Why Do Kukreti not buy Land from Bahuguna in Jaspur?

(Folk Tales /Community from Garhwal Series-116)
(A Famous Community Folk Story of Kukreti from Jaspur, Gweel, Dhangu)
Collected by Bhishma Kukreti

More than 600 years old Jaspur, Malla Dhangu, Pauri Garhwal is original village of Kukreti community. Gweel village was part of Jaspur till recent past. Apart from Kukreti community there are Bahuguna, Jakhmola Negi and Shilpkar communities in Jaspur village.
No Kukreti buy land of Bahuguna community owned land. The saying is very famous about Kukreti should not buy land of Bahuguna.
There was one of great grandparents of Kukreti of Jaspur who did not have any issue. His wife was from Baguan, Dhangu. The said grandfather is related to blood line of late Bhairav Datt Kukreti of Gweel. When that great grandfather died the other brothers did not inform about death to his wife and took the deceased body to Mahadev Chatti (Ganga Bank) for funeral. Grandmother was harvesting paddy in Saud (nearby village) and when she came to know about death she took seven Kernels of seven crops and ran following Madwai (those taking dead body for funeral). She wanted to become Sati with her husband. She was granted becoming Sati (burning live with dead husband in pyre). She burnt herself with her husband. While stepping on the pyre she cursed Kukreti not to buy her land.
Jaspur people built a Math in memory of Sati grandmother.
When Kukreti brought Chait Ram Bahuguna from Tikoli and established in Jaspur for priest deeds he was offered the land of Sati grandmother. No Kukreti think to buy land from Bahuguna owned by them.
This is the truth and this the story behind Kukreti not buying land from Bahuguna.
