In the historiography of Nepal the present book entitled Nepal and the Nepalese written by Lt. Col. G.H.D. Gimlette is one of the most authentic and useful works. Some Residency people had published valuable works which give us first hand information on various aspects i.e. social, economic, political, cultural, sociological, anthropological, fauna and flora, topography etc. of the time. Very interestingly, some of the very useful books were written by Residency Surgeons like Daniel Wright (History of Nepal), H.A. Oldfield (Sketches from Nepal) and the present author also. Lt. Col. G.H.D. Gimlette was a Residency Surgeon at Kathmandu who stayed in Kathmandu from November 1883 to June 9, 1887 A.D., during which period many important events took place. Most important one was the coup of Bir Shamsher and his brothers against their uncle Sir 3 Maharaj and Prime Minister Ranauddip Singh on Sunday, November 22, 1885 A.D., where he was working as the Officiating Resident. Gimlette has written on the basic of his personal experience in this way. Nepal is a narrow strip of mountainous country adjoining the northeastern frontier of British India.

India is an ancient country where many civilizations have emerged, flourished and perished. Earliest discovered is Harappa and Mohenjodaro which flourished in about 3100 BC or before. It is the land of sacred Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas. Sanskrit probably the earliest of Aryan languages was mother tongue of the India. India has been a victim of foreign invasions since 326 B.C. But all those who came before Muslim invaders followed the faith of land and became part of Indian society. The foundation of Muslim Sultanate at Delhi was laid by Muhammad Ghori when he defeated Prithvi Raj Chauhan of Ajmer in 1193 A.D. The Muslim invasions not only brought Islam to India, subjected its population to various kinds of barbarities and religious persecution but also left one third of Indian population converts to Islam. The Muslims and their clergy of foreign origin gave birth to two nation theory under the divide and rule policy of British government in India to prolong their rule which ultimately resulted in partition of India into Pakistan and Indian Union. The Hindu-Muslim riots that followed just before partition claimed 6, 00,000 lives beside resulting immigration of one hundred and forty million mostly Hindus and Sikhs. The present book gives an authoritative account of Indian history in its pristine glory to the present of affairs.

Some select extracts from his speeches and writing are appeared to the book. Organised in ten chapters, this book covers almost of Swami Vivekananda's educational thought.
