Banta Seudang

Long time ago in Aceh lived a just and wise king. He lived in peace with a beautiful and noble queen. The queen was having their first baby. After nine months of pregnancy, she gave birth to a handsome baby boy. The king was overwhelmed to see his future successor. The baby was then named Banta Seudang.

The king got sick when Banta was only a month. He was feverish and became blind. It was such an ordeal for the king and the queen. Many physicians had been called to cure the king. None of them succeeded. The king grew anxious that his people would be neglected. Then he authorized his reins of power to his little brother until Banta came of age.

It turned out that the king’s brother was a wicked person. Soon after he was authorized the power, he exiled the king and his family to live in a plain house far away from the palace. He did it for the sake of long life dominance. Everyday, he sent them a bamboo-tube of rice and fish and vegetables for their meals. The king’s family prosperous life turned to poverty. They relied on the brother’s handout. There were times that the brother sent nothing at all and made them starve. Even so, the king and the queen endured it. They believed that whoever sows the wind reaps the storm.

Time went by and Banta grew in sparseness. He grew up a handsome, brave, honest and respectful man. He was fully aware of the misery his family had to endure due to his uncle’s wickedness. At last, Banta did not have the heart to see his family misery, especially his blind father. He was determined to find the cure for his father.

“Father, mother, I mean to travel to find the cure for father,” said Banta. The king and the queen let go off Banta.

Several days afterwards, Banta arrived in a wood. One day, he followed a saint in a prayer. Afterwards, he told the saint that he was in his way to find the cure for his blind father. The saint suggested him take the bangkawali flower in the wood’s pond.

Banta then went to the wood mentioned by the saint. In the middle of the wood there was a beautiful garden with a clear pond and a modest hut. The hut was occupied by Mak Toyo, the garden custodian. Actually, the garden belonged to a king lived far away from the wood. The king had seven gorgeous daughters. It was said that each princess had a magic wardrobe. If it was put on, the princess could fly like a bird.

Banta then stayed with Mak Toyo. Everyday he took care of the garden. One Friday, the seven princesses took a bath in the pond. Banta was amazed by their beauty. When they were resting, Mak Toyo went to the pond and splashed the water three times. The bangkawali flower suddenly appeared.

“Mak, can I have the bangkawali flower for my father’s remedy?” asked Banta.

Mak Toyo gave the flower. Banta was so delighted. He wanted to return home immediately. But he wanted to marry one of the princesses and so he postponed his return.

On the next Friday, again, the seven princesses took a bath in the pond. When they were taking a bath, Banta stole one of their wardrobes which lain on a stone. When they intended to return to the castle, they were bewildered to find their youngest sister’s wardrobe gone. She could not return without it. Thus, she had to stay with Mak Toyo.

After living with Mak Toyo for some time, she fell in love with the kindhearted Banta, and so did Banta. They got married and after a while Banta took her and Mak Toyo to meet his parents. And of course, he brought the bangkawali flower with him.

Their arrival was overwhelmed by the king and the queen. Banta took a cup of water and soaked the bangkawali flower in it. The water was then applied to his father’s face. Suddenly, his father was able to see again.

The next day, Banta’s father came to the castle to see his little brother. He was uneasy about his older brother being able to see again. He felt guilty for abandoning the king and his family.

“Please forgive me, brother. I have abandoned you and your family. I now return the throne to you,” said the little brother.

And so Banta’s father became the king again. Banta lived happily with his parents, his wife and also Mak Toyo. Not long after, Banta was crowned king to succeed his father. He became a wise king.
