              Bitanu was small in size. Itanu was elder brother of Bitanu.  They had a she buffalo. Itanu was crook. When their parent died, Itanu said to his brother to divide the buffalo. Itanu told that the mouth side of buffalo is for Bitanu and tail side buffalo is for him. Bitanu accepted the division.
           Bitanu used to provide fodder to buffalo and Itanu used to take benefits of dung. Buffalo delivered the child.  Due to division promise, Itanu got the milk.
            One day, Bitanu took the buffalo to outside village for grazing. Buffalo had dung and Bitanu was covered by dung. Buffalo went to a crop field and ate the whole crop. The field owner killed buffalo. Barely seeds were with dung. Crow came to eat barely grains and due to disturbing dung by crow, Bitanu could come out from dung.
             Bitanu tried to search for his buffalo but buffalo was dead. Bitanu dried the skin of buffalo and went towards a forest out of village boundary. In night, Bitanu sat under a big tree. After some time, thieves came there and sat under that tree. They started to distribute the theft cash, gold, silver, gems and jewelries. Afraid of them, Bitanu shook the dried, scanty buffalo skin and that skin created a sound. Thieves thought that police had come there. They ran away leaving there cash, silver, gold, gems and jewelries. Bitanu took all the precious items and came to his room in night. He buried the wealth under the soil. Bitanu married a wise girl. Due to wise wife of Bitanu, Itanu and his wife could not make fool of Bitanu. Bitanu started living happily.
