Description:Translation (Seng Pan) The story I am going to tell you is the parents should not disagree when they instruct their children. A long time ago, there was a huge banyan tree. And it fruited so well. Many different kinds of birds came and had fruits. Humans also came and took rest in the shade of it. During day time, the birds came and had fruits. An owl lived in the hollow of the tree. As all the birds came to eat fruits, a blue-throated barbet also went there. One day, he rested on a branch that was at a bit lower than the branch where he used to rest before. There he saw the owl. The owl was female and the blue-throated barbet was a male bird. As he had met the owl for two, three times, he came to love her. They got married and lived together. After some years, they had got a child. During day time while the blue throated barbet went out and had fruits, his wife, the owl, just stayed inside the hollow. So, she instructed her child, "Dear, you should make a sound, puk puk." Her baby also followed what she said. At night, the mother bird, owl, went out to find food. Her husband, the blue-throated barbet, looked after the child. So, he also instructed, "We should not make the sound, puk puk. We should say tuk tuk, dear." In the day time, the mother said, "I thought you to say puk puk and why you say puk puk." Then the child made a sound, puk puk again. When the farther arrived back, he said, "I let you say tuk tuk. Say tuk tuk!" As the parents instructed him in different ways, he was placed in a dilemma. So, he decided not to make any sound. The mother bird got angry when he followed his father. The father also didn't like when he did as his mother said. Therefore, he kept silence. When the parents encouraged him to make a sound again, he decided to say puk tuk as his mother let him say puk puk and his father instructed him to say tuk tuk. He intended to cover both instructions. So, the parents couldn't blame anything on the child. From that time on, he also kept saying puk tuk. The mother and father birds disagreed with each other when they instructed their child. That's why their child didn't follow not only the mother but also the father. He became separated and said "puk tuk" on his own. This is all.
