Times of sweet Tales
The legend goes that Thomas Cooke, who was into clock-making business in London had visited this shop in 1858 and he was satisfied with the taste of the sweets. By then, Bhim Nag’s sweet shop was more than 30-years-old and it had gained popularity by then. Cooke was surprised by the fact that such a large store had no clock and he decided to present him one.
Feeling gratified by Cooke’s generosity, Bhim Nag told him there was a problem that his workers didn’t understand a word of English or the numerals in that language and whether he could provide them a clock face with numbers in the Bengali script instead. Cooke decided to abide by the idea and sent a sample to Cooke and Kelvey’s factory in England where the clock was infused with swiss machinery and printed with BANGLA বাংলা numerals.
