Shri Ganesh has treated thousands of victims in his life. He keeps herbs inside mouth and simply suck the venom out with the help of four-five assistants. He is having over 250 sincere followers. He is having in depth knowledge about snakes and herbs used in treatment of snake bite. He faced odd situations many times and as result there are tens of spots of snake bite on his body. He informed me that application of Aldrin in early days and application of Phorate and Hinosan in present days is becoming curse for snake population in rice fields. These agrochemicals have killed thousands of snakes in few years. For more info please read this research report Oudhia, P. (2008).
