Aug 25, 2015 16:16 IST

Urdu copy of 105-year-old Shri Ramcharitmanas was found from a scrap market at Hauz Khas in New Delhi. The book written by Shiv Brat Lal, a native of Bhadohi district, in 1904 and was later printed at Lahore’s Half-Tone press in 1910 was found in a pile of torn books three years ago.

The book was bought for 600 rupees by the Sankat Mochan temple priest family.

The copy carries a prologue of 20 pages and has four hand-drawn photographs, in which one photograph not only carries the pictures of Lord Ram, Sita, Laxman and Hanuman but also of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh.

How the book was discovered?
The family of the priest discovered the Urdu copy of the book, while searching for an ancient manuscript of Sri Ramcharitmanas, which was stolen along with other precious articles related to Goswami Tulsidas from the Sankat Mochan temple at Tulsi Ghat. The team from the Sankat Mochan temple was searching for the manuscript after it was stolen from the temple.
