Presenting a unique example, a retired school teacher from Bundelkhand in Madhya Pradesh has built a grand temple of Radha-Krishna. He has invested his entire accumulated capital in the construction of this temple. The day his wife died, on the same day he took a vow to build the temple. They believe that Radha-Krishna is the symbol of love. He said that I want to give this message to the youth that love is everything after marriage.
Retired school teacher BP Chansoria took a vow to build a temple in Chhatpur on the day of his wife’s death. It was his wife’s wish, to fulfill which he put in his life’s savings. The construction of the temple has taken more than 6 years and it has special artwork done on marble, which has enhanced its beauty. Some Muslim artisans have made these artifacts after spending three years. Talking about the temple, Chansoria told news agency ANI that his wife wanted to build a Radha-Rani temple in Chhatarpur.
He said, “My wife passed away in the year 2016. I had taken a vow to build the temple. It took 6 years and seven days to build it and Rs 1.5 crore has been spent. Radha-Krishna are symbols of love and they should be remembered by people for centuries. Along with Radha-Krishna, Radha’s friends Lalita and Vishakha will also be installed here.
He said that the temple would be inaugurated on May 29 and it would be dedicated to the society. Along with this, I want to give this message to the youth that love is everything after marriage, so one should never talk about sacrificing one’s love or wife on small things. Temple priest Ramesh Chandra Dixit said the temple would set an example of how a pawn lives on even after the death of its spouse.
An artisan of the temple told ANI that this temple is an example like Taj Mahal for today’s generation. He said, at one time Shah Jahan had built the Taj Mahal in the memory of his wife Mumtaz and today he (BP Chansoria) has built a temple in the memory of his wife. The idol of Radha-Krishna will be installed in the temple. The work of the temple is almost complete and it looks very beautiful. The local people are very happy and excited with the construction of the temple. He said that the temple has been constructed at Rs 1.5 crore. It is a symbol of both love and communal harmony and has become the focal point of Chhatarpur.
