The partition of Christ Church and subsequent political upheavals of the Indian subcontinent. Church has a very majestic appearance and inside there are stained glass windows which represent faith, hope, charity, fortitude, patience and humility. Christ Church is very well maintain building but  the mechanical appendages of the Church like the clock does not function-a natural progression of entropy through time.
