Hanuman, or Aanjaneya, was born to Anjanadevi and Vaayu, the wind god. Extraordinary from the moment of birth, there are fascinating stories about his childhood. The most famous story is the one that led to his name, Hanuman. One day, as a child, Hanuman was hungry and looking upto the sky, he saw someting glowing in the east. To him it looked like a delicious orange and he flew up to grab it. Despite the heat that searing him, Hanuman flew closer and closer to the sun. So close he was that Indra, the mighty rain god, feared that this child would indeed grab the sun, and therefore he hit Hanuman with his powerful weapon, the vajrayudha (thunderbolt). The blow made Hanuman fall back to the ground and his face swelled up, leading to his name Hanuman as Hanu means cheek in Sanskrit.
The story of Hanuman and The Sun describes the innocence, faith and joy that leads even a child to accomplish great tasks, to challenge even mighty conquerors and to be glorified in legend.
