But little Dipsing is mostly oblivious of his stature as a king although he knows he would have to shoulder the responsibility of preserving the centuries-old tribal tradition.

 Emperor of India - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The title was created some years after the formal incorporation into the British Empire of Britain's possessions and protectorates on the Indian subcontinent, comprising modern-day India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Burma (though the latter would be made a separate colony in 1937).
It is said Victoria's desire for such a title was motivated partially out of jealousy of the Imperial titles of her royal cousins Wilhelm I of Germany and Alexander II of Russia.
George VI continued to reign as King of India for two years during the short Governor-Generalships of Lord Mountbatten and of Rajagopalachari until India became a republic on 26 January 1950.

 Asia Times Online - The best news coverage from South Asia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Surprisingly, India's Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) was a bit more transparent about King Gyanendra's third trip to India since he ascended the throne in the aftermath of a mysterious palace massacre of June 1, 2001, which claimed the lives of King Birendra, Crown Prince Dipendra, and eight other members of the royal family.
In 1990, when King Birendra was facing a pro-democracy movement, India's then foreign secretary S K Singh flew into Kathmandu with a draft of a friendship treaty, which was even worse than the unequal and anachronistic treaty initialed on July 31, 1950.
While leaders of the political parties continue to criticize King Gyanendra for promoting an authoritarian regime, supporters of the monarchy are raising their voices against the anarchy and corruption unleashed by the elected leaders who ruled Nepal since the restoration of democracy in 1990.

Nearly 38 billion bills circulate from India's inaccessible mountainous North to the palm-fringed beaches of the South, and making new notes available is a huge task for the central bank.
