Long time ago, there was no known rice. The people lived on fruits, vegetables and the wild animals that they hunted. One day, the hunters went very far in the forest to get a good catch but they saw people that they thought were Gods and Goddesses. They paid respect and they were invited to a feast. There, they saw small kernel like beads placed in the bamboo and they thought they were worms so they refused it. However, the God told them it was called rice and they grow the crop by themselves.
