The Battle Of The Great Bath

  1. 1.  In the land of Mohenjo-Daro, there was a very large bath. It was said to be enchanted by the great priest himself. This priest was the eldest man in the village and was said to have special powers that no one else had. The rumors said that he was given the power of healing.
  2. 2.  Despite the rumors, everyone still looked up to the priest and every day people would go to the bath to cleanse themselves and to relax. One day a newcomer came into town because he had heard of the mystical power of the baths.
  3. 3.  This traveler’s name was Muhammad. Muhammad has brought with him three sick people, who had had their ailments for a longtime now. Muhammad had promised them that they would be healed with the mystical power of the baths.
  4. 4.  After bathing in the bath, the three sick people were finally cured of their ailments. They then left, and spread the story of their healing across the land, and soon there were hundreds of other people flowing into Mohenjo-Daro.
  5. 5.  The priest was beginning to get fed up with all of the new visitors, and restricted the use of the baths for only the people of Mohenjo-Daro. This created a great outrage, and the people who had traveled far to seek out the healing powers of the baths begged the priest to let them bathe in it.
  6. 6.  Standing firm in his decision, the priest began to kill those people who did not leave the bathes when asked to. The peaceful land of Mohenjo-Daro was now a site of a great battle. The priest and his people against the outsiders. Everyone fought with all that they had.
  7. 7.  The people of Mohenjo-Daro fought and fought and fought, and in the end of all of the slaughter came out victorious. The priest had come out victorious. They had won! The priest then retreated to his quarters for he was tired from the battle. When the people returned to the bath, something was different.
  8. 8.  The bath, instead of having crystal clear water in it, had a crimson substance in it…. It was blood! And on the surface floating was the priest with a knife in his back. The people looked around for the killer, but found no one. It seemed that the killer had run away.
  9. 9.  After the bloody water had been drained, the people felt that it would not be right for anyone to use the bath again. From that point in time forward, the great bath of Mohenjo-Daro was never to be used again.
