    Gorkhas are always capable to do anything in this world except in politics. An example is Smt.Nina Tsh.La.who makes us proud. Congrats Gorkha community.

  3. Nina Tsering la makes all the people of Tibetan heritage proud with this achievement.
    It’s funny that Darjeeling Chronicle doesn’t seem to know that the Tibetan word ‘La’ is a sign of respect like to ‘Ji’ in Hindi, and it’s not a surname.
