The Brahmin, knowing his son was dying, thought to
himself, Those who come to see him, they will see the
wealth inside my house, thus I will take him outside.
He had his son taken outside and had him laid down
on the veranda. When he was dead, the Brahmin had his
body burned, and went to the cremation ground daily,
and cried, Where has my only little son gone! Where
has my only little son gone!
