prashanth and shruthi,
khanditha, this was way too easy. now i remember – i created this quiz when i was in one of those sympathetic moods after telling my son the story of PUNYAKOTI!
Inspired by a folk tale, ‘Govina Haadu’ (The song of the cow) tells the story about Punyakoti, a pious cow. This simple and moving folk song ends with the triumph of the honest. Adbhuta, a hungry tiger, chances upon the gentle Punyakoti. The tiger is elated and gets ready to eat her. Punyakoti begs for a temporary stay so that she can go home to feed her calf. Adbhuta is certain Punyakoti will never return, but on good faith lets her go. Punyakoti feeds her calf, asks other cows to treat her little one as their own, and dutifully returns to the tiger. Adbhuta is stunned by this act of honesty, and stricken by guilt, chooses to jump off a cliff.
