\nAn evening in Goa \u2013 I went out to buy some dahi and stopped at the beach expecting to take a normal short uneventful walk.\n*\nThere were fishermen and their fish.\nAnd the poisonous snakes they discarded from their catch and the crows that came after them all!\nAnd then there was the lone Sadhubaba.\nAnd a herder taking his buffaloes home after a hard day of grazing and lazing! \n\nUneventful it was not!\n\n\u00a0\n\nThe lone babaji\u2026\nand his dog!\u00a0\n\u00a0\nHomeward bound water buffaloes who give the tastiest milk ever!\u00a0\nAnd the footballers that no Goan beach is complete without. Everyone\u2019s welcome \u2013 everyone plays.\n\nAnd finally \u2013 the most astonishing part of the walk was the sighting of these little fellows\u00a0\u2013 one of many discarded by the fishermen!\nThe trail shows he made a few turns and ultimately figured out the correct direction!\n\n\nIt turns out the the little guy I was following is one of the most poisonous snakes. \n\u201cGenerally, the species is found in Fiji, southern Japan and Singapore. \nTheir venom is ten times stronger than that of a cobra, making them extremely dangerous. This snake does not bite humans unless it feels threatened.\u201d \u00a0\nDon\u2019t know if he made it back to the sea or not. Don\u2019t know how the fishermen handle it and fish it out of the fish. Don\u2019t know if there have been bites etc \u2026\nSaw the whole event remotely again 3 days later.\nAnd am hoping to see them once again soon \u2013 will ask. And in case they are sweet enough to stop their hard work and tight schedule to listen to me and answer my questions just to satisfy my curiosity \u2013 I\u2019ll have some more to share!\n\u00a0\njaina mishra\nSept 2018\nThe post An Eventful Walk \u2013 Goa appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
