handsomely. If he needed anything he could come and call her. He returned home empty handed and told the whole story to his wife. His wife called him a fool and pressed him to demand a new tub as the old tub leaked. The fisherman
went to the sea and told the fish about the wish of his wife. ‘Go back home’, replied the fish. The fisherman was happy to find his wife washing her clothes in a new water-tub. The wife was not satisfied and pressed him to ask for a new house. The fish granted the wish. The greedy wife had no satisfaction. She demanded a marble palace, silken dresses and jewels. The fish again granted him his wish. She liked to be a queen to rule over all lands and seas. She wanted
all men, animals, birds and fish to serve her as slaves. The fisherman went to the fish and told her about the wish of his wife. This time the fish didn’t speak but disappeared at once into the sea. The fisherman came back home. He was
surprised to see his wife sitting outside the old hut washing the clothes in her old leaking tub.
