While dryness concerns have eased after India got 42% more rain than average this week, according to IMD, water distress remains a pertinent problem across the country. Water storage is a significant area that needs to be addressed, and people need to be trained as to why water should not be lost and preferably saved, as much as probable.
Now, a video of a monkey who is very mindful about not wasting water has gone viral with netizens hailing the animal for doing something that the people of the country neglect to do every day. Netizens have even requested Lord Hanuman while committing to the monkey.
A Twitter user, Name @Shariph19, tweeted a TikTok video of Mankey drinking water.
However, what makes the video unique, and viral, is the fact that the humble monkey does something that many of us neglect to do. The monkey can be seen drinking water directly from a tap and then loses no moment to close it once it has finished drinking its thirst.
Since the video was posted by Dr S.Y. Quraishi, the former Chief Election Commissioner of India, this has been viewed over 69,000 times with people hailing the monkey’s movement of closing the tap once its thirst was satisfied.
