      Garhwali story /fiction world is lucky for having various subjects, styles in stories. In each story of Garhwali story/fiction world is different than other story in plot, theme, character and characterization, setting, atmosphere and style. For example, Garhwali story by Bhishma Kukreti ‘Gangajal’ is a fine example of creating images of festival and fair.  The story takes the readers in rural Garhwal of sixties. In story, he creates first suspense and then narrates various aspects of Fulun Maina (month of flowers, Chait), the month of song, Bikhot festival celebration and Bikhot fair at Byaschatti the meeting place of Ganga and Nayar rivers. There is memoir of a kind hearted and sacrificing Shilpkar woman in the story. The characterization of Shilpkar woman and her sacrifice make the story vibrant and compelling. The story is told in first person and every event is seen and felt by the author.    
    The metaphors, simile descriptive language of story ‘Gangajal ‘create fine image of Bikhot

The story is successful in creating desired images of festival and fair and the Shilpkar woman and her sacrifice. Kukreti uses the effective tactics for creating auditory imagery, kinesthetic imagery, offertory imagery, gustatory imagery and tactile imagery in the said story.
