Garhwali Folktales from Garhwal part- 1

Folk Tales Collected and edited by: Bhishma Kukreti

Chhyunti or ‘Chilgoza fal’ means the pine fruit or pine cone. The pine nuts are in the pine cone or fruit.
One day, foolish villagers went to pluck Chhyunti /pine cones from pine forest. The fool villagers saw a big, huge trunked pine with full of pine cones at the steep valley bank. It was not possible to climb on the tree. They started cutting the pine tree. To stop tree falling into steep valley, few villagers tied themselves with tree by tropes.
As soon as the tree was cut, the huge tree fell down into the steep valley (Bhel) the villagers who were tied with the pine tree also fell down into valley and died there. The other villagers thought that the villagers who were tied with the tree would take all pine cones. Rest of the villagers jumped into the valley and died instantly.
