Cobra in Snake Charmer's Village

Dr. Yogi has taken care of a number of patients from the snake charmers' village. He offered to take me there to see the place. He describes the snake charmers as the Gypsies of India. They live in very poor conditons and do things like pan-handling. They are all very poor. He has taken care of them free of charge as he feels they really need the help. We even saw a child while visiting who had a hemaniomoa (perianal) and Dr. Yogi told them to bring in the child and he would remove it. Needless to

say, I was also shown the snakes, which they believe are sacred.
