He dreamt about ending his earthly journey and getting to heaven. In the jungle, he met an old man who, having learned about the leader’s affliction, told him that there is a paradise on earth. He took the leader to the field where the heavenly plant was growing. When the leader started to chew its stem, he felt a delightful sweetness, which encouraged him to continue living. Satisfied and transformed leader ordered to plant it in the fields and so the cultivation of sugarcane began.
