Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

COME HERE, MY PRETTY

A New Delhi senior official fell to his death from the balcony of his home yesterday after being attacked by wild monkeys.

A gang of aggressive Rhesus macaques attacked the deputy mayor who sustained fatal head injuries in the fall.


Hindus believe the monkeys are manifestations of a monkey god and feed them bananas and peanuts, causing them to overrun public places and snatch food from unsuspecting passersby.

The Delhi High Court asked city authorities last year to find a solution to the problem. Officials there employed monkey catchers who use meaner monkeys to scare and catch the smaller monkeys but obviously, it hasn't helped to solve the situation.

Now, they're off to see the wizard!

Maybe if they fed their starving poor the banansa and peanuts instead of the monkeys and ate some cows, would solve many problems!
