Video CD



This 23 minutes video CD discussses about the superstitions the villagers have regarding snakes and snakebites. With the help of JSS, they are now learning not to chant the Goddess of snakes or go to faith-healers, instead now they go to local hospitals and treat the snakebite victims with AVS.
