Loaning used Janeu to Groom: A Satirical and Preaching Folk Story from Garhwal

 (Folk Tales from Garhwal series-111)
                           Collected by Bhishma Kukreti
                 (Narrated by late Shrimati Kukari Devi Kukreti)
 This story is told in every village differently and for different purposes. The folk story is either told for showing the poverty in old time or for preaching the value of cooperation.
           Long back, there was a marriage procession of Jhampul dada in our village.  The Barat (marriage party of Groom) was going from our village to other village far away from our village. After walking the marriage party took rest in a bank of river Hinwal.
A person told to his mate,” the groom is putting my Shira (Turban and crown).”
Another person proudly said,” The groom gown is mine and my father also used that Groom Gown in his marriage”
Third person told that Rebdar Sular (Pajama) is given by him.
That way every villager was showing that he had offered something to the groom.
One person asked to Gabul dada,” O Gabul! What do you say?”
Gabul Dada answered.” You might have offered many things but I loaned  the groom my used Janeu (religious thread).”
