I came across this article in Engadget. I’m not really promoting this by writing about it in my blog but actually quite the opposite. Kind of like where we are going with technologies and applications that are made available to us.
It amazes me to realize that there is no limit to how useless we can get!
Yea, you heard it right. Last week, Anoop and I were working on few things and suddenly my neighbour calls be to tell me there’s a snake in the parking lot. We rush to see it and it was…. wait for it…. Indian Cobra! A spectacled cobra – a new born, probably a week old. It was probably 40 cms long. I used a long stick and put the guy in a translucent bucket. Anoop stood next to with a lid for the bucket. There… We did it… We caught a snake at least once in my life. Well, its not a grown snake.. but still.
Take a look at the picture below. We called Anwin and he came along with his camera and we got a few pictures. Man… he was beautiful. He was a tiny little fellow. We called “People for animal” and got Mr. Prem Koshy take the snake away to a safe place next morning. He same with a jar in hand and took that beautiful creature away. If at all I could feed him mice and frogs consistently, I might not have let him go!
But in the mean time, we had a great time with the snake. I couldn’t capture all the beautiful things he did in the camera, but I saw him show his spectacle with all its beauty… over and over again! I’m sure there are a few more hatchlings around and I’m looking for them. If I see any more, will tell you another story.
