What is the Himalayan Studies all about? If we go by the objectives provided by the National Mission on Himalayan Studies, we find that it not only covers specific geopolitical ideas, but also verges on an extremely rich cultural heritage, history, and heritage patterns. The Himalayas are a rich platform for major ethnographic research, fostering sustainable forms of development and layers of democratization. Art, literature, culture, technology, communication, media, aesthetic traditions all have undergone major changes over the last few decades as part of various Himalayan study circles.

It is undeniable that there is a strong connection among polity, economy, and literature when it comes to studying the multitextured realms of Himalayan Studies. Representation of social groups, local engagements, and community bonding are seen at large even in translated works of the Himalayas. Although influenced by senses of modernization, we do not find a tectonic shift or a complete obliteration of the indigenous culture and heritage of the Himalayas. Myths, legends, self-generating systems of struggle and mass endeavour to stay together as part of a changing environment everyday is challenging, strenuous and contradictory oftentimes.

As Gargi Banerji and Mashqura Fareedi point out point out in their research article ‘Protection of Cultural Diversity in the Himalayas’,

“The Himalayan region may be considered to be a cultural complex, a composite of several cultural cosmoses rolled into one, each little valley or plateau with its distinctive cultural forms. Their altitude changes create different agroclimatic conditions and diverse ecosystems; their seclusion and remoteness has made them the last bastions of globally significant indigenous knowledge and cultural heterogeneity. The geographical and adaptation continuities have however helped create and preserve some features that form a uniquely ‘Himalayan way of life’ common across the range.”
