Controversy is being caused by the Amdavad Municipal Corporation (AMC) showing four Monkeys instead of Gandhi’s three symbolic
Monkeys at Makbara Bypass.
A fourth Monkey holding a mobile phone is painted on this wall during the cleanliness survey. Gandhiji’s three monkeys are symbolic of conveying a message of truth. Here, AMC has added a fourth monkey along with these three monkeys.
However, a monkey with a mobile phone is seen symbolically alongside the monkeys with their eyes, ears and mouth closed.
It is to be mentioned that Gandhiji’s three monkeys convey the message that, do not speak lies, do not listen to lies, and do not see lies, in short, Gandhiji gives a message to follow the path of truth through the symbolic picture of these three monkeys.
While here in the painting in the Makarba underpass, this fourth monkey is also placed. So people are wondering what message AMC wants to convey through this fourth monkey
