Anmol comes from Kalimpong and he completed his schooling from Kumudini Homes. Following which, he did his undergraduate degree in Political Science at St. Joseph’s College, Darjeeling. He then joined Sikkim University for his Master’s degree in the fields of International Relations/Politics, and completed MPhil research from Jawaharlal Nehru University.

He has won numerous research grants, and has presented papers and showcased his research internationally, including at the prestigious Harvard University.

He says, “I lost my father when I was at college and I thought of leaving my college purely because of financial reason. This also became my inspiration to earn pocket money with my hobby such as paintings and sketches. I also believe in God which gave me the purpose to live when there seems nothing.”

Coming from a middle-class family from our hills, to excelling in the world of academic, Anmol has proven that – we the Gorkhalis can achieve the highest degrees of perfection, if only we put our heart to it.

When asked for how to excel in life Anmol Mukhia has a simple philosophy, “Work hard and study hard… make books your best friend which will always guide you in your life… परिश्रम नै सबै भन्दा ठुलो कुरो रैछ…”

Hopefully his hard work and excellence is something which will inspire thousands of our youth to follow on your footsteps and excel in their respective fields of choice. As you head out to China, you will not only be representing India, but you will also represent the changing façade of our Gorkhali society… you will also represent the resurgent Gorkhali youths of India, who are re-writing the way world perceives our community.
