Raipur: Engrossed so deeply in devotion to Lord Hanuman, Akhilesh Sharma has collected over 5000 pictures of ‘Bajrangbali’ and got his name enrolled in the Guinnesa Book of World Records.
A resident of Chhattisgarh’s Raipur, Sharma has collected more than 5,000 pictures of Lord Hanuman and published a book, ‘Mere Hanuman’. This book contains pictures of Bajrangbali, which were collected from India as well as Indonesia, Bali, Thailand, and other countries.
Speaking to the media, this unique devotee said that it took 10 years to collect the pictures featured in the book. “I have been reciting Sundara Kanda for the last 35 years. Around ten years ago, I had attended a marriage function and got a photo of Lord Hanuman, which is on the book’s cover, and thereafter started collecting the pictures,” said Sharma.
“This book contains information related to Lord Hanuman’s birth, his family members, and others. After people told me that pictures of Lord Hanuman in a considerable number were not collected by anyone, I applied to the Golden Book of Records,” added Sharma.
