About The Book

Born in 1898, Parasmani Pradhan began his long, steady, relentless struggle for the development, diffusion and due recognition of the Nepali language in India. From having Nepali recognised as a vernacular and medium of instruction in the Primary through Middle to the High Schools in the district of Darjeeling: as a subject of study at the College and University level; as the Official Language of the three Hill Sub-Divisions of Darjeeling district: its recognition by the Sahitya Akademi and ultimately to its recognition by the Government of India as one of the major languages of the Indian Union, he worked relentlessly for nearly 70 years till the very day of his death in 1986.

Apart from being an essayist, a grammarian, a lexicographer, linguist, poet, playwright, an editor and educationist, he was also a keen social reformer and directed all his efforts for progressive changes in our society.
