(Review of Garhwali Story Collection ‘Bwari’ (1987) by Durga Prasad Ghildiyal)
[Let Us Celebrate Hundredth Year of Modern Garhwali Story Literature]
There is indissoluble enmity between the families of Hari Pradhan and Nortu Seth for two generations. The enmity started from the time Sheru Pradhan and Bhagtu Seth grand fathers of Hari and Naurtu respectively. Panchhundo means when there is no talking terms between two families.
Educated and experienced Jagdish Seth asks his mother the reason for not ending the family enmity. His mother replies,” Byata, jaun haman dharna ki bat bwan , t ham hwe geyaan janani jat…” the story is about the easy way for ending disputes.
