Dozens of “Sarpa Mitras” (Friends of snakes) have warned the Nagpur citizens to skip visiting the Dharampeth-based Traffic Park for Children as several snakes were spotted by the friends of snakes in the rainy season.
Nagpur News: With rains come the cold-blooded snakes of various species. Some are venomous and some are not. But a snake is a snake. Even if a non-venomous snake bites, the person to whom the snake has bitten, almost dies of just a scare. So both are deadly.
The dozens of “Sarpa Mitras” (Friends of snakes) have warned the Nagpur citizens to skip visiting the Dharampeth-based Traffic Park for Children or the nearby areas as several snakes were spotted by the friends of snakes. Moreover, the Traffic Park is just for the sake of the name. There are hardly any signs of children getting the knowledge of traffic. The park has turned into a hub of commercial activities and the contractor and “Chat Puri Walahas” have been earning thousands and thousands from the “special class” of visitors to the Park. The “special class” visitors are young boys and girls. And their indulging in “exotic” actions force the gentle and decent families to find another way for entertainment.
The NMC record shows children are being taught or made aware of traffic knowledge. The contractor has been let loose by the NMC authorities and partner Corporator’s relatives. The eatables inside the Park are not worth enjoying and, are costly, too. The contractor visits the Park rarely, and if one were to complaint him over quality of eatables or the cost on 9422108299 the contractor’s is always found “dead.”
Recently, when some children were cherishing a kind sports thereby running, hiding over green lawns and bushes of the Park. The parents were also cheering them with their own way. The Park was, as usual, was full of some children and the “special class” of youths. Suddenly, a youth was seen rushing towards playing children and lifted a “greatly moving thing” and ran towards outside of the Park. Everybody were in dilemma over the youth’s actions as they could properly guess what was in the hands of the youth due to night hours and not-so-sufficient lighting. However, when children and the parents came to the reality, the “thing” sent the chill down to their spines. Some even developed cold feet. What the youth took along with him was a venomous snake. Although all praised him for his daring, a scare gripped the children and parents, who might now think twice before visiting the Traffic Park. The Traffic Park has aptly turned a traffic for snakes in the rainy season. Beware!!
