There are many myths that are in use that from ages that stress at keeping snakes away. One such myth that is widely believed by many is that while amla helps keeps snakes away from living areas of humans. Before believing a myth, one has to question whether it has any truth in it. The myth that white amla keeps snakes away is absolutely untrue. It is just a superstitious belief and snakes have nothing to do with it. There are few other beliefs that snakes drink milk and dance for the pungi instrument. They are utterly untrue as well. One should not believe in baseless myths that make no sense at all. So, if in the future anyone around you promotes such baseless myths make sure to make them aware of the fact that they are just myths and does not hold any significance at all.
