have arms or legs. He might not be able do the job. So he asked advice from Batara
Narada who was the younger brother of Batara Guru. Unfortunately Narada was also
confused. The Naga god became very upset.

ground. Not long after that, those teardrops became three beautiful shining eggs which
looked like jewels. Then Batara Narada advised him to offer those shining eggs to
Batara Guru.

Naga god was arrogant and the bird attacked him.

Being attacked, one egg fell to earth. Then Naga god was hiding in the bushes but
the bird was waiting for him. The bird attacked for the second time and one egg fell

some steps, and went down the door. Then he came to another door, knocked at it. The door
opened, and he saw a fat toad sitting. She asked what he wanted. He answered; I should get
the prettiest and finest carpet in the world. Then she called a young toad; Bring me the

kingdom. Meanwhile his brothers just got some coarse handkerchiefs from a shepherds
wives whom they had met. When the king saw Simpletons carpet he was very astonished and
said; Well, the kingdom belongs to the Simpleton. But his two brothers argued that it was
impossible that simpleton should be king, They asked the king to make a new agreement.

blew three feathers, which they were to follow. Those of the two eldest again went east and
west, and simpletons feather flew straight up, and fell down near the trap-door. Again the fat
toad gave him a ring sparkled with jewels. Meanwhile his two brothers just got old carriage-

So the king declared; Who brings the most beautiful woman home will be the king. He again
blew the three feathers into the air. Then Simpleton went down to the fat toad, and said; I am
to take home the most beautiful woman. The she gave him a yellow turnip which had been
hollowed out. Mournfully Simpleton said; What am I to do with it?. The toad answered;
Just put one of my little toads into it!. Then Simpleton seized one little toad and put her
into the yellow coach. Surprisingly the little toad turned into a beautiful maiden. So
Simpleton took her to the king. On the other hand, his brother brought peasant women to the
kingdom.

When the king saw the women he said; After my death the kingdom belongs to my
youngest son. But the two eldest brothers kept arguing that whose wife could leap through a
