(Review of Garhwali Drama ‘Khabesh’ written by Madan Ballabh Dobhal)
Khabesh deals with three problems of rural Garhwal of before sixties- the oppression of mother in laws towards daughter in laws, migration and blind faith.
The writer used three subjects and could not be successful in impressing the audience. The drama is an average drama. There is no curiosity for the audience to wait for the future course of action in the drama.
The basic problem is that dramatist did not decide the main subject and did not provide time for developing theme. There are folk song and a Jagar in speeding up the drama.
The original typed manuscript handed over to this author by Parashar Gaud.
