That night at 9:00 pm , while we were sleeping on our berths . Suddenly we were waken by the columnar at the bathroom . We ran there and saw a crowd of people infront of the bathroom . All were feeling tension as there was a large snake at teh washbasin . Someone had to go to the bathroom . A small peasant came forward to take out the snake . Bot he demanded some money . We all collected Rs.500/- and gave it to him . The man took the snake and got down at the next station . Later we shocked to know that the snake was his pet and helps him to earn his livelihood  when there was no work on the fields .
