A Green Legacy

Assam situated in the easternmost sentinel of India is endowed with exquisite fauna and flora. The lush green forest, blue mountains, rippling water bodies, wild animals and birds are the highlight features of this region. Adding to the green serenity, are the age old tea plantations. The British, they came, conquered and left, leaving behind in this region, a green legacy i.e. the tea estates. These tea gardens are the integral part of the most flourishing industry of Assam providing sustenance to a huge population in the state.

A trip to this part of the country would be incomplete if one does not pay a visit to these tea estates. As one travels towards upper Assam one can experience the thrill of travelling through long patches of greenery extending beyond the horizon. The topography of the land provides an undulating picture of the bushes, as if a green carpet has been laid down. Here and there are well laid labour lines, factories and the manager’s bungalows. Towards the evening one might hear the drum beats rolling out from the lines to brush of the days toil by merry making.

Just as the tea cup brings in a cheer to millions of people around the world, here’s only hoping that this age old industry flourishes, overcoming all difficulties for a long long time to come.
