Description:Translation (by Seng Pan) I am going to tell a story about how a mythical serpent was killed by Thunder God. A long time ago, there lived a family with three children in a village called Namsan. The family had one son and two daughters. The son was around 10 years old. As he was old enough to do some works, every evening after school he fetched the cows from grazing to home. One evening in the rainy season, he went out to fetch the cows on the other side of Lailung bridge. And he had to cross Namsan river to get that side. On his way back home, he was not able to swim alone to the other side because the river water level increased. So, he held a bull's tail and crossed the river. When he got in the middle of it, a mythical serpent grabbed and ate him. At dusk, all the cows arrived back home but the boy didn't. So, the family went out to look for him. Since, they didn't find him anywhere, they were so sad and worried. Hence, the father dived into Namsan river by biting on a sword to find the son. And he swam to the lower part of the river. When he reached Mali river, he asked Nats (Nat is a kind of spirit) about his son. They told him that he was taken to the source of Namsan river. So, he swam there again to find his son's body. When he reached there, he was told that his son was taken to the top of the big stone. Again, he followed to the stone but he didn't find his son's body. There was a hole at the top of the big stone. He entered that hole and followed the way. Soon, he arrived at Lailung Mountain. (In the middle of the mountain, there is a lake. Its water never runs dry and there are a lot of fish. But people cannot eat that fish. If you eat, you will die.) When the father got near that lake, he was told again that his son was brought to the top of the stone. Then he ran to that place but he couldn't find his son. He was so angry. So, he came out of water and went back home. He told a shaman about that he wanted to kill the mythical serpent which ate his son. He worshiped to the Thunder God and asked to kill the mythical serpent. Then, the big stone which was as big as a house and where the mythical serpent was hiding, was struck by lightning. And it killed the mythical serpent. The stone was broken into three pieces. There the mythical serpent's tail was also appeared. When the father read Shaba leave and interpreted what happened, he saw the mythical serpent was already dead. Then he went there and dragged out from its tail but he couldn't find out what happened to his son and where his son's body was. Even now so many people go and see those three broken stones. Before many youths used to visit and take pictures there. Once, an image which seemed like mythical serpent appeared in the background of a picture. The story is based on what truly happened in the past. Transcription (by Lu Awng) Ya ngai hkai na gabaw gaw mu nat jaw nna baren hpe e ah chye sat kau ai maumwi re.
