Shimla monkeys are a smart bunch of macaques. Their skill include secretly climbing on your head, stealing your glasses and then teasing you from the branch of a tree. The most common way to get your glasses back is to offer them something to eat. My dad got a pair stolen recently  and his friend used a stone to aim at the monkey. He ran away with the glasses. He never got them back. You simply can’t outsmart them.
