A widow lived in a village. His house was in a village in Nimar. The widow had a boy. Whose name was Shyamu. One day the widow went to the market. Then a monk came to his house. Shyamu paid great tribute to the monk. Wash their feet and make them eat. The monk was very pleased with his hospitality. He asked Shyamu to ask for something. Shyamu said to the monk - "Teach me."
The monk taught Shyamu - "Don't go to the market without money and don't go out without a companion." Shyamu liked this education so much that he brought the hundred rupees kept in the house to the monk.
When his widowed mother returned, Shyamu told her that she had bought education for a hundred rupees. When the mother listened to the whole thing, she was very angry at the monk that after telling him the meaningless thing, he took away the money from his son. She started calling that monk bad.
Shyamu did not like this behavior of his mother and left home and took some money.
When he got out of the house, he remembered the education of the monk that do not leave without companions. He saw a crab in front of him. He picked it up and kept it in his pocket.
When he got tired of walking, he sat under a tree. He kept the crab aside. A crow lived on that tree and under the tree was a snake in the burrow. Both of them had friendship. Whenever a crow stops under a tree, a crow starts to speak, and listening to his voice, the snake comes out of its burrow and bites the man who has stayed outside.
When the crow saw Shyamu sleeping under the tree, he started speaking and the snake came out and bothered Shyamu. Shyamu died. Then crows came down to scrape his flesh and sat on the dead boy's head. The crab caught the crow from behind. The crow called out to the snake in fear that - "Come out and make the boy alive, his friend's crab has got me in trouble." The snake came out and pulled the poison of Shyamu. The crow was incomplete. When the snake started going into the burrow, the crab also bitten it. The boy became alive and both the snake and the crow died.
Before walking, Shyamu took a crow's head and wing and snake's head and tail and kept it with him. Then he went ahead and got a job on a farm. Where he had to work very hard.
The discussion of that snake was spread all over the state. Because he bothered people. Therefore the king beat the drum, that whoever would give the head of that man-eating snake. The king will marry his daughter to his.
A man heard the king's proclamation. He saw the body of a snake lying under a tree. He killed the dead snake and picked it up and took it to the king. The king asked - "Where are head and tail of snake, then he said that the head and tail were badly crushed in killing the snake."
Then Shyamu came to the king and he gave the snake's head and tail and said, "I am the real man who killed the snake." After this, he narrated the whole incident. The king matched the snake's body with its head and tail. He was convinced that he had actually killed the snake.
He married the princess to Shyamu.
Even after marriage, Shyamu used to reach work on time as per rules. And used to work hard. The King was very happy with Shyamu's hard work and honesty. He gave him a palace to live in and made him his advisor.
Shyamu also called his mother from the village. Shyamu's mother understood that the education given by the monk in rupees was not in vain. Now she was thanking her mind and heart.
