Description:Translation (by Maran Seng Pan) A long time ago, there was a poor young man. Even though he worked hard like others, it was still hard for him to survive. Whatever he did, was not successful. So, he was disappointed with himself and he didn't want to live in a poor life anymore. That's why he was feeling suicidal. While he was thinking about how to commit suicide, he mumbled, "Where can I commit suicide? Should I go to the river and jump into the water? Or where else?" And he went out to find the place. On the way, he met with an old man who was Grim Reaper. The old man asked him, "Young man, where are you going to?" "Grandpa, I don't want to be alive anymore. So, now I am searching for ways to commit suicide," the young man answered. Then, the old man questioned him again, "Why do you want to die? Young man like you shouldn't die. An old man like me whose hair is completely gray, whose body is not strong anymore, should die. The man like you is still young and strong. " "Grandpa, I have done so many works to be rich. I did the works, from which other people could earn money easily but when I tried, I failed. It's even hard for me to afford food for myself. That's why I want to die," he explained. The old man responded, "Ok! I've got your point. But try to live 15 years more! Because you still need 15 years to reach your time of death. If you want to commit suicide, you can do it at that time." Besides, he also gave a bow and 7 arrows to the young man since he moaned about how he was going to live in poor life. And the old man told him, "You can ask for whatever you want after you shot an arrow. The things you asked would come true. But when you shoot, each arrow must hit the target." Then, the poor young man took it and went back home. When he arrived home, he wanted to try it that did work or not. So, he wished, "I want the best suit and a pair of shoes," and shot an arrow. At that moment, all the things he wished came true. He was amazed and accepted that it was real. Therefore, he wished to have house, money, farms and servants. He shot the arrows one by one and at last, he got all. Soon after, he got married and enjoyed his life. He lived on that life until one night he dreamed of the old man whom he met when the time he tried to commit suicide. He was shocked and realized that he had just left 5 days to reach 15 years of time. But, he did not want to die anymore. So, he seriously planned to avoid the old man. Finally, he had got an idea that was to escape to the sea. He decided to build a big box where a person and food could fit in. After he finished building it, he put enough amount of food for one month into the big box. Then, he fit himself into the box and let his servants send it to the sea. But one end of copper wire was tied to the box and another end was tied to the tree on the land. He told them that he was going to stay inside the big box for 30 days. He also let them come and take him out soon after 30 days. Two days before his lifespan ended, the old man, Grim Reaper, looked for the poor man. He went to the poor man's village but the poor man was not there. He was amazed and said, "When the time I met this poor man last 15 years, he really wanted to die. But now It's time for him to go to the afterlife and I looked for him in the mountains, in the valley but I couldn't find him anywhere. For the last time, let me just go and seek for him near the sea." Along with that thought, he went to the beach. However, he didn't see him on the beach as well. Since he couldn't find the poor man in anywhere, he felt discouraged and planned to take a rest under a tree that was in his sight. While he was walking toward there, he was caught on something and fell. It was tiny copper wire. Since he was curious about what it was for and he pulled it. As he pulled out, it was a big box. He hit the box with his elbow and opened it. Inside, he saw the poor man. As soon as the poor man saw him, he knelt down, and he begged not to let him die by holding the old man's legs tightly. The old man told him, "Poor young man, it is your time now. There is no way to let you avoid this. And I had been looking for you for 3 days. I also really struggled to find you." Since the old man didn't accept what he was begging for, he said that he wanted to meet his family for the last time and he ran to his home. Even he ran so fast, pitifully, he fell and died on the way where was still so far from his home. Transcription (by Lu Awng) Moi shawng de grai matsan ai la kasha langai mi nga ai da.
