My eccentricity was contested by the story of Nohkalikai Falls which was mentioned in the brochure available at the entrance. The falls were breathtaking and so was the story behind it. As per the legends there lived an orphan girl named Ka Likai. She was the most loved in the village. As she reached adolescence she married the love of her life and soon got blessed with a baby girl.
But, unfortunately, her husband died a sudden death. As she had an infant to take care, so she decided to remarry. But, they hardly earned any income, hence she decided to become a porter herself where she had to leave her daughter with her second husband for a long time during the day. However, she would compensate the separation by spending rest of the time with her infant. This routine forbade her to spend time with her second husband and consequently, differences started emerging between them.
On one of the mundane days Ka Likai returned from work extremely tired and for a change, her second husband had cooked meat and rice for her. Overwhelmed, tired and hungry she binged on the food and suddenly realized that she had not yet met her daughter. She usually used to consume betel leaf after her meals. To her wreck, she saw a small severed finger in the basket where the betel leaves were kept. She realized that the finger was of her daughter's and her second husband out of jealousy had killed her daughter, cooked her meat and made Ka Likai consume it.
Having consumed her own daughter she went mad with rage, fury, and grief, swung a hatchet in her hand and ran hysterically off the edge of the plateau and jumped from the waterfall. That waterfall is thus named after Ka Likai where Noh means 'jump', hence the name Nohkalikai Falls.
