Thanks for your concern man. Actually I have been out of Gangtok since about 3 weeks and will not be returning until another month. However, after communication was restored, I was in touch with all my family members and nothing serious happened to the house(s) except some cracks on walls and a bit of a shaky foundation, which is being repaired. One of my cousins serving in the Army, has been sent back there from J&K, leading a small contingent since he knows northern Sikkim quite well apart from local soldier there.
However, some of my extended neighborhood has had tragic sufferings. Please pray for them.
