Macaquian thinking

Blogger friend, travel writer , photographer, Lakshmi Sharath, posted some wonderful photos after a trip to Valparai, situated at an elevation of 3500 feet, in the Annamalai mountain range of the Western Ghats., in southern India. Closeby is the Indira Gandhi Wild Life Sanctuary , where , lion-tailed macaque, the Nilgiri and the common langur, Malabar giant squirrel, elephant, gaur, spotted deer, sambar, barking deer and wild boar reside.

Lakshmi met these lion tailed macaque, on her visit. And they were visiting Valparai.

The two,
having arrived,
in search of water,
which has disappeared
from their
own locality,
take a breather,
in the land
of their descendants,
the culprits
who encroached
into their land.

The young one
must now learn,
the basics
of intruding into houses,
and looking
for food.

You think
grandpa Macaque
in the forest would help ?
