IN MUCH OF ASIA, RICE IS CONSIDERED THE EMBODIMENT OF A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN WHO DISLIKES BEING MAN-HANDLED. MEN ARE PERMITTED TO PREPARE THE LAND, BUT IT IS WOMEN WHO HAVE TO PLANT AND COOK THE RICE. AT HARVEST TIME, THE PREGNANT EARTH MOTHER IS DELIVERED.

"DEWI NAWANG SASIH "IS THE RICE GODDESS OF INDONESIA; SHE IS THE GODDESS WHO TAUGHT THE PEOPLE TO COOK RICE. LEGEND HAS IT THAT SHE TAUGHT THE WOMEN TO PUT ONE GRAIN OF RICE IN THE BOILING POT, AND IT WILL SWELL AND THEN DIVIDE AGAIN; THE POT WILL SOON BE FULL OF RICE. HER ONE RESTRICTION WAS THAT 'NO MAN SHOULD TOUCH THE UTENSILS'. THUS, THE PEOPLE OF INDONESIA WERE ABLE TO EAT VERY WELL....UNTIL....A KING WHO THOUGHT THAT HE WAS ABOVE THE LAW INTENTIONALLY TOUCHED A POT. THE GODDESS, IN DISGUST, DEPARTED FROM THE EARTH, AND SINCE THAT TIME IT TAKES A WHOLE BUNCH OF RICE TO FILL A POT BECAUSE, ALTHOUGH THE GRAINS SWELL, THEY NO LONGER DIVIDE AND REPRODUCE.
