    I could not find the book in the library. Will check another library next week.

    I am keen to read the book now with conflicting reviews on the internet.

    Four legs good; but Two legs better: [hand touching leg on opposite side]

    Okapi was our muse earlier! We discussed much on it. Yes, one yoga oh-coffee spring board of an animal.

    @Novalis
    Whenever I get engrossed with Darwin, I take a look in a mirror and ask myself 'Me a monkey?' and feel as disgusted as Dorian Gray. The popular question that everyone asks is that 'if I was a monkey once, why there are still monkeys there and how long will they take to become me?'
    That 'Don't walk away when I am talking to you' shows that humans could have come from any living being, not necessarily a monkey!

    1325 Ravana
    Sometime back, I saw a TV ad with Ravana suffering from common cold and sneezing from all the ten heads. I once heard in a discourse, that Ravana never had ten heads and twenty hands in a physical sense. It was merely to illustrate his corporeal and mental faculties. He had brain power and physical strength of ten men. He asked the audience that when he had ten heads and twenty hands, why he was not having twenty legs. Ravana was a great devotee of Lord Shiva and an excellent singer too.

    1326 Psmith
    A classic example is Ronald Eustace Psmith. He explains the extra P in his name as 'The P in his surname is silent ("as in pshrimp" in his own words) and was added by himself, in order to distinguish him from other Smiths'
    Ordinary words and names bore Wodehouse!

    Lord Shiva's Daughters
    We all know that lord Shiva has three sons, namely, Ganesha, Karthikeya and Ayyappa.
    But it was news to me that Shiva had three daughters too.
    Knowledge is indeed like the sinking star beyond the utmost bounds of human thought!

    Your comparison of the incompatible ascension from monkeys with the disgust of Dorian Gray amused me.

    Dorian was conceited even amongst humans, I wonder, how he would have repulsed had he been apprised of his monkey ancestry.

    I also feel the monkey council, by now, considering the nastiness of humans would have repudiated our common ancestry. (You humans claim to have descended from us? No way.) I am afraid no animal species would willingly embrace us under their brood as common ancestry for the mind-boggling idiocy exhibited by humans.
