When they saw a tiger, they ran and climbed the tree. Tiger asked them how they went up, then younger brother or sister replied, you can use an axe to climb. Tiger was very happy, and the children started to pray. ‘Father, please give us a new rope’ and new rope came down to them. By climbing the rope, the children could go to the sky. So, the tiger prayed too, and he climbed the rope to chase them. However, the tiger’s rope got disconnect, and the children reached the sky. The children became the sun and the moon.
