        Collected and Edited: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)

           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.
