Recently I heard about an interesting incident which happened before
There is a natural port at Colachel, in Kanyakumari District of Tamilnadu , India. It is one of the places which suffered a lot during tsunami recently. When Dutch soldiers tried to capture this port, the people around here, cut palm trees and placed on the carts. They parked all these carts with a palm tree laid on it on the shores. On seeing this from a distance, the Dutch soldiers thought that tanks have been parked to shoot against them. So immediately they ran out of that place. It is really amazing to know about the brave act of the people of Colachel.
