                  The summer came and then would come rainy season. That means the time came to keep cowherd on the open field in night. That means the time came to make Pall* (camping plates) for Goth. The villagers wanted to make Pall for Goth. The villagers requested their village chief to make Pall. The village chief came and told that since it is very sunny day villagers should make Pall inside the room. As per advice of village chief, the villagers made two Pall and one Nakpaluni. When Pall and Nakpaluni was made the villagers could not take out Pall and Nakpaluni from the room. Villagers called the village chief for advice to get out the Pall and Nakpaluni.The village chief inspected the situation very seriously. The village chief advised the villagers first break the hose and then take out Pall and Nakpaluni. The villagers followed the chief and broke the hose to take out Pall from the room.

(*Pall- Pall is a flat square plate about 5’x3’ or 6.5x3’ made by bamboo sticks and woven by Malu/Bauhinia Leaves, a long Grass called Babul, Nakpaluni is smaller Pall)

                 Once upon a time, a fox made a swing rope with copperplate seat. The fax started swinging though that copper swing rope. When fox was swinging a bear came in the scene. The bear asked the fox,” O Fox! You are swinging with pleasure. Let me also swing on the swing rope.”
      The fox answered,” Dear Bear brother! You are heavy animal. By your weight the swing rope would break the swing rope.”
        The fox told,” Let us make the swing rope from paddy straw.”
  They went to the village and they brought the paddy straw.  The fox made big swing rope from paddy straw rope for bear. The bear started swinging and fox started swing through their own swinging ropes.

           Once, a demon was following deity Nirankar to kill the deity. Wherever, deity Nirankar hid the demon would find him. Deity Nirankar was running here and there.

            Deity Nirankar reached on the field of Pindalu (Arbi, Elephant Ear Yam or Colocasia). Nirankar hid under the big leaves of Colocasia. The storm was blowing with speed and the Colocasia leaves started blowing here and there. The demon saw Nirankar. Nirankar had to flee from Colocasia field. Nirankar was unhappy with Colocasia. Nirankar cursed Colocasia that the taste of Elephant Ear Yam would be irritating when eaten raw or very hot.
         Nirankar ran to Banana garden and took shelter under banana plants. The demon could see Nirankar under banana tree. Nirankar had to flee from banana garden and he cursed that banana plant would give fruits only once in life. That is why fruits come only once in life of a banana plant.
      Nirankar was running and he entered on the turmeric field and hid there. Demon could not find Nirankar and frustratingly demon went from the scene. Nirankar blessed to turmeric that whenever there is auspicious time always first the turmeric would be used. From that day, turmeric is used in every auspicious ritual.

Dubal Khudwa:  A Garhwali, Asian Folk Tale for Top Manager and Higher Management

Garhwali Folk Tales, Fables, Traditional stories, Community Narratives for Effective Managers, Effective executives, Effective Boss, Effective Supervisors or Stories for Effective management, management Lesson from Garhwali Folk Literature from Garhwal, part- 33   

       Translated by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)

  There was a King. The King had seven daughters. One day, the King called his eldest daughter and asked her,” On whose luck will you live and earn?”
          The eldest daughter answered, “It is your luck that I would live and earn.”
     One by one he asked the same question to his other five daughters. All answered same way that their livelihood depended on King’s luck.
At last, the King asked his youngest daughter the same question. The youngest daughter answered,” My livelihood would depend on my luck,”
The King became very angry. His body was shivering by anger. Due to anger, his eyes were coming out of eye hole.
         Immediately, he called a Dubal Khudwa (who uproots creeping grass in the garden) and married his youngest daughter with Dubal Khudwa. Dubal Khudwa used to take grass and used to sell in market for his livelihood.
      One day, the Dubal Khudwa went to market for selling the grass. There he collected small pieces of different clothes from a tailor and came to home. He asked his wife (princess) to sew those small pieces to make a bed sheet. She sewed those pieces and made a beautiful colorful sheet.
           Next day, Dubal Khudwa went to bazaar to sell the sheet. Dubal Khudwa was showing his sheet to people that the King reached there. The King liked the bed sheet. He did not recognize his son in law. He asked the price of sheet to Dubal Khudwa. Dubal Khudwa replied that he would ask the price of sheet. The king told Dubal Khudwa to ask the price of sheet and should come to his palace tomorrow.
           Next day, Dubal Khudwa reached to palace and told that his wife wanted half of the King palace and the visit of King to his house for meal in return of sheet. The King agreed and half of his palace was handed over to Dubal Khudwa.
       As per promise, the King visited to the palace of Dubal Khudwa for meal.
               The daughter cooked varieties of food. The king sat on a stool for the meal. Servants started serving the meal. The King tasted vegetable that was without salt. He tasted all thirty six vegetables and all were salt less. He took sweet pudding) Kheer0 and stud away from kitchen.
               Now, the daughter took twenty inside parts of lemon. She colored each lemon inside fruit endocarp part. Those were looking marvelous. The servants served the colored lemon fruit parts to the King. The King tasted first part and found it was too sour. He tasted seven parts and all were sour.  The King became angry and told to Dubal Khudwa,” have you called me to be insulted? You would be hanged tomorrow.”
    Now, his daughter came out behind the curtain. She saluted her father and told,” Father! You could not eat salt fewer vegetables. You also could not eat sour lemon. You married me to Dubal Khudwa but now, I am the owner of half the palace because of my luck.”
        The King understood his mistake and he awarded his half the Kingdom to his youngest daughter.

              Bitanu was small in size. Itanu was elder brother of Bitanu.  They had a she buffalo. Itanu was crook. When their parent died, Itanu said to his brother to divide the buffalo. Itanu told that the mouth side of buffalo is for Bitanu and tail side buffalo is for him. Bitanu accepted the division.
           Bitanu used to provide fodder to buffalo and Itanu used to take benefits of dung. Buffalo delivered the child.  Due to division promise, Itanu got the milk.
            One day, Bitanu took the buffalo to outside village for grazing. Buffalo had dung and Bitanu was covered by dung. Buffalo went to a crop field and ate the whole crop. The field owner killed buffalo. Barely seeds were with dung. Crow came to eat barely grains and due to disturbing dung by crow, Bitanu could come out from dung.
             Bitanu tried to search for his buffalo but buffalo was dead. Bitanu dried the skin of buffalo and went towards a forest out of village boundary. In night, Bitanu sat under a big tree. After some time, thieves came there and sat under that tree. They started to distribute the theft cash, gold, silver, gems and jewelries. Afraid of them, Bitanu shook the dried, scanty buffalo skin and that skin created a sound. Thieves thought that police had come there. They ran away leaving there cash, silver, gold, gems and jewelries. Bitanu took all the precious items and came to his room in night. He buried the wealth under the soil. Bitanu married a wise girl. Due to wise wife of Bitanu, Itanu and his wife could not make fool of Bitanu. Bitanu started living happily.

        Choli: A Garhwali Folktale for Winning Managers

Garhwali Folk Tales, Fables, Traditional stories, Community Narratives for Effective Managers, Effective executives, Effective Boss, Effective Supervisors or Stories for Effective management, management Lesson from Garhwali Folk Literature from Garhwal, part- 37   

       Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)

            There was a village. The water source was far from the village. The villagers had to take water by vessel on their head.  The villagers used to take their cattle to water source.
                 There was a widow in the village. She had two daughters. Both were different from each others. The widow had a pair of bulls. Turn by turn the daughter used to go to water source by taking bulls to water source.
        It was dry summer. Their mother was cooking sweet rice pudding (Kheer). That day was the turn of Choli to take bulls for water source. Choli was in hurry to take Kheer. She wanted to eat Kheer earlier than anybody else.
    Choli took the bulls towards water source. However, her eagerness to eat Kheer compelled her to take a sinful decision. 
  On the half way, she urinated on the bull’s feet and came back to cattle shed without taking Bulls to water source. Her mother saw that bull feet were wet.
 Choli took Kheer before her sister.
 Due to summer and thirst, by evening, both the bulls died. Bulls cursed Choli.
In next life, Choli took birth as a bird called Choli or Papiha (sparrow hawk). The sparrow hawk does not take water from land but have to depend on rain and always she cries “sarga dida pani de , pani de or O heaven give me water , give me water).

       Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)

                   Vani Vilas Dabral of Dabar (Dabralsyun, Pauri Garhwal) was a brilliant scholar of Gangasalan (south Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, India).  Vani Vilas was Sanskrit scholar from a Sanskrit scholar family. Vani Vilas was great ‘Saptah Karmkand’ Pundit of his area. His father Sada Nand Dabral was famous Sanskrit scholar and his sons Lakshmi Vilas and Parth Sarthi Dabral were also brilliant literature scholars.
                 Vani Vilas Dabral was so brilliant and logical person of his time that many stories related to Vani Vilas became as folk stories in his life time. Nobody could claim that those stories were created by folk story tellers or they were true stories. The following folk story is very famous stories related to life of Vani Vilas Dabral. 

              Untouchable Caste System is State of Mind

   Vani Vilas Dabral from Dabar was very bold and brilliant from his childhood.
   The untouchable caste system was very much alive in Dabralsyun too as in Garhwal.  The deprived class people as ironsmith, coppersmith, and goldsmith etc (Shilpkar or Harijan) were not allowed to touch upper caste people and those deprived class people were not allowed to enter into house of upper class.
        There was a flat stone (Badi Patal) on the courtyard of Vani Vilas. The deprived class (Shilpkar) people used to sit on that stone and used to have meal offered by mother of Vani Vilas. The tradition of Shilpkar eating meal offered by Vani Vilas family was going for many centuries. That stone was also called ‘Shilpakrun Patal’ or the stone of Shilpkar.
            One day, ten year old boy Vani Vilas took cooked Bhat and Dal (noon meal) on a plate and came out from his kitchen. Vani Vilas started eating Bhat –Dal on the flat stone designated for Shilpkar.
Mother of Vani Vilas saw that Vani was taking meal on Shilpkar Patal. She cried on rage.
She said,” O Vani! What the hell are you doing?”
Vani replied coolly,” I am having lunch.”
Mother told,” But you are taking meal on Shilpkar Patal.”
The ten years old boy Vani replied,” So what?”
 Mother told,” You will become Shilpkar or untouchable caste man”
Ten year old Vani replied,” Oh Mother! These Shilpkars have been taking meal offered by our forefathers on this stone for centuries and they could not become Vith (Upper caste). How come I become Shilpkar by my eating food on this stone for one day?”
 The mother of Vani Vilas was clueless to answer the logical answer from her son.

Bogsa Vidya: A Garhwali, South Asian Folk Tale for Smart Managers

Garhwali Folk Tales, Fables, Traditional stories, Community Narratives for Effective Managers, Effective executives, Effective Boss, Effective Supervisors or Stories for Effective management, management Lesson from Garhwali Folk Literature from Garhwal, part- 40   

       Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)
            The following Garhwali, South Asian for smart managers teaches that never use or share your intelligent, knowledge at wrong place.
       In Bhabhar Uttarakhand (Foothills), there is a tribal class called .Bugsa’ or ‘Bogsa’ class. In hills of Kumaon and Garhwal, the people tell a few folk stories about the specific knowledge of Bogsa Vidya or Bogsa Knowledge. It is said in upper Garhwal and Kumaon that Bogsa male knew a knowledge or Mantra that a Bogsa could transform into tiger or lion and he used to become human being after a specific time. Bogsa were not supposed to display his power as and when he wishes. Bogsa used to transform him into tiger or lion when his life or lives of society was in great danger.
   One day, a Bogsa was going to his daughter’ in law village with his daughter.  They were resting under a tree.
The daughter asked his father,” Father! Do you have Bogsa Vidya?”
Bogsa replied,” Definitely, every Bogsa knows Bogsa Vidya.”
Bogsa’s daughter requested her father to show the transformation of human being into tiger. Bogsa made her understand that it was not good to display Bogsa knowledge without an aim.
However, his daughter did not follow his advice. She insisted her father to show Bogsa Vidya.
Compelled by repeated insistences from his daughter the Bogsa became ready to show his power of transformation into tiger.
 By chanting Mantra Bogsa transformed into a tiger. As soon as converted Tiger saw a human being, the Tiger ate the human being (daughter of Bogsa). After some time, the tiger became normal human being (Bogsa). When Bogsa saw that he had eaten his own daughter he felt very sorry. By repenting, now, his daughter could not come back.
Bogsa took a vow not to use Bogsa Vidya forever.
