The day Hanuman watched his beloved Rama walk into the river Sarayu―at the end of an 11,000-year reign―was one of the most heartbreaking days of his life. Having been granted the boon of immortality, Hanuman is blessed to live on Earth as long as the Ramayana is told and remembered. And so, to heal his grief, he begins to travel all over the world and has many adventures, thrilling and unexpected, ensuring that the Ramayana is never forgotten.
In this collection of forty exciting tales, read how Hanuman, the monkey-god, vanquishes the thousand-headed Ahiravana, defeats a giant wasp-demoness, races with Garuda to see who is the fastest and has many other escapades.
Action-packed and fast-paced, these reimagined stories of chiranjeeviHanuman’s later adventures are magical, heart-warming and bittersweet. Continuing the traditional folk practice of inventing adventures for Hanuman, Amit Majmudar takes us along on the monkey-god's long and lonely, and rollickingly eventful, immortality.
