              Now, it is less in practice in urban life that parents wish marrying their children from their angles. A few years back, it was very common in rural Garhwal or India that parents used to force their children for marrying as per parent’s choices.   It was customary that parents used to inform the boy/girl that they had been engaged.      
          Mundaro means a headache.      Garhwali drama ‘Mundaro’ (1956) written by Dr. Govind Chatak is about various tactics used by a father for his son marrying by parent’s choice and not by son’s choice. In this way, the son faces many uncomfortable situations and awkward circumstances.  The drama depicts the life style of Indian societies of sixties and is important to know the society of that time.
               The situation and dialogues create speed for the drama. The drama does not have any surprising twist.
    From knowing the social norms of past point of view, the drama is important.

Jangli Fool: A Garhwali Social Drama about Compromise and Lust

(Review of a Garhwali Drama ‘Jangli Fool’ written by Dr. Govind Chatak)
(Notes on Indian Social dramas, Himalayan Social dramas, Uttarakhandi Social dramas, Garhwali Social dramas, Hundred Years of Garhwali dramas)

                    Jangli Fool’ a social drama is one of the seven dramas from Jangli Fool’ book drama collections by Dr. Govind Chatak published in 1956 from Dehradun.
                   Jangli Fool’ a social drama is the next step of ‘Mundaro’ drama by Dr. Govind Chatak. The story is about an educated, urbanized and well settled boy Ramesh who is married to an uneducated, rural inhabitant girl due to his parent’s forceful choice. Ramesh could not go against his parent’s will. Now, the problems between husband and wife come for compromises in the areas of education, social behaviors, and life styles. Ramesh dreamt for well educated and modern life styled wife (the flowers cultivated by a gardener) but in reality the girl is as raw as ‘flower of a forest’ (‘Jangli Fool’). The girl is very beautiful and slowly Ramesh comes in compromising situation. The writer had been successful in creating a panorama for realism, lust and psychological aspects of mismatched couples.
   Dr .Anil Dabral calls the drama a classical drama and forever drama among Garhwali dramas. The dialogues and situations run together and as per characters.
