(ନିମ୍ନ ବିଷୟଟିକୁ ନୀରବରେ ପଢ଼ ଏବଂ ନିମ୍ନ ପ୍ରଶ୍ନଗୁଡିକର ଉତ୍ତର ଦିଅ ।)
There lived a poor fisherman with his wife and children in a hut near the sea. Everyday he used to go to the sea and catch fish. ’
One day, as usual, he went to the sea. He threw his net into the sea, and when he pulled it out, he felt it very heavy. But there was no fish in it. He saw a log of wood in the net. He felt sad. He threw the net for the second time. This time he got a few shells and big stones. When he tried it for the third time, he found it heavier. This time too he did not see any fish in it but a big brass jar with a lid.
Taking the jar out of the net, he opened it. A lot of smoke came out of it. Suddenly a jinni appeared in the smoke. On seeing the jinni, he screamed. “I’ll kill you now” shouted the jinni.
“Why ?” asked the fisherman and said, “I haven’t done you any harm. Please don’t kill me.”
“I was in the jar. I was not free. Now I am free. I will kill you and eat you up” said the jinni. The fisherman was afraid of the jinni. He did not know what to do. Suddenly he got a clever idea and said, “Alright, you can kill me but I don’t believe what you say. You are very big. How could you come out of this jar ?”
The jinni got angry. “How dare you say I cannot come out of this jar ? I can take any form. I can take the form of an elephant or become even a small ant,” said the jinni.
“Is it so ? Can you become an ant ?” said the fisherman cleverly.
“Surely,” said the jinni and immediately took the form of an ant and got into the jar again. The fisherman immediately shut the jar tight and said with a grin, “Now I believe your story, my friend, you cannot come out any more and kill me ?” Then he threw the jar into the sea and returned home happily.

ଭୂତ ରାଗିଗଲା । ସେ କହିଲା, ‘ତୁମର କିପରି କହିବାକୁ ସାହସ ହେଲା ଯେ ମୁଁ ଏହି (ଛୋଟ) ଜାର୍ ଭିତରୁ ବାହାରକୁ ଆସିପାରି ନଥା’ନ୍ତି। ମୁଁ ଯେକୌଣସି ଆକାର ପ୍ରକାରର ହୋଇପାରେ । ମୁଁ ଗୋଟେ ହାତୀ ଆକୃତିର ହୋଇପାରେ ଏବଂ ଏପରିକି ଗୋଟେ ଛୋଟ ପିମ୍ପୁଡ଼ି ଆକାରର ମଧ୍ୟ ହୋଇପାରେ ।’’
କେଉଟ ବଡ଼ ଚାଲାକିରେ କହିଲା, ‘ଏହା କ’ଣ ତାହାହେଲେ ସେଇଆ ? ତୁମେ ଗୋଟେ ପିମ୍ପୁଡ଼ି ବି ହୋଇପାରିବ ?’’
ଭୂତ କହିଲା, ‘ନିଶ୍ଚୟ’ ଏବଂ ତତ୍କ୍ଷଣାତ୍ ଗୋଟିଏ ପିମ୍ପୁଡ଼ିର ଆକାର ଧାରଣ କରି ଜାର୍ ମଧ୍ୟକୁ ପୁନର୍ବାର ପ୍ରବେଶ କଲା । କେଉଟ ତତ୍କ୍ଷଣାତ୍ ଜାର ଠିପିଟିକୁ ଜୋର୍ରେ ବନ୍ଦ କରିଦେଲା ଏବଂ ଅଳ୍ପ ହସିକରି କହିଲା, ‘ବର୍ତ୍ତମାନ ମୁଁ ତୁମ କାହାଣୀକୁ ବିଶ୍ୱାସ କଲି, ହେ ବନ୍ଧୁ । ତୁମେ ଆଉ କେବେ ପଦାକୁ ଆସିପାରିବ ନାହିଁ କି ମୋତେ ମାରି ପାରିବ ନାହିଁ ।’’ ତା’ପରେ ସେ ଜାର୍ଟିକୁ ସମୁଦ୍ର ମଧକୁ ଫୋପାଡ଼ି ଦେଲା ଏବଂ ମନଖୁସିରେ ଘରକୁ ଫେରିଲା ।
