Monkey-Man of India: Memorandum on an unknown Forest Race inhabit...

<b>"He informed me that with the last gang of Dhangurs there had arrived two persons a man and a woman, 'who are exactly like great monkies, Sir, and the natives call them the monkey people.'"<br /><br />In 1856, Henry Piddington, a British resident of Bengal, published a short 7-page article, "Memorandum on an unknown<br />Forest Race inhabiting the Jungles South of Palmow," in the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, Volume 24, 1856. It is this article describing his first-hand observations of an unknown species of hominids--possibly similar to the big foot or saschwatch---which has been reprinted here o the interested reader. <br /><br />This article was quoted in a Monster Quest television episode about a similar hominid known as the Monkey-man of Delhi.<br /><br />The Monkey Man of New Delhi is a hominid creature which was reported roaming Delhi in mid-2001. In May 2001, reports began to circulate in the Indian capital New Delhi of a strange monkey-like creature that was appearing at night and attacking people. Eyewitness accounts were often inconsistent, but tended to describe the creature as about four feet (120 cm) tall, covered in thick black hair, others, however, described the Monkey-man as having a more vulpine snout, and being up to eight feet tall, and muscular; it would leap from building to building like a parkour enthusiast. <br /><br />Theories on the nature of the Monkey Man ranged from an Avatar of the Hindu god Hanuman, to an Indian version of Bigfoot. It may be possible that the same species observed by Piddington in the 1800s still survives in modern India and was responsible for the incidents in Delhi.<br /><br />The appearance of Monkey man in Old Delhi is the centre-point of the 2009 Bollywood Hindi film Delhi-6 directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra. In the film, the creature, called in Hindi as "Kala Bandar (Black Monkey)" is used as an allegory to represent the evil that resides inside every man alongside God (virtue). The monkey man has never actually been caught on tape.<br /><br />In the 2011 graphic novel Munkeeman by Tere Bin Laden director Abhishek Sharma, the creature is interpreted as a misunderstood superhero, who is the result of a science experiment gone wrong. The first edition, Munkeeman Vol 1 chronicled the creatures brief appearance in Delhi, and the second edition will feature the creature in Kanpur, based on the incidents reported in February 2002.<br /><br />It is also possible that these creatures are the Mande Burung, an alleged ape-like creature said to inhabit the Meghalaya subtropical forests in the remote Garo Hills of the north east of India and in Bangladesh.<br /><br />Generally described as a large, hairy bipedal hominoid, some believe that this animal, or its relatives, may be found around the world under different regional names, such as the Yeti of Tibet and Nepal, the Ban-manush in Bangladesh, the Yeren of mainland China, and the Bigfoot of the Pacific northwest region of the United States and the Canadian province of British Columbia. It is one of the lesser-known examples of cryptozoology.<br /><br />The article's author, Henry Piddington (1797 –1858), was an English merchant captain who sailed in East India and China and later settled in Bengal where he worked as a curator of a geological museum and worked on scientific problems, and is particularly well known for his pioneering studies in meteorology of tropical storms and hurricanes. Piddington held other positions as a secretary to the Agricultural and Horticultural Society; Her Majesty's Coroner of Calcutta (from 1844); and President of Marine Courts of Enquiry.</b>

Tony Robinson-Smith, his wife Nadya, and ten Bhutanese college students set out to run 578 kilometres (360 miles) across the Kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayas. Joined by a stray dog, they slogged over five mountain passes, bathed in ice-clogged streams, ate over log fires, and stopped at every store, restaurant, guesthouse, and dzong to raise money for the Tarayana Foundation. The “Tara-thon” was the first endeavour of its kind and gave 350 village children the chance to go to school. En route, the Long Distance Dozen met a Buddhist lama, a royal prince, a Tibetan renegade, and a matriarch who told them the secret to long life. On arrival in Thimphu, they were decorated by Her Majesty the Queen. In this contemplative memoir, Tony describes Bhutan in rich detail at a transformative period in its history and reflects on tradition, belief, modernization, and happiness.

“Tokyo can be an overwhelming city.<br /><br />I was lost, but in the right way. I abandoned some of my worries and fears and I was free to just explore life. But maybe the best part of my MMA experience was arriving back at the dorm, drinking Pocari Sweat, taking a hot shower, and capping everything off with some Butadon, Japanese variety TV, and XM Radio.<br /><br />And then I ended up on TV.”<br /><br />Smitten by the charms of Japanese culture as a youth, DJ Gallow grows into a young college student and seizes the perfect opportunity; a chance to study abroad for a year in Tokyo. Along the way he encounters many unexpected challenges including that of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, which threatens to end his trip altogether.<br /><br /> In Tokyo Was Ours, DJ reflects on the lessons learned from his journey and uncovers the meaning of it all.<br />
