The Champa tree started growing up.
The eldest brother came and called,” O my wife! Please come down.”
Champa tree grew in height far more.
Second brother called,’” O my Bhabhi (elder brother’s wife)! Please come down.”
The height of Champa tree increased as per Sundari’s call.
Like that all brothers except youngest one called Sunadri,” O Bhabhi! Please come down from the tree.”

                  It was the period when Sun and Moon were passing human life on the earth. Sun and Moon were brother and sister whose parents expired in their early age. Sun and Moon were passing life with severe adversity. Every time, they had to take grains on loan. A few villagers used to help them too.
           Once, both Sun and Moon were hungry for a couple of days. They could not get grains from anywhere. There was Grahan a money lender in the village.  Grahan used to charge interest more than other money lenders.  On that day, when Sun and Moon could not get grains from any source, they went to Grahan for loan. Grahan loaned them a kilo of Finger Millet flour (Chuna ku Ata). They brought flour and made bread and then only could satisfy their hunger.
             Sun and Moon used to help people. Both sister and brother could not return back flour to Grahan. Grahan used to harass them.
  In their birth, Sun and Moon started shining in the sky. On new moon night, Grahan shows cow bone to Sun and asked,” La Myar Chun ser – return my finger miller flour.” On full moon night, Grahan shows cow bone to Moon and ask her to return finger millet flour.
        By watching cow bone and fear of Grahan, Sun hides himself on new moon night and moon hides on the full moon night. Due to hiding Sun, there is new moon day eclipse and by hiding by moon, there is full moon eclipse.

           Long back, there was a Brahmin and his wife Ahilya. The Brahmin used to earn his living by performing religious rituals for his Jajman. The Brahmin was simple person. However, Ahilya had a problem. If she was asked to go right she would visit left. If Pundit would tell her to sleep she would wake. The Brahmin was always upset by his wife behavior. They had five year old son.
                   There was Chudakarm Sanskar of their son after a couple of days. On the day Chudakarma, the first hair cut of child is completed. The Brahmin was a worried man. He thought and decided a trick.
      He told to his wife that we would not perform Chudakarma ritual. His wife told they would definitely perform Chudakarma Sanskar of their son.
  Pundits were called to perform Chudakarma Sanskar. Before Pundits came the Brahmin told his wife not to respect Pundits and guests and not to serve them. Ahilya did just the opposite. Brahmin told her to do jus opposite of the real requirement and in this way, Ahilya performed the correct manners.
                By this way, every act was performed smooth. The Chudkarma ritual was over, guests and Pundit had gone. Now, there was only one job was left. The custom was that the cut hair of child should be placed under the small spring of the village. Brahmin told his wife to put cut hair of their son under any nearby small spring of village.
                Ahilya did just the opposite and threw auspicious hair where the villagers used to do toileting.
          When Brahmin came to know that his wife threw auspicious hair at very inauspicious place. The Brahmin became furious on his wife behavior. He cursed her and she became stone.
           .

 Gyana ar Binjara: Garhwali Folk Story for Branding 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- 45

          Usually, in Garhwal the names of crop fields or farming fields are based on the characteristics of the farm place and not on the basis of personal name. For example where ‘Laya’ is grown called ‘Layad’, ‘Banjan’ means the place where Oak (banj) forest is there, ‘Chaudi’ means the field are long and wide, ‘twal’ means the land is with lime etc.
         Below in south of village Jaspur, Malla Dhangu (Pauri Garhwal), there is a place called ‘Gyana’ and in the east a place called Binjara. This author asked his elder uncle late Shri Murlidhar Kukreti about name of place (farming field) based on personal name. 
              My uncle told me the following story for such variation.
    There was Gorkhyani or Gorakha (Nepal) rule over Garhwal more than a decade. Gorakha rulers and government servants were the cruelest most in our history. The soldiers used to burn the standing crops or used to plough standing crops. To kill a human being on petty mistakes was a common system in Gorkha rule. Gorkhyani or Gorakha rule is remembered with fear due to their aggressive, oppressive ways of ruling.
              Ghansali was the military base of Gorkha soldiers and administrators for Dhangu, Udaypur and Dabralsyun.  Among the Gorakha administrative officers, Gyan Singh and Binjara Singh were the cruelest. 
             When Gorakha rule came to an end, the Gorakha soldiers started running for their countries Nepal. People of Dhangu were so much terrorized by Gyan Singh and Binjara that people wanted to kill them. People started following Gyana and Binjara to kill both of them. Gyana ran and was caught in the southern territory of Jaspur village. People killed him there. Binjara was caught in the east of Jaspur in Gweel territory.
          Now, where Gyan Singh was killed is called Gyana and where Binjara Singh was killed is called as Binjara’.

             There were seven brothers whose parents die early. They had thick affection among themselves. They always believed and acted upon equal distribution.
           One day, they were grazing cattle in the forest. Their youngest brother was far away and was playing flute and six brothers were together.
  One brother found a sesame seed. He handed over sesame seed to his eldest brother. Elder brother divided sesame seed among all equally but forgot youngest brother. When all ate sesame seed portion, they came to know that they forgot to give seed portion to youngest one. They all felt sorry for their forgetting their brother.
  They all seven brothers went to a village and married their youngest brother as they could not give portion to him. 
   The moral of the folk story is that there should be equal distribution of materials or welath.

                On that time, the bride family had more say than groom family in marriage procession and practice.
          In one engagement, the father of would be bride put a condition before father of groom, “The condition is  that there would be twenty five guests and the maximum age of each guest including music instrument players should not exceed more than twenty five.”
          The father of groom was shocked to know the condition. The girl was beautiful and her father was rich man. The groom’s father did not want to lose the bride. However, the father of groom accepted the condition that the age of each guest will not be over twenty five in the marriage party.
             When groom’s father reached his village he rushed to an old and most knowledgeable person of the village Jogi Ji. Jogi Ji heard the condition of bride’s father and told,” Don’t worry. I shall tell you the trick the  day before marriage procession.”
               Jogi Ji made a wooden box from carpenter. The box was made of two horizontal partitions. There were holes on the base of the wooden box.
  Before marriage procession for bride village from bride house started, Jogi Ji sat into the lower partition of box and on upper portion there were filled with dress as objects (Bardali)  for the bride.  The age of each guest was below twenty five.
        Barat or marriage procession reached to bride village after evening. There was marvelous welcome for the guests.  After breakfast, the bride’s father told to young marriage guests that the marriage is possible only when all twenty five guests consume twenty five goats. The young guests were in great shock. It was just impossible that twenty five young men could consume twenty five goats.
One guest went near the box and told the problem to old Jogi Ji. Jogi Ji told the solution.
          Now, the guests started Pando Dance and Song surrounding camp fire on country yard. The drum players were playing drums with enthusiasm. One goat was killed and roasted on other camp fire. The roasted goat was cut into pieces, was mixed with salt and little bit chilly and meat pieces were distributed among young twenty five persons.  All young boys were dancing and eating roasted goat meat pieces. Twenty five young boys consumed the goat with ease. Then another goat was killed and roasted, and distributed among boys who were dancing too.
      This way by the morning, young boys consumed all twenty five goats without any problem.
        Watching the scenario that all goats are consumed with ease, the bride’s father addressed to all guests, “I am happy that my Samadhi (groom’s father) respects the importance of experienced person.  Definitely, there is an experienced person who suggested you the strategy to consume goats one by one and to dance too. “
            The guests asked to bride’s father,” How did you know that there is an experience person with us.”
      Bride’s father told,” You could not complete my condition without suggestion from an old man. Only experienced person knows that by dancing the boys would feel hungry. Experienced person was aware that if goat was consumed one by one at any point nobody would fill the stomach fully.”
         The young marriage guests showed the old man hiding inside box. Bride’s father was the happiest person by knowing that his daughter’s father in law believed in importance of experience.
                    Immediately bride’s father sent a messenger to call groom’s father from his village. Happily marriage took place.

Bhemata aur Ped:  Environment based Garhwali Folk Story for Quality and Procurement 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- 48

             The story is many hindered years back. There used to live childless pair and a village. The woman named Sarru used to deliver child but the children used to die within shortest period. The husband thought it was due to Bhemata (Vidhata or creator of this earth) desire. However, Sarru used to feel spry every moment.
           Recently, Sarru lost her child after sixteen days of birth. She was speaking against Bhemata or Vidhata. Suddenly Bhemata or the creator of earth appeared. Bhemata or creator of earth asked, “Sarru! Why are you unhappy?”
Sarru replied in rage,” Should I not be angry on you? You kill my children after birth.”
Bhemata told,” Definitely there must be a reason behind your children dying at early age.”
Sarru replied angrily,” No you are my enemy and you take my children at early age.”
Bhemata or creator of earth told,” Sarru! I shall come after a couple of days and would answer your question for death of your children dying early age.”
  One day in morning Sarru went to pluck Maize corn to maize field. Without any thought she was plucking corns and putting them into basket.
 Bhemata or earth creator appeared and asked,” Sarru! What are you doing?”
Agitating Sarru replied,” Can’t you see that I am plucking Maize Corns.” Sarru displayed all corns before Bhemata by tilting the basket.
Bhemata picked one corn unfolding the corn she told,” Well this corn is ripped.”
Bhemata picked up another corn, unfolded the corn and said,” Sarru! This corn is totally unripe and even milk is not there in the seeds.”
Sarru was furious and replied, “I Do you suggest that I should see each and every corn and then only pluck the corn? I don’t have time to check which corn is ripped and which is not ripe.”
 Bhemata answered,” You can pluck unripe but I can’t take life of child at early age?”
 Sarru said sorry and took the vow not to pluck unripe fruits.
She delivered a child and at that time the child lived for longer than past but died at the age of four month.
Sarru again blamed Bhemata for death of child. Bhemata appeared and said,” I shall answer your queries at proper time.”
 One day, Sarru went to jungle to cut wood and grass. She was cutting young plants of oak and pine for wood.
Bhemata appeared and asked, “Sarru! What are you doing?”
Sarru realized that she was cutting young shoot of pine and oak for her petty purpose.
She said,” I am sorry Bhemata. I shall never cut young shoots of pine or any tree.”
From that day, Sarru never cut young shoots.
Sarru delivered seven sons and they got full life till hundred years because now Sarru never cut young trees.

Kafal Pako Min ni Chakho: A Garhwali Folk Story for Chief Executive Officers (CEO)

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- 49   

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


      In spring, we used to hear the twittering of birds. It is said that one bird used to tweet,” Kaful Paku Min ni Chakho.” The second bird would replies” Sautak Putu Puru Chhayo.”
 The folk story around the tweeting of these birds is as follows.
          There was a boy Radhu. Radhu’s mother died in early age. He had step mother called Binya who looked after him. Binya never thought he was her step son and looked after as if her own son. However, Binya had affection for her parental family than her husband and Radhu.   Binya used to send gifts to her parental family in every festival.
         It was middle of Jeth (summer /May) month. The sweet and tasty Kafal or Kaful (berry type, Myrica esculanta) tree were bloomed by red, ripped Kafal fruits. Binya wanted to send Kafal fruits to her parental family where Kafal were not found.
               Kafal or Kaful fruit has specific characteristics. The nut is large than pulp area. It is better to pluck Kafal before noon as after the afternoon usually, there is less pulp on fruits due to dehydration of some water.
         One day, in early morning, Binya took Radhu to forest for plucking Kafal fruits from high Kaful trees. They collected Kafal fruits (berry) and filled five six covered baskets (Kandi)  by ripe Kafal fruits. Binya was pleased to see baskets full of red Kafal fruits.
      She took four baskets (Kandi) and gave two to her step Son Radhu.  Binya came to her house before Radhu as Radhu became busy to play with his village fellows. He kept Covered Baskets (Kandi) on open with full of sun and was playing.
 Later on after hours, Radhu reached to home. His step mother checked Kandi of Kafal and found that the volume was less. In fact, due to dehydration the volume of Kafal fruits was lowered. She asked Radhu, “You took Kafal?”
Radhu replied,” I did not taste or consumed Kafal.”
Binya put those Kafal Kandi inside the room. Due to shadow, now, Kafal fruits came into original shape.
            Binya was not satisfied. She tied Radhu on a Geenthi tree under bright sun. Radhu died due to dehydration and thirst.
 In the evening, Radhu died and Binya found that Kafal came to original position and both the Kandi (baskets) were full of Kafal.   
  She felt very sorry and due to repent, she also died immediately.
 They both became birds in other life.
Now Radhu bird says,” Kaful Paku Min ni Chakhu or- Kafal were ripe but I did not consume.”
In reply, Binya bird says,” Sautak Putu Puru Chhayo or -Yes my step son! The Kafal were full.”
 So before acting upon any decision, everybody should find the reality. Never take decision in haste!

             When Ghosts Built Contour Farming Fields of Kimkhand

                     (Garhwali Folk Tales from Gangasalan Series)
Garhwali Folk Tales, Fables, Traditional stories, Community Narratives -50
         Narrated by Udaya Ram Sharma (Barsudi, Walla Langur)
       Edited by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)

                         There are hundreds of community stores in Garhwal. It looks that these community stories are full of imagination and untruthful. However, these community stories are having links for historical perspectives. For example, the following Dobariyal community story is from Kimkhand but tell the history of partition of Dobariyals from original village Rajkil too. Dobariyals of village Rajkil are chief priest of famous Bhairon Gadhi temple or Langur Gadhi temple Pauri Garhwal. 
             The story is about famous Tantrik and Mantrik Guru Dayal Dobariyal of Kimkhand. It is said that Guru Dayal Dobariyal was so famous in Mantra and Tantra that by seeing the face he would tell the facts of illness or future of the person. In his young age he became famous Mantrik and Tantrik. In his young age he used to live in Rajkil.  His cousins were envied by his power of command over Mantra and Tantra.
          There was infighting among joint family members of Guru Dayal Dobarilyal in Rajkil. It was decided that family of Guru Dobariyal would settle in nearby forest region of Kimkhand. Guru Dayal’s father said to his elder brother,” Brother! How can I settle there in Kimkhand forest? There is no farming field as are in Rajkil”
          Guru Dayal’s cousin remarked sarcastically,” Uncle! You should not worry. Guru Dayal is very powerful on his Mantra and Tantra. He would dig forest and built contour farming fields (to make plains) in Kimkhand area.”  Guru Dayal and his father understood the sarcastic view.
         Guru Dayal accepted the challenges. It was decided that on next full moon day, Guru Dayal’s family would settle in Kimkhand.
  There were left only seventeen days to make plains in Kimkhand region. Guru Dayal went to pray in Bhairav Mandir.
            Guru Dayal went to Kimkhand jungle on Amavasya (new moon night). There he performed his Tantrik and Mantrik performances. Guru Dayal called his slaves Ghosts by Manta. His entire slave Ghosts came there and asked Guru Dayal,” O our Master! Tell us what can we do for you?”
 Guru Dayal ordered his slave Ghosts to make plains in that forest land and build four contour fields.
  For whole night, Ghosts cut trees and dug the land, built walls dividing one filed to other upper field and by morning four contour fields were made by Ghosts. Guru Dayal ordered his slave Ghosts to hide the farming field by pine and oak leaves. Ghosts followed the order of Guru Dayal. 
 Every night, Guru Dayal used to come to Kimkhand forest and used to supervise Ghosts making plains of Kimkhand forest. After finishing works, Ghosts used to hide the ready fields by leaves.
Nobody in Rajkil knew what happened in Kimkhand forest.
 On full moon day, all villagers of Rajkil came to Kimkhand to settle Guru Dayal family there and were shocked that fifty- sixty plain contour fields were ready in Kimkhand area. Cousins of Guru Dayal felt sorry and bowed down before Guru Dayal Dobariyal.
 This is the story of partition of Kimkhand village from Rajkil village.
