Snake charmer with mongoose

I found him at Sea View yesterday (16th October 2010) and asked him to get his bansri out and show me the snake show. He insisted on fighting his snake with this large mongoose, which I objected to. So he took out the snake and showed me the show and I handed over Rs.150 for his performance. Honestly, the snake was a bit slow and very small. It's price was Rs.200-300 and it has been caught from Thatta. No wonder our wildlife continues to dwindle at a very fast pace.
