                           Review by Bhishma Kukreti

                 ‘Bargat’ is a short story written by Mahesha Nand and is one of stories from story collection ‘Augar’ (2013).
     The story deals with issues of cleanliness, health and exploitation by local remedies doctors (Jhad Tad)  
           The story teller Mahesha Nand illustrates the story with a flow that reader does not leave the story till end gets due surprise from the story narrator.
From the first few lines, Bargat is captivating story.
  Mahesha Nand uses story telling style as he is telling a folk story but with modern subject.
The plot, setting, characterization in the story is praiseworthy
  In many stanzas, the story flow is as poetic flow. There are raptures in a short story and that is the specialty of Mahesha.
  The dialogues are from real Garhwal villages. As is the characteristics of Mahesha Nand the language is Thet Garhwali or could be said unadulterated one from modern education.
         Mahesha Nand is teacher by profession and this author found that he does not mind telling the motivational motto at the end.
