                     Chhyunti: A Garhwali Folktale, Community Story
     

                                  Garhwali Folktales from Garhwal part- 1 

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

              Chhyunti or ‘Chilgoza fal’ means the pine fruit or pine cone. The pine nuts are in the pine cone or fruit.
                     One day, foolish villagers went to pluck Chhyunti /pine cones from the pine forest. The fool villagers saw a big, huge trunked pine full of pine cones at the steep valley bank.  It was not possible to climb on the tree. They started cutting the pine tree. To stop trees from falling into the steep valley, few villagers tied themselves with tree by tropes.
 As soon as the tree was cut, the huge tree fell down into the steep valley (Bhel) the villagers who were tied to the pine tree also fell down into a valley and died there. The other villagers thought that the villagers who were tied to the tree would take all the pine cones. The rest of the villagers jumped into the valley and died instantly.

                         Gay ki Punch aur Bhut; a Garhwali Folktale, Community Story 

                                  Garhwali Folktales from Garhwal part- 2 

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

                     Many rainy seasons back, there was a village. The villagers were happy and simple living. Once, evil souls (Bhut) started harassing the villagers at the night, Bhut used to torture villagers. Every family did ritual performances to get rid of Bhut. The Bhut was much more powerful than the power of rituals.
                The villagers went to caws to help them get ridding Bhut.
 Caws met and discussed the matter seriously. In the evening, caw spread around the village borders.
                    At the night, Bhut came to enter the village. Caw asked Bhut not to enter into village till Bhut accepts the challenge from caws. Bhut arrogantly accepted the challenge from caw.
                Caw put a condition that if Bhut could count the number of hair on their tail, Bhut could enter the village. Bhuts were  arrogant and foolish, they accepted the challenge of caws.
  Each Bhut started counting the hair of the caw tail. It was just impossible to count the hair of the caw tail. If any Bhut would count hair up to a certain extent the caw would shake her tail and Bhut would not count the hair. Every Bhut was busy counting the hair of each caw tail. However, every Bhut failed in counting hair. In the meantime it was morning and Bhut had to return.
             The same event ran for many nights but no Bhut could count the hair of the caw tail. In the end, Bhut accepted the defeat and agreed not to enter the village.
                 From that day, whenever any person is afraid of Bhut the person would catch the tail of the caw and Bhut would not touch the human.

                       Nath Ban Gaye (They accepted Nath Sect)

                                  Garhwali Folktales for Managers from Garhwal part- 3   

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

              There are tens of community stories with each caste in Garhwal. The following story is a Kukreti community story from village Jaspur, Malla Dhangu, Pauri Garhwal, North India.
                    Long back a Kukreti from South India settled in Jaspur, Pauri Garhwal, North India. Once upon a time, Kukreti of Jaspur was famous for Mantrik and Tantric (folk ritual priests). There were two brothers in the family named Jasdev Ji and Ran Dev Ji. Jas Dev Ji was elder than Ran Dev Ji.  Both had great respect and love for each other. Jas Dev Ji and Ran Dev Ji were great and famous Tantrik and Mantrik of the region. No other Mantrik and Tantrik could compete with them.
                However, after some time, Ran Dev Ji started using his Manta and Tantra knowledge for mischievous acts.  Ran Dev Ji used his Tantrik-Mantrik power to burn the standing crops. Ran Dev Ji started his Mantra-Tantra knowledge for harming people and animals. Even Ran Dev Ji burnt the forest to show his supremacy. Many times, seniors of the village and his own elder brother Jas Dev Ji made Ran Dev Ji understand to stop the harmful application of Mantra and Tantra.
               Ran Dev Ji did not pay attention to others' advice and continued indulging himself in using his Mantrik –Tantrik power in harmful deeds for human beings.
                            One day, villagers decided to exile Ran Dev Ji from Jaspur to another place.  Jaspur villagers provided land to Ran Dev Ji two miles away from Jaspur in southwest direction. Ran Dev Ji started residing in that place. Ran Dev Ji had a great love for his motherland Jaspur. Ran Dev Ji requested Jaspur fellows to provide land for his cremation in his motherland Jaspur.  Jaspur fellow granted. Repenting for his misdeeds, Ran Dev Ji accepted a sect called Dalya or Nath Sampraday. A great Dalya Guru from Gorakhnath Sect accepted Ran Dev Ji as his disciple.
                The new village of Ran Dev Ji is called Raneth. Still, after so many hundreds of years of Ran Dev Ji‘s migrating to Raneth village, the villagers bury their dead people in village Jaspur. The burial place of Dalyas of Raneth is called Dalyon-Math.  It is said that Ran Dev Ji blessed that no Bhut-Pichas or notorious, dangerous, evil soul would harm any person of Jaspur. No Jaspur villagers feel any fear of catching by Bhut-Pisach in Math area. The Jaspur children play on the stones of Samadhi of Math but they are never caught by Bhut-Pichas' the  Evil souls .
                     The villagers of the region respect Dalya of Raneth and pay to respect to them as they pay respect to Brahmin Guru.



**Late Shrimati Kwanra Devi Kukreti and her son late Shri Mohan Lal Kukreti of Jaspur narrated the story to me

                              Chipadau Kood -The Lizard House   

                  Garhwali Folktales for Managers from Garhwal part- 4   

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

                 The tale is about ancient times. There was a lizard and she was houseless. It was severe wintertime. There was snowfall and the lizard took shelter in a  hole in the tree trunk. As soon as the night was progressing the lizard was shrinking. The cold was beyond her bearing power. The lizard took a vow that in the morning she would build her own house. The lizard planned that she would collect twigs and would build a nest as birds do so.  She imagined that she had a nest and in winter she was living comfortably in her house.
       When the sun arose the lizard started taking the  Sun. By sun rays she felt warm. Slowly and slowly she was comfortable and she forgot to build her own house. By then, the night started covering the area and she climbed onto the tree. Again the snow fell and the lizard vowed to build the nest. It was morning on another day and the lizard started taking sun rays.  The lizard forgot to build a nest.
              For many nights, the lizard used to take a vow for building a nest, and every morning after the sun arose she used to forget to build a nest.
          On a dark night, there was heavy snowfall. The cold was again unbearable. The cold was so severe that the lizard died of severe cold.  Had the lizard would have built a nest she would be alive.

                Dwi Ashaband Dhibriyun Katha:  The Story of two Pregnant She Sheep:

    Garhwali Folktales/Fables/Traditional stories for Managers /executives/boss/supervisors from Garhwal part- 5   

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

         Usually, there is no name for folk stories in Garhwali. For example, this story is sometimes called by the narrator as ‘Dubasta ki Katha (story of pregnancy) and sometimes the narrator calls it ‘Naunuyalun Kun Katha’ (a story for children). Depending upon the situation, many times, the narrator changes animals from birds to foxes to monkeys, etc.
                    The Story of two Pregnant She Sheep: Garhwali Folktale for Managers

                 Long back in our village, there were two sheep in the sheep's yard.  One was Mayali Dhibari and second was Gargari Dhibari. They were Devrani and Jithani Wives of two brothers). They were sisters from their father's side and mother's side too. However, both had different characters.
               Once, they became pregnant together. Mayali Dhibari used to walk on the plain path and Gargari Dhibari never cared for plain paths. Mayali Dhibari used to think about her kid becoming a simple and sober sheep. While Gargari used to imagine that her kid would be a greater fighter. Mayali prayed from God to have the sage type of kid and Gargari asked for an agile kid. Mayali requested god to gift her an honest kid and Gargari went for the arrogant kid.
            Mayali took care in walking, sitting, standing, talking, and choosing plant leaves for eating and sleeping but Gargari never took care in any of her acts during pregnancy.
 When the time came for child delivery there was smooth delivery for Mayali Dhibari.
               However, there was a hardship for Gargari she sheep. Gargari sheep had to experience delivery pain for two days and nights. In the end, her masters had to pull the kid from her uterus. Gargari sheep died at the time of child delivery.
 The kid of Mayali was sober, simple, and likable to others. However, the kid of the Gargari was angry, notorious, and seldom had others like him.  The kid of Gargari was always ready to fight everybody.
 One day, in fierce fighting an elder sheep killed the kid of the Gangari sheep.

               Kunti ar Gandhari Prasav: Childbirth /Parturition by Kunti and Gandhari

    Garhwali Folktales/Fables/Traditional stories for Managers /executives/boss/supervisors from Garhwal part- 6   

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

                          Folktales also provide society with many precautions for various complex situations. Childbirth or Child delivery is a complex process.  Child delivery is an intense event today too.
            In old-time, in villages, there were no professional medical facilities for child delivery. The village women use to take care of all arrangements for childbirth. In Garhwal, there are sayings, proverbs, and folktales for pregnancy care and for delivering the child by women.  One of Garhwali folk sayings or folktales about child delivery care is as follows-

                     Kunti ar Gandhari Prasav: Childbirth /Parturition by Kunti and Gandhari

                   The initial part of the folk story is taken from the Mahabharata epic. Dhritarashtra was the eldest prince, Pandu was the younger prince and Vidur was the youngest prince of the Kuru dynasty Kingdom Hastinapur. Since Dhritrirashtra was blind by birth the crown was ascended to Pandu.  However, Pandu had to leave the kingdom and had to spend his life in the forest due to a sinful act. 
                 For time being Dhritrirashtra was acting like King of Kuru Kingdom. It was decided by nobles that whoever is elder from Dhritrirashtra and Pandu sons would be Kuru Hastinapur King. Gandhari was the wife of Dhritrirashtra and Kunti was the wife of Pandu.
                  Coincidently, Gandhari and Kunti conceived simultaneously or both became pregnant at the same time.  Gandhari was in Hastinapur city or the capital of Hastinapur. Kunti was with Pandu in the forest. Both Gandhari and Kunti were eager to deliver their first child earlier than other.
  In the ninth month of pregnancy of both women, both were eager to deliver a child before the other. Both Gandhari and Kunti felt parturition pain or the first phase of delivery pain at the same time though they were far from each other.
                 As soon as child delivery pain started Kunti went to a Banyan tree. She caught the aerial root of the Banyan tree and hung her there for a time to time for contraction expansion. At an appropriate time, she delivered a male child.
              In Hastinapur, as soon as Gandhari felt the first phase of child delivery pain she came out of the palace and started running after goats on the field with speed for contraction and expansion.  She ran after goats for much time. Unfortunately for Gandhari, she got a miscarriage. Gandhari delivered a clump of flesh and blood. She kept that blood-flesh clump into a pitcher. Till that time, the news came in Hastinapur that Kunti (wife of Pandu) delivered a male child. Sage Vyas came to Hastinapur and through the ritual performance, he transformed the flesh-blood mass into hundred sons and a daughter of Gandhari. Eldest was the son and his name was Duryodhan.
           Kunti took the right path of child delivery and Gandhari chose the wrong path of child delivery and Yudhistar the son of Pandu-Kunti came into this earth earlier than Duryodhan (eldest son from flesh-blood mass) the son of Dhritarashtra-Gandhari.

                                       Ganv ka Sayana: The Village Chief 

    Garhwali Folktales/Fables/Traditional stories for Managers /executives/boss/supervisors or Stories for management from Garhwal part- 7   

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

      The story is about long back years. There was a village Latu Ganv.
                 Husyaru had six she buffalos. One she buffalo had a kid. One day, the buffalo kid was thirsty and she entered her master house in search of water. She entered her mouth and head into a ‘Parya’ (a wooden vessel for churning curd). Her head was inside the ‘Parya’ and the buffalo kid was unable to take out her mouth from Parya. Buffalo kid was restless and started throwing her neck here and there to get out from ‘Parya’ but was just unsuccessful to do so. Buffalo kid started running here and there. Husyaru saw the situation that the head of the buffalo kid was inside the ‘Parya’. He asked for help from other villagers but nobody could get out the head of the buffalo kid from “Parya’.
 The villagers advised Husyaru to take the help of the village chief who was the wisest among all.
          The village chief was called to solve the problem. The village chief came and inspected the situation thoroughly and seriously. He walked around buffalo kid. The village chief ordered to cut the head of the buffalo. The head of the buffalo kid was cut by a sword and detached head from the body. However, the problem of the head being inside ‘Parya’ still existed.
              Now, the village chief ordered to cut the ‘Parya’. Immediately, a person cut wooden ‘Parya' with an ax. The head of the buffalo kid came out of ‘Parya’. Every villager cheered that the head of the buffalo kid had come out. Every villager was astounded by the wise advice of the village chief that at last head of the buffalo kid came out.
 The villagers happily, and joyfully started singing and dancing for successful work due to advice from the village chief.

Pani Suki Gyayi -Water Dried Away: a Garhwali Folktale for Managers and Management Lesson

    Garhwali Folktales, Fables, Traditional stories for Managers,/executives, boss, supervisors or Stories for management from Garhwal part- 8   

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

              Long back in Jaspur of Malla Dhangu, Pauri Garhwal, d the water source was in the main village. The Jaspur inhabitants were happy. The people used to fetch water for their needs. The people used to irrigate filed and the people of Jaspur used to produce onions and garlic from the nearby village fields. There was no need to take animals far for their thirst.   
  However, one day, the water dried away from the main village. The water source appeared one kilometer down from the village in the west direction. Now, the villagers have to go to another water source for water half a kilometer away in the east direction.
 The reason was simple, women having menstruation days. The terrible woman washed her menstruated clothes into the water source. The water god cursed and water despaired. Now, that water source is down in the west one kilometer away from Jaspur. 
We should never wash menstruated clothes in water sources.

** This story is commonly remembered in village Jaspur whenever the water scarcity and water source is discussed.
