Long ago, a wealthy family with two sons, Sisaliao and Siaosawat respectively lived in Bharanasi kingdom. When Siaosawat reached 16 years of age, his parent decided it was time for their children to live on their own. “My dears,” said the father, “if we had two houses, you each could choose the one that you would prefer to live in. One is already built. The time has come to build the other one.” Sisaliao wanted to remain where he was, so he chose the old house. Siaosawat wanted to gain experience, so he chose to build a house for himself.
