Naag Panchmi is on 23rd July, I think there is no place in Delhi where people offer milk to Cobras. I will try to find any place in Delhi or nearby place. :cnf

I have inquired my father about this. My father told me that sapera (snake charmer) at some places offers milk to snakes. I will try to find a such type of person.

if a snake doesn not get ANYTING to eat for a long time, i will try and eat or drink anything, just like us! :D

Some snakes survive drinking milk, and if they cant digest it, it will die. in ancient days, if you left a saucer of milk in a large deserted temple for the gods, who was to say who came and drank it? Naturally, the poor worshipper who came to see what happened, found it gone.
