Description:English translation (by Rita Seng Mai) There were three pals: a sparrow, a tortoise and an eagle which lived happily in the forest. They were true friends and loyal to each other. One day, that male sparrow took his wife to a big tree that was near from his friends as a nest for them. And he said, "I've got two loyal and true friends. So let's go and live near them by making a safe nest on a big tree." His wife replied, "OK, let's live there." Then the sparrow couple lived there together. Soon the female sparrow laid some eggs and it was coming the time for the eggs to hatch out. One day, a father and his two sons from the nearest village came to the forest to hunt wild animals. They hunted for a long time, but they couldn't see any preys. They were exhausted so they sat under that big tree where that sparrow family lived to rest for a while. While they were drinking water, they heard the chirping of the sparrows and knew that there were some birds on that tree. "It's getting dark and dark, just catch those birds and let's go home!" said father. His eldest son replied, "Okay!" to his father and started climbing that tree. They hunted for a long time, but they couldn't see any preys. As the parent sparrows saw that thing, they tried to move all of nestlings from the nest to a safe place but there were many nestlings, so it was too heavy to carry them all at the same time. They thought of a plan to save their family. The mother sparrow said to her husband, "Go and get help from your friends!" The father and his sons lit fire and started finding where the nest was by a flambeau. Then that father sparrow tried to put out the flame of the flambeau not to see them well and went to ask for help from his friend eagle. He told everything to his friend and asked for help. And the eagle helped him. Then, he went to the nearest river, got wet his big wings by the water and tried to put out the fire. When that father and his sons lit the fire again, he got wet his wings in the water and splashed them on the light of flambeau again. Since he was going back and forth to the river, he got exhausted. Then, the father sparrow went to the tortoise to ask for help and told everything about the dangerous situation. The tortoise agreed to help him as he was a loyal and true friend. After that, he covered his whole body with weeds and mud from the river. He tried to put out the fire with those weeds and mud, and it did. The fire was put out. They three thought that they couldn't win the battle because they were only three and they were very tired already. At that time, they saw a lion came from a deep forest to them. Then, they decided to ask for help from the lion with the thought of making a friend now, even though they were not friends with the lion. They said, "My friend lion, please help us to drive those people out with your loud, powerful roar and your strength. And let's be friend forever!" They told to the lion that they were already exhausted and those three people tried to kill us so they asked the lion for help. And the lion agreed to help them since friend needed to help to each other when the other one had faced adversities. As the lion roared, those three people were afraid and ran to their home hastily and quickly on a dark night.
