Light at the end of the tunnel

On a chilly morning in December 1907, Weld and Srinivas made for the riverbed where the Subarnarekha crossed the Bengal Nagpur Railway branch. After plodding downstream for a while, they sighted a black trap-dike crossing the river diagonally, thereby making a perfect pick-up weir. They were wandering in the vicinity of Sakchi - at the confluence of the rivers Subarnarekha and Kharkai which together would never run dry - and a few kilometers away could be sighted the Kalimati railway station. This brought the triumphant end of the 25 year long saga.

On 27th February 1908, the first stake was driven into the soil of Sakchi.
