One Sentence Summary: The article discusses Nepali culture and society from a historical perspective.

Description: The article discusses Nepali culture and society from a historical perspective. The cultural practices of Nepal are essentially of the Hindu and Buddhist derivation finding expressions in the numerous rites and rituals, beliefs, social values, festivals, art, and architecture of the land. It discusses the result of contacts made by the immigrant Hindus from the south and the west with diverse Tibeto-Burman-speaking ethnic groups of the Nepal Himalayas. A series of social acculturations seems to have been produced in the cultures of these groups. It also discusses the process of Sanskritization. (Rajeev Ranjan Singh 2007-01-25)
