Siddhartha Siddhartha Siddhartha
Kamala, a former courtesan who taught Siddhartha about the birds and the bees, was waiting for a ferry somewhere in India with her son when she was bitten by a cobra. In the book it's a small black snake, but here, it's a big cobra.

The scene is taken from the book by Hermann Hesse, which shows that even a Nobel-Prize-winning author knows that the old snakebite trick is a convenient way to get rid of an unwanted character, because everybody knows that all snakes really want to do is kill us. This trick is a little more believable when it happens in India, because a lot of people there really do die of snake bite, but still, it's hardly original.
