Description:Translated (by Maran Seng Pan) This is about a poor orphan boy. Many years ago, in a large village, there was a very poor boy whose parents and grandparents already passed away. And he stayed alone in his house. He was a diligent man and he always helped his neighbors willingly. However, people always treated him in disgust. When he visited neighbors, they didn't let him go inside the house. Even when they gave him the food, they only allowed him to eat in front of the house. In those days, the villagers built a beautiful big road from South to North. In that work, the villagers assigned him to dig up the part where was very dirty with loads of pig and cow poo. As he was digging up, he unearthed a golden cock. So, he whispered to himself, "What should I do with this valuable golden cock? Where should I keep it?" In a moment, he got an idea to keep it in the wax gourd. So, he scratched out the pulp of wax gourd and put the golden cock in it. In the evening, he took the wax gourd back home after digging up the road. During that time, the King looked for a man to get married to his daughter as he was getting older. Hence, the king announced to every village that he was going to choose a man for the princess. When the poor orphan saw the rich men from the village went to the palace by wearing expensive suits, he also wanted to go there. But he was in dilemma and nobody helped him to cut his hair. There were many lice in his hair too. He also didn't have proper clothes to wear but he decided to follow the rich men from his village. Because he was curious about how the King would choose the man for his daughter. So, he put the wax gourd into his cross-body basket and followed them. As the other men saw he was coming with them, they said, "The King will not choose the man who is dirty and disgusting like you as his son-in-law. You don't need to go there. Don't go!" However, he went after them slowly. When men from the villages arrived at the palace, a cock crowed loudly, "The good man is at the back. The one who will become King's son-in-law is at the back. At the back!" Since the King heard it, he planned to let his daughter throw the flower wreath. The man who was put the wreath on would become the princess's husband. The cock kept crowing noisily that the good man was at the back. When the poor man reached the palace, it was the time that the princess threw the flower wreath. And it was put on a man whose hair was long, clothes were so dirty and torn. Seeing that, all the rich, handsome, and powerful men were shocked. They mumbled disappointedly to themselves, "How could the man who is disgusting like him be the King's son-in-law? It should be the one like us." Then, the King asked him, "What are you carrying?" He opened his cross-body basket. At that moment, the golden cock shimmered the whole palace. It brightened not only inside the palace but also outside. Thereupon, the King accepted him as his son-in-law and let him wash up. He also cut his hair. The next morning, he dressed up well and got married to the princess in front of the King and crowd. He lived happily ever after. Transcription (by Lu Awng) Jahkrai ma a lam.
