"Barack Obama’s lucky charm" Sandeep Sagar says 'something interesting'


Barack Obama’s lucky charm: Carries a miniature god Hanuman in his pocket

Amongst the things that Barack Obama carries for good luck are a bracelet belonging to a soldier deployed in Iraq, a gambler's lucky chit, a tiny monkey [Hanuman] god and a tiny Madonna and child
 Time magazine’s photo blog has a very interesting picture  where Barack Obama is displaying the things he carries in his pocket to bring him luck. One of them is a tiny metal statue of the Hindu god Hanuman.

But the tiny monkey god [Hanuman] statue that is among the lucky charms has four hands. In India and Indonesia, Lord Hanuman is rarely depicted has having four hands. But in the Thailand version of Ramayana, known as Ramakien, Hanuman is often depicted as having four hands
