                    King Designated Sudarshan Shah met captain Hearsay at Anjanighat near Kankhal with Harsha Dev Joshi in 1811. Sudarshan Shah briefed Hearsay about repression of Gurkha in Kumaun, Garhwal and Himachal. Hearsay had been to Kumaon and Garhwal for two three times. Hearsay was anxious to dispatch Gurkhas from Kumaon, Garhwal. Hearsay heard Harshdev and Sudarshan Shah patiently.
        Sudarshan Shah showed papers (orders) of Emperor Aurangzeb given to late Garhwal King about the Jagir of Chandighat region and Dehradun. In fact, British had already appointed Hearsay as Jagirdar (Chieftain) of Chandighat.
                 Hearsay was habitual of buying weird materials and letters. Hearsay bought those orders from Sudarshan. Hearsay offered Sudarshan Shah some cash, food articles and 1000 Kacha Beegha land of Hara. Hearsay advised the both to come to Barely.  
                   Hara Land
 Hara is not Harrawala near Doiwala as the Jagir of Hearsay was in Chandi Pargana of Haridwar east of Ganga. Hearsay was also Jagirdar of a land near Barely. According to Hearsay Hara was the ruin of big brick fort. Hearsay supposed that Hara Fort was built by Suleman Shikoh. It was aid that Garhwal King kept Suleman Shikoh in Hara Fort and handed over here to Aurangzeb. Aurangzeb offered land of Chandighat and Dehradun to Garhwal in award for handing over Suleman by Garhwal King. However, the sayings of Hearsay do not fit with historical aspects as Suleman Shikoh was captured in Shrinagar by King Medanishah.
 There is aplace called Khara near Kankhal. The land is plain. Perhaps Sudarshan Shah used the land for agriculture to look after his family. There are ruins of Fort in Khara region.  In later stage Sudarshan Shah offered some area to his fellow Kriparam (Mmayram). Later on Forest department took land from Mayaram. Dr Dabral suggested that Khara and Hara are two names for one place. Most probably Hearsay offred that land to Sudarshan Shah and later on Sudarshan Shah handed over the land to his Panda Kriparam.
