Ram Manohar Sah
It happened in Delhi University, while author was doing Masters, a hilly origin friend from Biratnagar yelled at him saying, “hey you Bihari”.Since last 10 years, author has been trying to find, why there is racial acrimony between Hill and Plain people, despite the truth that hill people avail all the benefits from plain people?
Ram Manohar Sah belongs to the Mehtari family, whose forefathers were the first residents within the ruins of Jaleshwar in Mahottari district. Ancestor of Mehtari, a grain merchant from Sakhuwa Maran, situated on the south bank of Kamala River, migrated to Jaleshwar during Sen Dynasty around 275 years ago. The Author who is currently based in New York, wanted to know, why Hill peoples in Nepal look down on people from the Plains. The search for the answer to this question led to this book which attempts to understand the reason for the decline of natives’ authority in the plains of Nepal. The rendezvous to the answer also led the author to discover the rich cultural heritage, and history of the Madhesh region situated at the foot of the Himalayas.The author is a Computer Engineer holding MBA degree from FMS, University of Delhi.

The birth place of Buddha, Janak and Sita that showed light to world, is struggling for peace and existence. The Middle country, translates to Madhyadesh in Sanskrit, is the genesis of the Madhesh.

Then, the book dive deep into the rich culture of plain, 1000 years of history, archeological heritages and local heroes. To set the book tone, author has collection of discrimination stories from different walks of life.
Book review about 200 years, from King Prithivi Narayan Shah till end of Rana rule,in three chapters from Madhesi perspective; grouped under War and Colonization.
Book has dedicated a chapter to understand, why there is acrimony between Hill and Plain since thousands of years? More importantly, the book explores, how foreign aid helped King Mahendra to fan the fire of racial hate between Hill and Plain people?
