There was a zoologist who wrote a book called: ‘The Naked Ape’. As a zoologist he was a specialist in studying apes, and therefore he listed all the qualities and behaviours of the apes. He then listed the qualities of modern man, and he said;

Well, that is the stage of humans in the age of kali.
The human form of life is meant for rising above the animal!
