Once upon a time, there were three brothers in a village. They were 'Ma Gam, 'Ma Naw' and 'Ma La'. Then, There was a prisoner in that village. He needed to do things what people ordered him. He worked as a servant in another village. Then, he went back from there. On his way, he saw a huge den. He was so scared. At night, he slept at those three brothers' house as a guest. He told them about the snake's den which he saw in the afternoon. He told them about it because he was frightened. The three brothers said, My friend, just show us where it is. We will kill it. Then the servant said, No! Even its den is huge, then the snake will be very big. You three can't kill it. Although the three brothers wanted to go there, the one who knew where the den was afraid. They persuaded him to take them there. Then they showed their abilities. The youngest brother 'Ma La' put a bunch of bamboos and said, Take a look at what we can do. He struck all those bamboos at once. 'Ma La' showed his ability first. All the bamboos were cut into spans. Then 'Ma Naw' showed his ability too. He cut those bamboos into the length of a palm. It was the eldest brother's turn to show his ability. He struck the bamboos smaller than the pieces which 'Ma Naw' had cut. After showing their abilities, they said, See! We've got this kind of ability. We can kill a snake easily. They insisted on letting them know where the den was. So, the servant told them, Okay then. I will show you where it is. He took them there. They saw the den and stood beside it. They were waiting for the snake to come out. A few moments later, a huge, black snake came out from the den. Then, 'Ma gam, the smartest one, cut the snake by his sword. The snake's skin was as tough as the tree trunk. It was really hard to strike the snake. There came out the sound of the sword and the snake's skin hitting hard each other. Then, 'Ma Naw' cut the snake by his sword. After that, 'Ma La' struck the snake again. But there weren't any wounds on the snake no matter how many times they struck. The snake wrapped the loops around the three brothers and took them into its den. Since then, the snake started to kill the people. Transcription (Lu Hkawng) Ya ngai bai tsun na maumwi gaw Lapu e shawng kawa sat hpang ai maumwi re.
