Description:Translation (by Seng Pan) Once upon a time, there lived a widow and her beloved son in a village. As they lived on, her son came of age and she arranged a marriage for him. But her daughter-in-law didn't have affection for her. She only gave attention to her husband. That time people in the mountain like them did shifting cultivations for their living. So, the son couldn't only take care of his mother at home. He had to go and work in the field. He also went hunting and caught the fish to send home for his mother who had got older and become blind. So, the mother only stayed in her room and ate whatever her daughter-in-law prepared for her. As her teeth were not strong anymore, her son sent meat for her. But she could have only bones. When her son delivered fish, her daughter-in-law cooked small shrimps and crabs for her. Since she couldn't eat those, she kept them at mantel to show her son when he got back home. Moreover, her daughter-in-law only fed scorched rice instead of good rice. As she couldn't chew, she kept them too. When her son arrived back home, he asked, "Mom, I sent meat and fish for you. Have you had them?" "Really! did you? Your wife has prepared these for me. I couldn't chew them. So, I kept them to show you. Have a look at them!" she replied her son by showing what she had kept. Her son found out those were bones, scorched rice, small shrimps and crabs. Then, he asked his wife, "Why didn't you cook fish and meat I sent for Mom?" "No! I prepared for her. She had them. I don't know where she got those things," his wife lied. The mother was so sad to see that her son was confused to trust whom. Although she got very angry at her daughter-in-law, she didn't show her anger. One day, she became so sick and passed away. The body was kept at home for three days. When it was time to bury, nobody could lift her body. It was stuck to the floor. Her brothers and relatives also tried to lift her body but they failed. The villagers were shocked and disappointed. At last, they had got an idea to let her only one daughter-in-law lift the body. As soon as the daughter-in-law lifted it up, she was hugged tightly by her dead mother-in-law. And she also died there. But the two dead bodies couldn't be separated. Therefore, the people put them in a coffin and buried them together. From that time on, the banyan trees never grow only one. It means it always grows while attached to another tree. Transcription (by Lu Awng) Moi shawg de da mare langai mi kaw da grai tsawra hkat ai kanu hte kasha gaida yen nu nga ai da.
