Rakesh Mohan Thapliyal is well known writer especially known for writing his memoirs on Old Tehri town. Most of his stories in Garhwali story collection ‘Meru Pahar’ are plotted in Tehri only.
The present story ‘Pagal’ is illustration about the world of a madman. Most of us have experience of knowing one or couple of madmen in our locality or villages. Madmen have their own world where they don’t have the shame or embarrassment of past or worry for the future. Thapliyal shows too that madman lives always in present and does not have any worry of worldly pain or happiness. The story seems to be experienced most of readers.
Rakesh Mohan successfully documented the world of mad people and the behaviour of people towards those innocent people and how people make fun of those innocent. Children take mad people differently and Thapliyal documented children psychology towards dealing with madmen. The story creates pathos emotion. The story is emotional and is one of marvellous psychological stories of Garhwali language.
The writer is successful in creating interest from the beginning and twist at the end brings tears in eyes of readers.
The structure of story is marvellous. Dialogues and narration are from common uses and make the story interesting.
