Says Sachin, "It was horrifying, but I think I am ok with them now. I realized like human beings, even their first impulse is to defend themselves. And unless provoked, they don't attack or harm". This is not it, Sachin now claims that he has overcome his fear for snakes as well. Sachin surely deserves a pat on his back for being brave all thro' the shot, with the snake hovering up and down his body!!
