The Strange Case of a Snake and a Beauty cream Tube

Friends,  you must be wondering what a snake is doing  with a beauty  cream tube. I was equally astounded after coming to terms with the  facts. Actually,  one morning,  during  my daily ritual of going through  fresh and crisp newspaper with a tea cup in my hand, suddenly my attention was caught by a strange  piece of a video news clip running on a Bangla news channel.  My curiosity knew no bounds to see a snake,  at least five feet long, lying immobile near a tea stall at a place near Siliguri. Thanks to the handy mobile camera, some amateur reporter was  taking the footage. When it focused  more on the snake, the matter came to light that it was suffering  from perforated gut which was caused by the non other than an empty beauty cream tube, poking through the punctured wound. The snake had apparently swallowed the tube,  mistaking  it for it’s prey.
More it slipped into it’s gut,more the sharp, pointed  edges of the end of the tube ,cut open its gut. The snake may have died a slow, painful death but credit goes to an animal lover who took up the hopeless case of rescuing the unfortunate creature. He promptly held it up and carried the injured to a local veterinarian. The rest of the event was no less amazing!
The kind docter wasted no time to operate on it’s patient. The tube stuck in the snake ‘s gut was carefully taken out, the scarred gut and the outer skin sutured and bandaged. My heart warmed to see the snake wriggling  albeit gingerly when it came to it’s full sense. The news clip ended with the good doctor, the savior,  assuring that he will release the invalid after its full recuperation  under his watchful observation!
You see, its the folly of human of scattering their garbage here and there, mindlessly , which drove the animal to the brink of a torturous death, and it were others of their clan, whom took it upon themselves to give it a new lease of life. We are the destroyer and some of us are the rescuers too!
Now it is absolutely upon us to ensure the other living neighbors of the earth get a sustainable and safe habitat to thrive on, its indeed essential for our survival too. Let’s treat the earth and other dwellers  with more humane approach. Keep spreading the act of kindness  and happiness all around instead of the virus,  as they are highly infectious too! Keep smiling
Adieu for now.
