    The Lord surveyed the Ram Setu and said "Hanuman, how diligently and
    strenuously you and your vanara sena had built this bridge several
    centuries back. It is remarkable that it has withstood the ravages of
    the climatic and geographical changes over centuries. It is indeed an
    amazing feat especially considering the fact that a bridge at Hyderabad
    built by Gammon using latest technology collapsed the other day even
    before they could stick the posters on its pillars."

    Hanuman with all humility spoke "Jai Sri Ram, it is all because of your
    grace. We just scribbled your name on the bricks and threw them in the
    sea and they held. No steel from TISCO or cement from Ambuja or ACC was
    ever used. But Lord, why rake up the old issue now."

    Ram spoke "Well, Hanuman some people down there want to demolish the
    bridge and construct a canal. The contract involves lot of money and lot
    of money will be made. They will make money on demolition and make more
    money on construction. "

    Hanuman humbly bowed down and said "Why not we go down and present our case"

    Ram said "Times have changed since we were down there. They will ask us
    to submit age proof and we don't have either a birth certificate or
    school leaving certificate. We traveled mainly on foot and some times in
    bullock carts and so we don't have a driving license either. As far as
    the address proof is concerned the fact that I was born at Ayodhya is
    itself under litigation for over half a century, If I go in a traditional attire with bow and arrow, the ordinary folks may recognize me but Arjun Singh may take me to be some tribal and, at the most, offer a seat at IIT under the reserved category. Also, a God cannot walk in dressed in a three-piece suit and announce his arrival. It would make even the devotees suspicious. So it is dilemma so to say."

    "I can vouch for you by saying that I personally built the bridge."

    "My dear, Anjani putra, it will not work. They will ask you to produce
    the lay-out plan, the project details, including financial outlay and
    how the project cost was met and the completion certificate. Nothing is
    accepted without documentary evidence in India . You may cough but
    unless a doctor certifies it, you have no cough. A pensioner may present
    himself personally but the authorities do not take it as proof. He has
    to produce a life-certificate to prove that he is alive. It is that
    complicated."

    "Lord can't understand these historians. Over the years you have given
    darshan once every hundred years to saints like Surdas, Tulsidas, Saint
    Thyagaraja, Jayadeva, Bhadrachala Ramdas and even Sant Tukaram and still they disbelieve your existence and say Ramayana is a myth. The only
    option, I see, is to re-enact Ramayana on earth and set the government
    records straight once for all."

    Lord smiled "It isn't that easy today. Ravan is apprehensive that he may
    look like a saint in front of Karunanidhi. I also spoke to his mama
    Mareecha, who appeared as a golden deer to tempt Sita maiyya when I was in the forest and he said that he won't take a chance of stepping on
    earth as long as Salman Khan is around."

    Jai Shree Ram
