About the Publisher
Hanuman, the son of Pavana and Anjana, was born a
monkey and yet attained a prminent place among the
Hindu Gods, by his sterling character. Hanuman's
unflinching devotion to Rama has made him the
greatest of the Bhaktas (Devotees) ever known. His
singular worship of Rama did not make him narrow
minded, or supercilious. Instead it made him more
compassionate. It helped him to bring consolation
to Sita, pining away, forlorn and lonely in
Ravana's Ashoka garden. It helped him to submit
himself years later to the buoyant valour of
Rama's children, Luv and Kush. Serious but never
solemn, Hanuman twitted his half-brother Bhima who
was out on the quest for the flower 'Kalyanasaugandhika.'
This is one of the most charming and popular
episodes in the Mahabharata.
