Next Question (in line with the question above)

If Valmiki wanted to name it after Hanuman, why did he name it 'Sundara' Kanda and not 'Hanumat' Kanda ?

Vicky: You can go ahead and post your question as well.

^^^^ From what I read, Valmiki did want to name it after Hanuman, but Hanuman objected.  Valmiki then suggested to him the name 'Sundar' and Hanuman agreed, probably unaware that the 'Sundar' here was named after him.

Vicky, your question next.

Karna is said to have 9 sons, only one of whom survived him. Out of the other 8, which son did not die during the war at Kurukshetra?

Sundara is said to be another name of Hanuman, because he was suppposed to be extremely attractive and divine-looking, so everything about him was supposed to be 'sundar'.

Sudarman or was it Sudaman or Sudama? I don't remember his exact name. I think it should be one of these.

You're right...it was Sudaman. Apparently he died during the fight at Draupadi's swayamvar...but I'm not sure how accurate that is. Especially since that would mean Karna had a grown son and was still competing at the swayamvar? -__-

We have heard of vimanas in our mythology. Other countries too have similar devices in their myths, like, the flying carpet, etc.

Name the king who is said to have possessed a flying throne.
