Update on Darjeeling's Political Situation

Here is an update to the latest situation in Darjeeling and the Hills of North Bengal. The good news is that the pro Gorkhaland agitators have assured a strike -free holiday season.


The other piece of good news which will definitely cheer the tourists is that the DHR toy train will once again be drawn by the heritage steam engines, instead of the newly introduced diesel engines from Oct 19th onwards.
