Why One Grain of Rice No Longer Feeds the Village African Folklore
Once one grain of rice covered well with water and cooked afforded a good meal for several persons. At that time the Supreme God, the ruler of all, had a wife from the people.
One day her numerous relations come to visit her. She decides that one grain in the pot will not suffice for so many, therefore she puts in plenty rice.
The Supreme God sees the pot boiling, and becomes very angry and says, “One grain would have sufficed to feed all the people but since you have broken my law, hereafter, to get enough to eat, everybody must put plenty rice in the pot."
