Disabled Man Preserves Vietnamís Epics in the Mountains

Thanh Nien Daily (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam) , May 6, 2007


As a child, A Luit was intrigued by the traditional Vietnamese epic stories told by his family. Now, people from around his mountainous province gather to hear the 66-year-old disabled man recount the tales.

Luit walks with crooked legs and a hunchback, but he has become a master storyteller and people travel from around Kon Tum Province to visit his home in Daktore commune to hear legendary epics of great battles between good and evil. In Luitís stories, good always prevails.

The Daktore communal government has dispatched personnel to A Luitís house to record his recited epics so that they can be preserved.
