text: Likhi - is Tsungrangre's house - under the ground - Tsungrangre sometimes catches a man and drags him underground to his house. If he lets him go and gives him a stone and a fruit, the man will become rich. If he gives him some earth as well as a leaf & a creeper, he will become poor. Is capable of assuming different forms and causing different things - but is singular, not plural.
