Independent Sikkim's milepost

The above photograph shows a rare mile-post from the old transport days of Independent Sikkim found lying along side the National Highway 31A near Shantinagar, Singtam. Built during the British influence in Sikkim shows Rangpo 8 mile with the arrow pointed towards left side i.e. west direction, while the distance towards Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim is pointed 17 mile towards east.
So accurate was the calculation then that even in this date the transformation of 17 mile from Singtam to Gangtok falls the same when it is converted into kilometer i.e. 27.2km.

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)
