                    Kula Nand Ghansala is well famous name in Garhwali dramas, Ghansala have already written more than ten Garhwali dramas and most of them are staged.  Manikhi Bag’ (1993) by Kula Nand Ghansala was first staged in 1993 in Gopeshwar, Chamoli Garhwal.
             As the Russian drama ‘The Government Inspector’ (1836) by Nikolai Gogol; French film Ridicule; A Pakistani drama Burka Vaganza (Aju ka Theatre); South African play ‘Survival Asinamali’ ridicules white bureaucrats; Mexican theatre ridiculed politicians around 1920; ‘Manikhi Bag’ (1993) by Kula Nand Ghansala  successfully ridicules local self government  politicians, bureaucrats and society together.
             The theme is about gram Pradhan and other characters as government officials and business community apply corrupt methods for taking monitory advantages. The playwright criticizes people for their ignoring these man-eaters. The tiger is the watchman of the goats.
               The playwright Kula Nand Ghansala uses various emotions which are attracting points for the audience.  The satire and humor of drama may create laughter but ultimately compel the audience to think. The real objective of any humor or satire is to create smile and laughter but at the end compel the audience or readers to think upon the real cause.
         There are nine acts in this satirical drama .There are total twenty six characters in the drama. The story construction of satirical drama ‘Manikhi Bag’ (1993) by Kula Nand Ghansala is well within command and the events seem from the daily life. The story is accelerated by lyrics at the beginning of each act.
        The dialogues are fit for the characters, and timing of action of characters. The drama is a realistic modern drama.
              Bhishma Kukreti states that the contribution of Kula Nand Ghansala in international drama art is equal to Honore de Balzac, James Berry, Chekhov, Ibsen, and George Colman, William dean, Bernard Shaw, Sinclair for understanding the social construction and depicting it in the drama.
