Snake!

At 11:00am Pranay was banging everyone's door in our wing
Pranay : "Abey uto yaar, jaldi uto.. merey room me saamp agaya.."
I was shocked .. I got up with my eyes still half closed... opened the door to find the frightened Pranay!...
Then I went to his room, to find how long the snake was. He told the snake was on his desk. I couldn't find anything on the desk. I was about to move the chair, thats when I spotted the snake. I got goosebumps when I saw the snake. Thats when I actually got up from sleep.



Initially I thought it was some laptop wire thats why couldnt spot it. I immediately moved back, realized that it's very risky to try anything funny. We immediately called the workers in our hostel. The snake was really long. It could easily be more than a metre.



The encircled part in the pic shows the snake's head.


After almost one hour they killed the snake.






The mess workers told that the snake is not that poisonous but it bites a lot.



Poor Pranay was really scared even after that. I am sure if I were in his place,I would be still worse. From now on he'll check twice before he sits on his chair.

I got my room cleaned today, after a long time just to make sure there is no snake or any other creature hiding under my bed.

But still the mysterious thing is--> "how did this snake climb up to 2nd floor". I never knew that snakes can climb trees and walls.

One important learning:- Carbolic acid(Phenol) keeps away snakes.
