When the villagers require real developmental schemes, the gram Pradhan is busy in political maneuvering for his grand ambition of becoming state leader. There are two other village politicians having grand ambitions.   The political base drama ‘Bakharon Gwer Syal’ has potentiality to be played as street stage play.

The initial background dialogues declare the intension of political maneuvering in the drama.
(पर्दा बैक गौंड मा आम पाहडी गावक चित्र पैथर बिटेन कुछ आवाज )
एक जनानी बाच (अवाज)- छि भै गाँव मा नाम लीणो क्वी असल चीज बि नि मिलदी .मेरी डिल्ली मा ल़े ......
हैंकि जनानी बाच - भूलि कब तू डिल्ली बिटेन? तीन ऊं तै बि द्याख उख ? तीन मैना ह्व़े गेन मन्योडर नि भ्याज ...इख लाला रोज तून देणु रौंद..
तीसरी जनानी - पल्ली गां ले बांजुं पर मौळयार गे अर हमर गांवक बांजुं फर अबि बि बंजगोळि फुळणा छन
एक हैंकि जनानी बाच- जी ! यू नौनु भूकन रुणु . क्या जी कौरू ?
बुडड़ी बाच- ये ब्वारी तू तैक हथ मा खिल्वणि पकडै दि बौगे जालो.
( टन टन टन स्कुलै घंटी बजदी )
एक नौनु बाच - बाबा मी स्कूल जाणो छौं ! आज छमै इम्तान ..!
बुबा की किड़कताळ - उत्कू घस्सा . स्कूल जाणो छे अर स्यू छ्वटु भुला तेरी ननि पकड़ण . जा भुला तैं पकड़ .
एक नौनी बाच - ये बौ , ये बौ मी जरा झाड़ा जाणु छौं
हैंकि जनानी अवाज - हाँ हाँ झाड़ा हैं झाड़ा . अर स्यू उबर तेरी काणि ब्वेन लिपण? दुफरा मा लगै तै पुटकी पर आग .
हैंकि जनानी बाच - ये दीदी म्यार छ्वटु तै अखळ लगीं छन. सुबेर बिटेन उन्द अर उब ..
हैंकि जनानी - राम दां ये मुलक मा हस्पताळ ल़े हुंद ..इन कौर डाम धौरी दे

                 The dialogues are as per the social and economical status of the each character as:
परधान - (रुसेक ) द्याखो जी ! तुम प्रधानो तिबारी मा अयाँ छंवां. मी तै परधान जी परधान जी बोलीक भट्याओ
रिख्वा - कनो अब त्वे तैं गजे बिटा गजे बिटा कौरिक नि भट्याण?
परधान - नही अब मै इस बगत सिराफ ग्राम प्रधान हूं
रिख्वा (खौंळेक) ये मेरी ब्व़े ! हैं क्या जमानो गे. अब परधान मनिख नि राई. हैं ! पण पैल बि हमर इख थोकदार होंदा छया पण नाता रिश्ता कबि नि बिसरदा छया. हैं ...कुज्याण कळजुग मा

                  The playwright is successful in showing the cruelty of political maneuvering for gaining the political ambitions and the political leaders don’t hesitate in taking the lives of innocent people for expanding their political region.
धर्मा - क्या बुना छंवां ? कु सच्च मानल ?
धिंग्वा - अरे बिचकीं छुँयुं फर , बथों फर सौब भर्वस करदन .
धर्मा - पण वा ब्वारी सती साबितरी वीन सती ब्वारी बदनामी करण भली बात नि !
धिंग्वा- अरे बेवकूफ, लाटो , राजनीति अठ्वाड़ मा कै ना कै तैं ब्याला बणाण जरोरी . राजनीति मा ना क्वी ब्वारी होंद ना क्वी बेटी बस नाम बड़ी चीज होंद
धर्मा .पण ..
धिंग्वा - ईं राजनीति अठ्वाड़ मा बळि को ब्याला खुज्याण पोडल . अब बन्वारी सती साबितरी जन ब्वारी सै .
               The Garhwali phrases are definitely satirical.  The political maneuvering drama has dialogues and situations of real life.
