BANGALORE-AUGUST 23: This is the story of a male adult monkey that has
metamorphosised as God Hanuman. No joke. A monkey sitting atop the statue of
God Hanuman for the past twenty-two days is attracting streams of people to
this unbelievable happening . It all happened at Thimmaganapalli. A monkey
just came inside the Altar or sanctum to the surprise of the priest and
other on lookers. They bet the monkey with the stick and many have even
threw stones. In the melee the monkey bore all this and came out with a new
avatar as monkey God. The effort of the villagers to chase the monkey did
not yield any results. The monkey doesn't eat anything, not even a delicious

"This is the reincarnation of God. This monkey is no ordinary monkey. It has
come here twenty two days back and sitting here day and night. I come in the
morning and perform pooja till late night. Thousands of people across are
coming to see this wonder. For the people of this village this is for good.
For the first five days we tried to chase this monkey away from the temple
but it did not budge and inch. Then the elders decided that it is God and we
are performing pooja," said Krishnamurthy, priest of the Hanuman temple.

The word spread across attracting thousands of people to see this ardent
devotee. "I have come from Hindupur to see this wonder. This is really God
coming in new avtar and reincarnation. For me this is God and for Good, said
Nirmala, a visitor.

Even now the monkey is sitting atop the statue like a rock. People are
thronging and performing pooja. (ANI)
