Hanuman, the mighty ape that aided Lord Rama in his expedition against evil forces, is one of the most popular idols in the Hindu pantheon. The character of Hanuman teaches us of the unlimited power that lies unused within each one of us.

Hanuman's tale in the epicRamayana - where he is assigned the responsibility to locate Rama's wife Sita abducted by Ravana, the demon king of Lanka -- is known for its astounding ability to inspire and equip a reader with all the ingredients needed to face ordeals and conquer obstructions in the way of the world.

Let's learn more about this simian symbol of strength on the auspicious occasion of Hanuman Jayanti which falls on Thursday, April 15, 2014.

A budding astrologer once gave me an amazing insight about Lord Hanuman’s orange color: as a child, while venturing to the sun to eat it, mistaking it for a mango, the sun’s proximity roasted his skin into a permanent shade of reddish orange!

Another insight of my own: The Dutch must have been Lord Hanuman’s devotees at some point of time. They are the tallest and broadest Caucasians in the world (much like the tall and broad Hanuman), and even their national color is orange!
