Achoshan: the Himalayan Warrior’, a three volumes book project. It is a fictional work that revolves around a young boy from Lhasumdho, a place inspired by Ladakh. One fine day, an incident turns him into a snow leopard that throws his world out of the window as he knew it.

The work will appear in bimonthly episodes starting from January 2019. The first episode (The icy red) was published on Amazon on 19th of Jan and received much readership.

The theme of the work is snow leopard, wildlife, environment, history, development, Ladakhand the Himalayas.

The Project will run as a series for three years with one episode published online in two months (six episodes in a year). Overall, it will consist of three volumes (with six chapters each).

The gist of the novel

Stanzin (Stan), a young boy from Lhasumdho, a place high up in the Himalayas, lives amidst snow clad mountains, drinks from fresh streams and rolls over swathes of soft green pastures. His childhood is about carefree frolicking around trees, climbing little barren hillocks near the village and tending to the sheep and cows. Soon, people from across the world discover Lha-sum-do and begin to visit the place. Within a decade, it transforms into a town with lots of buildings, traffic and pollution. However, he doesn't realise the alterations, until, one day, an incident brings him powers of a snow leopard. His quests, thus unravelled, send him on crazy adventures and escapades. Will Stanzin, a listless, homebound boy, withstand and reconcile with such startling circumstances?
