तारेमाम शरण,
सप्पै सुरक्षित होस् ।

अहिले सम्मको जानकारी अनुसार सन्खुवासभा मा ४ वटा कार्यालय भत्केको छ । लाजिम्पाटमा दुई बटुवा पर्खाल भात्किएकोमा परेको समाचार छ ।

सिक्किम केन्द्रबिंदू रहेको र संखुवासभाको प्रारम्भिक समाचारले पूर्बी नेपालको पहाडी भूभाग मा खती भएकाइ हुनु पर्छ । सप्पै मिलेर प्रार्थना गरौं । धनजन क्षति नहोस् ।

प्रश्ने साथी,

प्रश्न त गर्यौ तर तिम्रो प्रश्नको पारा देखेर दिक्क लाग्यो, साझाले तिमीले लेखेको कुन शब्दलाई फिल्टर गर्‍यो भन्ने कुरा म सहजै अनुमान लगाउन सक्छु । एउटा कुरा के बुझिराख भने प्राकृतिक प्रकोपले को नेपाली को न नेपाली भनेर छुट्याउदैन । कहाँदेखि कहाँसम्म नेपाल र कहाँदेखि कहाँसम्म भारत भन्ने पनि छुट्याउदैन । प्रकृतिले मान्छेले कोरेको भूगोलको सिमानालाई स्वीकार गर्दैन । फरक केले पार्छ भने कुन देशका मान्छेहरु यस्तो प्राकृतिक प्रकोपको सामाना गर्न बढी तयार भएर बसेका छन् भन्ने । नेपालमा आएको जस्तो भूकम्प जापानमा गयो भने तिनीहरुलाई केही पनि फरक पर्दैन । यसरी पनि यो समय नेपाली र ननेपाली भनेर हल्ला गरेर बस्ने होइन । कहाँ कति क्षति भयो र कहाँ कहाँ उद्दार गर्न आवश्यक छ भनेर चासो लिने हो र सकेको सहयोग पठाउने हो । हैन तिमीलाई सिक्किमको नाम किन लेखिस् भन्ने जान्न जरुरी भएको भए चाँही एउटा कुरा भन्छु सुन । हरेक भूकम्पको एउटा उद्गम बिन्दु हुन्छ जसलाई हामी केन्द्रबिन्दु भन्छौ । अहिले नेपालमा गएको भूकम्पको केन्द्रबिन्दु सिक्किम हो । तलको लिन्कमा हेर्यौ भने यो भूकम्पको केन्द्रबिन्दु कहाँ रहेछ भन्ने थाहा पाउँछौ ।

Thats the deal with Sikkim.

 Jiminy Christmas, just asked a straightforward question. Didn't expect a sermon. I asked whether Sikkim was mostly Nepali or 'Tibetan' ethnicity.

Sikkim's population is mostly of Nepali origin, I would say more than 75%.  

But having said that, what exactly is "Nepali Origin"?  My first statement implies that Nepalis immigrated to Sikkim, which in essence is not true.  Who is to say that Rais, Tamangs, Gurungs, Limbus, [Disallowed String for - castist reference]s, [Disallowed String for - castist reference]s, [Disallowed String for - castist reference]s have not been living in Sikkim as long as traditionally considered native Lepchas?  

That aside, thank God the fatalities and damages have been rather minimal considering the magnitude of the quake, not that it is any solace to the families who lost their loved ones.  May their soul rest in peace and may their loved ones  find strength in this time of grief.

Death toll at 81 for quake in India, Nepal, China

 
 

Thousands of terrified survivors of a Himalayan earthquake that killed 81 people and rattled parts of India, Nepal and China crowded Tuesday into shelters and relatives' homes or stayed out in the open for fear of aftershocks.

Soldiers used dynamite and earthmovers to clear landslides on highways through the steep valleys linking the worst-hit northeastern Indian state of Sikkim to the rest of India. They managed to clear a path to Mangan, closest to the epicenter of Sunday's 6.9-magnitude quake, but many other communities remained cut off and authorities fear the death toll could rise once rescuers reach them.

Indian army helicopters ferried rescuers and dropped food and supplies to still-inaccessible villages in Sikkim, a sparsely populated and almost entirely mountainous region that was an independent protectorate before becoming an Indian state in 1975.

Residents of the state, which borders Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan and the Chinese region of Tibet, have been spooked by at least five aftershocks since Sunday, with the strongest a magnitude 5.3.

Dawa Lendup Lepcha, 25, a university student in Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim, said that even though the room he rents was not badly damaged, he was too nervous to stay there alone and moved in with a cousin.

"Even now we feel scared. If a car makes a loud sound or there is some other sudden noise I feel very scared," he said.

Thousands of others moved out of their homes in Gangtok and the neighboring villages and took shelter in the open grounds of a university building and a soccer stadium. Many were sleeping outside, huddling under blankets to ward off the cold. Nighttime temperatures have been about 17 degrees Celsius (62 fahrenheit).

"The damage to houses is substantial. Many thousands of houses have collapsed while others have suffered structural damage," said Amit Patro, editor of the English language Sikkim Express newspaper.

Fearing his own home wasn't safe, Patro moved with his mother, wife and two children to a friend's house.

"I don't know how long we will camp with friends. For a few more days at least, till I can convince my family that it's safe to move back," he said.

The quake killed at least 50 people in Sikkim and caused extensive damage to homes and buildings, said the state's top official, Karma Gyatso.

Another 12 people were killed in West Bengal and six others in Bihar, India's Home Secretary R. K. Singh told reporters. The earthquake also killed six people in Nepal and seven in Tibet.

Singh said rescue efforts were being hampered by heavy rain and landslides which had cut off large swaths of Sikkim.

Lepcha said he had only managed to speak with his family in northern Sikkim twice since Sunday's earthquake and while his relatives were safe, he said there were few details because the phone connections were very erratic.

The region has been hit by major earthquakes in the past, including in 1950 and 1897.
