    Can I have the relation between Man And Gorilla in thsi lesson.

    • Satya Prakash says:

      The story depicts a symbiotic relation between the author and a gorilla. Both seem to give one another affection, emotional comfort, and sympathy. The author, a man obviously, is an animal lover, and surprisingly, the gorilla whom he brought under his care reciprocates human love by adopting to human care and zoo life with comparatve ease. Had the gorilla been rebellious and resentful about his captivity, he would have become violent, distuptive, and difficult to rear. On the contrary, he was civil, and accomodative. He reciprocated love, and behaved most admirably with his keeper. Very rarely, we get TO see such harmoniois relation between a gorilla caught from the wild and a humn being.

    is it L’pongo or N’Pongo?

  17. Akash says:

    Dude about the documentary, in my book it says that when his flight to CAMARGUE (which is south of Arles, France) was due in four days, N’Pongo got sick(diarrhoea+blood and no eating). Gerald was going to convince the BBC man to make a documentary on “The life in Camargue” and not on N’Pongo.
