Tejinder Chauhan, a farmer from Punjab, sold his agricultural land in 2011 and started creating Ravan effigy. He began from 175 feet in 2011 gradually increasing it to 185 feet in 2013 and 210 feet in 2016 with the effigy to be made of same height this year as well.
Tejinder Chauhan says no facility is available to extend the height, therefore, has to stop at 210. The height of Ravan is increasing in proportion to the increasing crimes in the world. If we go higher, we won’t find any more machine or man to hold it upright so; we stopped there.
