The Ramayana is one of the largest ancient epics in world literature. It consists of nearly 24,000 verseds (mostly set in the  Shloka meter), divided into seven Kandas (books) and about 500 sargas (chapters). In  Hindu tradition, it is considered to be the adi-kavya (first poem). It depicts the duties of relationships, portraying ideal characters like the ideal father, the ideal servant, the ideal brother, the ideal wife and the ideal king. Ramayana was an important influence on later Sanskrit poetry and Hindu life and culture.

    This is really a pride for our country. The intent is also good But with the decline of use of Post, it may be a good idea to promote India & our culture by different means too.
    For eg: All bank Credit & Debit cards to promote our culture & inculcate patriotism. All ATMs to display colours on the screen to depict Indian traditions.
