    As the 2019 general election approaches, the ghosts of 1992 are back on India's streets. There seems to be a well-organised clamour for the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya, in clear defiance of the Supreme Court. And so, for the many who do not know what the original Ram Temple movement is, and the many who may have forgotten the mayhem, eminent activist and journalist Teesta Setalvad presents a ready reckoner on what the Ram Temple movement really is about, and why it has been so conveniently resurrected, twenty-six years later, in 2018.
