Gamcha asked Sharksta, the god of water, and Lionko, the god of land, to retrieve the ball. When they saw the two pieces, Lionko grabbed the moon, and Sharksta, the Earth. That created landforms all over the moon, and water all over the Earth. Lionko realized that his part was smaller than Sharksta’s, so he tried to grab the Earth from Sharksta’s hands. This caused landforms in some places around the water on Earth. This is how the continents and oceans were formed. This is also why people in India play cricket. It is their way of acknowledging the game of cricket that the gods played, and as a celebration for the creation of the Earth. Haskutay, was very happy with the creation of land and water on the Earth. Not only had he created the universe, but had also created a new planet, Earth. To celebrate their joy, some of the gods came together and decided give a gift to Haskutay for his achievements. They presented him with a creature they called a human. His face was that of the face of Haskutay. This was to remind the human what god looked like. At first, there was only one human. Haskutay examined the creature carefully. For some problems, he sent down new creatures to help solve them. For example, the creature didn’t have anything to hunt for pleasure, so he sent down deer. God realized that deer were too swift for the human, so he sent down flying creatures, or birds. Since the human couldn’t fly, the birds weren’t easy to hunt. So the creation of new animals continued until there were many wild animals. It became hard to keep down the chaos and the clamor that bothered the gods. Haskutay then sent down a creature called a lion, named after the god of land, to be the ruler of the land animals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
