Life of Maharaja Sir Jung Bahadur of Nepal
This is the story of Maharaja Sir Jung Bahadur Rana, one of the most fascinating and enigmatic personality in Nepali history. His life was dramatically eventful right from his early days to his sudden death. The book documents his life as a soldier in the army, elephant-catcher, gambler, to his being inducted for assacination assignments, culminating in the infamous Kote Massacre, which made Jung Bahadur the most powerful person in Nepal. He then went on to take complete control of the state by virtually keeping the Royals under house arrest.
