Earthquake

More News
We heard on Sunday night that although tremors are continuing to trouble residents of Darjeeling, there have been no injuries and no major damage to buildings. We are very grateful for the concern shown by our supporters here who have been phoning and emailing to enquire about the situation. This is the second time recently that an earthquake has struck the region.
