  1. 1. SRI RAMAYANA QUIZ‐TEST YOURSELF  2010  My   lovely children of Sri Suprabatha Sabha , ( who are my treasure ) !  I am immensely grateful to my GURU for giving me this excellent opportunity of sharing the morals of the great epic SriRamayana with you for more than one year in the SS SABHA. By this work I am sure, we have collectively pleased our mostloved and respected HANUMANJI who loves those who read, write, preach, follow, hear the ‘PATH OF RAMA that is SRIRAMAYANAThis is only a beginning in our life to follow the footsteps of Sri Rama which is followed by great men, saints of our nation andsometimes this world too. The benefits of hearing, reading Ramayana would be reaped in our life at appropriate times.I want to share with you, those questions I have used so far to handle quiz programs! The whole purpose of making a list ofquestions with answers was to facilitate all of you to focus and prepare for the quiz. Had I repeated the same questions, itwould look like an examination rather than a quiz program. So I tried my best to prepare relevant questions for quizzing. Now ,those questions are open for all to read and learn and it is not a secret anymore! There are no tough or easy questions as longas we prepare well or do not prepare well! I leave the choice to you to decide. In our life we see people who blame others fortheir own mistakes and as little children we should learn to realise what we should improve and correct ourselves. Please gothrough these questions and use it for your preparations for any quiz. For sure, there are many more questions still left out inthe Ramayana for which do not blame me. I recommend that you spend time to read widely and deeply into this epic. Anyspelling mistakes, doubts, corrections, suggestions please clarify with me directly.By the grace of GOD, I tried my best to schedule to visit SSS every Sunday for sharing the stories of Ramayana and inSaturdays for parents. Those who attended these classes and prepared with their own efforts have done very well so far.Please convey my ‘namaskarams’ to each one of your parent for encouraging you to participate in this program and thoseparents who also participate themselves. Please realise, we are successful today because of our parents and purely due to theblessings of our ‘Sadh Guru “ .When you go through these questions, you will realise how much time I would have spent for this noble cause! Of course, it ismy duty .Still I have to spare time in my busy work – family cycle like your own father or mother. This is done purely to showmy love and affection towards YOU CHILDREN and as my service to Sri Rama – as the ‘little squirrel did for bridge construction“across the ocean to get noticed by SRI RAM!One last word … of wisdom! Whatever good things you do, do it for your own liking and with passion and not for others toappreciate! Most important is not to get upset if others criticize. Our work if sincere would be noticed by GOD after all HERESIDES IN ALL OUR HEARTS.We are deeply indebted to SS Sabha for this golden opportunity and encouragement to all of us .
