Mande barung me all the way to the jungle

My family took in an exchange student from India last year. His name was Madhu, and he was one of the elusive mande barung — the black and white Big Foot of India. He was a nice guy. Didn’t say much about his home, but he was okay to have around the house. He actually helped to build the tree-house in the backyard.
He sent me this article with video links yesterday. He and his family were playing games with a fellow named Dipu Marak because the commission of tourism there paid him to “be seen.” He’s hoping it doesn’t affect his privacy, but then again he’s a real ham.
