Synopsis
The villagers believe monkeys to be sacred creatures, letting the monkeys eat their fill even as the people starve. The maharaja imports a caged gorilla to show that apes and monkeys are only animals. Believing that the gorilla is a god, and that its caging has led to a drought, villagers free the ape at the cost of two lives. Ghanga and the maharaja recapture the gorilla, after which the rains come, proving that the gorilla is not supernatural.
