Legend of Hanuman Ji

Price : $16.75
ISBN # : 9788182902367
Author : P. Dewan
pages: 142
Edition : Hardcover
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Shubhi Publications
Published : 2011

During the British Raj mainly in the 1800s divisive theories were floated to the effect that the North Indians were Aryans and the South Indians and Sri Lankans were Dravidians. The story of Sri Ram The Ramayan was sought to be shown as a conflict between the two. The Vanars were portrayed as a primitive tribe, if not as monkeys. In view of the mistreatment of The Ramayan, this book asks Who was Hanuman ji? Who were the Vanars? Were they monkeys? Or were they a primitive tribe? Or neither? Where was Kishkindha In Karnataka? Where was Ravan's Lanka? Is it the same as modern Sri Lanka? Who were the Rakshases? Were they what we now call Dravidians? Did they speak a Dravidian language? Were they all evil, if not demonic as well? Were they dark skinned? And what kind of a person was RSvan , the king of the Rakshas clan? Ours is not a revisionist version of the story of Sri Ram and his devotee Hanuman ji. Indeed, it is accounts that deviate from ValmTki ji's Ramayan that are.
