Some did, others didn’t


GANGTOK, Nov. 7: People misused the declared half-holiday for the employees and students by the state government to watch ‘Governor’s Golf Cup’ final match in Gangtok today.
However, some were seen in the movie hall, while others were loitering in the park and others busy at their homes. “This is not fair as people are misusing their half-holiday given by the state government to watch Governor’s Gold Cup since the quarter finals,” said Mr Sanjay Malhotra, a central government employee. But on the other hand, hundreds were stranded on the NH-31. Mr Bijoy Thapa, a hard-core football fan could not go to witness the match as the taxi drivers had suspended services for 90 minutes, to see the match being played. “I am a taxi driver but I am very keen on football so today I did not drive during the match,” said Mr Damber Rai. “This match is held once in a year so I never miss it specially when any team from Nepal plays,” he added. In the match today, number of teenagers and other locals were cheering their favourite team with great gusto. Even police guards and volunteers deployed in some corners of the stadium opened the gate for the students’ football fans to enjoy the match free. n SNS

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
