Formerly, the male and female sparrow lived together. After sometimes, the female sparrow become pregnant. Thus the female sparrow said “Oh my dear! Please go and take the largest ear of paddy that I want to eat, so go and take it fast.”

The male sparrow said, “Oh dear! There are many enemies in the field so I dare not to take it.”

The female sparrow repeated that “ah maung! You do not love me you say like that. If I got no largest ear of paddy I shall die soon.”

The male sparrow said, “Oh shinma! Don’t worry, I will take it suddenly.” Then, the sparrow flew down into the paddy field. Then the male sparrow came back carrying the largest ear of paddy. The paddy is so heavy and the sparrow took rest on an iron-wood tree (PYINGADOE). At that time, a falcon came and took the sparrow as food.

The female sparrow was waiting her husband but the male sparrow didn’t return. So the female sparrow thought that her husband didn’t love her so she died soon due to broken heart.

The deer said, “Oh dear! Don’t give me stupid duty, the place near the human-beings, are very dangerous. Please ask for some leaves or sprouts in this forest, I will take them soon.” The doe said, “You are not able to the compassionate me so you say like that, ah maung! If I got no NAT MYAR tendril, I and your offspring in my womb will die soon.”

The deer said, “Never mind! You and my offspring have not to die useless, I will try the best PLEASE wait at this place. The deer went out to take NAT MYAR PLANTS or TENDRILS near a village.

A hunter saw the deer and shot out with the arrow, so the deer died soon. The doe is waited for hours but the deer can’t come back. So the doe thought the deer followed other doe so she died of sudden broken heart.

After death, the deer and doe became the male and female wild boars; lived together in the same forest. When the wife was pregnant, she demanded her husband to eat the KYA KHATT BAMBOO SHOOT.

The male wild boar said, “Don’t worry shinma please wait for me,I will take it soon. Then, the male wild boar went to the forest. On the way, the boar died of shot by a hunter. The female wild boar was wait for hours but the male wild boar didn’t come back so the wife-boar suddenly died of heart attack.
