                  Arjun Singh Gusain started editing and publishing ‘Hilans’ a monthly magazine in 1978 in a small way from Mumbai. However, it became popular among Uttarakhandis magazine within no time due to its focused and intellectual subject. ‘Hilans’ became the mouth piece of separate Uttarakhand movement within no time. Arjun Singh Gusain was teacher in Cambridge School, Mumbai and he never need printing press as an additional source for his earning. However, he purchased a printing press just for publishing ‘Hilans’.
  This author, as many other literature creative; is a product of ‘Hilans’ a regional language magazine.
  Arjun Singh Gusain Smriti Samiti is celebrating 10th death anniversary of late Arjun Singh Gusain. The Samiti offered me a job to inform the people of Uttarakhand about contribution of ‘Hilans’ Magazine in Promoting Kumauni and Garhwali Literature.
