                       It is difficult to write historical drama or drama on well known legend. Hari Hindwan and Asha Hindwan are well known folk legends of Garhwal. There are folk songs on the chivalry of Hari Hindwan and his brother Asha Hindwan. Famous satirical Garhwali poet Lalit Keshwan wrote and published ‘Hari Hindwan’ a historical Garhwali in 1989.
                             The time period is of the ruling time of Man Shah the king of Garhwal (1591-1611). The kingdom Sirmaur, Himachal Pradesh was affected by the violent acts of demon. The king of Sirmaur declared that he will offer thousands of golden coins, half of the kingdom and his daughter ‘Sukesha’ to the killer of demon. King of Garhwal sends Hari Hindwan a bravest of braves to Sirmaur for killing the demon.
                    Hari Hindwan kills the demon. King of Sirmaur becomes selfish and instead of rewarding, put Hari Hindwan into jail. Hari through dreams sends message to his brother Asha Hindwan. Asha comes to Himachal and fought with the Sirmaur army and won. The king of Sirmaur agreed to marry Sukesha with Hari. Hari Hindwan, Asha Hindwan and Sukesha come to Garhwal where Garhwali king welcomed them.
    Keshwan experimented modernity and jagar in the drama. The drama has huge potentiality for becoming hit stage play. The dialogues are of daily uses.
