‘Ghar Javain’ is one of the humorous and satirical dramas of famous Garhwali playwright Lalit Mohan Thapliyal. Lalit Mohan Thapliyal wrote his four great dramas in Garhwali from 1958 to-1964. Garhwali Sangit Natak samaj New Delhi published the hilarious drama ‘Ghar Javain’ 1964. However, before its publication, the Garhwali community organizations in various cities staged this humorous and amusing drama ‘Ghar Javain’.
‘Ghar Javain’ means the bride lives in bride’s home and is settled there forever.
The story of humorous and thoughtful drama ‘Ghar Javain’ is having humor and morality too. The cunning persons of the village instigate ‘Ghar Javain’ to have alcohol and then these conning people activate the ‘Ghar Javain’ for gambling. In gambling, by shrewdness, a cunning person wins the wife of Ghar Javain’. The aim was that these crooked ones would take money ‘sinuously ‘from the wife of Ghar Javain. However, in reality, it turns just opposite and unexpected. The wife of Ghar Javain’ asks the winner of her in gambling to become Ghar Javain’. The crooked one has to become Ghar Javain and she takes all house hold hard work from the crooked one as Ghar Javain’. The crooked one runs away from the new situation.
Without preaching the playwright provides a couple of message against alcohol and gambling. In India, there is a certain image of a Ghar Javain’ and the drama writer Lalit Mohan Thapliyal cashes on the same images by showing the insulting situation of a Ghar Javain’. The humorous drama is very successful in binding audience.
