While Hanuman was in the water and his body sweaty, his sweat got into the water. A mighty fish, Makar Dhawaja swallowed his sweat and thus conceived.  Hanuman’s Son who was also named after his mother, Makar Dhwaja was thus born.

The fish was caught by Ravana’s stepbrother Ahiravana who ruled Patal (hell), the netherworld. When Makar Dhwaja grew up, Ahiravana was impressed by his strength and virility. He then made him his soldier.
