Two years later, popular demand made Conan Doyle resurrect the great detective. Holmes informs a stunned Dr Watson: 'I travelled for two years in Tibet, therefore, and amused myself by visiting Lhasa.' This is all that the world has known of Sherlock Holmes' journey to the East. Jamyang Norbu - an avid reader of Kipling and Doyle decides to take the matter in his hands; to investigate Holmes' stay in Lhasa, Tibet. What he unearths is the Mandala, written by a wily Bengali scholar, Hurrie Chunder Mookerjee, Holmes' travelling companion. The Mandala holds the key to the mystery and reveals Holmes in a landscape so fascinating, a game so intriguing that it is difficult to resist. An exciting, often richly humorous detective story The Mandala of Sherlock Holmes also evokes the romance of Kipling's India.

He is the author of Warriors of Tibet, the biography of a Kampa warrior; Illusion and Reality, a collection of his political essays, and the editor of The Performing Traditions of Tibet.
