Lohri Vrat Katha: Story of Lohri

Lohri is associated with a girl named Sundari and a warrior named Dulla Bhatti. According to the prevailing historical legend in this regard, there lived a Brahmin in the Ganjibar area who had a girl named Sundari who was very beautiful like her name. She was so beautiful that her form, youth, and beauty were being discussed in the street. Gradually, the charms of her beauty reached the king of Zanzibar. The king was fascinated by the beauty of the beauty and he decided to make the beauty of his harem beautiful.

The king of Ganjibar sent a message to Sundari's father to send his daughter to his harem, in return he would be loaded with riches. He gave many temptations to the Brahmin to send his daughter to his harem.

The poor Brahmin got scared after receiving the king's message. He did not want to send his beloved daughter to his harem. When he could not find anything, he thought of Dulla-Bhatti, a Rajput warrior living in the forest, who had become a notorious bandit but had great reverence in the hearts of the people for helping the poor and the exploited.

The Brahmin reached Dulla Bhatti the same night and told him the whole thing in detail. Dulla Bhatti, on hearing the agony of the Brahmin, consoled him and went out in search of a well-qualified Brahmin boy by night. On the same night, Dulla Bhatti, looking for a worthy Brahmin boy, considered Sundari as his own daughter, gave Agri as his witness and gave him his hands, and married Sundari with the Brahmin youth at night. At that time Dulla-Bhatti had nothing to give to daughter Sundari. Therefore, he gave Sundari's hand in the hands of a Brahmin youth by giving him sesame and sugar and sent Sundari to her in-laws.

When the King of Ganjibar came to know about this, he was furious. At the same time, he ordered his army to attack the Ganjibar area and eliminate Dulla Bhatti. As soon as the king's order was received, the army moved towards Dulla Bhatti's hideout, but Dulla-Bhatti and his companions put all their strength and severely dusted the king's army.

In Zanzibar, the people burnt bonfire and sang songs in praise of Dulla-Bhatti in the joy of the crushing defeat of the Royal Army at the hands of Dulla Bhatti. It is said that since then Sundari and Dulla Bhatti were particularly remembered in songs sung on the occasion of Lohri.
