They will be going to the Janakpur to take part in the festivities of Vivah Panchami. Todd is a festival that marks and celebrates the wedding of Lord Ram and Devi Sita.
Yogi Adityanath and Rajnath Singh will travel to Nepal to take part in the age-old tradition where pilgrims and saints undertake a journey from Ayodhya, the birthplace of Lord Ram to the Janakpur, the “maykaa” or maternal house of Devi Sita. This journey signifies the route the baratis must have undertaken when they took part in the wedding of Lord Ram and Devi Sita.
As Yogi Adityanath and Rajnath Singh will travel to Nepal, they will not only be taking part in a cultural practice that holds great symbolic significance for the Hindus but will also be strengthening diplomatic relations with Nepal. The tiny landlocked nation of Nepal is not just India’s neighbour at a strategic location but is also the only Hindu country in the world. Nepal has never been occupied or been ruled by foreign invaders and has had cultural ties with India that dates back centuries.
The ties India share with Nepal has been often described as one wherein daughters are married and a livelihood is earned freely without any discrimination occurring due to a man-made boundary. It is hoped that the visit of Yogi Adityanath and Rajnath Singh further strengthen these ties.
