Description:Translation (Seng Pan) Once upon a time, there was an older adult who was so scared of snake. In his village, there also had a person whose house was still in progress. That person asked for help the whole village to roof his house. In the morning, except the older adult who was afraid of snake, all villagers went there to help very early. Among them, the man who went first killed a snake which was as big as a wrist. He chopped the snake and threw on the road. The older adult also went there with his grandson. As he was old age, he brought a spear to use as a walking stick. On the way, his grandson first saw the chopped snake, he run to his grandfather and said, "Grandpa, there is a snake. I am so scared." Grandfather said, "I am also afraid. Where is it?" By saying that, he stabbed his grandson with the spear, he was holding. His grandson was dead. And he was so sad. But after keeping his grandson's body in the bushes, he continued to walk as he was eager to find who killed the snake. When he arrived there, he helped in splitting the bamboos and making thin bamboo strips. He assisted in anything he could. He wanted to tell the villagers what happened to his grandson as soon as he arrived. However, he waited for dinner time since not all the villagers were there yet. And he helped in building the house without showing a sad face. At the dinner table, he told about his grandson. He said, "This morning, when my grandson and I came here, on the way, we saw a dead snake which was as big as wrist. Who killed and chopped the snake? The one who killed the snake would be an excellent man. He is so brave. I don't dare to kill the small or big snake. I wonder who would the brave man be?" At that time, the man who killed the snake was so proud of himself and said, "I'm that man. I'm brave. Before I killed the snake, which was bigger than that." Grandfather said, "Now I see the one who killed my grandson. It's not me. It's you. You didn't clean the snake up. So, I stabbed my grandson, and he was dead. It's your fault. That's why you have to give indemnity for the loss of my grandson. When you killed a snake, you should throw to a very far place. I should demand indemnities from you, shouldn't I, elders?" The elders replied that he should take the responsibilities since it was his fault killing and leaving the dead snake there. So, they let the man give indemnities for every single part of the grandson like hair, hand, leg, organs, etc. Besides, the man had to bury the grandson's body and also hold the funeral by offering buffaloes. That's why we should not leave the dead snake on the road after we killed it. We should throw to a far place. Our ancestors and parents had told this.
