2. for Stand-up laughter act by Matber Chauhan of Rawna, Youtube Link is :

Brief : There are a number of entertaining Jokes prevalent in the Hills of Jaunsar Bawar, Uttarakhand. Gatherings on different occasions have been thoroughly entertained by some of the original exponents & dext experts in cracking jokes to a big laughter. Here is one of them namely Mr Matber Singh Chauhan of Rawna doing the honours at Jaunsar Bawar Mahotsav 2012 held Delhi on 22 January 2012.  He has two Jokes superbly told and acted upon : 1. Few educated Juansaris were in cocktail rejoice party called Hailla (in which guests are invited for drinks & snacks by one house-hold after the other). They would call out "Cheers" every time offered a drink without realising that village-folks with them were taking "cheers" for "Chais" which in Jaunsar means sound slap/s. On repeated clamour for Cheers or Chais, the villagers finally obliged them with sound slaps each". Shocked & dejected educated brats inquired  the reasons for slapping treatment given to them, straight came the answer, " haamre billa ethuk bolon be chais or in our area this is actually called "Chais ."

2. The second Joke relates a story of a Jaunsari woman who in her maiden visit to Vikasnagar, a town nearby, mistook bus for house. She took-off her shoes before entering it, in keeping with true Jaunsari tradition of entering house bare-foot. After a while when she was to leave, the woman was surprised to find her shoes missing. She turned to bus conductor and quizzed him saying, "Where has my shoes gone which I had taken off in front of the door of your house?" Realising what has happened Conductor replied, "The house has reached Dehra Dun, but your shoes are just 45 KM behind at Vikasnagar."
