Darjeeling: Society, Economy and Polity

350.00

Darjeeling: Society Economy and Polity unveils the history of the emergence of Darjeeling as a social entity backed by economic prospects and spearheaded by political aspirations.  It not only delves into the manner in which the mountainous terrain was turned into an urban centre with unique socio-cultural features arising out of the styles but also due to nature and its beauty that stamped its indelible mark on the character and formation of a people’s mentality. The history, it’s past, the present and its travail and the difficulty to delineate the kind of future it has before it is explored in this little book in a quietly studied way. Dispassionate and yet involved, taking the stand of an almost guilty bystander making the conjectures of what land could become and where, instead, it’s tumbling into.
