These stunts are a result of misplaced heroism: Kedar Bhide 12.11.2016 DNA: Recent Columns
Performing stunts like kissing venomous snakes, particularly cobras is considered extremely courageous by the snake handling community. Despite these stunts that can lead to death, many try to showcase this as a sign of their power. In the seventies and eighties, when people like Romulus Whitaker, Neelimkumar Khaire and others started working on the conservation of snakes there was a need to glamorise this field to help people overcome their deep rooted fear and superstitions. Stunts like, ‘72 hours with venomous snakes’ or other live snake shows were shows meant to uproot that phobia. Social Media was non-existent during those days, so we didn’t see the dark side of these activities most of which were done by people with a genuine interest in snakes. The recent cases of Sarp Mitra (snake rescuers) or ‘snake friends’ from Panvel and Badlapur who’ve have been bitten on their upper lip while doing stunts or while on a ‘rescue’ as claimed by them are results of misplaced heroism and wrong guidance. I admit ...
