Postmodern discourses, with their emphasis on deconstruction, multiplicity, and questioning of fixed truths, have influenced various aspects of cultural, social, and intellectual life in Sikkim, a state in northeastern India. While Sikkim is known for its rich traditional heritage, the postmodern lens has offered new perspectives and avenues for expression. It is important to note that while postmodern ideas have made an impact in Sikkim, they exist alongside and interact with traditional beliefs, customs, and ways of life. The interplay between tradition and postmodernism adds depth and complexity to the cultural landscape of Sikkim, creating a unique blend of influences and perspectives.
