Vava Suresh with the cobras

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Wednesday night turned out to be an unforgettable one for the inmates of the National Institute for Inter-disciplinary Science and Technology (NIIST) at Pappanamcode in the city.

 It was around 9 pm that a huge cobra was first noticed at the entrance gate to the staff quarters. Soon enough, two other golden-hued snakes followed the first one into a hole on the ground along the boundary wall. The presence of humans didn’t seem to deter any of them.

The staff at NIIST decided to do what any other person in the city would have done - they called up Vava Suresh. He took no time and reached the campus around 10.30 pm.

He took one sniff near the cavity in the wall and confirmed that the snakes are still in there. He just put in his hand into the hole and dragged out the snakes one by one. There were two female snakes and one male.

Vava Suresh informed the gathering that this was the breeding season of cobras, put them into a sack and took them away.

 Routine work for Suresh, but for the children on the campus, the whole experience turned out to be pretty unique.
