  Once upon a time there was a Brahmin. He was very knowledgeable.
His first wife died. He married again. One day he saw a human skull lying on the road. Brahmin thought that the person had to face adversity in his life and now the skull is coming beneath other’s foot. What the Khupdi (skull or luck) is doing).
  He took the skull and there was carving on the skull,” This skull would go to the place where people do urinating and toileting.” The Brahmin felt pity and brought the skull with him. He hid skull under clothes his box.
 One day, his second wife saw the skull in the box. She was sure that the skull is first wife of Brahmin. She thought that Brahmin is still in love with his first wife. She was also afraid that the skull of dead woman might harm her and her child. She took the skull and threw skull where people used to do toileting.
 When in evening Brahmin did not find the skull he asked his wife about skull. His wife answered that since, the skull would harm her and her child she threw skull where people do toileting.
 The Brahmin touched his forehead and said “What this skull is doing! You can’t change the luck.”
