An artist from Jaipur, Navratna Prajapati, who is also a Guiness Book record holder has created a miniature idol of Lord Ram on the tip of a pencil. He said he would present it to the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust for keeping it in Ram Museum.

Jaipur: With artists across the country coming up with innovative ways to participate in the Ram Mandir consecration, a sculptor from Rajasthan, who has his name in the Guinness Book of World Records, has created a miniature model of Lord Ram's idol on the tip of a pencil.
