Luckily I got the opportunity to share some minutes with the 47 year old Vice Chancellor when he gave me the appointment on 28 January 2008 at the new administrative building of Sikkim University at 5 pm. I especially wanted to know the present development of Sikkim University and his opinion on the Gorkhaland movement which he has been advocating through many papers and programmes and for last many years now. Here are the excerpts of his interview:
SikkimTimes: Sir, I heard that Sikkim University would be a world-class standard University.
Prof Lama: You are right.
...
Prof Lama : See!
...
Prof Lama : To be different is our strength.
...
Prof Lama : Presently we are designing and operationalising four policies.
...
Prof Lama : We shall have an exclusive and full School of Policy Studies.
...
Prof Lama : Yes, our university will also be different in work culture from other universities.
...
Prof Lama : Let me tell you it is a national University and you know that University is class-caste-ideology and religion neutral.
...
Prof Lama : We definitely have programmes and schemes to encourage the students from the region to come and partake the benefits of higher education under Sikkim University. We are designing them. We donot want any student to be handicapped by economic background in aspiring for higher education.
SikkimTimes: Regarding Gorkhaland movement which has again appeared in Darjeeling district, do you want to say anything?
Prof Lama : What is happening in Darjeeling is something positive.
...
Prof Lama : Hundred per cent as Centre is very favorable to us and Bengal Government has morally and psychologically accepted this. Only a legislative action is required now.
...
Prof Lama : It is just an assumption and is a figment of imagination.
...
Sikkim is proud to have Prof. Lama as VC of its University.
