Worried about our gurkhaland ,god knows ………
Nice to get in touch with this site. I am from the 1977 ICSE Batch of St Augustines School, Kalimpong. The palce still haunts me even in my dreams though I have left aorund 33 years back. I would love to have contacts with my batchmates.
I visited K’pong in 2007 and immediately fell in love with the atmosphere and the surroundings. I plan to retire in K’pong so have bought a small plot of land for my future cottage (to be built). However, I worry about the people. My small head and narrow thoughts does not agree with the current G’land idea for just the Darjeeling district. I think the fight to get separated from Bengal and to establish G’land would be to merge back to Sikkim where it belonged before the British persuaded the then King of Sikkim for their Sanitorium and summer place. Now Sikkim is part of India, so it would be simpler for the people of either side to ask for a merger back and create a bigger geographical territory of Gorkhas including Bhutias, Lepchas, Dukpas etc. I Can’t understand why Darjeeling politicians are sooo narrow minded to ignore the original history and ask for just Darjeeling which is unlikely to be accepted unless unified with Sikkim.
Dear Editor, Kalimpong News, I am so very grateful for your online news which is very informative especially for us currently living outside India. I hear a lot of confusion regarding the Gorkhaland campaign and all the internal communal fights like murder, extradition etc. which are not healthy for the community as a whole. Darjeeling needs to be separated from Bengal and no matter what happened during the British reign when Darjeeling was ceded to India while Sikkim the legal and rightful owner of Darjeeling was an independent kingdom, but now Sikkim is a part of India and the Indian govt. should without having to be asked by any resident of Darjeeling should give back Darjeeling to its original owner the Sikkim. I think only Mr.DK Bomjon and his party currently seems to be in the right direction to ask for the merger of Darjeeling with Sikkim. This will solve the problem all the Gorkhas, Lepchas, Bhutias, Dukpas and any other ethnic group of the region. Well done, Mr. Bomjon, keep it up and your noble and honest effort will eventually succeed, there is no other way out of Bengal for Darjeeling.
It would be appreciated if the recent posts rather than the older posts are put on the top of the page.
