         There has been tendency of creating stage-plays or drama for lambasting hypocrisy in society in every community and every language.
               ‘Coming Home’ by playwright George Halitzka is a drama about hypocrite mother taking alcohol drink regularly but preaching children not to take alcohol; Senior Trip by same playwright about hypocrisy; ‘Tartuffe’ drama by playwright Jean-Baptiste (1664) is about hypocrite man pretending as deeply religious and moral man; Henrik Ibsen exposing hypocrisy in his stage plays or dramas; are a couple of examples of dramas or stage plays exposing hypocrisy in each community or in each language.
    The stage play or mini drama ‘Bhat’ written by playwright Om Prakash Semwal was stage in 1996 in a school district Chamoli Garhwal now Rudraprayag.   Two Brahmins Bhawani and Geeta from same village are close friends and share rice-mutton, alcoholic drink together in a town restaurant. They don’t mind taking ‘Bhat-Shikar (rice –mutton) from the same plate and taking drink from same glass.  However, when the time comes to sit together for taking meal in a common platform of village marriage party Bhavani refuses to attend for marriage party as Geeta is coking Bhat (rice). Geeta’s mother was from lower cast Brahmin.
   Bhat’ drama is an educational drama and is aimed at young student audience. The language and events of the stage play are simple to engage the teen ager students. The student audience definitely would feel awkward about watching the exposure of hypocrisy of two types of Brahmins.
