Description:Translation (by Mike Tu Awng) There are many folk stories in our greatgrand parents' time. Among them, there is also a story called dead-buffalo, alive-buffalo or buffalo-dead, buffalo-alive. They told the story like this: Long time ago, a nephew and an uncle went out to buy a buffalo. When they got to a place, the Uncle saw a fat, beautiful buffalo. And he said, "Let's buy this one because it's fat and beautiful". However, the nephew said, "Uncle, we can't do anything with it "This buffalo will be a dead-buffalo". "Because of that let's not buy it". So, they passed on and at one place, they saw just about over three years old, very thin femal buffalo. The nephew said, "Uncle, let's buy this one". They bought it and went home. That three years old female buffalo, later, gave birth to many calves.They became many. Even though they bought a young female buffalo, that buffalo could give birth to many calves. That kind of buffalo, they called alive-buffalo. The buffalo that weighted 150 visse could not give birth even though it was mature, fat, and very beautiful. That buffalo, they call a dead-buffalo. What it means is that the work that is beneficial to many people is called an alive-buffalo, but the work that is not beneficial to people is like buying a dead-buffalo. This story is called "a dead-buffalo/ alive buffalo" in Danai Hugawng region. Transcription (by Lu Awng) Jiwoi jiwa ni a maumwi mausa.
