The snake and the mirror’ is a wonderful story written by the famous Malayalam writer Vaikom Mohammed Basheer. It is a story about the lonely life of a doctor.He had just started medical practice and his earnings were meager. So he could not live in a comfortably furnished house. The house was not electrified and it was full of rats. But his dream and ambitions were in contrast to this. He was a great admirer of beauty and he believed in making himself handsome. He married a woman who was a thin and slender. He thought of marrying a woman who should have a plenty of money and should have a good medical practice. She should be a fat so that she should not be able to catch him whenever he makes a mistake in his life. He speaks about the contradiction between his dream about his wife and how she was in reality. His aesthetic sense is really appreciable. He considers himself to be handsome and to look more handsome and he takes earthshaking decisions such as keeping good smile on his face, shaving daily keeping a thin moustache etc. While he was sitting on the chair after dinner, he heard a sound from roof. He felt that it was a normal sound. After some time he was shocked to see that a cobra slithered on his shoulder and coiled around his arm. He arm grew weak and lifeless. He met death face to face. It went to the mirror and crept in to the table. He ran out and went to his friend’s house. He narrated the terrible incident to his friend. He felt that he was a poor, foolish stupid doctor. He smiled feebly at himself. When he reached at his house from friend, most of his valuable belongings were stolen leaving back his only dirty vest.
