The text mentions an old Brahmin named Jujaka living in Kalinga. He was wandering for bagging. When he collected money he left it with one of his friends. While leaving for long, his friend spent all the money. When Jujaka came and asked his money back, they gave him their young beuatiful daughter named Amittata in stead. When Amittata was condemned by other brahmins’ wives as having old husband. She asked Jujaka to bring the children from Prince Vessantara to work for her. Jujaka was travelling out in accordance with her request.
