NORTH EAST

The name ofthe district 'Darjeeling' probably has Tibetan origin. This means where lndra's (the Hindu God) thunderbolt or sceptre rested (Dorje - the majestic thunderbolt, Ling - place, hence 'the place of the thunderbolt'). This was also the name of a Buddhist monastery once situated on the top of the Observatory Hill in Darjeeling (Mordecai and Agarwala, 1960).

 

Kalimpong is a hill station in the Indian state of West Bengal. It is located at an average elevation of 1,250 metres (4,101 ft).[2] The town is the headquarters of the Kalimpong district.[3] The Indian Army's 27 Mountain Division is located on the outskirts of the town.[4]

Kalimpong is known for its educational institutions, many of which were established during the British colonial period.[5]

 

 It used to be a gateway in the trade between Tibet and India before China's annexation of Tibet and the Sino-Indian War. Kalimpong and neighbouring Darjeeling were major centres calling for a separate Gorkhaland state in the 1980s, and more recently in 2010.
