A sage was feeding water to a family of Monkeys in Lord Murugan's Temple at
Madurai, India.The monkeys treat him like one of their own, totally unaware of the
distance between the two species. This is called Natural Bonding. Scientifically,
the overall DNA sequence similarity between human and chimpanzees is about
99%. So close but yet so far ...

This picture depicts the strong and giving hand of the sage, paying his dues to his progenitor.
