Since last two days, we have faced 2 snakes. Its not like we have not seen snakes so farm in our farm but they were escaped outside.
This time (19-Feb-2013), below snake that looks red in color just crossed by me and my care taker followed it and killed. He said, it was Cobra (Naag).
On 20-Feb-2013, we got another snake nearby my house construction that was hidden under the asbestos sheet. When they tried to pull the sheet up, it appears. This one was of soil color and bigger than yesterday's snake. I can clearly see a mark on its forehead (This was Cobra or Naag in Hindi).
I am fearful these days.
We had noticed a snake few months before whose length was almost 5-6 feet and went into the construction materials (Stone bricks) after that we do not know where it went.
My care taker burnt the first snake immediately after killing and the same he did to the second one. Today he put 1 rupee coin in its mouth and burnt. I do not know why but looks like that is the tradition here to burn.
What is the best way to keep snakes away? Anyone who can suggest some plant or any other way to keep snakes away from living area plots, that would help.
