I watched s'day episode.. It was good seeing Hanuman demolishing the demons.. The cave scene was good.. I liked it very much.. something interesting...
I never knew Hanuman had such a son.. That was new n interesting too..
Finally, his son opened the door and paved the way to the temple where Rama and Lakshmana wil be brought..
I liked it when Hanuman told that he doesn't have time to show his love as he needs to save hs prabhu and ilaval (means the younger)..
It was good to see Hanuman fight different types of demons. The fun does not end here - there is more to come even after Ahiravan and Mahiravan are killed.
I had only read that Hanuman went into the Patal Loka (the seventh and the last of the underworlds) and saved Ram and Lakshman. I thought that there might have been hurdles to cross but never knew what they were and which versions of Ramayan describe the events. Besides, the Ahiravan and Mahiravan chapters are not a part of Valmiki Ramayan or Tulsidas Ramayan or Kambaramayan. I know Krittivas Ramayan (Bengali) includes this event - apart from that I have no information.
The first time I saw the story of Hanuman's son was in Jai Hanuman. It was telecast some years back. All the stories I read and saw had described a fight between Hanuman and Maharadhwaja and when the truth was revealed Hanuman blessed his son and told him about his mission. Maharadhwaja stil refuses saying that he cannot fail in his duties. Hence, Hanuman had to overpower his son and tie him up (some versions say Hanuman bound his son with a rope and some other versions say that he used Maharadhwaja's own tail).
I had read a story earlier reagarding why Maharadhwaja was born . . .
A time before Lord Vishnu took incarnation as Rama, Devi Parvati found Her Lord Shiva meditating upon a name that sounded so sweet and melodious and gave the whole surrounding immense peace. It reverbrated across the distance and the ages. Curious, She asked her consort what mantra it was and what was its speciality. Lord Shiva said that it was the name of the next incarnation of Lord Vishnu - RAM. It will be the taraka mantra for all ages to come and proceeded to explain the greatness of Rama Naamam. Devi Parvati was astounded and asked Lord Shiva if He would not help Lord Vishnu in this glorious adventure. Lord Shiva replied that He will assume His eleventh form and help Lord Vishnu in this endeavour. Devi Parvati asked what part She should play when He helps Lord Vishnu. Lord Shiva replied that He will be a celibate and She need not participate in the adventure. Though Devi Parvati pleaded with Lord Shiva, He remained firm. Not willing to spoil Her husband's wishes but eager to take part in the divine play, Devi Parvati vowed that she too will come down to the Earth and bear a child from this eleventh form of Lord Shiva without breaking His vow of celibacy. She was the crocodile who swallowed the sweat drops and gave birth to Maharadhwaja. In some versions, she is portrayed as a gigantic fish.
That is all I know regarding this story
Hanuman is played by an acotr named Vikram Sharma. He had done an excellent job. The Sagars have chosen their cast very well.
