Heavenly Sikkim: My home in Himalayan India

Sandwitched between three countries, Sikkim, the 22nd state of India, is a small (0.22% the size of India) Himalayan paradise.

Its mountains, alpine lakes, orchids, monastries and peace-loving people provide it with unparalled beauty.

Sikkim is my home. I was born in the wards of Sir Thutob Namgyal Memorial Hospital in Gangtok (the state capital) and have grown up seeing the majestic Mount Kanchendzonga (the third highest mountain in the world) from my home window and school.

In the first half of 2011, I got the opportunity to write a monthly column (see below) for the Talk Sikkim magazine, which was immensely satisfying for me. In September 2011, I’d built a website to draw attention to the September 18 earthquake.
