The month of Karkidakam (July – August) has always been auspicious as it is considered to be the Ramayana Parayanam month. This month is auspicious for all Hindus as we try to fill our lives with holy thoughts, good deeds and good speech.

Chanting of the Ramayana is done in every home which is believed to be the ultimate way of attaining moksha. We too recited the Ramayana at our school with devotion in the afternoon, immersing ourselves in the sanctity of the month.
