Garhwali Folk Tales, Fables, Traditional Stories, Community Narratives -54

  Compiled and Edited by: Bhishma Kukreti (Management Training Expert)

                  Kumbh festival in Haridwar is celebrated after every twelve years. Garhwal king was o given due respect for dipping into Ganga at Kumbh festival. The custom was that after Akhada bath, Garhwal king would dip first into Ganga than other Indian Kings.
               There was Kumbh festival. Tens of Indian Kings gathered in Haridwar for dipping into holy Ganga. Garhwal King also arrived to take dip.
             Night before the dipping day, other Indian Kings decided that they would not allow Garhwal King to take bath earlier than them. Indian Kings from all over India were ready for battle as they were equipped with army and weapons.
              Garhwal king was with only his body guards in Haridwar. Garhwal King came to know the conspiracy of other kings. His tent and camp was far away from Ganga. The tents of other kings were nearer to Ganga bank.
  Garhwal King prayed all the deities and goddesses. Garhwal king said loudly, “Meri Ganga hweli ta meem ali or if Ganga is mine she would come to me.”
            Next morning the holy dipping day, everybody in Haridwar was shocked to see that Ganga changed its bank and was flowing near to tent of Garhwal King. Indian kings understood the power of devotion.
              Every Indian Kings came to camp of Garhwal King and requested pardon. Garhwal King pardoned everybody and as per custom dipped into Ganga before other kings.
