The Clever Woman

There were two old women living together–one was clever and the other was foolish. They had a wrap, cow and a small piece of land. The clever woman suggested, “Since we have only one wrap, you can use it during the day and I’ll use it at night. Also, the front part of the cow belongs to you and the hind part is mine. The foolish woman shivered all night. She had to feed the cow whereas the clever woman took all the milk. The foolish woman was quite unhappy. Seeing her plight, her neighbour advised her to soak the wrap in water, not to feed the cow. The woman did as she was told. Now, the clever woman shivered at night as the wrap was wet. When she went milk the cow, kicked her as it was hungry. The clever woman now realized what she did to her companion. She promised not to do any wrong to her. Now both of them lived happily.
