Numerous snake videos have created quite a buzz on social media in the past, and it seems the frenzy isn’t going to die any time soon. Recently, a bizarre incident from 2010 involving snakes went viral again on networking sites, and people were perturbed to see umpteen YouTube handles sharing the old clip. A bride and groom — Siddharth Sonavane, 25, and his fiancee Shrusti Ausarmal, 23, around seven years back — exchanged snake garlands during their wedding ceremony on November 12, 2010, in a remote village of Beed district in Maharashtra.
Skipping the customary flower garlands, the couple chose deadly snake garlands and wrapped it around each other’s necks without flinching for a moment. Reportedly, the two are local wildlife department employees, who reside in a remote district of the state. Buzz is also that the snakes were let loose briefly after the ceremony got over.
