yadä yadä hi dharmasya

Kumbhkaran thought the benediction to take seat of demigod Indra. Kumbhakaran was very powerful and already oppressing poor people and sages. Therefore demigods and people are fearing that if he will get the benediction then he will become more powerful.
Therfore indra requested goddess saraswati to sit on kumkaran tounge.Therefore when kumbhkaran turn came to ask for benedicition from lord brahma.Goddess saraswati sat on his tounge.At that time instead of asking of above benediction from lord brahma,he asked to sleep for long time.
Lord Brahma said tathas tu(same will happen)However when he came to senses,he regretted for it and asked to change the benediction ,lord brahma said what I have said can’t be changed but you can get up for one day from 6 month sleep.
Just recently,people in india celebrated Lord Rama birthday.Lord Rama birthday is called ram navami in India.In other parts of the world,it is celebrated with different name.It mainly comes in February or March month of every year.
