Hanuman on the Fly

I just returned from India where I took several different forms of transportation to get around, including trains, buses, rickshaws, and taxis. In some ways, the cabs there are similar to Thai taxis as many of them are decorated with religious iconography. One iconic figure that appeared in several of the cabs was Hanuman, the monkey god from the Hindu epic, the Ramayana. The drivers must be able to relate well to him considering that Hanuman often faces difficulties, but always finds innovative ways to fly away from bad situations.
