Hanuman or Anjaneya is the son of Anjana Devi. She was once a celestial maiden & was born as a monkey-woman as a result of a curse. She was living happily with her husband Kesari. When king Dasaratha performed a yagna praying for off-springs, he was yielded a pot of payasam(pudding) from the yaga fire. His wives shared the prasada & thus Rama, Lakshmana, Bharatha & Shatrugana were born. A portion of this payasam was carried by the Lord of winds - Vayu Deva & fell in the hands of Anjana Devi and she gave birth to a lovely & strong son. Since Vayu Deva was responsible for the payasam reaching Anjana, he is also considered the father of Hanuman. (Vayu Puthran Hanuman).

FUNFACT: Anjana is now a Hindu girl name meaning "Mother of Hanuman."
