When the monsoon season is over, all the ponds and small lakes in the villages are used for a special type of ”hand fishing”. In this special act the most of the specialized fishermen are the village children who simply go into the water and use just their hands to catch all these fish. One day in a village not very far from Dhaka city, the same kind of fishing was in progress and people were watching these very unique kinds of acts. Suddenly a little boy grabbed everyone’s attention. In the hand of that little boy was a very angry looking crab and no matter how much that crab was biting and hurting the boy, he was not letting it go! Rather he continued to play with it, showing the world that he is not scared of such tiny crustaceans!
