Report :- Pashyore , another village in peril
To those interested , Pashyore bustee (village) is in Kalimpong subdivision, somewhere below Chibo bustee and above the Teesta.
A local guide (Mr Pradip Chetrri) took me to the most affected areas...
There are extensive and huge cracks all through parts Pashyore village and even though the whole area inclusive of Chibo falls into the so called "sinking area", a villager in Pashyore whom I spoke to (Kumar Thapa) swore he had never experienced this sort of devastation earlier in his 44 yrs.
The point is, these cracks on the mountains have appeared in Pashyore, Dalapchand, Kankebung, Bhalukhop, Alaichikhop, Sherpa gaon, Chibo, Dhong dara and probably in so many other places I have not visited....
are the mountains trying to tell us something?
I think it is time we listened.
