This is the short version After Dongpung was rescued and ate some salt he went back – he was about to die before taking salt but because of that rock salt he survived, then with the instruction from that person he went back, he was told not to go downstream. In order to know which was which direction the paddy husk was thrown in the water. After travelling for a while there was a dove, Dongpung heard the dove saying ‘dongpung u ti uh ‘Dongpung you die’ then he took out a stone and killed the dove (tuk pahtu). In order to roast the dove he needed a fire, and in the meantime he saw monkeys in the tree with fire on their hands beating a drum (nungL), (weL ‘fire’). Then he requested to the monkey, my dear grandson please give me the fire because I am hungry and I want to roast the dove. They refused to give the fire, so instead of giving to him, they threw the fire on the water, and after many times, Dongpung thought up a plan, he picked up a red ant (haangho) and threw it on the tree but it did not affect the monkey, they just started eating them, then he picked up another type of ant (tangdaang sirang) – the ants have their tail pointing up, and that ant entered inside the hair of the monkey and they could not tolerate it, so they threw the fire and the drum to Dongpung. After that from that fire he had roasted the dove. Before that there was paddy from the neck of the dove, it was stored there, and after that in the fireplace the paddy which was found from the neck of the dove was sown there and that is how we got paddy which is chahsuh cham. This is called ahu dhan in Assamese. (Other paddy came from Tongku Wa, which is RangFraa). nst-pho_20121029_13_SM_T_Katteng_GettingFireAndDrum_Duration 6’03”, How the Phong people got fire; also recorded as nst-pho_20121029_01_SM_JVC_Katteng_GettingFireAndDrum
