    Though not yet the middle of the week, and at a time when you are probably at home or in the office taking as many precautions as possible to guard against coronavirus and the other daily dangers which are part of life, somewhere in India a monkey has decided to throw caution to the winds and taken its life into its own hands... literally.

    Known for sharing animal videos on social media, Parveen Kaswan, an officer with Indian Forest Services, has tweeted a clip of this daredevil monkey and its idiosyncratic way of getting from one end of a crowded street to the other.

    Going from being perched on the top of a terrace, the clip shows the monkey then hopping onto an electrical wire and back-gliding its way towards the other side like its nobody’s business. Take a look:-

    ​Onlookers can be seen holding their breath as the monkey performs its mind-boggling stunt.
