Once upon a time in the city of Lakshman puri there was a very ambitious farmer .He had a very pretty daughter called Kamala. One day the king passed near his house and saw the farmer and the girl. The king asked the farmer about the girl. To impress the king, the farmer told him, you give her paddy straw and she will spin golden thread out of it. The king who wanted lot of money was impressed and took Kamala with him to his palace. There he gave her a big heap of paddy straw and told her, “Before tomorrow, you spin this in to golden thread. He locked Kamala along with the straw in that room. Kamala who did not even know how to spin ordinary rope started crying. Suddenly a very small man came from no where and asked her, “Why are you crying?” Kamala replied, “I have to spin this paddy straw in to golden thread and I do not know how to it.” Then the small man her told her, “Suppose I do it, what will you give me?” She replied, “I will give you my necklace.” The small man agreed and within no time, he made the paddy straw in to golden thread.” Kamala gave the little man her necklace and he vanished. Next day when the king saw that Kamala has indeed done the job, he was terribly impressed.” He told her, ”Now I am going to give you 1000 heaps of paddy straw. If you make golden thread out of them, I will marry you and make you my queen. Afterwards you need not spin.” He gave her one-week time and locked her in another big room with 1000 heaps of paddy straw.
After a few years Kamala had a very pretty girl baby. Suddenly the small man came from no where and told Kamala, “You have promised me to give this baby and I am taking her.” Kamala cried a lot and caught his feet. She requested him to spare the baby. The little man then told, “I have a strange name. If you guess it right within a week, I will leave this baby with you. Everyday I will come at night and ask you my name.” He then left.
Kamala started searching for all strange names and when the little man came, told him, “Your name is Shivaramakrishna Subramayan.” The little man laughed and told, “That name is strange but it is not mine.” Next day the queen called all her police officers and asked them “ go and find out strange names”. They went round and informed the queen about strange names. One of them was Chillies singh. The queen thought that it was very strange and when the little came she told him, “Your name is Chilles Singh.” The little man laughed and told her, “It is definitely a strange name but not mine.” And went away. Like this another six days was over. The queen was terribly worried and sent all her soldiers to all parts of the country, One of them ca me back around six in the evening and told,” Madam, today I saw a strange small ma dancing, He was singing,
“Made I thread of Gold,
Got I a necklace fine.
Made I more thread of Gold,
And she promised a lot.
I am going to get a baby,
For she does not know,
That I am Shiv Narayan Gadbad.”
The queen immediately felt happy and gave the soldier lot of money. That night the little man came and she told him, “Mr.Shiv Narayan Gadbad, now I need not give you my baby.” The little man went back disappointed and Kamala led a very happy life.
