DR. BAJPAI's book takes us to Kinnaur in the Himalayas--a remote district bordering on the Tibetan region of China and Inhabited by the picturesque Kinner people.
Celebrated in myth and legeng, the Kinner are a simple folk who dwell happily amidst the rigours of an inhospitable climate and a difficult terrain. Traders, shepherds and agriculturists, theirs was a polyandrous society which is undergoing a change today due to the encroachment of modern civilization. And it is in this context that Dr. Bajpai, has attempted a multi-disciplinary study which is also chronological. He has lived among them and has tried to depict their folkways and customs, rites and rituals, boliefs and superstitions thus giving us a rounded picture of the "golden-voiced" Kinner.
