PHULHER

The courtesy and the hospitality extended by Raja Janaka to Rama and Dasharatha have become a tradition and example which are still followed throughout Hindu India as far as the means permit. Sita was married in the month ofAgrahayan and as Sita had her fill of grief and distress all through her life, marriages in the month of Agrahayan are not normallyencouraged.

Quotations from Tulsidas's Ramayana are very common on the lips of the older generation. There are thousands of Hindus in Mithila who still recite a few couplets of the Ramayana before and after taking their two principal meals. Portions of the Ramayana are read daily in a large number of homes. Not only do Hindus utter the name of Rama when in trouble, but it is also common among them to utter the sacred Rama Nama into the cars of the dying man.

All over Hindu India, during the occasion of the Durga Puja, Rama Lila parties have become pretty common. Rama Lila performances always attract thousands of people, who love to see the story of the Ramayana visualized before their eyes. Some of the Rama Lila parties have become well-known and are eagerly sought after to partake in the Vijaya dashami celebrations. The boys playing the part of Rama and Sita are held in high esteem and the sanctity of tradition is so alive that hundreds of the elderly folk even bow down before the actors. Garlands, sweetmeat (prasad) and coins are showered on them as a mark of respect.
