Ayodhya (UP):
The sixth edition of the Deepotsav in Ayodhhya, UP will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the eve of Diwali.

About 18 lakh earthen lamps or diyas will be lit on Sunday in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh as part of Deepotsav, the Diwali celebrations that will include fireworks, a laser show and the staging of Ramlilas.

There will also be a laser show, 3D projection mapping show and fireworks. Ramlila will also be staged by cultural troupes from other countries and states. 

At the Ram Katha park, Lord Ram, Goddess Sita, Lord Lakshman and Lord Hanuman will be shown descending from a "pushpak vimana"

Ayodhya Divisional Commissioner Navdeep Rinwa said more than 15 lakh earthen lamps will be lit by over 22,000 volunteers at Ram ki Paidi near the Saryu bank. The rest will be placed at important intersections and spots. 

Volunteers have been told to arrange 256 earthen lamps in a square and the distance between two squares will be approximately two to three feet, Deepotsav organisers said.

People in large numbers visited Ram ki Paidi Saturday evening to have a feel of the Deepotsav. The earthen lamps placed there were not lit and volunteers were seen urging the public to watch their steps.

Youngsters were busy taking selfies and uploading these on their social media accounts.
