This is an old story, and it is about how Naga people were born, or it is appropriate to say derived. The people from a rocky tomb.They came from a big rock. As soon as they came out, there was a spirit who gave them clothing, and the first person got bigger clothes and the rest got smaller and smaller clothes. At the end the Yasawa people came out and they got only a small piece of cloth, just to cover their genitals. Actually he meant to say that it was the Naga people who came last, because this was the creation of all people. The last people did not get any clothes, so they lived naked. Still here are some naked Nagas. The Yasawa people got only little clothes. The one who came after they did not get any clothes. 1’59” When they came out they could communicate with the spirit, And also they could communicate with animals. Human beings were the cause of disturbance 2’36” They disturbed the spirits so much and so the spirit got the idea saying “let us compete with the humans, in throwing each other. Whoever can throw the furthest, will win.” And human beings did not have a net, so they could not win. But the spirit did have. 3’08” So human beings accepted that competition, even though they did not have the net. The spirit threw the net to the human being, and after the net was thrown on him,, the human being could not see the spirit.3’34” After having the net thrown on them, the humans cannot see but the spirit can see and also the humans cannot communicate with the animals any more, Then the spirit asked to the dog, by which part of your body can you see me? And the dog answered that he sees by his anus, so the spirit threw the net over the dog’s anus. So the dog could see the spirit until today.
