- 30% of Nepalis have never been to Nepal One of the strangest things I learnt about Nepal is that for the last 150 years a sizeable proportion of the culturally Nepali population has lived outside Nepal. The whole of Sikkim, and Indian mountain areas like Darjeeling and Kalimpong have Nepali speakers as the majority. There is a dream of a Nepali "Gorkkaland" stretching all the way from East Nepal to Bhutan, but I think it's totally unrealistic to expect Delhi to accept something which may restrict movement of the Indian Army to it's borders as China has invaded before in 1973. The fear is that if border states have too much independence they may face pressure from China and this chipping away at the edges would threaten the security of the whole state.
