            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.
