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.

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

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

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

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

"Said Nyai Endit. the rice fields they always produce abundant rice. While Nyai Endit always feast on lavish meals at home. "Nyi's done!" Replied the watchman named Barja.

" That grumbling the villagers over abuses Nyai Endit. . They will reap the yellowed rice and sell it to a middleman named Nyai Endit. and even some of us still keep out because it was no longer fit.. His house was luxurious. "It should be checked Nyi barn! The barn is full filled with rice. "Well ya fate when we change?" Said a farmer to his friend. How ya sir? And we also need to buy other necessities. a few weeks later. "Barja" said the housekeeper Endit.. " "Ha ha ha ha .! Soon they will run out of rice and will buy padiku.

Said Nyi Mercy. The beggar arrived in front of the house Nyai Endit and directly confronted by the guard. What does grandma have the same need Nyi Endit? " "I want to ask for alms. Later the grandmother will see a very large house. "I just want to know his reaction if there are beggars asking for alms. After that the old woman went Nyi Asih leaving the still dazed. "Hmm. Meanwhile Nyai Endit are enjoying an abundant meal. "said the grandmother. but sober. going ga given. "Hey old beggar! Get out of here! Do not let this terrace house stepped on your feet dirty!
