Monkey. Thirst. 2 Blind men

Two blind persons wanted to drink water at the RagiGudda temple, Bangalore .

When they were unable to operate the tap, this mother monkey opened the tap for them, allowed them to drink water, drank some water herself and then closed the tap before leaving the scene.

P.S. :  Do share this pic with your friends . It is proof that humanity does exist – even if we humans have forgotten it ourselves…

  1. Hi All,

    This is the most wonderful story that I have heard in a long time and to think that there are still people in this world who don’t believe in the ‘humanity’ of animals.

    Worse still, there are still so-called educated people who use animals such as this wonderful mother for experimentation.

    Thank you so much for publishing this story. I am going to share it with an article on my website, if that is okay.

    May happiness and compassion abide with all at the RagiGudda temple, Bangalore.


    Have a bright and beautiful day!

    man will not himself find peace”

  2. Another very good example of why our cruelty to animals such as this is not acceptable, not for to anyone who has a “soul”. Animals, for the most part, seem far more advanced than humans.


  3. Good Sharing….I too believe in this. The problem starts with nature & comparision. The moment you are not satisfied, you starts facing problem in life


  4. Wow, even animals has humanity in them.. The humans in this picture just stood by and take pictures, and let the animals help the blind men instead. Amazing.
