Highlight hidden text for answer:

Guru Nanaks father sent him to graze the buffaloes in the pastures out side the village. He fell asleep under the shade of a tree. As the sun rose higher, the shadow moved away. A big cobra came out of its den and provided shadow with its hood over the face of the Divine Master and was seen by Rai Bular as he passed by.

 

Note:clue#2 made ref to a 'Cobra' Sports car,  a hood that hisses and gurubani ref that snakes are associated with money.- the tukk that mentions a dream where by a rope is confused for a snake, and lastly 'wassup' if you separate it , is was "sup"
