      In Savatthi there was a Brahmin named Adinnapubbaka
      (“he that has not given before”). There was nothing
      given to anyone before by him. He had only one son
      who was dear and delightful to him. The Brahmin,
      wanting to give his son an ornament, thought “If I ask
      the goldsmith, fees would have to be paid”. He
      pounded the gold himself, made polished earrings and
      gave them to him. Because of this his son was known
      as “Mattakundali (polished earrings)”.
