From a CNN story:
LUCKNOW, India (AP) — He’s a revered Hindu monkey god. And now, he’s the chairman of an Indian business school.
An Indian Hindu priest performs prayers in front of a statue of the Hindu god Hanuman.
Hanuman, the popular god known for his strength and valor, has been named official chairman of the recently opened Sardar Bhagat Singh College of Technology and Management in northern India, a school official said Saturday.
The position comes with an incense-filled office, a desk and a laptop computer. Four chairs will be placed facing the empty seat reserved for the chairman and all visitors must enter the office barefoot, said Vivek Kangdi, the school’s vice chairman.
“It is our belief that any job that has the blessings of Lord Hanuman is bound to be a success,” said Kangdi.
All Hindus know that Hanuman can lift mountains and leap oceans, but ancient texts make no mention of his business acumen.
