(Review of Garhwali Story collection ‘Bwari’ (1987) by Durga Prasad Ghildiyal)
[Let Us Celebrate Hundredth Year of Modern Garhwali Story Literature]
Durga Prasad Ghildiyal was of that generation that was born before independence. Therefore, his each story has the importance of village development of cooperation and social values. There is extreme desire for youth getting education employment.
‘Hari kakhdi ‘is about a common habit of boys stealing cucumber from other’s field. However, the story makes Ganeshi an honest police man by stealing cucumber. The important character experienced ‘Bodi ‘changes the thinking pattern of Ganeshi.
