Hard worker Garhwalis were eager for making their life happy by cooperation and entertainment.
In night, people used to gather at Padhan chowk or other suitable place and used to dance and sing or used to tell tales. People used to sing songs while working too. Mostly, songs were related to pain of separation from mother by girls after marriage, illicit relation etc. Pathos songs were common among women.
Males used to stay at Goth (temporary cattle shed on farm) used to play Damru and sing song in night.
While, pasturing people used to sing songs.
