“It’s not right to kill snakes just because you are scared”, says Nirbhay Wadhwa
Expressing his love towards snakes, Nirbhay Wadhwa says, “I love reptiles, especially snakes. I have a pull towards them, an attachment I have felt since childhood. Today, it breaks my heart to see how people ill-treat these species when they appear in residential areas. I have seen oil being poured over them and people burning them only because of fear. But a snake gets equally scared seeing so many humans! It’s not right to kill snakes just because you are scared. What people fail to understand is that 90% of them are not even poisonous. You can call for help as there are many snakes rescuing organisations.”
He further adds, “We have infiltrated their habitat by cutting down forests for our own materialistic pleasures. Where are we really expecting the snakes to go? We aren’t true human beings if we cannot co-exist.”
Nirbhay is also a father to two adorable dogs, one of whom he rescued on a scary rainy night around two years ago.
