    Hi,
    I am from India. My maternal grandfather was from Tush Bhandar, Rangpur. He was a zamindar/ raja and his name was Raja Girindra Mohan Raychoudhary. He was an adopted son by the Raychaudhary family at Tushbhandar. Can you please help me with some more information of my grandfather. My father had visted Tushbhandar with his brother-in-law (bhai ra bhai) and brought back family heirlooms. I would be obliged for any help by you.
    Thanks & Best Regards
    Atanu Mukherji
