    Many unwanted guests in Delhi during monsoon

    It is reported that the monsoon is hesitatingly arriving in Delhi, There was a little bit of rain yesterday. It gave some respite from the hot and humid weather. But with the beginning of the monsoon, unwanted guests have also started arriving, even in the most modern localities. Three incidents of unwelcome guests happened yesterday itself.

    A very big venomous cobra was found at the Govt. Senior Secondary School in Laxmi Bai Nagar. Laxmi Bai Nagar is in South-Central Delhi and is considered a posh locality in Delhi. The second cobra was found in the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus Girls' Wing (Lohit Hostel). The third guest was captured from the MCD Health Centre in Badli village. It hid in the almirah containing medicines.

    All the three cobras have been captured by NGO Wildlife SOS. There have been no casualties. Besides these three cases, there are some more reports of sightings of cobra in Delhi and its outskirts.

    So, Delhiites! Be careful a little bit, especially when you visit Nehru Park, Lodhi Garden, Talkatora Stadium, Garden of Five Senses, etc. in the evening.

    Well inside Delhi too there are some green cover areas and open spaces like little forest on the Patel Nagar side and there is scope for snakes and other animals to live and have their life. But over the years I have seen that even the green places like Munirka has turned into concrete jungle and I used to see Peacocks making rounds in our colony during 1980 - 85. Surely in this 32 years much might have developed and destroyed and so the snakes which are bound to live in bushes and forests are forced to occupy their positions in colonies , campuses and offices. That means we have encroached the animal space.

    The Cobras will start coming out from the underground as the temperatures will come down. This happens in all the places. The people should be careful and vigilant. As the rains start, many types of diseases will also start spreading and people start feeling sick. Many diseases will get spread and may be contagious also. The public should be careful about this problem also. As there is a seasonal change many feel the differences in their health. Cold and cough may attack. Use all protective clothing and don't eat outside found and don't get wet in the rain.
    always confident
