Sikkim Documentary by Satyajit Ray to come in DVD


Anyone interested to go through the old lifestyles of the small Kingdom of Sikkim will surely be delighted to know that the much awaited "Sikkim" documentary by noted film maker Satyajit Ray will hit the market soon in DVDs and VCDs. Shot in 1971 at different part of Sikkim and stories of the very documentary being banned and later on gossips of the lost negatives of the much talked documentary makes the work more interesting for Sikkim lovers to search for this master piece.
I am fortunate to watch this documentary last year when it was shown at Vajra Cinema Hall at Gangtok. Watching the Chogyal and Gyalmo moving on the wide screen of the cinema hall made it more appealing to audiences like me who were not born in Independent Sikkim. Truly each scene that illustrated the old Sikkim gave me a feel of that era when this land was free of noises and crowds that surrounds today.
Just watch the above video of Gangtok City, the then small capital of the Kingdom of Sikkim. It surely makes a nostalgic for those sections of the crowds who belong to that period. Thanks Satyajit Ray and offcourse to our Gyalmo for a thought to make a documentary on Sikkim. Thanks once again.

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)
