Punishment of Haughty Santol


  - "I am a very good tree", - Santol said...
  - "I bear a lot of fruits every year.
  - They have tender reddish tinge.
  - And are so sweet and tasty.
  - You are laughingstock, bamboo.
  - You produce fruits only before your death.
  - You are good for nothing."
  These haughty words were overheard
  by windy spirit.
  The gale blew.
  Santol tree became crippled.
  Many its branches were broken.
  But bamboo was happily survived.
