In the beginning of time in a forest in Asia, there was a plant which the goddess of the forest failed to give a name. Nevertheless, the plant without a name sacrificed its life to save the forest from the evil scheme of settlers.
Because of that, the plant without a name earned the honor to become palay, one of the most important grains in the world.
