In a unique convergence of cricketing prowess and spiritual significance, Tendulkar and Kohli have been extended invitations to play a pivotal role in the Pran Pratishtha (consecration ceremony) at Ram Temple. The iconic duo, whose influence extends far beyond the cricket field, will share the stage at this momentous event.
The ceremony is expected to host a galaxy of dignitaries, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The list of invitees spans diverse fields, with notable names such as Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Ratan Tata, Mukesh Ambani, and, of course, the cricket maestros Tendulkar and Kohli.
Tendulkar and Kohli, regarded as cricketing deities themselves, have often been called upon to grace public events, inaugurate establishments, and inspire young minds. This occasion is yet another testament to their influence and significance in the cultural and spiritual tapestry of India.
The Ram Mandir, a symbol of cultural and religious significance, is rapidly nearing completion, with the consecration ceremony scheduled for January 22, 2024. Over 8000 dignitaries, including 6000 religious leaders and 2000 eminent personalities from various domains, will mark their presence on this sacred occasion.
Interestingly, Tendulkar recently inaugurated a life-size statue of himself at Wankhede Stadium, while Kohli, in a fairytale moment, surpassed Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI centuries in front of his idol. The World Cup finale witnessed both cricketing legends in attendance, sharing a moment despite India’s loss.
With Kohli on a break from cricket, the question lingers whether he’ll manage to attend the ceremony, considering the impending Test series against South Africa starting on January 25. The anticipation among fans is palpable, eagerly awaiting the presence of these cricketing icons at Ayodhya’s historic event.
As the stage is set for a confluence of spirituality and sportsmanship, the world watches in anticipation as Tendulkar and Kohli add a cricketing touch to the consecration ceremony of Lord Rama in Ayodhya.
