An easy way to remember Rahu Kalam
Some one asked me a while back how easily to remember Rahu Kalam. I was suggesting that is just a simple calendar item to remember but we need to ensure the fact that the time specified is valid only for the days when the sun rise is at 6 AM. He actually persisted on his doubt that whether always a calendar lookup is necessary.
I just thought there should be some easy way to make one remember the timings of Rahu Kalam for different days. A quick Internet Search got me the following simple statement:
"Mother Saw Father Wearing The Turban Slowly".
Mother = Monday = 7:30 - 9:00
Saw = Saturday = 9:00 - 10:30
Father = Friday = 10:30 - 12:00
Wearing = Wednesday = 12:00 - 13:30
The = Thursday = 13:30 - 15:00
Turban = Tuesday = 15:00 - 16:30
Slowly = Sunday = 16:30 - 18:00

I hope that this would be very useful for everone to remember the Rahukalam periods that occur everyday. There is a common belief that Rahakalam and Yamakandam are inauspicious and Gulikaikalam is auspicious but the Wiki article states otherwise. Perhaps if some reader could clarify the same, it would be beneficial to everyone.
