About the Author

Mani Dixit's interest in writing started from his teenage days while attending Sherwood College in Naini Tal and later at Bishop Cotten School in Simla. His first work, Boys of Nepal, was written for young readers while attending school in India. Later works include The Red Temple and Come Tomorrow.

Following school, he spent the next ten years in London studying medicine. In 1961,he qualified as a doctor from the Charing Cross Hospital Medical School before returning to his homeland of Nepal to involve himself in medical work. He has since become the President of the Nepal Medical Association and a Professor of Paediatric Medicine.

Dr. Dixit enjoys travelling, having been to Europe, Russia, China and Thailand. As a member of P. E. N. Nepal, he hopes to continue writing in the near future.

Preface

This book was written about forty years ago. I decided in 1967 to have it first published with all the faults of a teenager's work, for sinceraly speaking, I did not want the first issue of my brain to be stillborn. It was brought out as Chandra & Damaru-Boys of Nepal, under a pseudonym. A second edition was subsequently brought out as Two Towards Kantipur under my pseudonym.

About this book. It is neither history nor a true story-it is simply fiction. Imagine that it occurs around 1770 A.D. and that Kantipur is the present day Kathmandu. Let me state that this is a book intented for pleasent reading for young adults. Although I assueme my own purpose is fullfilled, I hope that this book will be a trend-setter by encouraging other author in the field to come forward.

In conclusion, I would like to thank my many friends for their suggestions and pointing out faults. More specifically, I would like to thank Dr. Mike Cooper and the editors of Pilgrims Book House for their painstaking labour in the editing of the text and for the publisher's keen interest in bringing out the present edition.

Back Of Book

The Adventure of Chandra and Damaru

TWO BOYS OF NEPAL

Chandra and Damaru are two village friends who live in the remote jungle of Eastern Nepal, in the olden days when most of Nepal was covered by unspoiled primeval forest.

One day the teenagers decide to run away to Kantipur-and that's when their adventures begin: killing a tiger, being captured by armed robbers, outwitting the evil bandit king and his henchmen of cannibals disguised as holy men-and ultimately, saving their village from attact and disaster!

An exciting adventure story for young readers that gives and unusual insight into the traditional life styles and customs of the Himalayan Kingdom. Preface

This book was written about forty years ago. I decided in 1967 to have it first published with all the faults of a teenager's work, for sincerely speaking, I did not wan the first issue of my brain to be stillborn. It was brought out as Chandra & Damaru-Boys of Nepal, under a pseudonym. A second edition was subsequently brought out as Two Towards Kantipur under my pseudonym.

It is gratifying to note that this new third edition is being published as literature for young readers, which presently is relatively sparse in our part of the world. With the increased use of English as a medium of instruction in Asia, the requirement for reading matter other than textbooks is going to be great.

About this book. It is neither history nor a true story-it is simply fiction. Imagine tha it occurs around 1770 A. D. and that Kantipur is the present day Kathmandu. Let me state that this is a book intented for pleasant reading for young adults. Although I assume my own purpose is fulfilled. I hope that this book will be a trend-setter by encouraging other authors in the field to come forward.

In conclusion, I would like to hank my many friends for their suggestions and pointing out faults more specifically, I would like to thanks Dr. Mike Cooper and the editors of Pilgrims Book House for their painstaking labour in the editing of the text and for the publisher's keen interest in bringing out the present edition.
