Every time we experience negativity in the world and within ourselves, every time we encounter jealousy, rage and frustration, manifesting as violation and violence, we hear or read the Hanuman Chalisa. Composed over 400 years ago by Tulsidas, its simple words in Awadhi, a dialect of Hindi, and its simple metre musically and very potently evoke the mythology, history and mystery of Hanuman, the much-loved Hindu deity through whom Vedic wisdom reached the masses.

Very monotonous narration. I kept losing interest in the midst of a sentence. Starts of only with the wrong pronunciation of the author's name and follows up with a lot of other wrong pronunciations, not just of Hindi words but of names as well as of Sanskrit words also.
This needed a narrator who actually understood what this book is about instead of someone who just read it like a school textbook.
