The decision to name the child 'Ram Rahim' was made by the baby's grandmother, Husna Bano. Explaining the choice, Bano expressed a desire to convey a powerful message of unity between Hindus and Muslims. The christening of the child with a name associated with Lord Rama exemplifies the spirit of communal amity prevailing in the region.

Simultaneously, in the Sambhal district's Chandauli area, a petite temple dedicated to Lord Rama was inaugurated during the celebration of Pran Pratishtha. Remarkably, this temple found its place within the delivery room of a private nursing home. Expectant mothers were treated to glimpses of Lord Rama's image as they prepared to give birth on the same Monday.

Dr. Vandana Saxena, the physician at the nursing home, shed light on the unique decorations and rituals undertaken to commemorate Lord Rama's consecration in Ayodhya. The delivery room and neonatal unit were adorned with saffron hues, symbolizing the auspiciousness of the occasion. A miniature temple dedicated to Lord Rama was also established within the neonatal unit, further accentuating the sanctity of the space.

Dr. Saxena elaborated on the religious rituals performed, emphasizing that Hindu expectant mothers received prayers dedicated to Lord Rama before childbirth. Additionally, the Hanuman Chalisa, a devotional hymn to Lord Hanuman, was recited, underscoring the convergence of religious practices in this unique celebration.
