Baby vs. Cobra

Ah, India ... the land that brought us Bollywood also brought us this strange and disturbing video clip. Watch as a baby wrestles with a cobra (a cobra!) that either has been defanged or whose mouthseem to have been sewn shut - while adults chatter on in the background (anyone here know what they're saying?)

Polls Boutique is running a poll to see whether you think "poor baby" or "poor snake" (maybe a little of both!) - Thanks Eran!

If those snakes are everywhere, then my trip to India will be canceled in any future plans lol.
However, the fact that they are doing this and thinking its funny is horrible abuse to a child as far as I'm concerned! Not to mention the snake (even though I hate snakes) why would anyone sew its mouth or de fang it for their pleasure?
Its exploitation of a child for the amusement of the so called adults who are present in this video! Shame on them all!
Call it a ritual, it still barbaric!

@ mother theresa:

Well, that wasn't exactly what I meant. I was going for more of the tolerance aspect and my doubts that Mother Theresa would have called her adoptive culture "crapola".

But your explanation works, too.

Yeah, it is ironic. Roman Catholicism is rather heathenistic eh?
I concur. Too many rituals, too many relics, too many bleeding statues
and Jesus images on bread. Gave up catholicism for lent . Decided to become a Christian instead. OH, but kept the catchy name ;-)
