Correct and excuse me if I am wrong. I am putting these thoughts in a wider perspective . My words may not sound politically and sentimentally correct but sometimes it is important to bring bitter things on the table, it sometimes works wonders ...dabai titoh huncha tara niko banaucha.. I would like to get opinions form people because I foresee a future of great rift if this sinister division plot of Mamta have to have a long and deep political and social impact. Speculations and rumours are rife about Kalimpong becoming a separate district. That is a good news for the people of Kalimpong, because that would herald a lot of good things from employment to administrative convenience. I am not anti Kalimpong or pro Darjeeling , I am just a die hard Gorkhalander . For ages Darjeeling has been like an elder sister where major chunk of administrative control is centered . In some way or the other Kalimpong is somewhat under the shadow of her elder sibling. But this arrangement had a strong and positive impact in keeping this two hills and its people united. In this fight for statehood , Darjeeling has been leading Kalimpong, Kurseong, Mirik from the forefront as a leader of this united front.
My fear is ; If Kalimpong is made a district, which means it will have its own administrative setup, from D.M to S. P and everything . In other words it will come out of the shadow of her elder sibling and be independent of her.
|Question not for Darjeelingay or Kalimpongay but for Gorkhalander|
Please do drop in your opinions not as a Darjeelingay or Kalimpongay but as a true Gorkhalander.
