(INDIA ALMANAC 1947)
(1) BHUTAN AREA 18.00 sq mile, is an independenent Himalayan state, under the prtectorate in respect of foreign relations, of His Majestys Gvernment, possessing s fretile soil and temperate climate. The population ,computed to number about 300.000, are sturdy folk, of Tibetan affinities, in recent times there has been a considerable Nepalese immigration in the foot-hill region.
Though politically independent of Tibet. Bhutan is succeptible to Tibetan influence for the Bhutanese share the religion and culture of Tibet, and look to the Dalai lama as their spiritual head. In former times,China exchanged presents with Bhutan , but did not established effective suzerainity.
(2) For some 250 miles ,Bhutan dominated a tract of Land,singulary rich and fertile ,situated partly in Bengal and partly in Assam,knwn as the Eighteenth Duars( Duar being a dr or pass). This area and what is now the Stae of Cooch Behar formed the traditional happy hunting-ground of Bhutanese free-boters.
(3) The History of Bhutan
indeed it was the fOrcible abduction of the Cooch Behar Raja and his brother that led indirectly to the first intercuse between ,John Company’ and Bhutan. This Bhutanese aggresion was followed by a small successful expeditin under a COmpany Officer. This led then Tashi Lama (wh was also Regent of Tibet) to address a friendly letter to Warren Hastings, inter-ceding on behalf of the erring Bhutanese.
Warren Hastings immediately respnded by deputing Bogles ‘Good-Will Mission’. Bogle travelled via Bhutan and en route establish cordial relation there in 1774.
The Bogle travelled continiue till 1792. in this year Nepal invaded Tibet, the Chinese suspected that the Bengal authrities had engineered this invasin, and by their influence induced the Bhutanese to shut the door.
The suspicion and hostility thus engendered was accentuated, when the Company extending its influence to Assam, on the expulsion of the Burmese in this year 1825, became heir to the uneasy relatin existing between the Assamese and Bhutan; cnditin prevailed comparable with thse in the Derajat on the Waziristan border at their worst.
Thirty cases of plundering occured and at least 25 Indians were unknwn to have been carried ff into slavery. Meanwhile 50 outrages were committed in Coch Behar territry (ne invlving ver RS 20.000 wrth prpertys) and 60 residents of the state were Kidnapping
Indian Mutiny of 1857 served to post-pone settlement.
The envoy (Mr E.Eden) sent in 1863, charged with proposals of a concilliatry charactor, but instructed to demand the return of all captives and plundered property and security for the future peace of the Frontier was insulted in open Darbar and put under duress.
The Bhutan war of 1864 led to the conclussion of the Treaty of Sinchula in January 1886, Bhutan cede in perpetuity the whle f the 18 Duars and in return recieved a subsidy f RS 50.000 a year.
Since that date realtin with Bhutan have been exellent, and the bonds between Bhutan and India grown closer.
In 1907 the leading chief of Bhutan, Tongsa Pealop Ugen Wangchuk was elected by the unanimous votes of Bhutan Chief s and a number of monks as hereditary Emperor of Bhutan

Finally in 1910, in return for an increase in the Subsidy of RS 50.000 paid under the Sinchula Treaty to RS 1.000.000 that treaty has been amended t include a provision that Bhutans freign relatin should be cntrolled by the British Government at the same time undertaking to exercise on interference in the internal administratin of Bhutan.
Under anther agreement the Bhutan Government has undertaken to remove all liqour shops from within a 10s miles zone of the British District border in return for an annual conpensation of Rs 1.000.000.
