He thought for a while and finally, came to a decision. He went from each flower to flower, observed each flower, and stood looking a sunflower for a long time. Gathering courage, he pluckled the flower. It was no more than a miracle! The flower disappeared and his wife stood there. She thanked him for saving her from a curse.
She asked him, “How did you recognize me among so many sunflowers?” He replied, “All the flowers had dew drops on their petals but dew drops were not on you because you were with me during the night. So, I was sure that the flower without dew drops is you. So, I plucked it.”
