After 28 years of Indian independence, the Prime Minister of Sikkim in 1975 appealed to the Indian Parliament to accede Sikkim to the Indian Union. A referendum was held and 97.5% of the votes were in favor of joining the Indian Union. Indian Army then took over the city of Gangtok. Thus, Sikkim became the 22nd State of India. Sikkim borders with only West Bengal in India and the rest of the boundary is shared by the Republic Of China, Nepal & the Kingdom of Bhutan. Little is known of Sikkim’s history before the seventeenth century but it is said that the name was derived from the Limbu word ‘Su him’, signifying “new house.” The biggest relocation of Nepalese to Sikkim started in 1816. Re-established of Sikkim by the British as an end result of its assistance amid the Anglo-Nepalese War (1814– 16). By 1817 Sikkim had turned into an accepted protectorate of Britain. The British East India Company got the city of Darjeeling from Sikkim in 1835. Sikkim is perhaps the only State in India where a large portion of the general population have their origins from other nations i.e. Nepal & Tibet. The other significant ethnic groups in Sikkim are Lepcha and Bhutia.
