For the last couple of months I had been living in Vadodara, Gujarat my favorite place next to Bangalore. Since my parents are along I am doing great deal of pilgrimage :) Well, that is a whole different story and has nothing to do with this little monkey. Only that I met the little one in one of the temples.
As usual Hindu temples are incomplete without a bunch of monkeys hanging around and also a temple visit is incomplete without getting chased or robbed by a monkey :) They are Urban Wildlife! We entered the temple complex of Mata Bala Tripura Sundari of Bahucharji, a shaktipeeth where a part of Devi Sati's hand is believed to be fallen. So- we saw a family of monkeys running around.
I was watching with amusement and this little monkey who is the honored subject of this post, stole a balloon from a balloon-man which indeed bursted by the touch of little monkey's nail. Startled by the sudden burst and the accompanying noise, little monkey first threw the flat balloon away. Then picked it up and tried to blow air into it!
It tried and tried hard to blow it, biting and running around, changing the seating positions around its mother who was patiently watching all the drama but pretending to ignore. Well, may be the little one got tired and at last sat for few minutes looking at that green piece of shattered balloon.
I stood there watching them and clicked few pictures. I was distracted by my mother who was waiting for me to be in the fast growing line. At last the Mommy Monkey decided to take a leave and the little monkey followed still holding the balloon!---
