                   There are advantages and disadvantages of Joint Family system. In a Garhwali Drama ‘Chaudandi’ (1975, Nitya Nand Maithani showed the a disadvantage of Joint family through humorous methodology. The biggest problem of gigantic joint family is that slowly family members ignore other’s emotions and problems or the family members do not care for other’s urgency.  Makan Singh has a gigantic family of fifty members. There are all six daughters, their unemployed husbands and their children of Makan Singh in the family. Makan singh has only one son Teetu and his wife in this big family of fifty members.  Teetu’s wife advised Teetu to run away from home. Teetu run away from home. Later the wife of Teetu shivers that Baba Narsingh’s spirit has come on her body. When she is asked about solution, she replies that there is ‘Pachas Sungrun Dosh (curse because of fifty boars living in house).As incarnation of Narsingh baba she says that all bores from home should be dispatched immediately.
               The drama is humorous and attacks on the family members not caring for other’s privacy or needs.   The drama ‘Chaudandi’ (1975) by Nitya Nand Maithani is hilarious one. The specialty of Nitya Nand Maithani had been that his dialogues create perfect images into the mind of audience.
