Whatever you think, that you will be. If you think yourselves weak, weak you will be; if you think yourselves strong, strong you will be.”
Ramharipur Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama
Looking at Ramharipur in its present scenario with lush green ambience and magnificent houses with modern taste and amenities, one cannot perhaps imagine that 75 years ago this was an abandoned barren land, originally named Charadihi (i.e a field of a small district with its dryness, unevenness and stony). It was the crematorium of Birrah village and the secret workplace of some anti-social elements. But there are good signs even in bad. That is why the mythical God, Bhairav was there on a pile of broken clay elephants and horses under a huge silk cotton tree.
