While the time for the rituals would be over by the time you read this, you may still observe 27 April as Hanuman Jayanti as a Hindu that increasingly feels the need to register his community’s presence in society, thanks to the distorted version of secularism constantly marginalising him.
Lord Hanuman is worshipped during different times of the year according to regional beliefs and the type of calendar that is followed in a given geographical location. Hanuman Jayanti celebration in the month of Chaitra is the most popular one in north Indian states.
On Hanuman Jayanti, temples dedicated to Lord Hanuman and Lord Rama witness spiritual discourses at dawn before sunrise and stop it after sunrise.
Lord Hanuman, an ardent devotee of Lord Rama and Mata Sita, is also known as
Anjaneya for he was born to Mother Anjana. His father being Kesari and spiritual father being Pavana, he is referred also to as Kesarinandan and Pavanaputra.
