Have you heard the saying ? "Human See, Human Do-And That Goes for Monkeys, Too" A viral video that has made the internet go gaga over a 'special student' who takes his education very seriously. Yes! this is not a figment of imagination, you guessed it right! A monkey was seen attending classes in a school situated in the state of Jharkhand. The video has garnered so many views and netizens approve of this diligent student.
As per a Scientific American study, this incident has an evolutionary route. Monkeys like to imitate individuals they like. A series of experiments have been performed to explain as to why and how monkeys mimick humans. Evidence suggests nonhuman primates have an affiliation to imitation, which explains the video.
This video supposedly from Hazaribagh shows another 'encounter with the wild' incident where a Langur attends classes with other primate batchmates in a government school, sitting with his back to a fully packed classroom. The teacher seemed not too bothered by this newcomer. The school headmaster claimed that the monkey visits every morning classroom at 9 a.m.
It has also triggered a flurry of memes and humorous retweets, one of the tweet said,"the monkey seem determined to crack NEET this year" which happens to be one of the toughest medical entrance exams in India.
The video was shared by a Twitter user named Deepak Mahato, it already has accumulated quite a few hundred likes and shares, we wouldn’t be surprised if this adorable video crosses thousands of views and likes. Mr Mahato has also shared a eye catching caption along with the video. Forest officials were called to take monkey away from concrete jungle but the team was unsuccessful.
A similar incident happened at Rohtas, Bihar's private clinic, where a monkey and her baby presented at a Clinic to visit the doctor. In the video female monkey was seen holding an infant monkey patiently while the doctor examined. They presented with wounds on the head and legs that appeared to have arisen from a fall. Dr. SM Ahmed attended their wounds and motioned the mother monkey to get seated on the stool which she complied to. In the video, doctor was seen escorting monkeys and requesting onlookers to make way for them.
Its not new that animals continue to amuse us and show us their humorous side time to time. Their unexpected and adorably cute behaviour brings so much joy in our lives. Their antics are enjoyable and refreshing to watch. The student, monkey was later shown to be chilling on one of the benches back rows of the classroom and left after the class got over. The attendance of monkey has grabbed the attention of many, unlike most Homo sapiens, this langur has not flunked a class in a week.
Although humans have evolved but we still need to take lessons from this monkey to be regular, and attentive to our goals.
