    Jacobabd once a developed city in the Sind Province of Pakistan owes its name to Brigadier General C.B(11 January 1812—6 December 1858), A British Army officer, still highly regarded and respected by the locals of the area . He died of ill health at Jacobabad on 6 December 1858. He was buried in the town where his grave has been well-maintained by the locals for whom he retains a cult status, according to BBC correspondent Mark Tully locals believe he has saintlike status.

    The old man in this portrait is the care taker of John Jacob’s grave ( Jacobian Christian Cemetery) for the last 20-25 years and has dedicated his life for this purpose only.
