This book of stories has been written as a celebration of the most lovable and inspiring qualities of Hanuman, the beloved monkey-God of the Hindu pantheon. Hanuman's life is an inspiration because most of us go through moments of mischief and laughter, sadness and doubt, triumph and trouble, just as he did. However, he possessed a great medicine to deal with each one of life's situations--his love for Sri Rama. And we, too, can draw courage and strength from his actions. TheHanuman Heart is an attempt to bring the 'Hanuman Charit' or hanuman's character closer to young readers in English. Fifteen stories illustrate the life of Sri Anjaneya, from his birth to his old age as a meditative yogi. Throughout, the work attempts to present a lively, inspiring and uplifting picture of Hanuman to children. About the Author Born in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, in 1961, Scharada Bail grew up in Mumbai.
