Maniktalla Christian Cemetery & Toru Dutt

Maniktalla Christian Cemetery!! Lost Cemetery

I was little astonished during my visit to Maniktalla Christian Cemetery, in every square inch of graveyard there is impression of negligence and surprisingly cemetery is still in use. People those who stays within approximate 2/3 minute walking distance they even not aware that there is a graveyard. A family stayed in the graveyard compound but as per their statement they are not officially related to the Maniktalla Christian Cemetery. Only one person is appointed officially to look after the graves, but it seems, no take care is taken place by the person. The whole area overgrown with shrubs, weeds, trees and almost all the graves are broken. As it seems to me tombs are vandalized and most of the walls are broken, it needs real attention to restore the graves and for beatification of the area so that visitors can visit the place and. It was really tough for me to go inside and search for graves.

Tried a lot to find out the year of establishment of the Maniktalla Christian Cemetery, could not find as nobody is aware of it.
