Is it funny?

This incident was told by my room mate and she was told by her friend's mother. Her friend's mother, though a Keralite, was born and brought up in Uttar Pradesh, where you could find monkeys and peacocks in plenty. When she was  very young, I mean, very very young, she was abducted by a monkey.

Would do you believe this?

Yup, She was taken away by a monkey and it tucked her to its lap and then the monkey took her away to the terrace of her house. Every one was alarmed and started thinking of rescuing the baby from the monkey's clutches. They were not ready to scare the monkey as they thought it would throw the baby from the terrace.

Somebody got a terrific idea that literally saved the baby. They started flaunting different fruits and it attracted the attention of the monkey from the baby.
" That's how I was saved," she said. She also joked that she was really cute that the monkey could not resist its temptation.

I was just thinking, what would have happened if they did not get that fruits?

Oh! Yes, I would believe it. We had monkeys where I grew up. When I was very little, I was staying home from school because of a fever and when my mother walked in to check in on me sometime in the afternoon she found monkeys in the room. (they always got into our homes). Apparently I told my mother "It's ok. The monkey was just checking if I had a fever!"
