Death God and Old Woman (Kala ar Budadi): A Garhwali Folktale for Effective Managers

Garhwali Folktales, Fables, Traditional stories, Community Narratives for Effective Managers, Effective executives, Effective Boss, Effective Supervisors or Stories for Effective management from Garhwal part- 15  

                         Translated by: Bhishma Kukreti

           There was an old woman. She was quite old. She used to call,” O Death God! Take me from here.”
 One day, his son decided to test her desire. On a dark night, when she was in deep sleep, her son put blanket on him including his face. Her son shook her. She woke up and asked,” Who are you?”
             Her son said in different tone,” I am death God. You used to call me to take you and now, came to take you.”
         Folding her both hand, the old woman told,” O death God! Don’t take with me. Go to another room where my son and his wife are sleeping. Take them with you.”
            That is why it is told that we love our life the most.
