The Ramayana is the holy book of Hindus. In Kerala during Karkkidaka Masam, which is the last month of Malayalam calender, the epic Ramayana is read in Hindu homes and temples. This year Ramayana Masam begins on July 17th and ends August 16th.

The elders and children in the family sit before a traditional Kerala lamp and recite the Ramayana daily at the evening time.
