The Contribution of Late Shri Harilal Upadhyay is not limited to novels only. He have wrote some Short Stories
(generally folk stroies) also. Due to his nature of being explorative (and down to earth personality),
during his research work he met a lot of people. From this experiences he have seen the other side of
the society also. He found the people who live with nature and animals might be poor at wealth but
not morals, brave enough to stand for the truth, ready to help to the strangers also.
They can show such great idea of self respect, huminity and ethics which is very tough for wealthy,
educated people also.
From these experiences he have decided to enlighten these events amongst the world and we all are

values which reaches the sky"... ah, what to say!!!
