If you remember Darjeeling as a visitor or a resident, have some special memories or experiences, do share that here. I can lock that in forever rather than letting it fade away with time. I have myself shared many of my own memories and experiences of Darjeeling throughout this site.
Hello Raj, What a wonderful surprise!! I am able to contact with someone from Darj. I can most certainly share with you about my beautiful childhood spent at Darj. The years fromwe did not have a car, so we walked everywhere. Whenever we went to Siliguri, Sikkim or Mirik to see our families, we went on a Jeep.
Returning home from the market, my mother used to rent a pony for me from the Chowrasta to go down to Bhutia Busti where we lived. It would be a special treat for me. We used to buy loose white plain paper for our arithmetic classes, and brown paper to cover all our books.
I used to buy wooden "Bhara Kutta" wooden pots to pretend to set up a kitchen. My mother used to buy "Lachha" for her long hair. Along with these, we would also buy some "fermented" leaves to make "Jad" or white fermented rice sake.
We also went to eat "Momo" and "Thuka" in a popular store. I wish I could remember its name. I hope the stores are still there. Everytime I walked by this bakery to and from school, I used to get a wonderful aroma of items being baked!
It was simply heaven. My school was Nepali Girls H. It was close to Trumbul H. We had English Principals, named Ms. We learned many Bible stories and songs from them. The teacher taught needle works.
Sungmeet came first in the class, Purna came second and I came third in almost every class.

My visit to Darjeeling was "bliss in a swirl of haze" -- I loved this hill station, famous for tea gardens, a mighty mountain god and Raj era graciousness. There are many hill stations at the Southern slopes of the Himalayas. Nainital, Mussoorie, Shimla and Darjeeling are very famous out of them. There the people enjoy the cool climate and scenery. Thousands of rich people and Government officers go there. During the last summer, my father was advised by the doctor to take my [ ].
I often wonder where my friends are. Going home from the school, I used to pass beautiful cottages, book store of one of my grand uncles, and of course the Rink Cinema Hall. After passing the Bank, Lloyd Bank, and Capital Cinema, I used to head back home through many English built homes, and also many Tibetan sayings on the stone walls.
I used to offer flowers and pray on each Budha, especially during my exams!! I guess they were listening to me. When I got home, I used to watch and enjoy the view of Kanchanjunga from our small patio garden.
We could easily see the horse race Lebong through the binocular from my home. We used to go there when they used costumes and danced. We used to eat "Kabseo" and "butter rice". They were the most desired food of the ceremony for me.
I loved them all. We, being Tamang, went to a Tamang Gumba, which was somewhere below the railway station.A Jocelyn Ajami | David LaRue Alexander | Bruce Amble | Doreen Ambrose-Van Lee | Gwen Ames | Michael Eddie Anderson | Candace Armstrong | Elana Ashley | Susan B.
