“It took me seven years to become a snake charmer. I went from one place to another- sometimes running from dangers, sometimes from myself, sometimes from the world. The world changed a lot in these seven years, but what I have learned is timeless – that snake charmers are not born, they are made.”
Thus starts a powerful and poignant story around the life of Bharat, an entrepreneur who starts a development project in rural India. His commencement of the project irritates the political mafia and a bunch of hired assassins are on the lookout for Bharat. Chased by the assassins, Bharat runs for his life and in the course of fleeing arrives at the forest hut of an old snake charmer. As fate had it, their union was on the cards. He takes refuge in the snake charmer’s hut and learns about things that will change his life forever.
Nagbaba, the snake charmer, teaches him age-old wisdom and kindles Bharat’s inner strength. He inculcates in him the power to fight back. The place of the snake charmer becomes the center of renaissance for Bharat and together they exchange their perspectives of the world, overcome their fears, and chart a future. But one crucial choice by the snake charmer leaves Bharat in a dilemma. Read more
