Lucknow: Some call it a coincidence while the majority believe it is a miracle. In the fields of one Horilal Rajput in Bidhuna at Bhure Purwa village in Aurraiyya district, a 5-feet tall statue of Lord Vishnu was discovered on Thursday.
A labourer Siyaram while digging in the field in the afternoon spotted the statue, buried deep inside. The labourer informed Horilal and other villagers and with everybody’s help the statue, measuring about five feet, was dug out.
Appearance of the Lord Vishnu’s statue in such a fashion made people delirious with devotion. Horilal said that, his son Ranvijay, who has been unwell for the past eight months, has told his parents about a recurring a dream in which an unknown figure has told Ranvijay to “take me out from your fields”.
The statue of Lord Vishnu has been cleaned and placed near a tree in the fields. As the news spread through word of mouth, thousands of people form neighbouring villages have started arriving at Bhure Purwa village. The women offered prayers and sang devotional songs to the idol. The villagers feel that the emergence of the statue would be good omen for them.
