Snake charming is typically an inherited profession. Most would-be charmers thus begin learning the practice at a young age from their fathers. At home,snake charmers keep their animals in containers such as baskets, boxes, pots, or sacks. They must then train the creatures before bringing them out into public. Way to Agra from Delhi we stopped near a petrol pump. Then suddenly these snake charmer boys came very near to our car and opened their baskets to show the snake game.I was horrified & close the window glass. Then I took the picture.
Location: Delhi, India.
