Employment markets in everything

Many youths toil day and night and yet cannot take home a pay packet of Rs 10, 000 per month. However, a black-faced langur Mangal Singh has landed a job which earns him a package of Rs 1.2 lakh per annum!

The langur is hired by the Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) here as a 'guard' to keep common marauding monkeys at bay

Humans had failed to stop the attacks.  I enjoyed this part of the story:

The marauders had also injured several employees. Sharma said that many times, he saw these monkeys 'reading' departmental files and then tearing them into shreds but he could not help save important data.

For the pointer I thank Swetha V.V.

Well, it is good that someone read these “important” files.

LOL. Most likely Mr. Sharma is pocketing a good chunk of the “salary”, with some token for the langur’s caretaker. The creativity of the Indian bureaucracy is well’tuned to siphoning money in to their own pockets.
