About 15 miles from Delhi at the village of Molarbund is a snake charmers’ colony, shown March 25, 1949. The men travel all over India to give performances of their art but they always return to this, their home village. They make their musical instrument, called a “been”, out of a locally grown type of gourd. Besides the familiar cobra they also exhibit pythons, Russell’s vipers, kraits and slow worms. After giving snake charming exhibitions, for additional income they also sell an antidote for snakebite. (AP Photo)
