"You can know the names of a bird in all languages of the world,but when you are finished ,
You will know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird.....
So let`s look at the bird and see what it`s doing --that`s what counts.
I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something."

-Nobel Laureate Richard P Feynman(1918-1988)

Russell's Viper

Hai, all,
Chelamattom, Perumbavoor, 30-9-2010, 5pm
My neighbor caught a different kind of fish with his net - a lethal one. The plastic net he used to cover his well ensnared (accidentaly) a small sized Russell's Viper (Malayalam - Anali) and the poor creature died of injury, fatigue and starvation as the casualty was noticed only after some days. I myself have two previous experiences of snakes getting entangled in similar nets on their own.
