INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

KALANEMI

Indian Demon

Another Demon Uncle of RAVANA.

He tried to destroy HANUMAN by disguising himself as a hermit. After inviting him to a meal HANUMAN was warned by a crocodile (who was really a nymph).

The tale ends with a flick of HANUMAN’s tail which hurled the demon so high he bounced off the underside of Heaven and splattered when he hit Earth.
