I smiled and said that Hindu nation has been made, the announcement is pending. Hindu Rashtra will also be announced. He said that how is this possible, I said that everyone's application is accepted at Bageshwar Baba's place. I also have an application as per his wish, Lord Ram's wish will be there and the work will be successful. We have to have unwavering faith in him while meditating on him and when we keep unwavering faith in him then Ramji will add such coincidences as he adds stones to the bridge to go to Lanka, similarly we are sure that Hanuman ji will join his army for the Hindu nation. Give and the work will be successful."
