Rammanohar Lohia had great love for Rama and Ramayana. He called Rama "an embodiment of dignity". He organized a Ramayana Mela near Ayodhya. His birthplace Faizabad is close to Ayodhya.
What Rammanohar Lohia has to say about Sri Rama and Sri Krishna is significant. "Eight parts of Vishnu were embodied in Rama. His was a limited personality. But Krishna had sixteen parts of Lord Vishnu. Hence his personality was as mighty as the ocean." Lohia wrote that Rama said little but listened to others.
Today cricket is the most popular game in India, especially in towns and cities. This is a game of the leisurely class. It is a gift of the British Raj. Cricket does not offer as much exercise as football. Rammanohar Lohia wanted that India should progress in sports so as to earn recognition in the Olympic Games. But he did not think highly of cricket.
