Lord Northbrook

A recent judgment, Gurdas Singh v. State of Punjab, [Civil Appeal No. 6691-6692 of 2015] mentions Lord Northbrook as the one who laid the foundation stone of Mohindra College, Patiala in 1874. Thomas George Baring, 1st Earl of Northbrook, was the Viceroy of India between 1872 and 1876.

Francis Thomas Baring, 6th Baron of Northbrook, the great grandson of Lord Northbrook, is the current trustee and executor of the will of Raja Bahadur Sardar Singh of Khetri, the grandson of Maharaja Ajit Singh. Maharaja Ajit Singh was a disciple of Swami Vivekananda.

Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Smriti Mandir, Khetri – a dream, a vision of Raja Bahadur Sardar Singh – is currently under renovation. The Khetri Trust would love the Mission to have it all. But for the endless litigation, Khetri is in jeopardy. We call upon the Lords.

1st Earl of Northbrook
