The Legend of Titreyengol
The legend is about a fisherman. According to the legend, a fisherman living around the lake constantly feeds the birds living on the lake. One day, a few hunters start hunting the ducks on the lake. Seeing this situation, the fisherman wants to prevent the hunters. Hunters get angry with the fisherman and make him fall into the lake. Birds who see this form a Tornado on the lake by flapping their wings, and the hunters who see this are afraid and run away. Since then, the lake waters continue to tremble constantly. The flapping of the wings of the birds is interpreted by the local people as the cry of the birds for the fisherman.
