    Paul, unfortunately he is unable to get photos from Ranchi as it is too far from him, and unfortunately he has no friends of contacts near Ranchi. I have already asked him as I have a few there too.

    Hi Tony,

    That's a very generous offer. I'll have a peak and see if I have anyone at Gauhati WC and get back to you.

    Thanks for posting.
