Dear Friends I think that monkeys are very intelligent animals. Monkeys even without teaching can do lot of work that we all do in life. Monkeys can pick and drop any suitcase or other small things like human beings ? Monkeys can make some of expressions also if we trained them they can do all of things we do ? Monkeys even can dance like human being when I was very young I use to go to see monkey dance ? So what you think if we teach monkeys would they be like another human beings....?? If I earn some good money I have plan to open school for monkeys !!! Thanku Ganesh

I'm thinking you are in India? I'm in mid-America, so I don't have very much interaction wih monkeys. I'm sure they do have alot of intelligence, and can learn all sorts of things humans do. But can they really think about things? Do they ever wonder who they really are, why they are here, and what they are doing in those monkey bodies? Do they ever wonder if there is a God? I don't think we can train them up to do that. I think we should just let monkeys be monkeys. It's a temporary situation. If they are lucky, they'll be born in a human form in their next life. Then they can contemplate those deeper issues.

May be you dont have much monkeys around your place thats why you are bit negative...else you would have supported the idea. Yes I am from India And When I was Young I use to feed monkeys with own hands..... Without training if they can do lot of human work ...I think with 12 year of primary education they would be more less like human beings ..... If I get success I will employ monkeys in my company free of cost it will save lot of salary for employees Thanku Ganesh

Forgive me, you are correct. I didn't mean to be negative. Those monkey "souls" are indeed devoted to God, as they do spend their lives living around and in those temples. I still say we should let them be, however. There are too many humans who need those jobs, don't you think?

Hi Ganesh44, I suppose monkeys can be trained because they clever enough and they are more intelligent then some humans, the only thing is they cannot speak so its best to leave monkeys where the belong, in the forest and let them be free of human's chains. Tamara

Monkey's again??? Well yes they are very intelligent and can do several things that humans do.I think they are more cleaver then dogs are because dogs we have to train them to do some jobs but monkeys are intelligent naturally. Oh plan to open a school for monkney's is nice and something different,I think it would be fun to see them learn something. I think monkey's are naughty too.

We may teach them many tricks and all of those things that we humans can do but we can never really make them like we are. Theire animal instincts is far more superior in their species and we can only she a part of it but never will they be able to act like we do.

I don't think they can be trained to do everything. It seems they don't have the same mental capabilities, although there are a lot of things they can be trained to do. They can carry things and perform simple logical tasks, but I'm not sure how much further their capabilities go. But maybe I'm wrong, and one day monkeys will be using Mylot and complete tasks... ;-)

Dear friend, I hope they could do a lot if trained well but still there would be limitations. But I am sure to a certain extend they would much helpful in police department where lots of corrupted police are increasing.

I live animals, but I don't have any experience with monkeys. I believe in animal intelligence, hoverer, I am not sure if monkeys will enjoy working for people. Maybe only few spices of monkey are safe for people.... School for monkey to do what?....dance is easy, dogs can dance too.... I would like an idea if schooling is with love and patience...
