Advanced History of Nepal: 1737-1839
The Present Book Deals With Two Important Aspects Of The History Of Nepal: One The Expansion Of Gorkha Which Unwittingly Ultimately Led To The Formation Of Modern Nepal; And The Other The Tracing Of The Long History Of The Conspiratory Politics Of The Court Of Nepal. Both The Events Were Of Much Importance In The History As They Were Most Important Epoch-Making Events. During The 18Th Century, Nepal Was Just A Geographical Expression Not A Political Entity. Such A Small Country Also Was Divided Into Fifty Four Petty Principalities Some Of Which Were Too Meager To Be Called A State And Had A Few Thatched Huts. The Joint Family System Had Its Impact On The Polity As Its Result Many Times The Kingdom Was Divided Among The Issues Of A King As The Ancestral Property. Moreover, The Lack Of Unity Among The Descendants Of The Same Family Also Led To The Disintegration Of The Big Kingdom Like Those Of Senas And Mallas. Thus, When Nepal Was Shattered Into Pieces, There Emerged A Small And Youngest Principality Which Shouldered The Burden Of Uniting The Divided Political Units Into One Bigger State. That Burden Was Borne By Gorkha.Gorkha, Although The Youngest Among The States In The Western Nepal, Was Made Strong, Well Determined And Daring By Its History. The Centuries Old Struggle For Its Existence Against Lamjung Had Made The Nation Militant, Cemented The Relation Between The Ruler And Ruled, And Determined To Do Something. In This Context Rulers Like Rama Shah, Prithvipati Shah And Others Had Contributed A Lot In The Growth Of The State. Rama Shah Became Shah In The Of Expansion Of Gorkha Empire. The Poverty Stricken And Outcastes Were Looked Down Upon By Next Door Neighbours And Humiliated Gorkha Sought A New Say For Its Growth And Development. Gorkha Made The Glorious History Under The Competent Ruler Like Prithvinarayan Shah.
