very true words from ur side.in fact we call this animal
as ANIL but we add MAMA bcos he always giving us fruit from (mostly mango) trees where we cant reach anymore.
the same hand uncle-MAMA(mother brothers)bring sweets and fruits for us whenever they visit to thire sister home.so ANIL also giving fruits from trees.
thats why we call him ANIL + MAMA even it is a animal.we just respect this animal as they giving fruits for us.not only if ANIL give fruits it always very tasty than what we harvest and eat.i know well that practically.
we have a little song about ANIL MAMA that is bellow-
"ANIL MAMA...ANIL MAMA...
ENAKORU PALAM POADU...
ANIL MAMA...ANIL MAMA...
ENAKORU TAEEN PALAM POADU.."
the meaning of this little song -
"ANIL UNCLE...ANIL UNCLE...
DROP ME A FRUIT...
ANIL UNCLE...ANIL UNCLE...
DROP ME A HONEY FRUIT..."
but most of ANILs ar more clever and they eat everything finaly only drop just skin of fruits or nuts of fruits.very rarely and
luckyly we get fruits as full from ANIL----hahaaha
