Twelve weavers on a journey --- cross a river --- count themselves --- eleven ---all worried --- a passer-by --- produces the lost man --- How? --- The weavers thankful to him.
Once upon a time twelve attend a marriage. They had to swim across river. They thanked God, when they reached the other bank. But they wanted to count themselves before resuming their journey. Each, forgetting himself, counted eleven. So they were filled with grief and began to weep. A traveler happened to pass by. He asked them what had happened. They told him the wholes story. He laughed at their folly. He said that he could produce the missing man. Then he counted twelve by giving a stroke with his shoe to every one of them. They thanked him for his kindness and took their way to the bridegroom’s house.
