Tinku Ranbir In Despair At Being In London

August 5, 1907 ·

When guests were invited to the Queen’s House for a Summer Fete in August, many didn’t realise they were going to get a firsthand insight into the personal, and what seems tragic, world of the Ranbir Family, who are current residents in the Royal House. The Ranbir’s arrived in the country several years ago, at the request of the Queen.

Chan Ranbir, a kinetic engineer at Calcutta University, and heralded as the man who put “Great back into Great Briain”, developed the heart that powers the latest craze of domestic labour being championed by industry and the government.

Tinku, wife of Chan, and mother of Janav, left her personal journal in  public view. It was deemed to be part of the exhibition, and perused by members of the public.

The diary talks about being ‘wary of those around me”, and the level of politicking she is being subjected to.

Visitors to the house witnessed the rumoured ‘frosty atmosphere’ between Lady Frobisher-Pilbeam – the Queen’s Emissary to Science, and Tinku.

The House has declined to make a statement, but reiterated its position not to respond to rumour. A copy of a page from the journal was handed to the London Gazette by a member of the public.
