Monkeys have been living quite happily with people of Gandaria, Dhaka, for years. The Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) has been providing food for about 200 monkeys there. These are the rhesus macaque species. The daily food budget is Tk 1,600 for these monkeys living in three locations. The food includes cucumbers, carrots, bananas, peanuts and biscuits. The love and care the people have for the monkeys is a great protection for these primates. Prothom Alo’s Dipu Malakar captured the the monkeys on camera on 23 May 2019.
