Sharing his delight over the incident, the man who posted the videos wrote, “In a world of unrest, discord, bigotry, disharmony and all things bad, it’s reassuring to see humanity occasionally consoling you that it’s not gone yet, not entirely.

The locals’ empathy towards the injured snake also reflected their reverence for serpents, which are considered a divine symbol as Lord Shiva has a snake as a garland around his neck. The user revealed how some locals made apologies to Lord Shiva for not being able to fully help his ‘child’, the injured snake.
While the cause of injury to the snake remains unknown, the compassion shown by the people towards the injured animal is truly inspiring and a reminder that even in the midst of chaos and uncertainty, humanity still exists.
