Bollywood actor-producer Akshay Kumar on Sunday afternoon posted a video clip on his Twitter handle, announcing that it was a matter of great pride that he had contributed towards the construction of Shri Ram temple in Ayodhya and requesting all members of the public to do the same according to their means.
Perched in front of the idol of a goddess, Akshay, in his inimitable style, narrates a story from the Ramayan that he claims to have narrated to his daughter recently. The actor cites the example of how even a squirrel had contributed towards the construction of the Ram Setu towards Ravan’s Lanka. The squirrel had sprinted back and forth between the Ram Setu rocks, the shore and the waters, wetting his body, wrapping it with sand and filling up the cracks in the Setu rocks with that sand. Similarly, Akshay called upon the public to contribute towards the Ram temple construction according to their means.
