There is no hiding to the fact that monkeys are one of our closest cousins. They understand human’s feelings very well. In a recent incident which took everyone by surprise, a monkey entered a funeral and consoled people mourning the death of their loved ones.
In a video surfaced online which has gone viral on social media, a monkey can be seen entering a funeral of an 80-year-old man in Nargun. As relatives mourn his demise, monkey joined the grieving family. Soon after that, money walks up to a crying woman and then puts hands on her shoulder trying to console her.
“The sound of loud wailing possibly drew its attention. It attends the funerals and mimics how we console each other,” Parameshwara Nayak, a resident of the town told Hindustan Times.
If reports are to be believed, this Langur has been spotted at other funerals too and it consoles people and then walks away.
