Bheema And Hanuman is one of the comic books from Amar Chitra Katha's mythological series. Created for children between 9 and 16 years of age, it presents an encounter between Bheema, one of the most powerful men from The Mahabharata, and Hanuman, a powerful ape from the Ramayana. In this book, during the Pandavas' period in exile, Draupadi approaches Bheema with her wish to have a certain special flower. The latter sets out to fulfil his wife's wish and heads for the mountain where the flower is known to blossom. While on his quest, he comes across an ape lying across his path and blocking it. The ape turns out to be none other than Hanuman. Bheema tries to move Hanuman's tail to get to the other side. However, despite Bheema's great strength, Hanuman's tail does not budge an inch. What follows is Bheema's attempt to get past Hanuman and retrieve the flower he seeks. It is revealed that Bheema and Hanuman are half-brothers and both owe their superior strength to their father - Vayu the Wind-God. This edition of the book is a 2010 reprint.
