                          By: Bhishma Kukreti (A History Student) 

                   Harshadev Joshi suggested his strategy to Hearsay and Moorcroft for attacking Gurkha. Moorcroft and Hearsay convinced that the strategy of Harshadev Joshi is winnable strategy. The strategy was that Harshadev Joshi would gather his force and would capture Yamuna valley in the north of Dehradun and would block Amar Singh Thapa for running towards East of Yamuna.
     Hasting got information that the road to Tibet from Kumaon than Garhwal is easier and safe. Therefore, Hastings decided to bring Kumaon under the rule of East India Company or British. He put his argument that Company had right to take Kumaon and Bhabhar for freeing Garhwal and Kumaon from Gurkha Rule. Company also decided to have rule on Kiyardoon and Dehradun after winning Nepalese Territories.
   Ex Prince of Garhwal Sudarshan Shah went to Farrukhabad for meeting with Calbrook Calbrook told Sudarshan Shah for going with British army to Dehradun and provoking Garhwalis against Gurkhas.  British assured Sudarshan Shah that after win the Company would reward Shah by handing over his Kingdom.
 Harshadev Joshi convinced British officials that the Kumaon citizens would not accept Lal Singh (brother of Ex Kumaon Ruler). British already decided to rule Kumaon directly. Lal Singh came for helping British. British refused for taking help from Lal Singh.
                   Ex Nepalese Territory Kings

          British told the Ex Chieftains of Tulasipur, Baisee, Chaubeesee, Palpa, Ramangarh, Makwanpur, Sikkim for helping British Army and provoking citizens against Gurkha.
