Rupee symbol in ms academy website using rupakara font

I have used the Indian Rupee symbol in Management Scholars Academy website to quote the course fee for our PMP boot camp here http://msacademy.in/pmp-rupakara.htm using rupakara font. Rupakara is a new font created by Michael Everson to give support to the newly invented Indian Rupee Sign, which has been assigned to U+20B9 by Unicode. You can see the rupee symbol in my site only if you have the rupakara font installed in your computer. You can download the font for free from here http://www.evertype.com/fonts/rupakara/

The scene from Ramayana:

In the cosmic stage show, sometimes a villain grows into a powerful force, so powerful that he even overthrows deities or devas, who stand for all that is moral and right. One such rogue was Ravana and devas pray to Lord Vishnu to help them. Vishnu promises them protection and declares, “Be relieved of your fear! You will be safe under my shelter!
