Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Ubhatobhattha Jātaka:Once in a village of line-fishermen one of the men took his tackle and went with his little son to fish.A snag caught hold of his line,but the man,thinking it was a big fish,sent his son home to ask his mother to pick a quarrel with the neighbours in order to keep them occupied lest they should claim a share of his catch.When the boy had gone,the fisherman went into the water to drag the fish,but he struck against the snag and was blinded in both eyes.Moreover a robber stole his clothes from the bank and his wife was taken before the village chief and fined and beaten for quarrelling.The Bodhisatta who was a Tree-deva saw all this happen and drew a moral from it.The story was told in reference to Devadatta,who is identified with the fisherman,all his enterprises having come to grief.J.i.482-4.
