In this provocative afterword, senior scholar and Vice Chancellor of Sikkim University Tanka Subba comments on Darjeeling Reconsidered’s implications for Darjeeling Studies. Subba draws on his own life and work in the Darjeeling hills to productively extend and critique the conversations initiated by the book’s authors. Touching on a range of issues, including Darjeeling’s questionable postcoloniality, its importance in the shifting geopolitics of South Asia, and the long-term prospects of Gorkahaland, Subba leverages his considerable expertise to offer new insight into Darjeeling’s past, present, and future.
