Thanks Atul. Ya ctsetan, there should be some awareness program to farmers and local villagers.I am also farmer and I know how valuable these animals are. But after all everyone love his life as this one is highly poisonous.

saw one dead by the road... the farmers had killed it... it was a large adult snake. i felt sad. But farmers didn't have any other option... they were harvesting their crop.
