ETA, UTTAR PRADESH, INDIA, July 25, 2001: Snakes are worshiped and offered milk on one day in the month of Shravan known as Nagpanchami. In this whole district of Eta, people carefully coaxed snakes from their hiding places and offered them milk. More cautious souls drew figures of snakes for worship. On this day a large number of saperas, who rear snakes professionally, were out in the streets with their collection of snakes. Devotees could safely offer their worship, and the saperas make a substantial amount of money on this day. (from Hindi)
