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.

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

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

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

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

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

"Where there may be flooding in the dry season. "My grandma what is it?" Said Nyi Asih pound rice is the "Where can I find the most wealthy people in this village?" Said the grandmother "Oh.

That's her home. get out before I drag! " . "thought the old woman. If hungry grandma. "Hmm." replied the grandmother. He walked over to a resident who was pounding rice. "I am the one who will give lessons on Nyi Endit. Then turn left grandmother." said the grandmother.One hot afternoon. Grandma lived to see the T-junction go straight. please you tell other people to get ready to evacuate. Meanwhile Nyai Endit are enjoying an abundant meal. "I want to ask for alms. Maybe there are leftovers I can eat. It seems like this should be immediately terminated. The beggar arrived in front of the house Nyai Endit and directly confronted by the guard. "What do I care. "I just want to know his reaction if there are beggars asking for alms. but sober. sorry for these residents. "No. "Nyi! I asked passengers. After that the old woman went Nyi Asih leaving the still dazed. grandmother's house Nyi Endit mean?" Said Nyi Mercy. What does grandma have the same need Nyi Endit?

"I came here as an answer to the prayers of the people who are miserable because of your doing! Now prepared to receive your sentence.. "Ha ha ha . "said Nyai Endit. "Hey Endit .!

" Guard-guard tried to unplug the stick the old woman. you do not succeed?" Said the grandmother. "I'll go from here if you can unplug the stick from the ground. "No need to bother me away.. but no luck. "Who would scream out. "Hitman! Unplug the stick! Beware if not plucked up. Guard-guard was trying to drag the old woman who kept yelling.
