Thomas Snodgrass entered the East India Company as a 'Writer' or clerk at the age of 18. Through perseverance he became a 'Collector' a tax collector for Ganjam District in Eastern India. He built a waterside mansion with stabling for horses and elephants and a tiny stone building on a rocky outcrop on the lake.

His accounts mysteriously sank on a boat in the lake and he lost his position. He later appeared outside India House dressed as a streep sweeper to plead for his lost pension!
