The sparrow and the crow were good friends. Once, a particular household had laid out chilies and rice grains on a mat in their back-yard to dry. Seeing this, the sparrow asked the crow, "Buddy, what do you think? Will you be able to finish eating those chilies before I can finish eating those grains?" The crow replied with certainty, "I would be able to finish eating the chilies first" The sparrow said, "No, I would finish eating the grains first." The crow asked, "If you can't, what will happen then?" The sparrow answered, "If I can't do it first, then you would be welcome to peck my chest and have it. But what if you can't finish first?" The crow responded, "Then you would be welcome to do the same and have my chest too." Having agreed, they touched down and began to eat the grains and the chilies as they were supposed to. The sparrow crunched down the grains one by one, and the crow, one after another swallowed up the chilies. Gradually, the crow was through with eating the chilies, but by then the sparrow could not even finish a quarter of the grains.

But, on good days, when his baby sister was quiet, after he had eaten his evening meal and his father hadn't returned, she would tell him stories of Rupban and the Baby Prince, of Princess Kalabati and the Monkey Prince, of Lalkamal and Nilkamal, of Khana and Mihir. But more than the stories of kings and queens, of hermits and holy men, of talking birds and magic spells, what Kamal liked to hear most of all was the story of their home village on the banks of the river.
