Monarchy of Nepal once cherished as a center of power and unity has gone relegated to history now. But it still commands concern and curiosity at the mass. It would be no overstatement to say that the book is the first of its kind to bring to public about the monarchy of the country, the nature of its governance and the procedures of the Royal Palace. The author has documented the events and experiences of working under the guidance of the two Kings: Birendra and Gyanendra.
