A fair attempt to recreate the feel for the contemporary lives of people in a remote mountain village. Plenty of interesting characters, but I didn't find any of them drawn fully enough to engage me. The "progress" in the region was sad to see, and some of the political struggles were kind of interesting, but not deeply enough described either. Diwan Sahib was the highlight of the story, though, and the end regarding his papers well done.
