The water was released from the small masonry dam to the field to grow vegetables
Once the lake dries up, people flock to catch fish. I also went to catch fish and set my foot in the mud and got stuck there.
The more I tried, the more I got stuck in the mud. Suddenly, I saw something on my leg and thought it was a baby snake and screamed.
My limbs began to tremble with fear. I felt dizzy and fell in the mud.
Friends carried me and pulled out the leech which I thought was a snake.
