Karadi Tales presents the story Hanuman, the monkey with the broken chin, who is celebrated in our mythology for his wisdom, courage and loyalty. Young Hanuman, the son of Vayu the wind god, wanted to play with a large red fiery ball… except that the ball he went chasing after was the sun itself! Magnificently narrated by eminent Jnanpith award-winning playwright Girish Karnad and vividly illustrated by Srividya Natarajan, this story of the monkey god is set to a beautiful background score by 3 Brothers & A Violin. Young Hanuman is written by Shobha Viswanath, author of other popular Karadi Tales including Birth of Krishna, Krishna’s Conquests, and Hanuman the Mighty.
