This story is about a young man who was bullied by his fellow men on the work site. These men went to the governor and told him lies of what Nikiishaan was saying. They said that Nikiishaan said that he could find the governor`s daughters, whom he had lost a long time ago. Then one day the governor asked Nikiishaan to come to his place. He said, "is it true what you said? that you can find my daughters?" Nikiishaan said "no".

"Well I think that`s what you said, so you will go and find my daughters. If you find them, I will give you everything that you need and I will also give you permission to marry one of them." So then Nikiishaan left the village.
