A video that is making rounds on the internet shows a monkey trying to give its little one a bath. The hilarious yet adorable video was shared on Twitter by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Susanta Nanda.
The video showed the infant resisting as mama struggles to make it take a bath. At one point, the mother can be seen forcing her child into the water, and holding the kid down while splashing water.
“This is the way mother teaches their kid that no one else can take a bath for you,” Nanda wrote, while sharing the undated video on his Twitter feed.

Many Indian mothers give a similar type of bath by placing the infant between their legs ( spread straight) .In South India it is very common.
