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."
Anjana has already established contact with some of the NODAL organizations working for the handicapped and has developed prototypes for many of their specialized needs.
Anjana plans to spread her net wider still in order to identify and systematize specific needs, disability by disability, by developing designs and production prototypes.
Their feedback will help Anjana ultimately to develop a full catalogue of toys for the entire range of handicaps, marking the toys according to disability, the function they perform and instructions on how they should be used.
