A Hindu serves as caretaker of a Christian graveyard!

Located in Gulzarbagh area in Patna, this cemetery built in October 1763 is considered to be the oldest Christian graveyard in the city. It houses the graves of almost 80 Britishers who died while fighting against the army of Mir Qasim, the Nawab of Bengal in 18th century.

Suneel Kumar though a Hindu looks after this Christian graveyard and keeps it cleans. He says doing so gives him peace.

Cleaning up of the area and lighting of candles here by Suneel also showcases his belief in interfaith harmony and brotherhood.
