Rupnarayanpur : A small town

In my previous post a photograph of “Panoramic view of Rupnarayanpur”, with an introduction about this small town of Burdwan District, in the Indian state of west Bengal was posted. Once Rupnarayanpur’s main source of economy was Hindustan Cables Factory (A Central PSU) where thousands of people were employed with better pay packages than the nearby Chittaranjan Locomotive Works (CLW), Railway Workshop. Therefore during its heyday in the sixties and seventies things were totally different from today’s scenario. Those days young boys used to  dream for a job in that company. In their eyes, sprawling road side bungalows and staff quarters in the neat & clean township, was enough to fuel their dreams for a job and becoming a resident of that township. In few decades things totally changed when the factory employees were not even getting their pays regularly and finally Factory gradually became  sick was closed. DSC09394_1DSC09393_1

After closure, things changed and became visible everywhere.  Now this small town has become a town of retired personnel. Because all employees, after retirement from CLW and Hindustan Cables are settled in and around Rupnarayanpur.DSC09392_1
