Ques 1: You have read what these animals say. Why do you think that some of them are sad?
Ans: Some of the animals are sad because they are separated from their habitats (forests). They are placed in circuses to entertain people, where they are treated badly by their masters. They are beaten up if they do not follow their mastersâ€™ orders. Thus, these animals are feeling sad as they have lost their freedom and are forced to live in captivity.

Ques 2: How do you think they are different â€“ the monkeys that dance to entertain people and the monkeys that are free?
Ans: The monkeys that are free are happier in comparison to those that dance to entertain people. Everyone loves freedom, even the animals. We should not capture the animals and use them for our entertainment against their wish. It makes them unhappy because they want to be free and roam around without being instructed by a human.
