While drought concerns have eased after India received 42 per cent more rainfall than average this week, according to IMD, water woes remain a pertinent problem across the country. Water conservation is a major area that needs to be addressed and people need to be educated as to why water should not be wasted and instead saved, as much as possible.

Now a video of a monkey who is very conscious about not wasting water has gone viral with netizens hailing the simian for doing something that the people of the country forget to do every day. Netizens have even invoked Lord Hanuman while referring to the monkey.

A Twitter user, by the account name @Shariph19 tweeted a TikTok video of a monkey drinking water.

However, what makes the video unique, and viral, is the fact that the humble monkey does something that many of us fail to do. The monkey can be seen drinking water directly from a tap and then loses no moment to close it once it has finished quenching its thirst.

Since the video was posted by Dr S.Y. Quraishi, the former Chief Election Commissioner of India, it has been viewed over 69,000 times with people hailing the monkey's move of closing the tap once its thirst was satiated.
