                  Chhutyan Bald’ a one act play by Nitya Nand does not have any particular relationship with culture of Garhwal. The story is weird one. Dr Dabral writes,” If the ‘Chyun’ drama is peak of stupidity or lewdness, the story of ‘Chhutyan Bald’ is weird.”
                   Chimni Devi and Falendi Lal are worried for their daughter’s marriage. Bakhtwar a young man loves or likes the daughter of Chimni Devi and Falendi Lal. However, father of Bakhtwar has other plan. Bakhtwar’s father compels Bakhtwar for marrying another girl. Bakhtwar is getting married and there is marriage procession of Bakhtwar. When the village youth come to know the reality they disturb the marriage procession by herds of bulls and force the guests to run away. The youth take Bakhtwar to the house of Chimni Devi and Falendi Lal.
                    Nitya Nand Maithani used proverbs more than any playwright could do so. The dialogues are the reason for speed into drama and dialogues are as per characters and audience’s point of view.
                      Symbolically, Nitya Nand Maithani is successful in communicating power of youth unity in any community.
