04/01/2012: Happy Sriramanavami - The 9th day after Ugadi is celebrated as Sriramanavami. On this day the birth of Lord Rama is celebrated. Panakam is one of the prasadams that is offered for Lord Rama on this day. It is a refreshing drink as well. Sriramanavami falls during the peak Summer for South India and a glass of this chilled drink would definitely quench all the thirst.
