Description The present volume gives a comprehensive account of the Gurkhas, who constitute a majority of the population of the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. It narrates its geographical Location, history, religion, major castes, administrative system, monarchy and Gurkhas' recruitment in British Indian Army. Since the book is based on his personal diaries prepared during his military service in Nepal and his collection of old manuscripts and relevant written material, his narration is quite authentic, reliable and exhaustive. It is a valuable guide for researchers of history of the Gurkhas and Nepal.[edit]
