Had met 'Karnataka's spiderman' aka Monkey Man at Chitradurga Fort this Jan. He is a self taught rock climber who climbs without any support or props. He dreams of scaling the Angel Falls in Venezuela someday. As they say "Follow your dreams, they know the way". pic.twitter.com/XKMaxEjVYC— Salma Fahim (@SalmaFahimIAS) May 10, 2020
