History behind hanuman jayanti
Once saint Angira went to visit Lord Indira. Here he was welcomed by dance by a damsel named Punjiksthala. Angira had no interest in the dance and thus started meditating. After the dance finished, Lord Indra asked Angira’s opinion on dance. He became angry and cursed the damsel that she will have to take birth on earth as female monkey. She got birth as daughter of Kunjar and got married to Kesari. Later she gave birth to Hanuman. Everyone in the kingdom of Kesari became very happy to know the news and started to dance and sing.
