The BBC World Service’s Claire Bowes interviews Kalimpong citizens Mrs. Sharda Mukhia & her sister regarding their family’s personal tragedy during the Gorkhaland agitation in the 80′s.

Recalling the past atrocities, tragedies, and sacrifices will hopefully help frame a perspective for the current unrest in the area.

Appreciate the bravery of this family in sharing their heart wrenching story. Sadly, despite all these years justice has not been served and these ultimate sacrifices seem to all have been in vain.
