India celebrated the festival of Ram Navami on Tuesday, commemorating the birth of the Hindu God, Lord Rama. Devotees typically celebrate the occasion by fasting and offering prayers in temples, while schools, government offices and stock markets close down for the day.
It is said that by uttering Lord Rama's name, one can get rid of their sins and attain salvation. There is a belief that repeated chants of his name help one to attain purity, peace, joy and prosperity.
