The Times Of India’s editorial board, which had long taken a hard line against advertising, welcomed a billboard that featured the words “Jumma-pura-Pulav” (Amen to the world) printed across a white background.
It had been commissioned by the city’s leading Hindu temple, the Vishnu Temple, to promote the holy month of May, during which Hindu festivals are celebrated across India.
The billboard had been placed in front of the temple and a few miles away from the Hindu-majority district where it was located.
The Vishnu temple had already erected several billboards that had the same message in their messages, including one on the Mumbai-Delhi highway, one in Delhi, and one in Bangalore.
But this one had more impact than any of them.
On the billboard, a smiling Hindu monk stands with his back to the camera, offering a prayer.
A small girl stands beside him, holding a small stick that resembles a small broom.
The message was: “May all the people in the world have a happy and prosperous life.”
This message resonated with the community in the district, said Manoj Sharma, the temple’s director of marketing.
A Hindu temple in the state of Karnataka.
“The message resonates with the people who live in the area, who live near the temple, who have no money and no work,” Sharma said.
“When you put it up on a big billboard, you are giving the impression that the people are happy and the temple is happy.”
As India’s largest religion, Hindus form an important part of the nation’s fabric.
The state of Tamil Nadu, the largest Hindu state in India, has a population of around 3 million.
For decades, Hindu-Muslim clashes have erupted periodically in the country’s largest cities, as well as in parts of the country that are largely Muslim.
“Our temple has always had an image of having a place of worship in the heart of the city, and it is our responsibility to put the message out there that people can be happy and be free,” said Vishnu’s president, D.J. Singh.
The billboard was placed in the city of Bengaluru, near where a local Hindu temple has erected several large billboards in recent years, including ones that promote the sacred month of Rajasthan. “
If the message of a small girl is to the people of India, then we will have to show that message to the whole world.”

“We felt the need to do something to spread the message, to make the message bigger than the billboard itself,” said K.K. Srinivasan, the city councilor of the Hindu Kush region, a district of about 200,000 people.
“To put up this billboard, which was a large advertisement for the temple itself, with a small message, was just a bit of an intrusion in our temple’s sacred space.”
Srinadasan was one of a number of prominent Hindu leaders who supported the billboard campaign.
“People need to be aware of the message we have,” he said.
In Bengaluru alone, there are about 150 billboards, many of them placed by the local Hindu religious community, according to a city government report.
“Bengaluru is the capital of the state, so there is an important role for us to play,” said a senior official in the Karnataka government.
In the city itself, the billboard went up in March. “
In a community like this, if a message is too strong, the community will be alienated,” he added.

It was not immediately clear how much money it raised for the Hindu temple.
But the billboards had a positive impact.
A local Hindu leader, who did not want to be identified, said the billboards were a way of getting people to understand that people in India and across the world had a lot to offer.
“I think that the message that the billboard has been able to convey is that there is nothing wrong with the message.
People in India are very kind, very generous, and have very good intentions,” he told The Times.
“And if people see that, and if they take a little step forward and try to improve themselves, then things can change.”
The Hindu community has long been a vocal critic of advertising, saying that it glorifies the past, promotes violence, and is seen as a form of Hindu nationalism.
But with the rise of global commerce and social media, the practice has also come under fire, with critics saying it’s used to manipulate people’s minds and influence them in ways that are detrimental to their well-being.
“Hinduism is a religion of peace and tolerance, and that is why we are here today, to support that,” said the temple official, who
