68 Years of enjoying Freedom

68 Years of enjoying Freedom
Wishing Happy 68th Independence Day to all my Indian friends, brothers and sisters! Well, you may be wondering what's the relation of that monkey in the photograph with 15th August 2014... right? OK, cutting it short, this was the expression I got from the monkey as I drove him away from the guava tree of our garden. I understand it completely that he's a poor victim of deforestation and I tell you honestly I got no problem if he can eat up half of our guavas from the garden. Problem is, these monkeys waste a lot of fruits by throwing onto the ground half-eaten, which is not only wastage in true sense but also leaves a lot of cleaning work for us! Third thing is they mercilessly pooh over our courtyard after episodes of overeating and it has been several occasions when I had to throw those dried-sticky excreta with the help of a disposable glove. Forget those shitty events. The only reason I chose this monkey photo for my humble Independence Day greetings is- I found a big, big, really big similarity of my facial contour with this monkey's one in 90% cases when I visit Government offices with some unavoidable necessity. I mostly come out of Govt. places with this monkey's expression that clearly depicts my 68 years of enjoying freedom. Jai Hind!
