Snake Charmer

India Today - - SIMPLY HYDERABAD -

Twenty- one- year- old stu­dent Chetan De­sai has had as many mo­ments of adren­a­line rushes. When not study­ing ad­ver­tis­ing, he res­cues snakes around his neigh­bour­hood.

He has res­cued over a hun­dred snakes so far. The lo­cal­ity where he stays in Kom­pally has snakes sneak­ing into peo­ple’s homes quite of­ten. “It would en­rage me when peo­ple would kill a snake. Typ­i­cally, boys would tie it be­hind their bi­cy­cle and drag it around like a tro­phy,” says De­sai. He took it upon him­self to res­cue the snakes and re­turn them to the wild.
