HIGHLIGHTS

In village Majhtan of Kothi Toong lived a widow. Once she called Malechh Thakurs along with his Eighteen pairs of oxen to sow the field. During day time, widow went to take grass for those oxen and food for Thakurs. When she was ready to move with food and grass, then Devta appeared as a hermit and asked for the food.But lady refused, because she has to take food for thakurs and grass for oxen . Hermit told that only one ‘Kash’ (one palm full) of grasses for oxen and just one ‘Pibhri’ (hollow branch from between wheat and barley) of ‘Sur’ (Sura,wine), for thakurs will satisfy them. and just after returning she has to serve him food. Widown obeyed the advice. Indeed, Oxen got complete satisfaction from one palm full and Thakur too with one ‘Pibhri’ Sur. Malechh Thakurs were surprised but due to pride they were not agree to accept any power. One of them told, ‘Gain Chutlee Sire Thamle, Dhartan Footlee Hathe Dhakule’. After reaching home she served food to the hermit. The hermit told that lady to sit inside the home and he went to Thehara where he alerted Malechh Thakurs. But proudy Thakurs were not hesitated at all. Then hermit from his ‘Gaj’ hitted Dhar and by which all Thakurs were killed by coming under that. Mean while, the lady by the deving power flied to a place called Shua-Kamroo of Kinnour. Hermit meat Laxmi Narayan of Chipni who gave him a place named Faryadi Maroud. Today this is famous in the nameof Laxmi Narayan Faryadi.
