Once upon a time in India, Trilok Nath a King lived with great pride. All his men loved him so much for his brave and courage and Witty character. He lived a great life with his wife. His state was very wealthy and people lived a happy life.
On a fine summer morning his wife gave birth to baby boy. The baby was very beautiful. Since the baby was born, he had not cried nor smiled. The palace doctor Vig Dijay Nath was very surprised to see this and told the king your son is going to be very strong in administering our state and wished the Queen and left the palace with many prizes that the king had offered him.
Four years passed by…
On a hot sunny day, the little prince went to a water falls near palace with his little friends. While enjoying the bath the little prince felt some irritation at his back and could’t continue to bath anymore and went back home. The palace doctor Vig Dijay Nath rushed to palace as per the King’s order to check his little son. After examining the little prince, the doctor said these are sore that was caused by the force of the water and gave some green grass to squeeze and put it at his back daily until it is cured.
The palace doctor said to King, there is one important thing that I should say. I’m scared you might punish me if I say so. ‘Hahaha’ laughed the King Trilok nath! Don’t worry Vig Dijay… I’ll not punish you. I respect my country men and doctors he said. With little hesitation the doctor said until this sore is cured, the prince should not bath. I’m not sure how many days it’ll take to recover. The king put his hand on doctor’s shoulder and laughed again. Shouted ‘Who is there’ few palace guards rushed in… asked them to take this doctor to Nalanda University to identify a cure that will immediately his son.
Days passed by, it’s been few weeks since the little prince bathed. His friends hesitated to come near him. The little prince went to his parents and cried for first time and said my friends are not coming near me as I haven’t bathed. Please do something so that they will play with me. The king thought for a while and passed an order to his people. The order was ‘No one in the town should bath until further notice’. Message was read out through public relation workers in all streets in town.
The king also said I’ve a spy in every house they are so loyal to me & I’ll get to know if anyone takes bath. He also deployed some guards near the water falls so that no one can bath. The town started to smell bad! As the little prince was getting recovered, people who couldn’t bare the smell called it an ‘Evil Smell’ meanwhile the King, to avoid any embarrassment among his people named his town as ‘Ganjirali’ (Meaning, Town with pleasant smell)
The turning point!
Worried by their bad smell, Rameshawardan, Sureshawardan the twin brothers who were friends of prince and sons of the palace gardener, decided to bath. They thought how to bath without making water sound so that no one can hear them bathing. An idea hit his mind when Rameshawardan was chewing some sweet! He rushed to his store room and picked one of the water pots and went to the falls to fill water, guards thought they are taking water to garden. As kids the twin brother took bath together through the water pot which didn’t make any sound. They felt very happy!
King came to know about this boys who took bath! Ordered his men to bring the kids. The brave kids said to the King that it’s a holy water and demonstrated how they took bath without making water sound. Kids said to King we pour water in this and plants grow with fresh leaves, if we take bath using this daily we will get shiny skin. The prince took the water pots and rushed to bath! As he took bath after so many days, he liked the smooth flow of water to his back which didn’t cause pain to his sore, he liked this invention by his friends very much. He thought if he take shower using this daily, his sore will be cured quickly.
Moved by this invention the little prince got some gold coins from his father and gave it to his friends to celebrate! Then he told his gather to send a notice to town saying ‘Buy Water pots, call it as Water Shower… Take bath twice a day! Let the Holy water take down the Evil Smell’..! As the little prince goes on dictating the public notice to PRO, The King saw that proudly and reminded the words of his palace doctor and asked the guards to bring the doctor back from Nalanda.
People started to use the water pots, some heated the water pots for a hot water shower & everyone lived happily!
