       Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)

            There was a village. The water source was far from the village. The villagers had to take water by vessel on their head.  The villagers used to take their cattle to water source.
                 There was a widow in the village. She had two daughters. Both were different from each others. The widow had a pair of bulls. Turn by turn the daughter used to go to water source by taking bulls to water source.
        It was dry summer. Their mother was cooking sweet rice pudding (Kheer). That day was the turn of Choli to take bulls for water source. Choli was in hurry to take Kheer. She wanted to eat Kheer earlier than anybody else.
    Choli took the bulls towards water source. However, her eagerness to eat Kheer compelled her to take a sinful decision.  
  On the half way, she urinated on the bull’s feet and came back to cattle shed without taking Bulls to water source. Her mother saw that bull feet were wet.
 Choli took Kheer before her sister.
 Due to summer and thirst, by evening, both the bulls died. Bulls cursed Choli.
In next life, Choli took birth as a bird called Choli or Papiha (sparrow hawk). The sparrow hawk does not take water from land but have to depend on rain and always she cries “sarga dida pani de , pani de or O heaven give me water , give me water).
