Metro Monkey

The Delhi Metro seems to have hired a monkey in order to scare away other monkeys along the train route:

The Delhi Metro authorities say they have employed a large black-faced langur monkey to frighten away other monkeys who were worrying passengers.The monkey was kept on leash for a month at one of Delhi's biggest stations in the Kashmere Gate area. Its owner was paid $150 for its services. The step was taken after a couple of incidents in June when monkeys boarded the trains, scaring passengers. Thousands of simians roam the streets and are considered a public nuisance.

  • Well, it's about time. How long will it take people to realize that any problem can be solved by throwing enough monkeys at it?

  • unrelated to this post:

    I was checking desi pundit to see you have not done at pick-up-and-post in DP at all for a long time. I was thinking - A good section of people that you read is not read by other DP members. So if you don't post there at there would be signifcant lack of representation.

    and as soon as i thought that what do i see ? chenthil's post about kiruba in desi pundit. Well done mate. Makes up for your absence. I think you should starting picking up some maanga posts and put in DP too. there are some really good posts.
