Description:Translation (Htoi Awng) The story called 'An orphan boy and the boy who had many brothers' is about that we should not humiliate someone although he or she is humble. There are many educated people in the world. One day, the boys who had many brothers called the orphan boy to hunt the birds. The orphan boy agreed to join because he was afraid of them. They told the orphan boy, "You set the trap on the ground. We will set the trap on the tree where there are many fruits." He said, "Alright." While the boys were setting the trap on the tree to catch the birds which ate fruits, the orphan boy set the trap on the ground. In the early morning of the next day, the boys went there without the orphan boy to check what kind of animals got caught in the trap. They found out that there was a deer in the trap which was set by the orphan boy. There was a jungle fowl in their trap. Then, they put the jungle fowl in the orphan boy's trap and took the deer. And they hung the deer on the trap which was on the tree. Then, they went back home. In the evening, the boys told orphan boy, "Hey, let's go and check our traps." He said, "Okay. Let's go!" The boys told him to check together what they would get in the traps on the day they decided to catch some preys. They were afraid that the orphan boy would go and check it first. When they went and check, there was a jungle fowl in the orphan boy's trap. The orphan boy thought to himself, "There caught a deer in the trap which was at the top of the tree. How could a deer get caught in that trap? It's impossible." He felt unhappy. Then he said, "How could a deer get caught there? And there caught a bird in the trap which was set on the ground. It's impossible! Let's call the judge to decide." They went to the judge to decide whether it was possible or not. The orphan boy called the owl to be a judge. It seems that the boys didn't call the judge. The boys told nonstop about they caught a deer in their trap. The owl was just listening to them. Then, the boys said, "The judge, decide for us." They said, "We called you as a judge. We believe in you and we will accept just the way you decide." The owl said, "Fire the wet sand! Can it be burnt? Fire the wild plantain. Can it be burnt? Same like thaat, there is no reason that a deer go up the tree to find some food. The deer never climbs the tree. I am very sure that you took the deer from the trap of the orphan boy and hung it on your trap. You bullied the orphan boy." The owl decided just like that. Kachin people usually tell this story that there is the truth or law although the person is very poor or humble.
