                       Parashar gaur claims that ‘Aunsi ki Rat’ is first Garhwali full stage drama and this is the first Garhwali drama wherein female artists performed for the female characters too. Before, ‘Aunsi ki Rat’, male artists used to perform female characters in Garhwali dramas.
                        Initially this Garhwali drama ‘Aunsi ki Rat’ takes the subject of human rights of the untouchables. However, on later stage the drama turns taking the subject of individual fights between uncle and nephew for the small land and an untouchable woman fighting for her honor as the society spreads rumor about her relationship with her brother in law. There are selfish acts by Bith or upper caste class that the untouchables fight among themselves and can’t think about their human rights.
   The subject of untouchables was revolutionary in seventies and the drama definitely, was ‘need of the hour’.
Devu an untouchable has to fight for his rights with three fronts and dramatists could show effectively his problems for fighting with three vital fronts.
       The biggest flaw in the drama is that the writer tries to take three vital subjects of society in a single drama. This desire of writer Gaur makes the drama inconclusive for the audience.
  Devu an untouchable has to fight for his rights with three fronts and dramatists could show effectively his problems for fighting with three vital fronts.
    The dialogues are from day-to-day life of average Garhwali inhabitants of rural Garhwal. Gaur used man absurd sentences (rojmara ki Gali wale vaky) usually used in daily talk in Garhwal.
