Monkey Madness!


This is one of my favorite images.  It is from Delhi and shows  conundrum of humans and monkeys in India. Monkeys are everywhere  because of the  Hudaman, the Hindu  monkey god.   

Hindus revere Hanuman, the Monkey god and care for monkeys in his image. He is the god of strength and energy, also characteristics of the animals.   But the monkeys are growing  and producing without limit. Monkeys can not be killed.  Indians feed the monkeys as you can see  so when they are chased away, they just return and reproduce !  Monkeys are very smart and are attracted to hats, sunglasses, and hands in pockets where they think you hide their food.

Here is another of my favorites.  A monkey adopting a puppy ! Monkeys and puppies. . . two in one!

It is important to be forever on “Monkey Alert” while walking around India !
