Vietnam, Water and Puppets

‘Master and Slaves’, from ‘Vietnamese folk-tales. Satire and Humor’, TheGioi Publishes, 2010.

“Back from an inspection tour of his ricefields, the rich man was perspiring.
Sinking into an armchair, he ordered his servant-boy to fan him.
– Quicker! Quicker! –
he would shout from time to time, to prevent the child from slackening his peace.
A half-hour later, he heaved a sigh of wonder:
– Marvelous! No more sweat on my back!
The little boy gasped an answer:
– Master! It has moved to mine.”
