{image-hanuman flag_30062008.gif}Lucknow, Jun 30: A Hanuman devotee plans to send a rare encyclopedia, articles and pictures of the Lord to Democratic party's presidential nominee Barack Obama, who keeps a Hanuman medallion among his good luck charms. Businessman Sunil Gomber would be sending an album of 'The visual encyclopedia of Lord Hanuman' along with 31 related articles and three rare laminated pictures to New York tomorrow. Sunil, who had converted his residence in to a museum of Lord Hanuman, told UNI here today that the article and pictures were around 1,600 years old.

''I am sending this collection to Obama as he has expressed his faith on our God and we also want his success in the Presidential elections later this year,'' he said. Mr Gomber, is in wholesale book business, said recently he had dreamt about reciting ''Hanuman Chalisa'' and ''SunderKand Path'' in the White house and even hoisting a Hanuman flag in several parts of the Presidential building.

The 46-year-old senator from Illinois, who defeated his rival Hillary Clinton in a 17-month long electoral battle for Democratic party nomination, carries a ''tiny monkey god'' apparently representing Hanuman with him for good luck.

A recent photo posted on Time's White House Photo of the Day collection shows the first ever Black-American nominee of a major US party for the Presidential elections carries with him a bracelet belonging to an American soldier deployed in Iraq, a gambler's lucky chit, a tiny monkey god and tiny Madonna and child.

That ''tiny monkey god,'' of course, appears to be a statue of the Hindu monkey god, Hanuman, says the posting but editors and the photographer had not identified it as such.
