LEGENDA SITU BAGENDIT Pada zaman dahulu kala disebelah utara kota garut ada sebuah desa yang

penduduknya kebanyakan adalah petani. Karena tanah di desa itu sangat subur dan tidak pernah kekurangan air, maka sawahsawah mereka selalu menghasilkan padi yang berlimpah ruah. Namun meski begitu, para penduduk di desa itu tetap miskin kekurangan.

Hari masih sedikit gelap dan embun masih bergayut di dedaunan, namun para penduduk sudah bergegas menuju sawah mereka. Hari ini adalah hari panen. Mereka akan menuai padi yang sudah menguning dan menjualnya kepada seorang tengkulak bernama Nyai Endit.

Nyai Endit adalah orang terkaya di desa itu. Rumahnya mewah, lumbung padinya sangat luas karena harus cukup menampung padi yang dibelinya dari seluruh petani di desa itu. Ya! Seluruh petani. Dan bukan dengan sukarela para petani itu menjual hasil panennya kepada Nyai Endit.Mereka terpaksa menjual semua hasil panennya dengan harga murah kalau tidak ingin cari perkara dengan centengcenteng suruhan nyai Endit. Lalu jika pasokan padi mereka habis, mereka harus membeli dari nyai Endit dengan harga yang melambung tinggi.

“Wah kapan ya nasib kita berubah?” ujar seorang petani kepada temannya. “Tidak tahan saya hidup seperti ini. Kenapa yah, Tuhan tidak menghukum si lintah darat itu?”

“Sssst, jangan kenceng-kenceng atuh, nanti ada yang denger!” sahut temannya. “Kita mah harus sabar! Nanti juga akan datang pembalasan yang setimpal bagi orang yang suka berbuat aniaya pada orang lain. Kan Tuhan mah tidak pernah tidur!”

Sementara iru Nyai Endit sedang memeriksa lumbung padinya.

“Barja!” kata nyai Endit. “Bagaimana? Apakah semua padi sudah dibeli?” kata nyai Endit.

“Beres Nyi!” jawab centeng bernama Barja. “Boleh diperiksa lumbungnya Nyi! Lumbungnya sudah penuh diisi padi, bahkan beberapa masih kita simpan di luar karena sudah tak muat lagi.”

“Ha ha ha ha…! Sebentar lagi mereka akan kehabisan beras dan akan membeli padiku. Aku akan semakin kaya!!! Bagus! Awasi terus para petani itu, jangan sampai mereka menjual hasil panennya ke tempat lain. Beri pelajaran bagi siapa saja yang membangkang!” kata Nyai Endit.

Sepertinya hal ini harus segera diakhiri.” kata si nenek. persediaan beras kita sudah menipis. berilah kami keringanan atas beban yang kami pikul. Dia berjalan mendekati seorang penduduk yang sedang menumbuk padi. “Sudah dekat nek. Lalu nenek belok kiri. Nanti nenek akan lihat rumah yang sangat besar.” kata si nenek.” Begitulah gerutuan para penduduk desa atas kesewenang-wenangan Nyai Endit. beberapa minggu kemudian para penduduk desa mulai kehabisan bahan makanan bahkan banyak yang sudah mulai menderita kelaparan. Bagaimana nih pak? Padahal kita juga perlu membeli keperluan yang lain. maksud nenek rumah Nyi Endit?” kata Nyi Asih. Dia melewati pemukiman penduduk dengan tatapan penuh iba.” pikir si nenek. “Hmm. Nenek tinggal lurus saja sampai ketemu pertigaan. Itulah rumahnya. Sebentar lagi kita terpaksa harus membeli beras ke Nyai Endit. . “Nyi! Saya numpang tanya. “Aduh pak. Ya Tuhan. Kata tetangga sebelah harganya sekarang lima kali lipat disbanding saat kita jual dulu. Sementara Nyai Endit selalu berpesta pora dengan makanan-makanan mewah di rumahnya. “Ya nek ada apa ya?” jawab Nyi Asih yang sedang menumbuk padi tersebut “Dimanakah saya bisa menemukan orang yang paling kaya di desa ini?” tanya si nenek “Oh. kasihan para penduduk ini. dari ujung desa nampak seorang nenek yang berjalan terbungkuk-bungkuk. Suatu siang yang panas.Benar saja. Memang nenek ada perlu apa sama Nyi Endit?” “Saya mau minta sedekah. Mereka menderita hanya karena kelakuan seorang saja.

“Mana mungkin ada banjir di musim kemarau. Sudah tiga hari saya tidak makan.” bentak centeng.” kata si nenek. “Aku Cuma mau tahu reaksinya kalau ada pengemis yang minta sedekah. tapi seadanya.” “Nenek bercanda ya?” kata Nyi Asih kaget. demikian pula para centengnya. “Emangnya aku bapakmu? Kalau mau makan ya beli jangan minta! Sana.“Ah percuma saja nenek minta sama dia.” kata si nenek. ga bakalan dikasih. bawalah barang berharga milik kalian. . nenek bisa makan di rumah saya. “Apa peduliku. “Nyai Endit keluarlah! Aku mau minta sedekah. tapi tidak berhasil. “Hei pengemis tua! Cepat pergi dari sini! Jangan sampai teras rumah ini kotor terinjak kakimu!” bentak centeng. Maka dari itu segera mengungsilah.” “Aku tidak bercanda. Setelah itu si nenek pergi meniggalkan Nyi Asih yang masih bengong. Si pengemis tiba di depan rumah Nyai Endit dan langsung dihadang oleh para centeng. Nyai Endiiiit…!” teriak si nenek. cepat pergi sebelum saya seret!” Tapi si nenek tidak bergeming di tempatnya.” kata si nenek. Kalau nenek lapar. Sementara itu Nyai Endit sedang menikmati hidangan yang berlimpah. Centeng-centeng itu berusaha menyeret si nenek yang terus berteriak-teriak.” kata Nyi Asih. Karena sebentar lagi akan ada banjir besar. O ya. tolong kamu beritahu penduduk yang lain untuk siap-siap mengungsi. Mungkin ada sisa makanan yang bisa saya makan.”Aku adalah orang yang akan memberi pelajaran pada Nyi Endit. “Saya mau minta sedekah. “Tidak perlu.” jawab si nenek.

“Aku akan pergi dari sini jika kau bisa mencabut tongkatku dari tanah. “Lah. “Saya Cuma mau minta sedikit makanan karena sudah tiga hari saya tidak makan. “Ganggu orang makan saja!” “Hei…! Siapa kamu nenek tua? Kenapa berteriak-teriak di depan rumah orang?” bentak Nyai Endit. “Aku datang kesini sebagai jawaban atas doa para penduduk yang sengsara karena ulahmu! Kini bersiaplah menerima hukumanmu.“Siapa sih yang berteriak-teriak di luar. Kau kikir! Sementara penduduk desa kelaparan kau malah menghambur-hamburkan makanan” teriak si nenek berapi-api. “Tidak perlu repot-repot mengusirku.” “Dasar nenek gila.! Selama ini Tuhan memberimu rijki berlimpah tapi kau tidak bersyukur. Si nenek bukannya pergi tapi malah menancapkan tongkatnya ke tanah lalu memandang Nyai Endit dengan penuh kemarahan.” kata Nyai Endit. Ternyata tongkat itu tidak bergeming.” kata nenek. Hup hup! Masih tidak bergeming juga. Tanpa tenaga pun aku bisa!” kata Nyai Endit sombong. “Hei Endit..” ujar Nyai Endit.” “Ha ha ha … Kau mau menghukumku? Tidak salah nih? Kamu tidak lihat centeng-centengku banyak! Sekali pukul saja. .” kata Nyai Endit. Apa susahnya nyabut tongkat. kau pasti mati. Dia coba dengan dua tangan. Lalu hup! Nyai Endit mencoba mencabut tongkat itu dengan satu tangan..” kata nenek.ga makan kok minta sama aku? Tidak ada! Cepat pergi dari sini! Nanti banyak lalat nyium baumu.

namun air bah lebih cepat menenggelamkannya beserta hartanya. “Centeng! Cabut tongkat itu! Awas kalau sampai tidak tercabut. Situ artinya danau dan Bagendit berasal dari kata Endit. . Tinggal Nyai Endit yang panik melihat air yang meluap dengan deras. namun meski sudah ditarik oleh tiga orang. Beberapa orang percaya bahwa kadang-kadang kita bisa melihat lintah sebesar kasur di dasar danau. tongkat itu tetap tak bergeming.“Sialan!” kata Nyai Endit. “Ha ha ha… kalian tidak berhasil?” kata si nenek. Gaji kalian aku potong!” Centeng-centeng itu mencoba mencabut tongkat si nenek. “Endit! Inilah hukuman buatmu! Air ini adalah air mata para penduduk yang sengsara karenamu. Di desa itu kini terbentuk sebuah danau kecil yang indah. Dia berusaha berlari menyelamatkan hartanya. “Ternyata tenaga kalian tidak seberapa. Katanya itu adalah penjelmaan Nyai Endit yang tidak berhasil kabur dari jebakan air bah. tongkat itu sudah terangkat dari tanah. Orang menamakannya ‘Situ Bagendit’. Byuuuuurrr!!!! Tiba-tiba dari bekas tancapan tongkat si nenek menyembur air yang sangat deras.” Brut! Dengan sekali hentakan. Lihat aku akan mencabut tongkat ini. Kau dan seluruh hartamu akan tenggelam oleh air ini!” Setelah berkata demikian si nenek tiba-tiba menghilang entah kemana.

"Barja" said the housekeeper Endit. "Oh sir. Because land in the village is very fertile and is never short of water. O Lord. "I can not stand living like this.

Soon they will run out of rice and will buy padiku. give us relief at the expense of what we carry. the rice fields they always produce abundant rice. "Nyi's done!" Replied the watchman named Barja. His house was luxurious.THE LEGEND OF SITU BAGENDIT Once upon a time there arrowroot town just north of a village whose inhabitants were mostly farmers. "It should be checked Nyi barn! The barn is full filled with rice. Why Well. . And not by voluntary farmers were selling their crops to Nyai Endit. Nyai Endit is the richest man in the village. I will get rich! Good! Keep an eye on the farmers. the villagers began to run out of food and many were already suffering from hunger.. It was still a little dark and the dew still clings in the foliage. rice barns are very broad because it should be sufficient to accommodate all the rice bought from farmers in the village. They will reap the yellowed rice and sell it to a middleman named Nyai Endit. do not let them sell their crops to other places. do not kenceng-kenceng atuh. a few weeks later. Give a lesson for anyone who defied! "Said Nyai Endit. our rice supply is running low. God's house never sleeps! " While iru Nyai Endit was checking rice granary.Mereka forced to sell all their crops at a low price if you do not want to look for cases with a guard-watchman housekeeper Endit messenger. But even so. "We have to wait mah! Later also will come retaliation in kind for people who like doing injustice to others. Next door neighbor said the price is now five times more than the time we sell first. Today is the day of harvest. "How? Are all the rice has been purchased? "Said the housekeeper Endit. " That grumbling the villagers over abuses Nyai Endit. " "Ha ha ha ha . and even some of us still keep out because it was no longer fit. Yes! All the farmers. Soon we are forced to buy rice to Nyai Endit. they should buy from a gammer Endit prices soared. "Well ya fate when we change?" Said a farmer to his friend. the inhabitants of the village poor still lack. but the residents had rushed to their fields. Sure enough.

For three days I did not eat. from the end of the village seems a grandmother who walked bent over. "Nyi! I asked passengers. take your valuable asset. "said the grandmother. get out before I drag!

Because soon there will be a big flood." replied the grandmother. "It's close to grandma. It seems like this should be immediately terminated. "Where there may be flooding in the dry season." said the grandmother. He passed through residential areas with a look full of pity. "I am the one who will give lessons on Nyi Endit. " "She's joking yes?" Said Nyi Asih surprised. Grandma lived to see the T-junction go straight.
