The Legend 

Love that lives eternally

Once upon a time, there was a young man Jhitku in a remote village of Bastar, India. During a local fair, he stumbled upon a beautiful young girl Mitki. He fell in love with her at the first sight, and Mitki felt goosebumps upon seeing him. Eventually, Jhitku sought her hand in marriage from Mitki’s family - her seven brothers. The brothers did not want to part ways with their sister after her marriage, so they insisted that Jhitku stays with them as a resident-son-in-law.

Even though it broke Jhitku’s heart to leave his village, his love for Mitki was strong that he built a house in her village. They lived happily for a few years until a severe famine struck the region, killing cattle and people alike. People of that village thus built a pond to save rainwater, a temporary and ineffective arrangement. One fine day a few Tantriks (witchdoctors) visited the village and suggested something sinister: if they immolated a person in the pond, as a sacrifice to the rain god, the pond would be able to hold water and the act would bring rain.

The question was: who should be sacrificed? The youths of the village, including Mitki’s brothers, decided to sacrifice the only outsider: Jhitku. One day Mitki’s brothers cornered Jhitku, stabbed him, and threw his body in the pond as a sacrifice. To their delight, heavy rainfall ensued that night, further establishing their beliefs. Mitki, is oblivious to the reason behind the rain. was happy for the rain but kept waiting for Jhitku that night.

When she fell asleep, she saw a strange dream where she saw Jhitku being murdered by her brothers in the rain. Instinctively, Mitki rushed to the pond only to find her nightmare come true. The pond was now full of water, filled to the brim and several feet deep. But on the surface was floating Jhitku’s lifeless body. Mitki couldn’t bear the pain of this loss and felt responsible indirectly for his death. Mitki then jumped into the pond, and minutes later was found lifeless floating on the surface. The rest of the villagers mourned the deaths of the two lovers, and ever since Jhitku-Mitki became the symbol of love and sacrifice.
