The Thorpe Family of McCluskiegunj

This is the Thorpe family of McCluskiegunj. They own property here which is being claimed by the Malhaar tribe.
The old caretaker expired and her kin took charge and care of the bungalow and property measuring nearly 7 acres since then.
Now, it is necessary for the current caretaker to get in contact with the owners in order to save the property from being snatched away, but the info about Robert Thorpe is that he is in Australia and that's all. No phone no. or email or surface address is available with anybody here in the Gunj.

Train at the Crossing

Many students and teachers were delayed due to wagons being halted at the level crossing this morning. It is said that there is a problem with the tracks.
The wagons stood between the crossing for nearly half an hour and was later moved just enough to allow traffic.
An over head bridge is needed here soon because once the bridge over the Damodar river opens officially, there will be huge traffic and traffic jams.

Annual Visitor

This creature has been visiting the place in the month of July every year. People offer it food when it sits on their roofs. It is very friendly.
This pic was taken at Dennis Meredith's place.

Good News for McCluskiegunjians!

The dreaded coal business that had just started to function at McCluskiegunj railway station has been put on hold. The pollution department needs to get the credit for it.
We Anglo Indians have been against the siding and have been trying all sources to put a stop to it. Apart from some Non Anglo Indians, most are now in support for the Coal Siding. Yesterday, a group of the siding supporters protested against the stay order passed by the High Court by shouting slogans against the Anglo Indian M.L.A. of Jharkhand and the stay order.
We hope this status of the siding remains for good.
