Munjoul Indigo Concern: a piece of colonial and industrial revolution history in a Bihari village I

This post has been in the making for a long time.

There is one place is my village that has fascinated me for long time. You cross the river and within 5 min there are some old buildings on the left, right in front of the village college. Grayish orange walls, bricks falling off and weeds taking over. The buildings are spread across an area the size of 2-3 football fields. Sometimes you see cows grazing there and sometimes goats.
