri Ranganath Temple and Sri Char Dham Temple

In 2001, when Mahanta was returning with his disciples after a morning bath, unknown people threw bombs at him. Since then, two policemen remain under the protection of the Mahant.

 Nritya Gopal Das was born on 11 June 1938 in a Brahmin family in the village of Kerala in Mathura. In 1953, he was enrolled in Lalaram College in Mathura to study commerce.

 Nearly two years later, on the day of Gandhi Jayanti, Nritya Gopal Das left Ayodhya after leaving school after getting bored of traditional studies in college.


The Ram Janmabhoomi Tirtha Kshetra Trust was formed after the Supreme Court's decision and directive in 2019, but the Ram Janmabhoomi Nyas was established by the VHP in 1993 after the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition scandal. Ramchandra Paramahamsa was the head of this trust. Mahant Nritya Gopaldas took over as the head of the trust in 2003 after Paramhansa's death and led the fight for the construction of the Ram temple.

Coronavirus in India: Amid lockdown, why drinkers are switching to cheaper liquor


Coronavirus in India: Amid lockdown, why drinkers are switching to cheaper liquor

Hit by the steep price increase in wine, beer and spirits due to COVID cess, consumers in many states are downgrading to lower-priced alcoholic beverages, according to a LocalCircles survey.

The survey found that the volumes of liquor sales in the states are falling as consumers say they are buying less than their usual quantity due to increased MRP. This phenomenon might lead to reduced tax collections for the states.

The majority of consumers say they will order liquor through e-commerce apps if their state government allows.

The survey found that excise data in multiple states show a decline in sales volumes in May and June 2020, when compared with 2019.

Liquor is one of the biggest sources of revenue for the state Government. As the COVID-19 pandemic forced majority of businesses to shut due to the lockdown and reduced the tax collections, various state Government decided to impose a COVID surcharge/cess on liquor in their state in a bid to offset decline in revenue collection from other areas. Among all the states, Telangana, West Bengal and Rajasthan have seen a noticeable increase in prices of liquor in the last few months.

LocalCircles conducted surveys to better understand how this increase in prices due to COVID cess or surcharge is impacting the buying behaviour of the consumers in the states of Telangana, West Bengal and Rajasthan. The survey received more than 25,000 votes from residents of Telangana, West Bengal and Rajasthan.

Citizens were asked because of the COVID cess imposed by the Government of their state on alcohol, will they consider downgrading to a cheaper alternative alcoholic brand or product in the coming months to stay within their budget. In response, 55 per cent residents of Telangana, 50 per cent residents of West Bengal and 49 per cent residents of Rajasthan answered in an affirmative.

In the last 6-7 months, taxes on liquor in Telangana have been increased by around 40 per cent, leading to a sharp increase in the liquor prices in the state. In May, when the liquor shops were reopened after the lockdown, a tax increase of around 16 per cent was imposed on the sale of liquor in the state.

In West Bengal, more than 1.4 crore cases of hard IMFL and around 80 lakh cases of beer are sold annually. A large number of alcohol consumers ensured that the state earned nearly Rs 11,000 crores in taxes on liquor sales last year.

With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the majority of businesses to be shut due to the lockdown and reducing the state tax collections, West Bengal Government decided to impose a 30 per cent COVID-19 sales tax on liquor in the state in a bid to collect more revenue.

In Rajasthan, the government decided to impose a COVID surcharge on liquor in the state in a bid to collect more revenue. The price increase was up to Rs. 30 per bottle. Overall, it comes to taxes on liquor being increased by over 30 per cent in the last 6 months.

Consumers were also asked if their state Government removes or significantly reduces the COVID cess on beer, wine & other spirits, thus reducing the price, will they increase the quantity of liquor they purchase. In response, 45 per cent respondents of Telangana, 36 per cent respondents of West Bengal and 67 per cent residents of Rajasthan answered in a 'yes'.

In a related poll, 36 per cent respondents from Telangana, 27 per cent from Rajasthan and 48 per cent from West Bengal said that someone in their household consumes alcohol.

The sales of liquor have been extremely slow across states owing to the economic conditions, especially the pay cuts and job losses, due to which the disposable income to the residents has reduced. Many vends have said that they have only been able to reach about 50 per cent of their usual revenue due to the steep increase in prices.

The data from the excise departments of these three states also shows that the sales volumes in the month of May and June this year have reduced when compared with the same months last year.

The Delhi government had also levied a Corona Cess of 70 per cent on liquor but it was quickly rolled back after witnessing a drastic reduction in alcohol sales. The Odisha government too recently lowered the COVID cess from 50 per cent to 8 per cent after experiencing a reduction in alcohol sales and a corresponding decline in excise revenues.




Man dies after mini-truck gets submerged in water in central Delhi after heavy rains


Man dies after mini-truck gets submerged in water in central Delhi after heavy rains

New Delhi: A 56-year-old man died allegedly due to drowning after his mini-truck was submerged in water under the Minto Bridge in central Delhi, following a heavy downpour in the city on Sunday morning, police said.

The man, identified as Kundan Kumar, was a resident of Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand. He was driving a Tata Ace from the New Delhi Railway Station to Connaught Place when he got stuck in the waterlogged area, they said. While he was trying to manoeuvre his vehicle through the waterlogged underpass, Kumar got stuck and allegedly died due to drowning, said a senior police officer.

He used to drive the vehicle, owned by his cousin Pritam, to transport goods, police said. Kumar used to live near a taxi stand in Shankar Market area and is survived by his wife and two daughters, they said. His body has been shifted to a mortuary at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital wherein it will be handed over to his family after a post-mortem.

 
 

Police said they suspected that he died due to drowning since no external injury marks were found on his body. Inquest proceedings have been initiated in this regard, they said. The national capital received its first spell of heavy rains, which led to waterlogging in low-lying areas and brought traffic to a standstill at key stretches in the city.

The Minto Road underpass also witnessed heavy waterlogging, following overnight heavy rains. Meanwhile, a DTC bus and two auto-rickshaws were stuck at the Minto Bridge underpass due to waterlogging, following which three people were rescued, Delhi Fire Service officials said.

A call regarding the stranded vehicles at the Minto Bridge underpass was received around 7.54 am. A team from the Delhi Fire Service was rushed to the spot for rescue work, Atul Garg, Director, Delhi Fire Service, said. "A DTC bus and two autos were trapped due to waterlogging. The driver and conductor of the bus and an auto driver were safely rescued by our personnel. There was no passenger in the bus," he said.

The fire service personnel used a ladder to bridge the gap from a footpath and the low floor bus, which was submerged in the heavily waterlogged underpass, to rescue the stranded. Waterlogging at the concave railway underpass (Minto Bridge) during the rainy season is a recurring issue. Incidents of vehicles getting stuck and people being rescued have been reported in the past as well.
