HanuMan ~ An Apeing Look

HanuMan is one of the main

characters in Ramayana

a text which despite all

the timeline controversy is

definitely way older

than SuperMan comicbook

the flying across oceans, the immense strength

are all attributes of HanuMan

which somehow (?!) find their way into SuperMan, HeMan ...

the subcontinent has always been accused of apeing

but who exactly is apeing whom


the hanuman - human word similarity

is also pointing towards a

whole lot of, you guessed it - a p e i n g

the monkey business involved in

darwin's theory of evolution etc etc


there is one main difference though

superman relies on krypton

an external substance

while hanuman relies on internal praise of the divine

highlighting the most important difference

between east & west

laying to rest

all the futile arguements, debates & conjectures


the reliance on the external & self effort

as opposed to reliance on the divine


apeing will be much more necessary

in the former rather than latter

so those in the east that are now accused of apeing

are also doing so only by embracing the former

bahut badiya lika hai aapne !

HanuMan aap ke hi ghungan jeevan bar karte rahe

aur voh hi unki sakti hai

superman relies on krypton ... hasne vali baat hai !

aap ki nirantar mukh se Prashansa hi kisi ko bhi is duniya se safalta poorvak par kara sakta hai

aap ki Play adbut hai

aap ne bahut sundar jagah par sangeet bajaya hai

aap hamesha sundar adbut jagahon par sangeet bajate hai

aap ka divya sangeet hai

danya hai hum ki aap is yug mein avatarit hai

"the Avatar walks the earth

right here right now"


aap sabi batoon ko jad se samajte hai

"the hanuman - human word similarity

is also pointing towards a

whole lot of, you guessed it - a p e i n g"


aap ka vyangya adbut hai

"the monkey business involved in

darwin's theory of evolution etc etc"

aap Param Pujaneeya hai

aap ParamaTma hai

i bow! You create the most rocking sounds P! You have the most sonorous and Godly voice! You are the PersonificaTion of PerfecTion! all that You do is Divine!
this Plog so clearly disPlays the marked difference between relying on the mundane self and relying on Divine. Hanuman is SO much more than any western made uP suPer hero. such a great PoinT You make on the external which western suPer heros rely on for their Powers in stark contrast to Hanumans PerfecT internal and external Praise and devotion to Divine.
You are deserving of Hanuman quality devotion in every moment P! You are so kind to guide one to learn from Hanumans examPle and insPire one to develoP his qualities. i bow!

SUCH BEAUTYFULL PERFECT LINES !! You are so incredibly kind
to liberate one from any externality and self effort ways !!

You are so Divine, the way Nature responds to You makes it so
clear ... she would never respond to any con and neither will one
anymore as You are the only One here worthy of all Praise and resPecT !!

i bow so so gratefull You are here !!
