Before you start jumping to conclusions, let me brief you a bit about him. He’s one of the bunch of monkeys seen frequently around my house, literally speaking, we do have a lot of stray monkeys hopping around in this part of India. And mind you, it is a well-developed city that I live in, but owing to a lot of trees around here, these guys are frequent visitors to our living rooms. These black-faced monkeys turn out to be quite a menace at times, jumping over our terraces, disrupting wires and pipes, sneaking into the kitchen and getting off with food and yes last but not the least bullying everyone around! Only this time he wasn’t bullying me….you have to see this to believe it!
This was a drama that had unfolded right in my living room. Fortunately, the window panes were shut tight and that’s how I was brave enough to find humor in the situation and click to my heart’s content from the other side of the glass! Well, I do enjoy studying animals trying to gauge their thoughts and whatever it is that they try to communicate through their expressions and gestures. And instinctively my imagination goes rampant, as my mind starts weaving a story, trying to comprehend what really could be, had they actually opened their mouth and started to speak! I’m sure they yearn to put it in words like we do….but have not other way to give an outlet to their yearning but through their gestures.
So, after a few months past the above instance’s occurrence, today when I reached the parking area of the building where I reside, I was met with a rather funny yet baffling sight! Watch this picture closely and help me comprehend what’s happening. Tell me what you think is happening…who’s saying what?
