337I: Suki Steps on Snake

I am looking for a children’s book set in India.  A girl steps on a snake, she has a sister and a father, her name might be Suki.  I read it in the late 1960s.

  1. A few more bits I vaguely recall: her father wore a turban. She and her sister had names that rhyme. (One name might have been Suki,
    or I may be conflating it with Kipling.) Their mother had died, I think. The girl stepped on a snake in the grass and it “felt like a rope” under her foot, then bit her.
    Thank you all in advance for any ideas!
