Once a monkey along with its trainer arrived in Ayodhya. Seeing the monkey perform various stunts, Lord Rama demanded a pet monkey. King Dashratha immediately called all the monkey breeders in his empire and asked them to showcase the best monkeys that they had. Lord Rama checked all the monkeys but liked none of them.
Seeing Lord Rama cry, he went to guru Vashishtha and asked him what to do. He told him to go to Kishkindha and to ask King Sugreev to give his monkey. Dashrath immediately sent his ambassador to Kishkindha. Upon listening the ambassador’s message, King Sugreev handed over the monkey to him. His name was Hanuman.
As soon as Lord Rama saw the monkey, he hugged him. Wherever he went, Hanuman always followed him.
One day Lord Rama was flying a kite. He flew the kite so high that it reached devlok (heaven). Jayant’s (Lord Indra’s son) wife saw the kite and kept it with her.
When the kite didn’t return even after a long time, Lord Rama grew impatient and asked Hanuman to search for it. Being a loyal servant, he immediately started to search for it and found the kite in the hands of Jayant’s wife. When he asked her to hand over the kite, she refused and said that she would only return after she would meet the kite’s owner.
Hanuman ran back to his master and told him the matter. Lord Rama asked him to to tell her that he would meet and bless her in Chitrakoot. As soon as Lord Hanuman told this to Lord Indra’s daughter in law, she immediately accepted and gave away the kite.
