In this book the author gives vivid account of its history, the social and cultural life of its people, and traces the impressive record of its economic development.
Overlooked by the supreme heights of Himalayan ranges, Himachal is a land of glaciers, of majestic snowfed rivers and cascading streams. This remote mountainous region has emerged after thousands of years of isolation to join the mainstream of national life.
Himachal Pradesh has been a closed book till recent times. The cavalcade of time in the adjacent plains barely touched Himachal. The world of its people has consequently been different from that of the neighboring plans. Conquerors have come and gone, leaving but little impact, and the myths and beliefs of Himachal have remained unaffected.
Thousands of years of isolation have only helped to ensure that modern thought and investigation find it difficult to penetrate the labyrinthine and misty paths.
