THE SNAKE AND THE FARMER

There was once a farmer. He had a small piece of land. He grew paddy on it. There came a year when no rain fell andthe crops failed. The farmer did not know what to do. He was desperate.

He sat down in his field and began to think: "Perhaps the gods are angry with me. That is why no rains came."

When he rose, he saw in a corner of that field a big black snake coming out of its pit. The snake had a large hood.

The farmer thought: "Ah! This must be the God of the field. I have never worshipped Him. That must be the reason for the failure of the crops. I must now worship Him."

He went home and brought some milk. The snake had by then crept back into the pit. So the farmer poured some milk into the pit. ' After praying before the snake-pit for some time, he left the place.
