Om Prakash Semwal is teacher by profession and his poems, songs, dramas and his stories discuss many social subjects. There are many reasons that parents prefer sons against daughters in south Asia or East Asia. Om Prakash Semwal depicts and discusses a few reasons for preference of sons by parents in his story ‘As’.
Bhadu and Vimla are happy married couple. Vimla is happier than Bhadu that they have two sons and their Bhadu’s cousins have daughters. Vimal is more happy that all properties of Bhadu’s cousins would ultimately come to her sons. Bhadu’s elder son Manu takes works in village and younger son goes to Delhi and takes employment there. When both sons are married they are separated. Parents are also divded along with properties. Badu had to leave village to live with his younger son Saunu. Vimla lives with Mainu in village. However, Bhadu does not adjust with the new metro life. He returns back to village and is shocked to see very bad condition of his wife. Now Vimla talks about need of daughters.
Semwal is successful in raising the questions of parental utility of sons and daughters in this story. He keeps the story simple and engages readers. The dialogues are from real life and also fit to characters. Most of the characters act as if they are from real life. Semwal leaves the question of preference for son and daughters to the readers.
