HAPPY BIRTHDAY HANUMAN 11 April 2017

Hanuman Jayanti

The 12th of April this year marked the birthday  of one of the most popular deities in India and Nepal and some could argue of the RAMAYANA: HANUMAN.

As a devotee to Lord Rama whom if you remember in Hinduism Hanuman is venerated as as one of nine incarnations of Lord Vishnu and is celebrated for demonstrating loyalty, courage and strength in the face of the great hardship and torture, such as you've witnessed in the pages of Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance .

Unlike most characters in this epic who have many regional variations in their names, HANUMAN'S is left unchanged throughout Asia and he is widely considered the most popular amongst children for his humour and showmanship, which I've tried to capture in my interpretation. Don't worry, in future issues he regains his confidence to help his friends in need, so it is no surprise that he is considered by many to be the first 'superhero'
