               Dr. Surendra Semalti is a poet and prose maker in Garhwali.  The story ‘Bhut’ by Semalti is about negative points of blind faith. Jeetram a teacher wanted to teach dance to his students for annual program. At home, in night he starts practice for various types of dances that he can teach the students best dances attractive to public. He never did dancing before anybody in his life. From outside, when his wife saw him changing stances (for dance) she came to conclusion that evil soul has caught Jeetram. Instead of asking him she immediately brings Mantrik. Mantrik reads various folk chants (Rakhwali) and beats Jeetram by Kandali. Mantrik also slaps Jeetram here and there. Jeetram finds way to tell the truth.

           The story is very fine story from many points. Semalti depicts the story very smoothly and readers create images about the happening. The pace of story is very fast and readers don’t get time to divert their minds from the story.  Dr. Surendra uses Tiryali (Tihri Garhwal) dialects and dialogues are just to speed up the story. The characters are commonly found in rural Garhwal. The story about negative points of blind faith provides message that without complete knowledge don’t take decision and do not follow blind faith when it is not required.
