This year the Ramayana Masam starts on 17th of July . The Adhyathma Ramayanam of the great savant Thunjathu Ezhthachan is normally read for the entire month during this period. This treasure like book occupies a special place in Any Maklayali Hindu home .Unfortunately a very large number of Maru Nadan Malayais do not know how to read Malayalam script and because of that they are unable to read the Ramayanam, as was the practice of their ancestors. Not only that even if they want to play the audio , most of them do not understand the import of those nectar like verses. One of my young friends who does not know how to read Malayalam requested me to type out the entire Ramayanam in English and also give verse by verse meaning of the entire work. By the grace of God Rama , I started doing it. When I was working with the translation of Sundara Kandam of that great work , one day a huge monkey appeared before in my flat in Koramangala, Bangalore , where at that time I was alone and was found sitting near my lap top. Without doing any harm to any one or anything , that monkey left after a few minutes. This incident gave me more zest to complete the work quickly. Over the last two years more than twenty five thousand Malayalis have used my transliteration and translation to read Ramayana during the Ramayana Masam . To all those who do not know how to read Malayalam I have a request. Play the video of Adhyathma Ramayana by Sukumar, Canada and read the Ramayanam in English as typed by me, side by side understanding its meaning . Please pass on this information to all the Malayalis whom you know and preserve the great culture of Our own Kerala and get the blessings of Rama.
