BILASPUR

Kachla the sister of Bachla overheard this promise and went next day to the shrine in the guise and dress of Bachla. She received and ate the fruit. When Bachla went afterwards she found that her sister had already stolen her blessings. Bachla was, however, given another fruit half of which she ate and the other half she gave to the mare she was riding.

To Kachla was born a daughter Gugri, to Bachla a son, Gnga, and the mare in turn bad a foal. Gnga and this foal were brought up together. When Guga attained manhood he heard the fame of a beautiful maiden, and riding the horse (his foster brother) he went to woo her. For years he lived with her, being changed day by day by the sorcery of the country to a sheep, and by night resuming the form of a man.

In his absence a pretender attempted to force his claim to force an entrance to the palace. The door-keeper who had grown blind ever since Guga's departure refused him admittance disbelieving his assertion that he was Guga. The doorkeeper asserted that on Guga's return he would have received his sight. Ultimately being hard pressed, his cousin Gugri sent a letter by the hand of a brahman to Gnga, in Bangahal.
