56-year-old Pitambaram Rajan, a resident of Batticaloa, Sri Lanka, died on October 17 due to illness. His body was kept outside the house so that friends and close relatives could pay tribute to him. When people were coming to pay homage to him, at the same time this langur came and sat near the dead body. Pithambaram’s relatives were quite surprised to see this. Someone told him that he used to feed this langur daily and the two had developed a very close friendship.
The langur sat beside his dead body and he flatly refused to move. Then he checked whether Pitambaram was breathing or not. Friends and relatives became very emotional after seeing this love. The number of langurs is very high in the forests of South West, Sri Lanka. These langurs survive for a long time by eating leaves in the forests.

The langur whose video is going viral is found in the Himalayas, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan and some parts of India. There are also purple langurs in Sri Lanka, but now this species is in danger. The number of langurs is very high near Colombo. A lot of hard work is being done to save this animal.
