Hanuman Jumping over Fire

on: 20 October 2012

This was one of the highlights of the Kecak performance at the Uluwatu amphitheatre. In the Rama and Sita love story, Hanuman, the monkey king, had the role of trying to rescue the kidnapped wife of Rama.

In this dramatized part, Hanuman ran, skipped and jumped into the ring of fire causing mayhem to the villians. In this image, the faint figure of Hanuman on the left was about to jump into the ring of fire.

A little about me

Josh For some, it's shopping therapy. Others, movie therapy. Yet more, reading therapy. For me, it's writing therapy.
Why writing? When I travel, I enjoy first-hand the experience like in shopping therapy. But when I write about my travels, I live vicariously the experience again, as if like a movie sequel (or more like GroundHog Day, except that this is fun!). Yes, writing evokes the memories, the fun and the not-so-fun but all-in-all it gives the satisfaction of reliving the sense of place once more.
With images, it enhances the experience down one's travel memory lane. With this in mind, I hope to share my travel stories in words and images with you. For your escape therapy! More...
