Snakes!Snakes! and more Snakes!

Hey folks, as you have read the title, this post is about a Snake. Don’t worry it’s not as scary as it sounds. Okay, let’s come to the point. On 17/7/2011 I was watching a movie (at home, movie-Stanley ka dabba) when my friends called out to me saying “Bhavana! Bhavana! There is a dead snake in our colony”. That very moment I ran out of the house and went to see the snake. I am not joking people, that snake was literally as tall as my father. I think it was half dead, because when I reached there the snake’s tail was moving. It was a Whip snake male kind, it was not venomous but it did look scary. People say that if that snake is there, there will be another poisonous female cobra. Scary huh! I know, I know, but don’t worry. I learnt that it’s not true. There is a big history behind how they caught it. I don’t know the whole thing but I will tell you how much I know. So, here it goes. In one of the houses in our colony there is a dog. The dog was at the back of the house with a girl and soon the snake slithered over the back wall .The girl shouted and the dog barked and was about to bite it. Then the snake got scared and slithered out the house and roamed around the whole colony. The security and some other people followed the snake to another house with a dog. The dog started barking and the security guy ran to the house and literally smashed the snake. The snake then died and then I entered the puzzled scene. They didn’t know what to do with snake so they threw it in the middle of two walls. Now I am sure that, that place is stinking. I hope you liked my long story about snakes. Oh! And don’t forget to keep reading my blog. Thank you.
