Literature Historian: @ Bhishma Kukreti
Gail-Bald (the lazy bull) is the story about Galadar (live stock trader) selling live stock by deceptive methods. In villages, there are live stock traders those sell the domestic animals by tricks and buyers get unwanted or undesired animal that might be a cow, buffalo or bull pair.
The story is an unreliable seller sells his lazy bull pair to Puranu. Now, the story tells the bad fate of Puranu. The story is interesting in telling the pain for Puranu and the question is for readers about the way Puaranu sells those bulls.
The story is from Garhwali society and happens on daily basis. Mahesha Nand uses proverbs and phrases as ‘Bhappi- Suppi’, ‘Thamthayt’, Dam Dharan’ for making the story interesting and speeding the story.
The story teller uses descriptive and dialogues for forwarding the story. Phrases as ‘ Baldun Thamthyat ar Ghandyun Chhamchhyat’ offer pleasure for readers.
The dialogues and description fit to story characters. Even Mahesha describes the practical strategies used by Galadars as concealing and falsifying .
Those experienced the Galadari of unreliable traders would state that the story is real and they are witnesses for many such true events. The story is interesting to read.
