This incident happened last year when I was in Std. VIII. My friend Malavika and I were in Science class when we saw a monkey come and sit in front of the classroom. It was big and hairy. The girls got scared and some sat above their desks (as if that helped!). Then the boys tried to scare it away, but it didn’t move. Finally our P.T. teacher came with some crackers and lit it. The monkey got scared by all the noise and ran away!
