                 In public, Parashar Gaud is more famous for his first Garhwali film Jagwal. However, Parashar Gaud had been a prominent Garhwali drama personality in Delhi. Parashar Gaud was backbone of Garhwali drama world in Delhi. There is no Garhwali drama taker in Delhi after Parashar Gaud left Delhi for Canada. Parashar was true Garhwali drama activist as drama writer, as performer, as director and as producer.
    Parashar Gaud wrote an experimental Garhwali drama ‘Andolan’ based on separate Uttarakhand movement.  It seems that Parashar wrote this experimental drama as street drama or ‘Nukkad Natak’. There are numerous characters in the experimental and street drama ‘Andolan’. There are numerous plots and many sub plots in the Garhwali experimental and street drama ‘Andolan’. The experimental and street drama ‘Andolan’ deals with many important reasons for need of separate Uttarakhand state.  There are contemporary incidents as March in Delhi by movement activist, death of Veer Chandra Singh Garhwali, interview of a reporter with Chandra sing Garhwali, comments about Hemvati Nandan Bahuguna, election and election slogans, opportunist political and social leaders in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh and in Uttarakhand and many more well known incidents in this experimental and street Garhwali drama ‘Andolan’.
      Street dramas are very good means of communication for every community. There was vacuum for street dramas in Garhwali drama world. Parashar Gaud fulfils the gap by providing experimental and street drama ‘Andolan’.
       The main characteristics of a street drama are that it should have a theme for the social cause and it should be in regional language only.
              The drama ‘Andolan’ is an experimental drama for Garhwali language in the sense that it is totally non-conventional in the form and style. Parashar Gaud used the style of Jamure and Ustad style as the folk dramatists perform in the streets of in urban or rural areas.
 In an interview with this writer, Parashar gaud states that the experimental and street Garhwali drama ‘Andolan’ is tribute to experimental theatre writers Arun kakde, Richard Maxwell, Satya Dev Dube, Antonin Artaud, Rajendra Dhashmana, Carmelo Bene, Dinesh Thakur, Bertolt Brecht, Vijay Mehta, Girish Karnad, Dario Fo, Luigi Pirandello, Vijay Tendulkar, Samuel Becket,Arvind Deshpande,  Isabelle Junot , Sulbha Deshpane, Young Jeen Le, Shankar Shesh, C.P.Deshpande , Meng Jinghui ,   and other playwrights of experimental dramas.
