With water scarcity becoming one of the most pressing issues of our time, a viral video featuring a monkey will put to shame those doing little to conserve water.
In the 14-second video, the monkey was seen cupping its hands to try and stop the water flow from a leaking pipe. In its desperation, the wild animal then uses a couple of dry leaves to plug the leak.
The incident came to light when Twitter user Niharika Singh Panjeta shared the video on her feed. “If other beings of the #wild can have such #grace, #intelligence and #sensitivity …then I really don’t know what went wrong with us #humans .. #whoaretherealanimals ? ” she wrote.

No human in this world🌏🌍 understand these kind of if the same doesn’t happen to them. Until or unless human will suffer for drinking water they would not understand
