                    Nitya Nand Maithani a prolific Garhwali fiction writer and playwright took entertainment through drams very seriously. Many of his dramas are investigating the human tendencies, human ambitions and aspiration besides foolishness and ignorance.   
    The modern Garhwali drama ‘Chyun’ by Nitya Nand Maithani is in the form of folk story. The main character is a foolish young man Sundaru who is getting married. His would be wife saw a dream that a demon caught her seven brothers and all are in stomach of demon. The life of demon is in a special kind of mushroom (‘Chyun’) posed by parrot staying in a Dainkan tree. Sundaru goes in search of parrot and mushroom (‘Chyun’). He met a woman in the way and she tells a lie that a prince killed demon. Sundaru comes back.
                 The drama definitely attacks on blind faith, ignorance and foolishness. However, the drama is not in preaching style but story construction and dialogues tell the objectives of the drama. Nitya Nand Maithani is expert of entertaining with focused objective of communicating moral objectives of life. ‘Chyun’ drama entertains and communicates the moral too.
