Legend of Weeping Stone

Weeping Stone

Hill far from the village, Kalimantan region lived a poor widow and a daughter.
The girl was very beautiful widow. But alas, she has a very bad attitude. She was very lazy, never helped her mother to do house chores. It works just primp every day.
In addition, lazy, spoiled girl’s attitude at all. All requests must be followed. Every time he asks something to the mother must be granted, regardless of the circumstances of the poor mother, slaving every day should be looking for a bite of rice.

On one day the girl asked her mother down to the village for shopping. The location of the village market so far, so they had to walk quite tiring. The girl was walking strolled by wearing a nice dress and primp for the street people who see it will be admiring her beauty. While her mother walked behind, carrying baskets with very dirty clothes. Because they lived a remote place, no one knows that the two women who run it is the mother and child.
When they began to enter the village, the village people watching them. They were so impressed with the beauty of the girl child, especially the rural youth who can not get enough of looking at the girl’s face. But when I saw people walking behind the girl, really contrasting circumstances. It makes one wonder.
Among those who saw it, a young man approached and asked her, “Hi, pretty girl. Is that runs behind the mother?”
However, what the girl’s answer?
“No,” she said proudly. “sHe is a servant!”
Both mother and child then went on the trip. Not how far, again a young man approached and asked the girl child.
“Hi, sweetie. Is that runs behind was your mother?”
“No, no,” replied the girl with her head tilted. “He is slave!”
That each girl met someone along the way who inquired about her mother, always answer it. Her mother is treated as a servant or slave.
At first hearing, the rebellious daughter’s answer when asked of people, the mother still can not help myself. But after repeatedly hearing the same answer and a very painful thought, finally my poor mother could not refrain. The mother prayed.
“Oh God, I can not withstand this insult. Child birth so how could I treat myself from my way. Yes, the gods punish this prodigal son! Punish her ….”
On the power of God the Almighty, the girl’s body slowly turns to stone rebellious. The change started from the foot. When the change has reached half a body, the girl begged forgiveness of his mother crying.
“Oh, mother .. mother .. please forgive me, forgive your doughter  for this perfidy. Mom … Mom … please forgive your doughter ..” The girl continued to weep and cry to her mother pleaded. However, everything has been delayed. The whole body of the girl finally turned to stone. Even a stone, but one can see that both eyes still shed tears, like she was crying. Therefore, the stone came from a girl who got her mother’s curse is called “Weeping Stone.”
