Teeri Dam: A Garhwali Fiction witnessing pain of Sinking Tehri City

Teeri Dam: A Garhwali Fiction witnessing pain of Sinking Tehri City
Chronological History and Review of Modern Garhwali Short Stories/Fiction series)
(Review of Short story Collection ‘Meru Pahar ‘ (Stories written by Rakesh M. Thapliyal-1)
(Review of ‘Teeri Dam’ a short story (story written by Rakesh M. Thapliyal )
Review by: Bhishma Kukreti (Literature Historian)
Tehri city had been important town or city in literature of Garhwal. Dr Mahavir Prasad Gairola wrote a couple of stories surrounding Tehri (now sunk). Many Garhwali poets illustrated the pain of sinking Tehri for development making (modern India) . Rakesh Mohan Thapliyal is First Garhwali fiction writer that penned down as a witness the stories of sinking Tehri once the capital of Garhwal Kingdom. Yes! The Story ‘Teeri Dam’ contains tens of small stories. In Fact, Rakesh Mohan tried condensing the subject of a standard novel into 7000 words short story.
The story starts from an old women visiting (frustratingly) to land settlement department and then opens a panorama of characters by characters telling the incidents; there are pains of people displaced or would be displaced, there are pains of getting compensations from settlement office, there are nepotism, corruption, lethargy in settlement office and various principles about dam constructions in the said story Teeri dam by Rakesh. Rakesh takes the readers to the history of Tehri city and also introduces with Chipko Hero Sundar Lal Bahuguna and his sayings about Dam.
The biggest back draw of the story is that there are many subjects in short story and in reality the plot is suitable for novel .A common reader likes story with one single or double plot, aim and subjects.
The subjects of the story are still live for discussion among politicians, administrators, anthropologists, environmentalists and societies too.
The story is narrated through dialogues that also makes complex situation for readers understanding the characters.
Rakesh Mohan tried his best to capture the scene of 100 years of picture of Tehri history and ten years of Dam construction. He is successful in illustration his aim.
Dialogues are as per characters, time and place. Rakesh uses successfully similes and metaphors for speeding up the story line too. This author never visited Old Tehri but by reading the said story, this author could easily view the Old Tehri, the beloved Tehri and constructing the Dam on Reverend Rivers Bhagirathi –Bhilangana confluence.
The language is from Tehri region and does not make any difference for a reader from Dhangu, (South Pauri Garhwal), Rath (upper Pauri Garhwal or Neeti (China border Chamoli) for understanding the language. Rakesh proved wrong the supporters of standard Garhwali is the only alternate for Garhwali literature.
