Today, two students of the Aadarsh High School here are getting married to each other.

Rajkumar and Seema are class 9 and 8 students who are getting married at the Lohra Toli Bast in McCluskiegunj today.

According to the Principal of their school, neither of them are older than 15 years of age.

It is shocking to know that nobody seems to have any objection. I mean the local public. Nobody seems to realise that this will turn into a trend.

McCluskiegunj - When the Maoists ruled...

Today, McCluskiegunj has a police station with a big no. of cops that patrol the area and the residents are at ease and living in peace and harmony.

When the Maoists were ruling the place, right eight o'clock meant night. Nobody was supposed to be outdoors after eight pm. Life was not how people wanted it to be in a place like heaven. Fear was in all those who live here. The place was hell in this sense.

Now, after the Maoists have been chased out by the police everybody is leading their lives without fear. It's not night before ten or even eleven. Lovely!

But there is something that cannot be denied.

The Maoists protected the forests. They warned villagers that anybody caught cutting trees would be punished severely.

Everyday villagers are cutting trees and stacking for firewood. The forests are getting bare. Soon there won't be any forests at this rate.

The Fear of being punished has gone with the Maoists!

Konkona Sen Sharma in McCluskiegunj?

Barely two years after being awarded the “Padma Shri” award, Indian filmmaker, screenwriter, actress and director Aparna Sen came down to McCluskiegunj.

Aparna Sen was here with her team at her owned bungalow situated in Konka village for shooting of a Bengali film. After shooting, the entire team enjoyed their time here. They partied, gambled, played loud music and enjoyed themselves while off set.

But all good things don’t end well. And so didn’t this visit of Aparna Sen.
There was a sudden change in atmosphere. The sound of gun shots, Music shut off, screaming, a few local guests fleeing, and a dead body to make things worse.

A Death in The Gunj (McCluskiegunj). This is to be the reason why Konkona Sen Sharma, Indian Actress and director and the daughter of Aparna Sen is to come down to McCluskiegunj by the end of this month..

Konkona Sen Sharma is making a film based on this incident occurred back in 1979 I believe.
