Hanuman is an iconic representation of valor, loyalty and devotion expressed in the form of an animal; Monkey. He is called by many names including Anjaneya, Maruti, Pavanputra, Kesharinandan, Arbiter, Anjaniputra, Bajrang Bali and Hanumat.
The story is about valor, bravery, loyalty and commitment of Hanuman to Rama, it is also a narration of triumph of good over evil.
In my town, a new Hanuman Temple was built not far from my home. I had just finished my college. It was theinitiative of a friend Anjaneya who and I traveled in the train to school. My father was one of the first one’s to donate funds towards the temple.
Here around Dallas in 2006 or 7, a new Hanuman Temple was built in Frisco, and I had talked with my friend Mayor Mike Simpson to work on getting the permit to the temple and had shared a few tips with the organizers initially. The City of Parker (Next to Plano) had a history of denying permit to build the temple in the eighties and an Arabic school in Richardson in the Nineties… that is all the in the past. Thank God it is history now.
My dream is to build a cohesive America, where none of the 312 Million of us have to live in discomfort, anxiety or apprehensions. More about my dream at America Together Foundation.
