                         Translated by: Bhishma Kukreti
                There was a pregnant woman.  There were ripe fig fruits on a fig tree.  As happened in pregnancy, she got desire to eat ripe fig fruits. She climbed on that high fig tree. She plucked tens of fig fruits. She ate a few on the tree and collected a few fruits in her Dhoti Pallu.   
                       Suddenly, she slipped from the tree. Her belly busted. She died there and before her death, a she sheep and a he sheep kid came out of her uterus. Both the sheep kids went to their father. They informed her mother’s death. Their father brought them back home.
               After some time, their father married another woman. Their step mother was not conducive to them. The step mother was always jealous to the he Sheep kid. Step mother told her husband that she had great desire for male Sheep kid Mutton. The man (father of sheep kids) told her new wife that he could not kill his own son. His new wife became furious and she threatened her that she would go her mother place. Ultimately, the man killed his son the male sheep kid. Before, dying the male sheep kid told her sister that she should keep his bones under the water spring or water source and collect them back when she would marry. Female sheep kid obeyed her brother wish. Female sheep kid collected bone of male sheep kid and buried under water source.
                 When the female sheep was being married and her marriage procession was returning from her house, she went to water source and dig the bones from there. She was surprised there was a huge pile of ornaments. She put on those ornaments and went to her mother in law house with her husband.
