One day, Kelchawngi was told by her mother to cook a pumpkin and then she went to the farm to continue her work. Kelchawngi did not hear the instruction of her mother properly. Instead of 'mai' meaning pumpkin, she heard 'nau' meaning the young baby sister. So, Kelchawngi cooked her youngest sister instead of pumpkins.
When the parents came home in the evening they asked her where her young sister was. She replied that the girl was cooked as per instructions of the mother. Filled with anger the parents blamed her for being so foolish and cruel and put her on the roof where she remained the whole night.
In the morning Kelchawngi pleaded mercy but her parents refused to let her down. At las she made a request addressed to the lord of spiritual world to send down a rope of the spirits. The rope was let down and she climbed up.
At tha abode of the spirits, she was given a dress. When she was so dressed she came back to their house roof. she was all bright with a dress which also produced some soft jingling noises. Her parents heard this and looked up.
Unexpectedly seeing her in most strange dress tehey requested her to come down. She said no to their request and told them that she simply came back to let them know of her good fortune and went back to the abode of the spirits. The parents looked on as she happily proceeded to her heavenly abode.
