(Critical Review of Modern Garhwali Fiction)
Let Us Celebrate Hundredth Year of Modern Garhwali Fiction!
Gali is marvelous short story by Netra Singh Aswal (Hilans, November, 1979). Netra Singh Aswal wrote a couple of Garhwali stories and all are gems of modern Garhwali fiction world.
The mother of Ghutadu used abusive words for Patrol or forest watchman (in relation-her jithanu). Forest watchman means the employee of village councils. The village council decides that abusing Patrol means abusing village council and the village council ounished father of Ghutadu.
One night, patrol, loudly was informing (Dhad) the villagers about closure of path for a particular area. In his each sentence, there were abusive words. Ghutadu asks his father how come Patrol can use abusive words. Father of Ghutadu beats Ghutadu.
The story tells that rules are for weaker people and not for powerful people or administrator. The story is short but with full of message. Netra Singh Aswal uses common words and proverbs of Garhwal. The flow is very fast.
