NEW YORK, NY – One butler puts a new spin on age old rags to riches story!
Indra Tamang didn’t enjoy many luxuries growing up. His teenage years were filled with tending to a farm in a Nepalese village without running water or electricity. He didn’t enjoy an educational system as he barely learned to write and lived in a straw, mud and stone house with his parents before landing a hotel job in the capital of Katmandu.
While at his hotel job, Tamang befriended a well-to-do hotel patron and he began traveling the world and meeting countless high profile individuals such as Andy Warhol, John Lennon and Patti Smith. He had the privilege of living in wonderful places such as Paris and the Greek island of Crete. Now his life has come full circle and Tamang finds himself a rich man.
The Associated Press reports that a Manhattan woman bequeathed Tamang her entire estate – including two apartments in the famed Dakota building off Central Park and her Russian surrealist art collection. For 36 years, Ruth Ford and her brother, Charles, relied on “Indra darling” to tend to their activities on three continents. He was always present in the apartments he inherited, available around the clock as Ford’s health deteriorated.
She passed away in August at 98, leaving nothing to her estranged daughter and two grandchildren. Her three-bedroom apartment is on the market for $4.5 million. Her art collection includes works by the late artist Pavel Tchelitchew whose portrait of Ruth Ford sold in April at Sotheby’s for nearly $1 million.
Tamang hopes to archive Ford’s artwork, writings and films, and to organize exhibits of photographs – Ford’s and his own.
“I thank my mother and father for putting me on this Earth,” he said. “And thank you, Mississippi, for bringing Charles to me. And thanks to him and Ruth for making me a New Yorker! And thank you, America!”
