HE WAS NOT FRIGHTENED OF US
Mehera J. Irani
Now I knew that these monkeys are not at all afraid of women, and I had an idea. "Mani," I told her, "put on your slacks and draw a moustache on your face, then that monkey might think you're a man and go away!"
So Mani drew a moustache above her lip, put on her slacks, and got a stick. She sauntered over to the monkey and brandished her stick at him. Again he bared his teeth! He was not fooled. He knew that Mani was not a man, so we had to be patient until he left of his own accord.
