The Doctor and the Snake
• Then he lit up a kerosene lamp and sat on a chair in front of
a large mirror and took out a medical book to study.
• He could not concentrate as the weather was hot.
• While looking at the mirror, he made two plans:
To look more handsome, he will shave daily & he
would keep a smile on his face.

The Doctor and the Snake
• Before he could do anything, the venomous creature had
coiled itself around his left arm.
• The doctor tried his best to hold his breath
and become like stone as he knew even a
slight movement may kill him.
Made for you by: Mrinal Ghosh
The Doctor in critical situation
• The doctor was praying for the almighty’s blessings to get
rid of the situation.
• It appeared to him that his left arm was getting crushed
under the pressure of the venomous snake.
• His mental and physical strength was drained off.
• He labeled himself as a stupid fellow and he smiled himself.
