Description:Translation (by Maran Seng Pan) This story is about how people discovered and started using flutes. It was the time when people didn't know how to play the instruments. There was a hamlet. At night, a young couple from that hamlet always dated in the bamboo grove which was behind a pigpen. They met there and stayed up all night talking. At first, they could have incessant conversations. Even they couldn't stop talking till the cock crowed in the morning. But after a period of time, they had less topic to talk about after the cock crowed. Sometimes both of them just kept silent and listened to the sounds of wind in the trees and the rustling of leaves. Since they were talking in the bamboo grove, they heard the bamboo creaking sound "nyet nyet" when the wind blew through. They only listened to it till the daybreak and went back home. One night when they met, they talked about how much they loved each other. However, after the cock crowed, they kept silent again like the previous night since they had no more topics to talk about. That night, they heard enchanted sound of creaking bamboos. The sound of rustling leaves had delighted them very much. The man thought if he cut it and played, it would be sounded better. With that thought, the man cut a bamboo stalk with his sword. (Ancient Kachin men used to take their sword wherever they went.) However, it was not like what he expected. But he took it back home to use as the pillow. In the middle of the night, he heard a nice sound. He told an old man about it that he heard a pleasant creaking bamboo sound but it disappeared when he cut it. The old man asked him where they met. He answered they dated in the bamboo grove. Then the old man told him, "Young man, that is the place Madai nats (They're kind of Nats, spirits) always go through by playing the instruments. And the pregnant women shouldn't walk by that place. If they meet the humans when they are passing by, they always take them." However, the man was enthusiastic to make the sound with bamboo like Madai Nat did. As he was completely obsessed with the sound, he made and used different kinds of instruments with bamboo. Because of him, bamboo instruments started to be known.
