Kumaon kaa itihaas (History of Kumaon)

This page is under construction..will be testing to see if i can upload an entire book in the next few days..

Hello to all daajus and dagadus,

While on my trip home in the sumemr of 07, I came across an old book in the attic..Kumaon ka Itihaas (The history of Kumaon), written by my great grandfather, Shri Badri Dutt Pande.

Right now I am trying to make it online, so that the other pahadi guys n gals of our generation and get a comprehensive online account of the history of our region. As of now, very little online material exists in this direction. Hopefully, after the next few months, when I have finished uploading this book, there will be lots. It is an extremely captivating and well researched text and if u like history, then i am sure u will like it.

Happy reading,
the blogmaster :-)

The links of the book are as follows -


  1. Cover Page
  2. Author Name
  3. Do Shabd (Two words)
  4. Punya Smriti (In remembrance)
  5. Premkuti aur badbaju ki tasveer (Picture of the author sitting in Premkuti)
  6. Lekhak kee bhumika (Role of Author)
  7. Sahayak Samagri (Helpful material)
  8. Hindi v Sanskrit (ancient Hindi and Sanskrit texts)
  9. Aprakashit Lekh (Unpublished texts)
  10. Kumaon kaa itihaas - saat bhagon mein (History of kumaon in seven parts)
  11. Part 1 - Ancient

Hi! Prashant

First of all congragulations on the good work. This books has very few copies and it is good that you are bringing it online. However, I think your are not a direct descendent of Sh. Badri Dutt Pande. From the comments posted on this forum, It seems that you are Sh. B D Pande's, sister's or cousin sister's great grand son. I may be wrong but just curious. Can you please clarify? Not that it really matters, the work is excellent.

पाण्डेय जी अपने पूर्वजों को याद करने और उनकी यादों को सहेज कर रखने का इससे बढ़िया कार्य और कोई ओर ही नहीं सकता, आपका यह प्रयास इस कालजयी पुस्तक को अमरत्व प्रदान करने की दिशा में एक भागीरथ प्रयास है, आपका प्रयास सराहनीय होने के साथ-साथ हम सब के लिये अनुकरणीय है. आपको आपके इस प्रयास में सफल होने हेतू हार्दिक शुभकामनायें.

I saw a portion of your grand father's book in a seminar on environmental issues mainly related to global warming. There were some facts in it which defies concept of global warming with historical facts. i need this book, can you let me know where it is available?
