East India Company Opens
The Country For Business
Britain opened for business today, as the East India Company’s campaign to lift the Government dusk till dawn curfew succeeded.
In a move that coincides with the launch of a special exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, the company is to showcase the influence of its trade and power, tracing the changing relationships between Britain and Asia.The event will be hosted by wife of the esteemed scientist Chan Ranbir - Tinku.
Mr Ranbir created the kinetic heart powering the latest version of Clockwork automata. The company claims that several trade delegations are already in talks with the Government about exporting the devices to other parts of the world.
It is known that Mrs Ranbir, who currently resides at the Queen’s House in Greenwich, does not have a Clockwork Servant in her household, but she claims to know more about the devices than your average person.
The Ranbir's were the first family to get a personal Clockwork, when they arrived in the country from India. The device called Ashwin, is currently with her son, Janav, at his boarding school.
It was initially hoped that her husband would open the event, but a spokesperson for the Department for the Advancement of Sciences said he was too busy to take time away from developing the next version of his successful kinetic heart module.
Tinku was chosen because of her knowledge of East India Company activities in India.
