text: The Nagas swim with an odd dog-paddle stroke, both hands moving together. The rest of the coolies formed a line lower down the stream and caught any fish that floated down. There was much laughter and splashing, pushing and shoving and soon a heap of silver fish with orange fins had been collected for tonight's supper.
