Sundarakanda : It is a time less story read a million times in a million houses and will continue to be read by millions as indeed we ourselves do !!

Sundarakanda is a story of single minded pursuit ! It is a story which converts a mood of despondency to a mood of optimism and hope ! The mood at the end of Kishkindha kanda in Ramayana was of despondency of Vanaras as well as Rama too. By the end of Sundarakanda there is hope ! It is a story with many highs and lows in the moods of the chief protagonist Hanuman. But he , the Hanuman, never wavers from his objective ! That is probably the most important lesson for all !

It is a story that can convert a non believer into a believer !

We started on this 68 week celebration of one chapter of Sundarakanda every week, way back in in July 2012 on Guru purnima day ! This attempt was more like a Sundarakanda Yagnyam - सुंदरकांड यज्ञ / సుందరకాండ యజ్ఞం / - or put in another way a celebration of Sundarakanda ! The 68 Chapters have been completed with the October 18th 2013 Issue of ! With that our Sundarakanda Yagnyam too is completed. We also have the traditional Ramapattabhisheka too in Telugu and Kannada for the pleasure of our readers !
