Becoming and establishing a person as an expert is a difficult matter. The results provided by one's profession, publications and presentations will prove academic and expert. The ideas and conclusions made from the study and research of the scholar play a role in forming the opinion about him in the society. However, such ideas about a scholar are determined by people's subject interests and knowledge, level of understanding and access to people.

Diplomatic memoirs of a Nepalese expert

Professor S.D., who is known in India as a Nepali expert. Muni is one such personality, whose academic activities such as study-teaching and research-debate under the field of international relations led to many formal and informal opportunities to work as an Indian diplomat. His latest book, 'Doubling in Diplomacy', is a collection of these experiences. He says in the introduction, 'Diplomacy involves many others. All have effects and consequences, both good and bad. Some are secret and informal. Because I had to write them, I thought I would avoid writing of this nature, but because of friends and well-wishers, this is a true and honest effort written on the basis of memory (not writing a diary) in the later part of life.'' . Born in a small village in Jodhpur, passed through Jaipur, the capital of the state (Rajasthan), to Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi, an excellent student of pure science, went to higher education in sociology (politics), studied Nepal-India relations, became a professor emirates from a secondary teacher of science and mathematics, and became an internationally recognized diplomat! These are not ordinary achievements and they are not the result of his single effort alone. How does a child from a lower-middle class family become a struggling individual? How does the positive role of family, relatives, society, institutions, friends, colleagues and teachers and supervisors make him mature and develop agency? One that awakens the hunger to refine and sharpen their subject and to find more goals and find and determine the way to get there? As a result, a person becomes a personality over time, all doors of opportunity open up. In the process of work, social capital is formed through wide human-network, contact formula. In return, he can work and contribute to his family, society and country by making use of the opportunities and social capital built up in his professional life. This book with these lists is an inspiring professional memoir by a seasoned scholar. The

book has seven chapters from 'Introduction' to 'Learning'. Three of them are in Nepal, one in Sri Lanka, one in Laos as a non-career ambassador, and one as a special envoy in the Northeast Asian region, including Cambodia, as well as other countries with informal or various forms of diplomatic roles. Pvt. Muni's professional expertise and life start India-Nepal relations The

study began with research. Although theoretically an expert is not limited to nationality, as long as internal political borders exist in the world, there are enough pragmatic lines that it is not possible for a person to become a full international citizen and get out of the bonds of nationality. Whether it is the internal politics of the countries he studies and is involved in, or foreign relations, he is citizen-centric. He thinks that happiness, peace and progress in the internal, regional and world society is possible only if a citizen-centered state, a government system that operates according to the will of the people is established and stabilized. For that, the ruler should be elected by the people, he should act according to the people's wishes. In this sense, he is not apolitical and without political values. He seems to be a staunch supporter of social democracy and a staunch opponent of any form of autocracy. Both support and opposition are based on facts, logic and evidence, so those who don't like him cannot reach his level of influence and counter.

Not only did he advocate for the establishment of democracy through democracy in Nepal and peace during the Tamil rebellion in Sri Lanka, he also met and understood the rebels, gave opinions and facilitated the establishment to bring them to the peace process.

Thinking so, he puts India's interest at the center, which is also a civic duty. The initiatives and results achieved by him to agree on the establishment which is not beneficial even for India, which has faced many rebel groups without mainstreaming the Maoist rebels in Nepal, a neighborhood with open borders with India and diverse relations up to the civil level, are noteworthy. On the other hand, he has worked hard to address the discontent of the Sri Lankan Tamil rebels, who have a large population in South India and a common nationality. Although the parties came together in Nepal as a result of Indian facilitation and the peace process and establishment of democracy was possible through people's movements, the Tamil issue was not addressed in Sri Lanka. He has included the detailed reason in the book.

When it comes to bilateral and multilateral issues and disputes in India's neighborhood or international relations, he is seen standing up for and defending the Indian national interest. However, in doing so, he supports and defends some of his views if they are in line with the establishment. When it doesn't match, they criticize with alternatives. However, he advocates further promotion of issues and debates of mutual interest. This is what a scholar does for the country and the nation. A professor's capital is his produced human resources and publications. And, as a scholar, it is the group, network and society of people within and outside the country working in his subject area, which is called social capital. Professor Muni's work can be seen as a model of how a responsible scholar can mobilize his social capital to bring about results in favor of the national interest. His work was exemplary in raising the issue of restructuring the United Nations, rousing the Global South and agreeing to propose India as a permanent member.

India's foreign policy is still dominated by bureaucracy. The book covers many incidents and events that seem to be dominated by outsiders from the foreign service, who do not readily accept being experts who train them and help them conduct research, and who consider their involvement as an intrusion into their base area.

Muni was chosen by the Janata Dal-led government. The subsequent BJP and Congress-led governments rejecting his resignation and trusting him to complete his tenure with confidence shows his political universality. Despite the misbehavior at the beginning, after he reached the mission, the behavior and support of the staff administration towards him became normal and strong. It is inspiring.

According to the Indian practice of making scholars study and research on bilateral disputes, he was also given the responsibility of studying the Nepal-India Peace and Friendship Treaty-1950 and Trade and Transit Treaty. He has written not only the strengths of Nepali leaders but also many weaknesses in the book. From India's independence movement to Nepal's movement for democracy and democracy, Nepali Congress-Communist cooperation with Indians is generalized. However, Darbaria Kitta makes it a 'broker' comment and uses it to spread misinformation against the parties. However, a different example has been revealed in the book this time, even a person who got a lifetime opportunity staying close to the palace and reached the JNU professor's quarters carrying a koseli to ask for a minister in the republic.

is a laboratory society of political science, where there is diversity in the view-understanding of the same subject. The book has a place for the interest and analysis of all readers, as issues such as the background, perspective, academic knowledge and access of the person are decisive and determining in the formation of ideas.

There are some names, dates, political-historical events about Nepal that conflict with the leadership's ideas, principles and environment (such as 'BP supported the Indian role of incorporating Sikkim into India'). It is natural for readers to expect more research publications based on facts and evidence on such in-depth topics covered in the phrase.
