                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti


               This is a community story of Kukreti family of Jaspur, Malla Dhangu, Pauri Garhwal.
                      Gudud Ji was younger brother and Mani ram Ji was elder brother. Mani ram ji died in his earlier age and Mani Ram Ji took care to our forefather family. By blood Mani ram Ji our forefather but we are called Gudud Ji kaunk or decedents of Gudud Ji because he fostered our forefather’s family. Mani ram Ji was also a future teller.
             One day, Gudud Ji and Mani ram Ji were ion a hill Plato for grazing cattle.  From a short distance a marriage process of a groom passed away. The marriage party was going to bride village for groom. The drum players were playing drum with entertaining tunes and so was bagpiper player playing bagpiper. The marriage party guests were happy.
               Mani Ram Ji took a stem of Kunaj (an aromatic herb) and broke it. Mani ram Ji watched inside the stem and Mani ram Ji told his younger brother that the groom would come back without bride.
              Second day, around before noon, both the brothers were on the same place. They saw that same marriage party was coming back without bride and without playing musical instruments.
              Gudud Ji asked the guests for their not bringing bride. The guests of marriage party informed Gudud Ji that bride was pregnant before marriage.
  Gudud Ji asked his elder brother Mani Ram Ji,” Elder Brother! How did you come to know that marriage party would come without bride?”
         Mani ram Ji replied,” The future teller should have solid base to tell the future. The Future teller should not tell the future without solid base. I saw an insect inside Kunaj ku Kathuk l or I saw an insect inside the stem of Kunuj. Kunuj is aromatic herb and very rarely insect is seen inside Kunuj stem. By that incident I guessed that the bride would be pregnant and groom marriage party would come back without bride.”
 We should take care in telling future that there should be solid base for guessing the future.


 ** Late Mrs Kwanra Devi w/o of late Shri Shish Ram Kukreti of Jaspur, Pauri Garhwal narrated this story to the writer.

         Bhima and Demon: A Garhwali Folktale for Manager

    Garhwali Folktales, Fables, Traditional stories for Managers,/executives, boss, supervisors or Stories for management from Garhwal part- 10   

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

               In Garhwal, the stories of Pandavas of Mahabharata are famous. There are tens of Mahabharata epic stories those took shape of folktales. Following Garhwali traditional story is related to Mahabharata epic.
                   When Pandavas (five brothers and their mother Kunti ) were sent to forest for thirteen years they came to valley of Bhilainagar and Bhagirathi Rivers.
             Roaming from one village to another village, Pandavas came to a village and found that people of village were in terrible conditions. The people were as good as dead. They did not have any enthusiasm in life.  Nobody was replying any question from Pandavas. Everybody suggested them to go away from the village.
              Pandavas watched that all members of a family are crying very loudly. Kunti asked the reason for their heavy crying to the woman of the said family.
           The old women replied that a few months back, a demon captured the village and started killing them for his meal.  The villagers requested the demon that instead of killing all people in a lot he should eat them one by one. Now, every evening, the villagers send one young boy to demon.  The boy had to enter a Chhan (cow shed) away from village. The old woman informed that today, the turn is for her son going to demon for never returning.
            Pandavas discussed the matter themselves. Kunti told to woman that today, her son Bhima would go to demon.
         The woman did not agree for sending Bhima the son of Kunti in place of her son to demon. Kunti assured the woman that Demon could not kill her brave son Bhima at any time. After much persuasion the village woman became ready to send Bhima in place of her son as meal for Demon.
         Bhima asked villagers to carry high vessels with water, a big vessel with curd and ten Supas (chaffing instrument or shaker) to the hut or Chhan. The villagers kept huge vessels full of water, a curd vessel and ten Supas.     
          Now, villagers came to village from hut. Bhima was alone in hut waiting for Demon. As soon as dark spread after some time of evening, Demon came to hut. He called, “Hey! Human come out of hut. Now, it is time for my meal. “
 Bhima laughed loudly in the hut. The laugh of Bhima was as cloud busting. Demon called Bhima to come out of hut as he was hungry. Bhima replied,” let me cut my nails.” After some time, Bhima threw ten Supas (chaffing instrument) out. The demon was shocked to see such big nails of human beings.
            The demon again called Bhima to come out of hut. Bhima replied,” Let me cough first.” After some time Bhima threw curd out of hut. Now, Demon started feeling fear. The demon was afraid that whose cough is so much the man must be heavy and powerful
          The demon called Bhima in low voice to come out of hut. Bhima replied,” let me first urinate.” Now Bhima started throwing water out from the hut. It took hours for Bhima to throw water from big vessels.
              The Demon became afraid that the man who had such big nails, who coughs so much cough, who urinates so much big quantity that man must be stronger than him.  Due to fear, Demon started running from the hut. Bhima came out and killed the Demon easily who was under fear.
            Bhima was wise person who made the demon fearful before the Demon could see Bhima.

Pigeon Pea Plant (Gahath Ki Dali): A Garhwali Folktale for Managers


Garhwali Folktales, Fables, Traditional stories for Managers,/executives, boss, supervisors or Stories for management from Garhwal part- 11   

                         Translation by: Bhishma Kukreti

                   There was farmer in a village. He had second wife because his first wife died early. The famer had a five year old boy from his first wife. His present wife used to envy by that boy. His second wife gave ultimatum to her husband that if he do not burry his son into plough line in the field (gap or small canal happens due to plough) she would not live with him. As happened always, he was weak before his second wife. He agreed to bury his son in the field while plough.
      One day, the farmer was plough in an upper contour filed and his son was playing on lower field. The son saw pigeon pea plants. He started fencing those pigeon pea plants.  The famer took plough to through on his son for killing the son. The farmer was ready to throw plough on his son. At the same time, his son called him,” Father! These pigeon pea plants are already grown up there. Don’t uproot them.  These are already grown plants and we don’t know whether new plants would come or not from sowing the pigeon pea seeds.”
 The farmer got shock by precious words from his five year old boy.
He came home and told in straight words to his wife, “Listen cruel woman!  I shall not obey you.  I will not kill my already grown boy. Nobody knows you would give birth to child or not. For unseen future, I would never spoil my assured present.”

Churkhandarya Lata (Story of Foolish People): A Himalayan Folktale for Mangers

Garhwali Folktales, Fables, Traditional stories, Community Narratives for Effective Managers, Effective executives, Effective Boss, Effective Supervisors or Stories for Effective management from Garhwal part- 18   

                         Translated by: Bhishma Kukreti

                       This is the story of Churkhand village. Once, there were foolish villagers in the said village. One day, a person died in the village. The foolish villagers took dead body for cremation. The cremation land was at river bank.  There was thin forest in between village and cremation land. The villagers were taking dead body on the cot. They saw ripe Yellow Himalayan raspberry (Hisar, Hisalu).  They put the dead body aside on the road and started plucking yellow Himalayan raspberry. In the mean time, dissatisfied souls (Bhut) came and took the dead body with them. After taking yellow Himalayan raspberry the villagers came and found that dead body was not there.
          The villagers discussed the matter with them and came to conclusion that the dead body went to village for complaining that they (who were taking dead body) were busy in eating yellow Himalayan raspberry.
They came to the village. The villagers who were to take dead body to River bank told to remained village people that the dead body has come to home for complaining. The other villagers were depressed as they knew the dead body never returns to home.
