Monkey Helps Blind Devotees

This is so beautiful I had to share it. The pic and excerpt are from an Indian newspaper.

“Two blind people wanted to drink water at the RagiGudda temple, Bangalore. When they were unable to operate the tap, this mother monkey opened the tap for them, allowed them to drink water, drank some water herself and then closed the tap before leaving the scene.”

Sometimes it takes a beast to remind us what humanity is.


  1. well, isn't that just a beautiful excerpt with an amazing photo to go with it. I love the story. yes, we humans DO need stories like this every now and then...

  2. Wow, this is very beautiful story!
    Very good job monkey!

  3. What a beautiful story! We can learn so much about kindness from watching nature at work. This story is especially heartwarming to me since my cousin suddenly became blind a few years ago. His story is an amazing one, with hope. If you'd like to read it sometime (no pressure lol), you can find it here:
