From my childhood I have been seeing snakes associated with the Gods such as Lord Shiva , Lord Vishnu and Lord Krishna in one form or the other. The snake adorns the neck of Lord Shiva. Lord Vishnu is found resting on the bed or resting place provided by a number of snakes and his consort Goddess Lakshmi at his side Lord. Lord Krishna standing on the hood of the “Kalia “ in the midst of the river.
I remember in my house at Palwal in Haryana sometimes when I used to open my almirah for the clothes saw a snake moving into the hole in the corner. The open space in the back of our house had trees of Ber, Keekar and undergrowth of all sorts. That was the idle habitat for the snakes.
