Once, in very ancient times, Cholsi Okkhungshi Jari Jahpha, Cholshi, the god of the winds, went roving about the length and breadth of lands and seas. As he thus scoured up and down the face of the whole world, the hairs of his legs came in violent contact with the delicate body of Wahphangma Ringrangma, the younger sister of Dura Kochokrong Songdu Koberong. Golapa Nangade and Khuhsimang Chongdingpa.
Due to injuries received at that time from the formidable impact, Wahphangma lay in a moribund state suffering chronic pains and sever bruises on her whole body. Dura Kochokrong deeply lamented the sad state of his sister’s devastated form.
With a view to restoring Wahphangma to her former health and vigor by means of exorcisms and sacrificial offerings. The older brother unscrupulously seized the spirit of Chasama Mongjima. He speedly bound it up with a strong olive-green rope and carried it hurriedly away. As the olivaccous rope “ touched her spirit, Chasama herself suddenly felt physically unwell. A sickening chill passed through her body And she shiveringly trembled from an icy coldness. Red blothches began to appear on her skin. The reason for all these sudden symptoms was that her spirit was being slowly but relentlessly dragged away by the elder brother of Wahphangma. This was the first rape of a human spirit.
By accident Khatchi Biare and Rangshi Tokkini the maternal uncle of Chasma happened to come by on their way back home from a marketplace. Seeing the captor heartlessly taking away the spirit of their niece by force, they asked him the reason for his savage behavior. Golapa Nagande verbosely replied.
I am carrying her away in order to offer her as a sacrificial victim on behalf of our niece. Wahphangma, who is in a precarious condition as a result of her having suffered a severe blow from the hairs of the legs of Cholsi Okkhuangshi.
The maternal uncle of Chasama Mongjima were quite unsympathetic with the captors cause. They retorted with fierce determination.
No! No ! No! We will not permit the spirit to go with three. We will not allow our dear niece to be taken away. No! No! No!
At Saljongpatra Rongdogachol, Salgra and Susime met the bickering foursome and addressing Golapa Nagande asked: For what purpose is the spirit of Chasama being thus led captive?
He answered “ I am taking her away to use as a sacrificial offering needful for the restoration to health of my younger sister, Wahphangma.
Then Salgra advised Khatchi Biari and Rangshi Tokkini what they should do to win back their niece, Chasama saying, “ Go and pluck some hairs from the legs and eyelashes of Ahni Mane” Mother Earth and Chini Pilde., Mother water. Next fill your mouths with their blood and perform an exorcism by blowing out blood in aprays before an open, conical shaped bamboo framework (named chokarek). Call out repeatedly the name of yoyr niece. Do this faithfully and the life of the girl will be restored.
When Khatchi Biari and Rangshi Tokkini dutifully performed the exorcism according to the directions of Salgra, strength began to return to Chasama and she was soon restored to her normal state of health and energy. Fresh blood surged through her veins. Her appetite was revived and she was able to eat and drink as befor.
Meanwhile Golapa Nagande was still sadly bemoaning the rueful plight of Wahphangma because her head still lay inert and her body was yet devoid of its former strength and beauty. Salgra then commanded them.
“Go seize Ahbengma Disngma, Matchima Rorima and Mahsima Mahbima in lieu of Chassama Mongjima”
Accordingly Golapa Nagande carried away vital human principles of Ahbengma Disengma and Mahsima Mahbema in order to alleviate the sufferings of his sister. Wahphangma After a series of exorcisms performed by the brothers and their relatives, it was seen that the olive-green rope binding the prisoners became taut. This was the signal that their efforts had met with success, so Golapa Nagande untied the captives and set them free. Golapa Nagande thouthlesly left the ropr and came in to the courtyard of Durama Imbama.
Ultimately the olivaccous rope came into the possessions of Aber Rora, who used it to bind up the children of Shangma Dripa Chondripa a simple human patriarch. For his foul deed Shangma Dripa relentlessly pursued Abet Rora. Finally captured him and was about to deal with him a death blow when Salgra incidentally made his appearance and reconciled them to each other. Afterwards Abet Rora and Shangma Dripa became first friend, living in mutual accord and respecting each others rights and privileges. Never again did Abet Rora molest the children of men, unless they greatly offended him by their wanton encroachments and audacious intrusions upon the privacy of his habitat.
In the latter stages of the destructive war between the children of Misi Saljong on one hand and the children of Ahning Chining on the other in the days of yore. Abet Rora was in great danger of losing his life for want of food, drink and shelter. He was writhing in agony from the pangs of hunger and thirst, when he was befriended by Angker-rong Damchong” who took him to his home and fed him with the fruit of the khotamari tree (turpinia pomifera) . In this way the life of Abet Rora was spared.
Since that time Abet Rora has been setting at the sources of streams among the big rocks in the majestic ancient woods, building his house in an upside-down manner by means of the wiry roots of the boltotu tree(mallous roxburghianus) and the hanging stems of the samnatik cane(ormusia robusta). He has still in his possession the strong olive-green rope of malady, Beware.
