Chipadau Kood -The Lizard House A Garhwali Folktale

Garhwali Folktales for Managers from Garhwal part- 4   

                        Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

                 The tale is about ancient time. There was lizard and she was houseless. Ii was sever winter time. There was snow fall and lizard took shelter on 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 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 sun. By sun rays she felt warm. Slowly and slowly she was comfortable and she forgot building her own house. By then, night started covering the area and she climbed on the tree. Again the snow fell and lizard vowed to build the nest. It was morning on another day and lizard started taking sun rays.  The lizard forgot building nest.
              For many nights, the lizard used to take vow for building nest and every morning after sun arising she used to forget building nest.
          On a dark night, there was heavy snow fall. The cold was again unbearable. The cold was so severe that lizard died of severe cold.  Had the lizard would have built nest she would be alive.
