Bhaum Pradosh 2021: Story

A very old woman devotee of Hanuman ji lived with her son in a village. She had unbreakable faith in God and she observed fast and used to perform prayers on every Tuesday, which is considered Lord Hanuman's Day. Once, Hanuman ji visited her place and asked her to clean the floor and then cook for him. The old lady was unable to bend so she requested humbly to ask for something else. After coming across her request, Lord suggested her to light a fire on her son's back and then cook. Although she was scared that her son might die, she still chose to cook food on her son's back. However, after the food was ready Hanuman ji asked the lady to call her son for prasad. Astonished, as she was thinking of death of her son due to fire, found him well and alive. This old lady dropped on the feet of Lord Hanuman ji and was blessed with fortune and happiness.
