In spite of individual and collective efforts made by the residents of S Block - Greater Kailash 1 - New Delhi - India they have been unable to prevent the intrusion of a troop of extremely violent, lost and hungry monkeys.

The dilemmas of residents was cited to the current office-bearers of S Block Residents Welfare Association and the matter was dynamically tackled by Sh. Yashwant Pal, senior resident and committed RWA (Residents Welfare Association) member. But, that seemed to have worked-out for a short while only. 

For the safety of our elderly parents and children, it’s critical that we now jointly address this persistent issue by seeking the active support of government agencies and organizations to take them, and resettle them at a wildlife and rehabilitation sanctuary.

This unnatural Human-Animal Contact is not healthy or safe for either us or for them. They seem to have either lost their homes or have been unfortunately abandoned by monkey breeders.

This troop of monkeys have been seen violently rattling the Yellow-Painted Gas Pipelines, and are using them to climb up to the house terraces, and are chewing at Cable TV and Internet Cables.

They have been found eating out of Garbage Bins, and drinking ‘straight up’ from the overhead Water Tanks, which residents use for R.O. Water Filters, for Bathing, or for washing their clothes and utensils.

Here are tips to protect yourselves and your families without causing these primates harm:

  • Lock Your Water Tanks
  • Secure your Gas Pipes
  • Fasten Your Internet And Television Cables
  • Cover Your Garbage Bins
  • Protect And Monitor Your Children and Elders
  • Put Signages For Unaware Guests, House Help and Passers-By
  • Trim Trees Touching Your House Walls (Get Permission First)
  • Most Crucially, Don’t Risk Your Spiritual Beliefs And Feed The Monkeys

Wild Monkeys can be exacting, unreasonable and unpredictable. They can transmit dangerous diseases such as (Falciparum) Malaria, (Mayaro) Virus,  (Yellow) Fever, and carry a threat to human health. Most of these diseases are spread through a single bite or exposure to the saliva of monkeys or their nasal secretions. The rest can spread through exposure to monkey feces.

Animals mark their territories and Human Beings secure their personal spaces – these are intrinsic behaviours that protect our biological existences.

Hence, we must cautiously safeguard our neighborhoods and ourselves too.

"There is a better way to say it, and an everlasting way to be heard.
Be straightforward, but not sharp; Be direct, but not pointed.
For blame never won consent, but only strengthened their defence.
Speak your truth, and express your existence.
For without your freedoms, your spirits shall remain entrapped.
And without your individual voices, you're just a dispersible crowd."
