Was listening to an interview of a Kar Sevaka from my community. Man got married in Aug '92. He had previously been to Rama Janmabhumi a couple of years ago and witnessed Mulayam Singh's police shooting at the Kar Sevaks. 1/
Since he was newly married, he agreed to sponsor a person to go to Ayodhya in his stead.

But as December approached, he wasn't content sitting at home, so he too left.

Reached the Janmabhoomi sthan in the wee hours of 6th December. 2/
There was excitement all around, but no inkling as to what would transpire. In the morning, he was standing about 40 ft away from the section where leaders like Advani and others were addressing the crowds. The crowd was slowly becoming impatient with mere words 3/
Out of nowhere they started running towards the ugly masjid. Before people could even realize what was happening they were all over it. The energy, the fury in the crowd wasn't human he says.

By afternoon there were huge piles of mud. The ugliness had been razed 4/
They were all seated there when late in the afternoon PejawaraSri arrived there. And told them that this land would be taken over by the government the next day. They had a day to prepare a makeshift temple there. 5/
Again, all the karsevaks, like streams of ants he says, got to thr task of cleaning away the piles of mud, with no equipment but their arms. By evening the land was flat, and a makeshift temple was created and Rāma-Lallā was seated there /END
