Hanuman Ji (His Vanars and His Lanka)
Hanuman Ji (His Vanars and His Lanka)
Description
Back of the Book

The story of Sri Ram an Hanuman Ji has been subjected to much distortion and malign political abuse.

During the British Raj mainly in the 1800s divisive 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 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? It is 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 id nor demonic as well were they dark skinned and what kind of a person was Ravan the king of eh Rakshas clan?.

Ours is not a revisionist version of the story of Shri ram and his devotee Hanuman Ji indeed it is accounts that deviate form Valmkiji’s Ramayan that are.

 

From the Jacket

Sri Ram is the most popular deity among the Hindus Hanuman Ji is his gates devotee and also the keeper of the gates that lead to Sri Ram. The devout believe that the only way to reach Sri Ram is through Hanuman Ji. That Hanuman ji and the Vanars were monkeys is a belief that has been with the Hindus at the folk level for centuries perhaps for more than three thousand years.

This Books Asks:
1) Who was hanuman ji? Was he a person given t deep reasoning or a simple monkey like creature? Beliefs about a deity who might have been Hanuman ji have been traced to the earliest Hindu scriptures the Rig Ved Downwards.

2) Who were the Vanars? If they were monkeys how come their women looked like Human women and did not have tails? Were the tails of the male Vanars mere ornaments?

3) Where was Kishikindha? Most devout Hindus believe that it was in present day Karnataka but the original Ramayan says that it was north of the Vindhya Range of hills.

4) Where was Ravan’s Lanka’s? Was it the same as modern Sri Lanka? All the Ramayans say that it was southwest of India and a hundred yojans from the nearest peninsular shore.

5) Who were the Rakshases? If they were Dravidians and the Dravidians are a linguistic group not a race why did they not speak a Dravidian Language? 6) What kind of person was Ravan the king of the Rakshas clan? He had in the past too abducted women and married them. This book at the good as well as within him.
