ENGLISH
'Rata tu Zenlai i Moco Hini' is fable about a baby that died the day he was born. The baby was buried with a young coconut, so that according to tradition, he can drink when he feels thirsty. As he was so young, he could not drink so be cried in Makua or Lovaji Ward (languages that no long exist) so that other ghosts would help him. His ancestor ghost gave him milk, to stop him crying.
