      It is said that once a doctor wandered in the village
      practicing medicine, and not having received any work,
      he departed hungry and saw many young boys playing at
      the village gate. Thinking, �I will cause them to be
      bitten by a snake, treat them and thus get food�, he
      stretched his head into a tree hollow and found a
      snake sleeping. �Hello, boys, here is a mynah bird,
      pick it up�, he said. Then a certain young boy
      grabbed the snake tightly by the neck, took it out,
      and knowing its snake-nature, shouting, threw it onto
      the head of the doctor standing nearby. The snake
      coiled around the doctor�s back, bit him strongly, and
      thus brought about the fall of his life-body.
