  1. Dear Sanjeev Awasthy Ji,

    Thank you very much for the update brief and pictures on the ongoing Renuka Ji Mela in Sirmaur and thereby enabling us to have darshan of the Renuka Ji Mela with Palanquins of Bhagwan Parshuram and other deities while we are miles away from the divine place where the religious and auspicious occasion is being celebrated.

    Would like to have a glimpse on more pictures if the same are available on the net.
