He lived in Rohtak, and was the Pricipal of a College there. His daughter lives in Canada, and he visited Canada often. He brought a depth of vision and in-depth detailed research to his work. The list of references and bibliography quoted is extremely extensive to put it mildly. The footnotes to his reference make interesting reading, for they are monographs in themselves, which can and do stand-alone.
He brought a lot of original thinking to his research. When the historiography of Jat history if written, Professor Pauria's name will stand out as one of the leading historians of his times.
The book, originally printed by man than Press in Rohtak, Haryana, is now out of print.
