page 5The woodcutter was very angry with himself for not telling her not to waste any part of the fruit. He was abusing himself and threw away the food placed in front of him. After nine months his wife delivered a baby boy normally , the dwarfs are very small, but this new born was ten centimetre tall, but surprisingly it had beard like an 18 years old boy! But he also had a 5 centimetre long pony tail hair like a hindu priest!
The dwarf woodcutter was very angry and upset . He felt that the new born was so small yet had beard like a grown up due to the curse of the goddess. Since his wife did not wait seven days before eating the pickjed up fruit. He picked a up his axe and ropes and left the house in dismay.If the stupid wife could wait for seven days and did not throw away any part of the fruit, the child would not have been like a lizard, with a long hair tail but a strong healthy normal baby.
The woodcutter’s –wife broke down crying “it was all my fault.”
The baby is hungry and cries out, but no one comes to pick him up or feed it. There was none to care for the baby. The woodcutter had left the house, now his wife was ready to go to river to commit suicide.
On his way, she was blaming the goddess, “you have given me a child, but alas, you had this in mind?”

You useless women , you have already eaten the fruit? Why did you throw away the head and skin of the fruit? You just pick it up and eat the whole thing. His wife was bringing some food for her husband, quickly she came to the spot and ate up all the parts of the fruit lying on the ground.

Take a bath, put on fresh clothings , oil your hair, make up your face with red kumkum and chandan, you will then get a fresh fruit, eat it up, you will be a mother of a healthy son”. The woodcutter’s wife got up quickly, and put oil in her hair, took a deep bath in the temple pond. After that she came home, told her husband about the dream. The dwarf woodcutter was very happy – “We have received the blessings of the goddess , there is nothing to worry now. When you get the fruit , just eat it up.”
