                    Bhishma Kukreti used to write on daily basis for first Garhwali daily Garh Aina , Dehradun. Kukreti also used to create cartoons for the same daily newspaper. Kukreti also published his satirical articles in Paraj , Mumbai; Matri pad , Shri Nagar and anjwal, Buransh, Ghati  ke Garejate swar , Dehradun etc.
  Bhishma Kukreti published his first satire ‘Been Barobar Garhwali’ or Garhwali for the sake of Garhwali in Dhad (1987-88) against the concept of standardization of Garhwali. His second satire against standardization of Garhwali was ‘ch, Chh Thau’ (dhad and Garh Aina, July, 1990). ‘Asli Nakli Garhwali was published in Dhad (June July 1991). Though his other satire against standardization were also published in Garh Aina as ‘whe t gyai smanakikaran’ etc   
          The concept of standardization is a noble idea. However, Kukreti stressed that when there is problem of Garhwali literature publication and readership increment the mere talk of standardization is of no use.
          Dr. Dabral provides details of discussion started after the above satirical write ups. Bhagwati Prasad Nautiyal published his satire against ‘ch, chh thau’ and Abodh Bandhu Bahuguna, Mohan Babulkar came against article ‘Asli Nakli Garhwali’ Kukreti.  In ‘Asli Nakli Garhwali’, Kukreti humorously and satirically claims that Salani is best for standard Garhwali.
  Dr Dabral states that ‘ch, chh , thau is an excellent example of satire. It is successful experiment that created hot discussion in contemporary Garhwali literature. The satire is sharp and is having best uses of word plays. Dr Dabral claims that there less energy in the satire.
