    Background: Sikkim is a border state with Nepal, Tibet China and East Bhutan being its neighbours. After its merger with India, a great spurt in the road building activity had begun. Hundreds of labourers (men and women) are seen busy in constructing new roads at different places.

    A 25KM new Rod from Gangtok is under construction which will join the LAGYAP Hydel Project, a new project under way for producing more electricity. The Gangtok markets though small are busy ever with customers buying all sorts of daily needs goods.
