Meet Devesh Adivas The Snake Boy.
The story has been recounted the kid who showers and plays with dangerous snakes.
Devesh Adivasi, a 7-year-old kid from Madhya Pradesh, in India, has some extremely surprising closest companions. For as long as four years, he has been going into the wilderness close to his town and returning with a wide range of snakes, some of them toxic, that he plays, washes and eats with. Up until now, he hasn’t been nibbled once.
The kid’s family says that his interest with snakes begun when he was 3 years of age, in the wake of envisioning about the crawling reptiles one night. Next morning, he enlightened his folks concerning it, yet they didn’t consider much it until the point when they saw him running into the jungle close to their town and later turning out with two snakes.
The reptiles crawled everywhere on his body, however they didn’t bite. Since that day, Devesh has been going into the jungle consistently and conveying back new companions to play with. He keeps them for a couple of days, showers and lays down with them, kneads them with oil and afterward returns them once again into the bushes.
“We have tried everything to keep him away from the snakes,” the boy’s father, Ragunath, told Story Trender. “We have explained that snakes are not meant to be friends. It is dangerous but he doesn’t listen to us.
After seeing Devesh playing with snakes for four years, most of the villagers aren’t surprised to see him surrounded by his slithering friends. They know that snakes don’t harm him, but they are reluctant to let their kids go anywhere near him when the reptiles are around. The boy’s parents claim that he currently has around 15 snake friends that he casually brings out of the jungle, including cobras.
Dr MPN Khare, a general surgeon at a district hospital in Madhya Pradesh, told Caters News that Devesh’s friendship with the snakes is bizarre, and added that it can be dangerous for both his physical and mental health.
“Whether poisonous or not, snakes are not meant to be pets. And a child playing with a snake, feeding it and sleeping with it can be very dangerous for his mental health,” Khare said. “Even if these snakes haven’t bitten him yet, it is very much possible the snakes might bite him someday while he plays with them. It can install a fear that can affect him psychologically.”
