Netizens, however, loaded the comment section with their opinions and their own experiences. A user said Vrindavan had become a hotspot for notorious monkeys who steals valuables of people, including glasses, right off their faces, while another said the monkeys in Vrindavan have learned that they will get food and mango drink Frooti in exchange for items they steal from the people.

A fourth shared his experience by saying that DM was lucky enough to get back his glasses as his glasses were stolen while he was sitting in his car, and the monkeys broke them instead of giving them back.
