Garhwali Folktales, Fables, Traditional stories, Community Narratives for Effective Managers, Effective executives, Effective Boss, Effective Supervisors or Stories for Effective management from Garhwal part- 18  

                         Translated by: Bhishma Kukreti

                       This is the story of Churkhand village. Once, there were foolish villagers in the said village. One day, a person died in the village. The foolish villagers took dead body for cremation. The cremation land was at river bank. There was thin forest in between village and cremation land. The villagers were taking dead body on the cot. They saw ripe Yellow Himalayan raspberry (Hisar, Hislu).  They put the dead body aside on the road and started plucking yellow Himalayan raspberry. In the mean time, dissatisfied souls (Bhut) came and took the dead body with them. After taking yellow Himalayan raspberry the villagers came and found that dead body was not there.
          The villagers discussed the matter with them and came to conclusion that the dead body went to village for complaining that they (who were taking dead body) were busy in eating yellow Himalayan raspberry.
They came to the village. The villagers who were to take dead body to River bank told to remained village people that the dead body has come to home for complaining. The other villagers were depressed as they knew the dead body never returns to home.
