Handwritten Sikkim Herald issue you never knew about....

Sikkim Herald is the official newsweekly of the Government of Sikkim published by the Department of Information and Public Relations has been a regular feature of the State ever since its inception in the early 1956. Sikkim Herald comes out in thirteen different state languages, viz. English, Nepali, Newar, Lepcha, Gurung, Limbu, Tamang, Sunwar, Manger, Sherpa, Bhutia, Rai and Tibetan and printed at Goverment Printing press of Gangtok.

In his self made museum of Ganesh Pradhan at Rhenock, i came across two issues of Sikkim Herald that really pulled off my fantasy. The first issue published in 1959 was a rare, i got to hear from him that even the IPR Department is looking after. He is really proud of it and showed me with a distinct pride.



Another rare copy of his Sikkim Herald issues include the one from 1969 that was handwritten, it is more than fascinating who did it and why was it required to be handwritten...

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)
