The letter, penned by Friedrich Trump in 1905 and published for the first time this week in the German magazine Bild, was addressed to Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria asking to stay in Germany.

The elder Trump left the country at the age 16 to seek his fortune in the United States. He did well in the western U.S., making money running taverns and brothels during a gold rush in Canada’s Yukon territory, according to the Washington Post.

According to one source, Friedrich Trump “mined the miners.”

One establishment, the Arctic, apparently had quite a reputation. “For single men, the Arctic has the best restaurant,” wrote a journalist at the Yukon Sun newspaper. “But I would not advise respectable women to go there to sleep as they are liable to hear that which would be repugnant to their feelings and uttered, too, by the depraved of their own sex.”

However, by leaving Germany, Trump violated the law requiring mandatory military service.

This became a problem with he returned to Germany in the early 1900s.

During one of his trips, he met his future wife, but when she got homesick and wanted to return to Germany, his legal troubles took center stage despite his pleas.

“We have been waiting for this World Cup. Indians come in large numbers during the World Cup and we wanted these eateries to be a melting point,” he added.

According to Cutting Edge Events, FIFA’s official sales agency in India for the 2018 World Cup, India is amongst the top 10 countries in terms of number of match tickets bought.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
