Description: This a traditional story about a chain reaction of events that sets off when a frog blocks the road and sits down on an ant that in turn bites the frog. From there on, one animal suffers from being disturbed or hurt by another animal, and as a consequence accidentally disturbs or hurts another animal, and so on: the ant disturbs the frog, the frog disturbs the squirrel, the squirrel disturbs the pig, the pig disturbs the bird, the bird disturbs the elephant, the elephant kicks a rock, which then kills the daughter of the king. The king traces back the chain reaction to the frog and the ant, and punishes both of them. This folk story, in a variety of versions, appears to be very common in the extended Eastern Himalayan region. Note also that a late 19th century telling of this story can be found in the Linguistic Survey of India (Grierson 1904).
