          Surendra Balodi (Dyolad, Dhumakot, 1960- ) is a well known drama activist in the theatre world of Uttarkashi, Garhwal. Surendra Balodi wrote, staged and directed three Garhwali plays apart from Hindi plays.
              Surendra balodi wrote and staged the drama Byakhuni k Gham’ in 1980 in Uttarkashi. The drama Byakhuni k Gham’ is staged thrice after its first time staging in 1980.
          The drama is about the difference of opinion about physical needs and mental needs.  In Mahabharata, Bhim tells to Yudhisthir that mental health and physical health are necessary. Same way, human being requires fulfillment of the physical needs and mental needs.
          Byakhuni k Gham’ means that ‘ sun is setting’. The story is that an old widow is spending her life in aloofness in remote village of Garhwal. Her son is settled in city and has a happy family. He loves his wife, children and his mother too. The son sends money order timely so that his mother fulfills her materialistic needs.  However, old lady dreams about her being with her son, talking with her daughter in law and playing with her grand children. The old widow is frustrated for non availability of warmth of her own family members.  Her son makes her understand that he is fulfilling her all materialistic needs by posting money order.
                The drama discusses about finer aspects of difference between materialistic needs and mental needs. The drama is mirror of widows whose children are in cities; these old widows are without family members and spending life in aloofness in rural Garhwal.
