Ok. Let’s not.  don’t like Johnny Bravo either.

Remember, how I mentioned there are animals in my college? Well, after the first semester, we were shifted to another block, which thankfully was free of monkeys till now.

During this past week, this one certain monkey (see picture below) has been visiting our block, particularly our class room.

First time it came, we had a break and it entered our class through the door, and leaped onto the desks. When a guy tried to shoo it, it almost clawed him. And then, it walked off to a window and sat there, baring its teeth and yawning as if it ruled us insignificant homo sapiens. It was in class for a whole 10 minutes before heading out of another window. What was I doing all this long? I was lugging three bags, protecting them from that vicious, lunch-box stealing creature.

The second time was during our electronic hour, when it walked in again.The professor himself was too scared to do anything. As we moved around the class fearing the monkey and clutching our bags, the monkey paused at the window it escaped through the last time it visited. It tried forcing it open; the window was locked. And it headed back toward the door, where we were standing. We half ran out of the class and the monkey followed us until we made a full circle on the corridor. Needless to say, class was disrupted for atleast 15 minutes.

Today, it came in just after lunch.  I was on the phone with Lucid when I saw it enter. I probably yelled “Oh Shit! Monkey! Bye! ” and I cut the call. As people ran out of class, we stayed in to watch its antics. It seems obsessed with windows, I swear. It’s probably fascinated by it. Anyway, a few pictures later, it headed for us and once again, I ran out of class. That was when, another girl standing by the door of the neighboring class told me to get inside. I did and we slammed the door shut only to realize that there was a teacher in that class. Ooops.

And now, ‘The Monkey:’

Picture this:  About 3 hours to study (for the test) and we sit under a tree, overlooking a mini lawn, the sun’s rays pleasantly falling on the ground through the (very)light canopy, and earphones plugged into our ears.  Almost perfect, right?

Not if you happen to be in our college. Half-an-hour of pleasant studying, we are interrupted by a screech. A monkey. And following it are about a dozen more. *Ack! Jumps back 2 feet, clutching my iPod and notebooks.*  The monkey doesn’t seem to do anything. We lug all the bags from under that tree and onto the lawn. That’s when this big blob of murky black leaps. *Eeew. A frog!* We couldn’t sit on the lawn either.

So we trudged off to the biotech block. Sitting outside, we resume our intellectual pursuits. That’s when a few dogs come silently and sit here and there, in silence. A minute later, as if  they were part of some  special mission, about 10 dogs bound for the tree and fight with the monkeys. The dogs try to bite the monkeys who’re throwing fruits(from the tree) on the dogs.  Barks and screeches later, the monkeys were seen jumping on another tree(quite far off form us, thank you.) They disturb these 2 crows; so ensues another battle, between the monkeys and the crows.

That was that and we were off to make more sense of E.G. And yeah, an eco-friendly campus is where we study. Sure.

P.S.: Possession by A.S. Byatt is awesome. Go, read, NOW.
