                     Lalit Keshwan wrote the religious or spiritual Garhwali drama Jai Badri Narayan’ just after the staging of his first chivalry based Garhwali drama ‘Hari Hindwan’.  Lalit Keshwan published religious or spiritual Garhwali drama ‘Jai Badri Narayan’ in 2011.
                  The one act religious or spiritual Garhwali Drama ‘Jai Badri Narayan’ is about the story of Lord Badri Narayan.  There was a demon Durdam who wanted to be immortal forever. Durdam worshipped lord Sun and gets 1000 shield. Durdam started harassing deities, goddesses, sages and saints. Lord Vishnu comes to rescue the subject and destroys the 1000 shields of Durdam. Lord Vishnu rests in Badri region and the place is now called Badri Narayan.
             Lalit Keshwan used eleven Jagars for narrating and accelerating the story. Since, the spiritual and religious drama ‘Jai Badri Narayan’ is about Lord Badri Narayan, the play is mixture of Parsi theatre style and modern style. Jagars create atmosphere of Garhwali folk feature in the religious and spiritual drama ‘Jai Badri Narayan’.
  The prose dialogues are common dialogues of mythology.   Jagars are capable of creating religious and religious atmosphere in the drama.  
  The drama is useful for knowing the story of Badri Narayan.
