Transcription of a retelling of Suumphaai le Raangleen paomin (the Story of Suumphaai and Raangleen), as narrated by Shangchrek Tholung. Ranglen's wife hates his sister Sumphai, and orders him to sell her. Sumphai asks that she sell him to be a slave in a rich village. Ranglen ends up selling her in exchange for a single shaft of a rice plant. Later, Ranglen invites his sister to a feast, and she invites him to eat from what she has grown. Anticipating that his sister will not come, he instructs messengers to tell her he has died. On her way to the anticipated funeral, she is surprised to hear the sound of the Living Drum being played (rather than the Death Drum). She surmises that Ranglen has deceived her, and leaves in a huff. The origins of "Sumphai's goat" (a kind of goat) and "Sumphai's wine" (water that has accumulated in the cleft of a tree) are connected to the final episode of this tale.
