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.

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

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

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

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

"It should be checked Nyi barn! The barn is full filled with rice. "Barja" said the housekeeper Endit. "We have to wait mah! Later also will come retaliation in kind for people who like doing injustice to others. Today is the day of harvest. "I can not stand living like this. And if their rice supply runs out.!

Said a farmer to his friend. Give a lesson for anyone who defied! "Said Nyai Endit. 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. 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. but the residents had rushed to their fields.
