AMOUR BONDING

In the Indian religious and philosophical traditions, all knowledge is traced back to the Gods,Rishis and Sadhus.Sadhus have a unique characteristics and one of them is being alone they have to be detached from all their closed one to find moksha. And in their journey this sadhu has find this monkey whom she calls Ganga. She is his friend, daughter everything, she is a spark of joy in his tough journey towards moksha. In our Indian law it is illegal to captivate a animal because they are meant to be free, but we have control over our emotion and love. This sadhu treats this monkey ( GANGA) as his own daughter and take care of her need more than he does for himself. They are each other support, strength and a medium to avoid their loneliness in a journey to obtain moksha.
