According to popular belief, there were once two peasant brothers who lived in what is now known as the village of Gandimyan. After a long and exhausting day harvesting, the two brothers finished threshing their wheat and divided it into two equal piles before finally settling down to sleep. Although tired, the younger brother was unable to rest as he thought of his older brother's greater financial need. His brother was married with two children and would surely need a larger portion of the harvest in order to feed his family. Accordingly, the brother crept out of bed and took half the wheat from his own pile and added it to that of his brother. His conscience settled, he was able to sleep soundly.
Later, the older brother woke up from a fitful sleep, preoccupied with the thought of the amount of cash his younger brother would need for his forthcoming wedding. Surely he and his family could survive on less wheat to ensure his brother's future happiness. The older brother proceeded to the two piles of wheat and began adding half of his share to his brother's pile, before going back to sleep.
Bobo Dekhan, the patron saint of peasants, noted both acts of self sacrifice and decided to reward the two brothers. The next day the brothers awoke to discover a large mound of wheat, much larger than their two piles put together, which remained the same size no matter how much wheat they took from it. As a result, both brothers prospered and their residence became known as 'Gandimyan' - 'the land of wheat'.
