Peter Both

Moka , Mauritius

Once on the island of Mauritius there was a boy named Santaka . He was a milkman. One day when he was walking to a house it started to rain. So he took shelter behind a rock. He eventually fell asleep.

He woke up to a singing sound. He opened his eyes to find fairies singing and dancing. The leader of the fairies said "you are the special one to see us you shall not tell anyone about this or you will be turned to stone ". But Santaka didn't listen to the fairy and the next day he went to the top of a mountain named Peter Both and told every one about what he saw and at that instant he turned to stone.

It is said that if you look from a far distance at the mountain you will see a big rock which is Santakas head. So the moral of the story is to keep your promise.

I've heard the same story from my grandparents :) 9th July 2018
One of my best friends is from Mauritius and she is moving back there this summer, but she told me the story and it sounded different from the one here. She heard it from her family on the island. 2nd June 2017
That is wrong, I'm from Mauritius and that is definetly wrong the story has nothing to do with that and her mountain is called Pieter both because it's named after the first governer of the Dutch East Indies. 4th April 2017
