Depending upon situation, many times, the narrator changes animals from birds to foxes to monkeys etc. 


                    The Story of two Pregnant She Sheep: Garhwali Folktale for Managers

                 Long back in our village, there were two she sheep in sheep yard. One was Mayali Dhibari and second was Gargari Dhibari. They were Devrani and Jithani Wives of two brothers). They were sisters from father side and mother side too. However, both had different characters.
               Once, they became pregnant together. Mayali Dhibari used to walk on plain path and Gargari Dhibari never cared for plain paths. Mayali Dhibari used to think about her kid becoming simple and sober sheep. While Gargari used to imagine that her kid would be a greater fighter. Mayali prayed from God to have sage type of kid and Gargari asked an agile kid. Mayali requested god to gift her a honest kid and Gargari went for arrogant kid.
            Mayali took care in walking, sitting, standing, talking, choosing plant leaves for eating and sleeping but Gargari never took care in any her acts in pregnancy.
 When the time came for child delivery there was smooth delivery for Mayali Dhibari.
               However, there was hardship for Gargari she sheep. Gargari sheep had to experience delivery pain for two days and nights. At the end her masters had to pull the kid from her uterus. Gargari sheep died at the time of child delivery.
 The kid of Mayali was sober, simple and likable by others. However, the kid of Gargari was angry, notorious and seldom had others liked him.  The kid of Gargari was always ready to fight everybody.
 One day, in fierce fighting an elder he sheep killed the kid of Gargari sheep.
