In this 377th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Fairy Tale "THE VALIANT LITTLE TAILOR”.
One day a tailor is preparing to eat some jam, but the sweet aroma of the jam attracts flies and when flies settle on it, he kills seven of them with one blow. He makes a belt describing the deed, reading "Seven at One Blow". Inspired, he sets out into the world to seek his fortune. The tailor meets a giant who assumes that "Seven at One Blow" refers to seven men. The giant challenges the tailor. When the giant squeezes water from a boulder, the tailor squeezes milk, or whey, from cheese. The giant throws a rock far into the air, and it eventually lands. The tailor counters the feat by tossing a bird that flies away into the sky; the giant believes the small bird is a "rock" which is thrown so far that it never lands. And so the Valiant Little Tailor continues his journey……
