Every snake we spot in the campus, we learn from it. More we spot, more we learn :). Every new child brings own fear of snake and every spotting of snake allows each one of us to meet our fear in many different ways.
Last time we spotted a snake, one child commented ‘ this is python’, we wondered how long is python, what is the size….even though some agreed that it was not python, fear was inside. We clicked photos from safe distance, observed the path of movement, color, size, patterns….
- Next we tried identifying based on our observation
- We also studied similar looking snakes
- And finally we added in our documentation.
We are still not fearless but we are cautious. We learn to be more alert, we learn to co-exist. More we meet our fear, more we understand our fear and ourselves.
