Mistaken Gifts



A boy called Saigon lived in a village with his parents. His parents wanted him to get married and finally decided upon a beautiful maiden who lived in the neighbouring village. A man was sent to the girl’s house to tell her parents that Saigon would like to marry their daughter. When the man reached their house he found them nodding their heads while relishing a meal. The man thought this was a sign that they had agreed to the wedding and rushed home with the news. Overjoyed, Saigon’s parents started planning for the wedding. There was a custom in the village that the groom’s family had to give many gifts to the girl’s family. Saigon’s family bought lovely gifts and set off for the neighbouring village. But when they reached there, the girl’s family said they were not ready to get their daughter married.
