Aseena paryo!

Gangtok, Mar 22. A thunder squall descended on Gangtok and some other parts of East Sikkim this afternoon. Cars on the move had to switch on their headlights as the day turned into night at only around 4 p.m. in the evening. The dark clouds also let loose a brief but heavy shower of hail. According to some reports, the hailstorm has damaged crops in some parts of the district.
