Back cover: Snake dance
Snake charmers were a common sight at one time in Colombo but now
they are rarely seen.
They are seen in the environs of the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens
entertaining visitors. Foreigners who come to the Gardens are fascinated
when they see cobras dance to the tune of the snake charmer.
He blows a tune on a flute-like instrument known in India as a Pungi.
Our photographer Sudam Gunasinghe captured this photograph while a
snake charmer blows the flute to entertain a cobra.
