Mon­key busi­ness

Governance Now - - BRIEFINGS -

To deal with the in­creas­ing money me­nace in the par­lia­ment area, the Lok sabha sec­re­tar­iat has is­sued a cir­cu­lar giv­ing some tips. it asks the parliamentarians to not make a di­rect eye con­tact with mon­keys and do not “ir­ri­tate” them. it also strictly ad­vises not to feed the mon­keys and in case a mon­key col­lides with their ve­hi­cle then do not stop. The cir­cu­lar also states that the mon­keys’ “khokho sound” is nor­mally a bluff and the parliamentarians should ig­nore it and walk away calmly. some other tips in­clude:

• do not cross the path be­tween a mother and her in­fant • do not run while pass­ing through mon­key groups • do not go near a dead or wounded mon­key • do not hit the mon­key. Keep hit­ting the ground with a big stick to make mon­key leave your house or gar­den
