Take a break from SCIENCE….all those failing experiments and relentless troubleshooting. Read this intriguing story originating from the heart of Northeast. It will rejuvenate your senses to start fresh on lab bench!!
A string of stories sprout like wild grass on the hills of Sikkim and people's rebellion against the Chogyal regime. But these stories are soon uprooted band tethered to the turbulent politics unfolding in the state.
Peace returns, like always, but not the past. Chogyal loses his power to rule and life easily settles around changed polarities. Uneasily though, people wonder about the consequences of their choices.
Three decades later, the story reopens accidentally and it seems there is a glimmer of a second chance. Long forgotten tracks are retraced, a purpose is rediscovered, an apology may finally find voice. But what about things that once lost can never be found?
