    A mother's anguish has been captured in a stunning image of a monkey clutching her collapsed offspring.

    The monkey, appearing to be wailing as it holds the limp body of her baby, was photographed in Jabalphur, India, by 31-year-old Avinash Lodhi.

    Happily, moments after it was taken, the youngster appeared to make a full recovery.

    Avinash said: 'This picture is very close to my heart because throughout my entire photography career I have never seen anything like this.

    'It was taken in Madhya Pradesh, in central India, and Avinash said: 

    'It was so quick I didn't even know what was happening when I took the picture but as soon as I confirmed the image I was silent for an hour.

  • Did You Know: Your Finger Length Says About Your Personality

     As you show the three different hands labeled A, B, and C. With each one, the ring, middle and index finger are different or sometimes the same lengths. And then, put your left hand up and compare find the one that most closely matches you.

    A) The attractive but hardheaded one.

    This one is me! People who have a ring finger longer than the index finger be likely to be attractive and appealing to some at least. A’s are the ones who can talk themselves out of just about any circumstances. Additionally, they’re destructive and outstanding problem solvers. They have a propensity to be very sympathetic and are often scientists, engineers, soldiers, and crossword riddle masters.

    B) The confident, get-it-done type.

    People with shorter ring fingers than index fingers are the self-assured, get-it-done types. They love loneliness in which to work and achieve the things they need to do, but that doesn’t necessarily indicate bashfulness. They’re very goal oriented and don’t like to be troubled. They are grateful for what they have but often hunger for more.

    C) The peacemaking

    C’s are the most peace maker or avoiding a conflict types. People with both ring and index finger length are the same height. They are faithful in relationships, loving and thoughtful partners, but be careful: C’s have a burning core that while covered up in normal day-to-day activities can be hazardous if unleashed. They might be peacemakers, but please, stay on their good quality side.

  • These 10 pics from other people’s bedrooms will open your eyes. The worst thing is: You can’t do anything about it!

    Sleeping is a daily or nightly ritual we all have to go through in order for our bodies and minds to continue functioning properly, that’s just a fact of life. When you’re growing up if you’re lucky enough to be able to sleep in your own bed then you’ve got so much freedom to squirm and twist throughout the night, but once you get older and into a relationship that quickly changes – they need room too! But did you know that the way a couple sleeps together (position-wise) can tell you a lot about each person, or their relationship?


    This sleeping style usually has both partners faced back to back with one or the other dangling an arm or a leg off the side of the bed. This could mean that the dangling partner needs to start getting more or better sleep, but it could also signify a growing distance in the relationship if it becomes a common occurrence. It could also just be a temperature thing, so don’t go rushing to conclusions without talking to your loved one if something is on your mind!

    The Crab (left side of image)

    This is the way you sleep when one person enjoys a little freedom with their side of the bed while the other enjoys a little closeness. Even still there is rarely any body contact when sleeping like this, but they do manage to push that as far as possible.

    The Roof

    The classic lover’s embrace as they fall asleep; usually the woman or more feminine partner of the relationship will nestle their head into the armpit of the other partner. This is a position that signifies a devotion between the two and is generally how those in new and budding relationships will lay down together.

    Pillow Talk

    For those that enjoy staring deeply into their lover’s eyes this is the perfect way to fall asleep, plus you’ve got the added benefit of being able to talk to one another as you fall asleep. Again, this is generally more common in newer relationships or for those couples who truly have worlds to share with each other.


    You’re probably not wondering how this sleeping position earned it’s name, because we’ve all seen it in television and the movies for years. Usually you’ll see the beautiful woman resting across the man’s muscular chest with his arm around her, asleep with nothing but rock-hard musculature as a pillow. This isn’t comfortable in the slightest, ask anyone that’s done it. Within an hour of falling asleep you’ll wake up with a dead arm and the desire not to move your partner. Even still, it’s fairly common.

    Did you know that the length and the shape of your little finger can read volumes about your personality? It may sound funny but this ancient personality reading technique comes from South Korea and is believed to be very precise when it comes to reading your personality traits. All you have to do is look at your little finger and compare its position to the ring finger and check its shape. It’s really simple and quite interesting. Here are the explanations so you can check and see for yourself.

    • Short

    A short little finger is a finger that doesn’t reach the first knuckle if the ring finger. If you have a short little finger you’re probably reserved and shy around strangers but friendly and big-hearted with familiar faces. These people also have big dreams but rarely do something to make them a reality. However, once they set their mind on something they can achieve greatness.

    • Normal

    By normal we mean a little finger which reaches the joint of the ring finger and people who have such little finger are mature and stable. It is very difficult to disrupt them and as a result, they are often seen as distant and cold. However, it only takes patience to reveal their warmth and kindness, which are rarely shown to people they are not familiar with.
