(Poet's note: Vonghu, in dialect of Sabarkantha, is a natural canal through which rain water makes its way to a lake or a river.When dry, it is a place, where the villagers go to relieve themselves.At times, hidden parts of the vonghu are also sometimes used as a space for intimate relations)

Bend after bend after bend
So many bends,
even a snake
