       We want Gorkhaland !!   We want Gorkhaland !!   We want Gorkhaland !!

The slogan can be heard on the streets of Darjeeling. The Gorkha community is screaming it out loud to reach people in other parts of the nation. They demand to separate from West Bengal and have an independent state for the Gorkha people. The protest was triggered a month back when the state government ordered to teach Bengali as the compulsory subject in all schools across the state.The voice that was raised as demands has now turned into the violent protest and has claimed a huge loss of public property and lives.
