外文标题：Now, men ape langurs in Lutyens’ Delhi
NEW DELHI: Men are now into monkey business in Lutyens' Delhi. About 40 trained youths have been pressed into service to disguise as langurs — even screech like the simians — and scare away monkeys from the VVIP zone.
These men are summoned by the New Delhi Municipal Council to spots, including the Parliament House, that come under the siege of monkeys. The 'langurs' suddenly appear from behind bushes and trees to drive away the simians through sounds and gestures.
On Thursday, urban development minister M Venkiah Naidu acknowledged through a written reply in Rajya Sabha that men have been posing as langurs to keep the monkey menace in check.
According to NDMC sources, the practice started after real langurs were barred from being kept in captivity. By all accounts, the human 'langurs' have proved to be effective in their new role.

NDMC sources said the men are paid Rs 700-800 per 'visit' and have not been hired permanently. They get work for around 10-15 days a month, earning anywhere between Rs 7000 to 10,000. They have even been hired by RWAs in the area.

Due to influx of people into Delhi other social,economic , environmental,transport,housing problems are bound to escalate. if we leave Delhi for Monkeys, people can move to forests. Create a new city outside Delhi and move all govt related activities to that purpose built city. A modern city with state of the art infrastructure. Shift Parliament, President's palace, ministries, ministers accommodation, etc etc. It will give a new outlook and a better image to India. We have combined NY and Washington DC into one. Its time to plan for the future. Old buildings in Delhi with historical importance can be converted into museums and art galaries. BS.
So when do we get humans to imitate dogs to get rid of dog menace in cities like Bangalore? I guess, not very far.
Wah.... finally, Indian Parliamentarians seem to be leading the way in closing the evolutionary cycle. Man evolved from monkeys, and now man is himself turning into a monkey.

Another way to reduce unemployment! This way, as in some of the US Zoos, India too can employ some persons in the zoos in place of animals.

China is using monkeys for other purpose, and India using men against monkeys.
Very soon even the animals in the ZOO's will be replaced by Humans in the hides of those animals and they will be even trained to act like those animals.

They are not real monkeys. They are all foreign spies, dressed like monkeys. That is why they were not able to recognize the "langurs" as fakes.

You mean to say - One Monkey fooling another Monkey.
