We are the World Blogfest is here with its 12th edition, third post of 2018 and my seventh post on #WATWB to spread peace, kindness, and humanity on social media, a few of us have worked together to create the We are the World Blogfest. In a world where news and social media are awash with negativity, we aim to turn the focus onto small but significant stories that renew our faith in humanity.
The co-hosts for the March 2018 #WATWB are Belinda Witzenhausen, Sylvia McGrath, Sylvia Stein Shilpa Garg, and EricLahti.
She Filled Her Days With Love For Snakes
Snakes are spiritually aligned with humans. Snakes are the representation of Kundalini Sakthi. I was scared of snakes before my ISHA Yoga Programme. But after getting connected with my Guru Sadhguru, I naturally liked them as well.
I was so impressed by the brave deed of Vidya Raju, a 58-year-old lady who calls herself as a Snake Rescuer or Snake Savior. The last #WATWB highlighted an inspiring guy Mr. Karthik Kumar. In this post, I feel happy to feature another loving lady Ms. Vidya Raju.
Born in Bihar and settled in Kerala. Vidya says she had no records for the number of snakes she rescued so far. Roughly it would be around 800 snakes, she adds. She is also an avid bird watcher and goes to different districts to spot birds. She is also busy giving presentations about snake awareness and identification at various educational institutions. It is not only snakes that Vidya rescues; she gets calls asking for help with birds like owls and kites too.
She hands over all snakes that she caught to the forest authorities. “Through years of practice, today she can judge a snake is aggressive or not by just looking at the body movement. Vidya got the first chance to try out her skills in Goa where she caught her first snake — a Viper. From then, she enjoys what she does. Vidya has also been bitten while handling the snakes. She says, “A snake bites because it is trying to defend itself”.
“A snake bites because it is trying to defend itself”.
– Vidya Raju
I wish her a good health and satisfaction to continue her work as a snake savior.

Snakes frighten me so I think it is extremely brave of Vidya Raju to dedicating to helping those snakes in trouble. Snakes are essential to maintain our eco system and mistakenly we humans kill them ……Thank God for people like Vidya Raju who are helping maintain our biodiversity.
Glad you liked this post.
I am not afraid of snakes so much as I am abundantly cautious around tfem. Snakes have an undeserved bad reputation.
Yes, You are right.
I love animals but I am a little nervous about snakes. I have friends who keep them but have yet to spend a great deal of time with them…perhaps one day I will. Thanks so much for sharing this and for being a part of #WATWB! WIshing you a wonderful weekend.
I have touched snakes – they are not at all slimy, as too many people believe. They have a great role in our ecosystem. Having said that, although I have never been involved in animal rescue, I have several friends who are (but more into cats or dogs than snakes)- I admire them all greatly.
Glad you could relate to my post !!!
