Shivansu Malaker served as a Sergeant of Gurkha Rifles. While detached to The Kings African Rifles in East Africa during the Great War he met Miss Wraight and later Mr. Höllenstadt-Fürchtberg under most bizarre and unworldly circumstances. Shivansu was honorably released from service follwing the war and traveled to England to work for Miss Wraight.
Shivansu is the son of Krish and Ema (father and mother, respectively) and brought them much honor when he was accepted into the Gurkha Rifles.
Shivansu’s oldest brother Parul will be taking over the family farm and trading business, it has grown since Shivansu had been sending money home throughout his service. His other older brother Prabia died leaving behind a wife, Kritee, and an almost grown daughter Kulnja. Shivansu’s sister Rohin, only a year older, has married into a fine family. They have two girls and are expecting another child very soon.
Shivansu’s little brother Upendra, has twice honored their family by also being accepted into the Gurkha Rifles. Shivansu has told him of my travels and experiences, even the extraordinary ones and prays he does not find such things.
