Growing up Muslim in West Bengal under the Left regime, the political space was always sanitised of any traces of identity politics.

An interesting phenomenon has gripped Kolkata and some parts of West Bengal. Residents are leaving blue water filled bottles hanging outside their doors.

Violence broke out in Kaliachak after a mob protesting alleged remarks by self-styled right-wing activist Kamlesh Tiwari had an altercation with the police. 
A tea picker collects tea leaves at a tea estate at Naxalbari in the north eastern state of West Bengal, September 3, 2004. Tea exports had plummeted from 200 million kg in 2002 to 180 million kg last year. The slump in prices and exports was largely attributed to inferior quality of tea being produced by various Indian gardens, besides the loss of Pakistan and Iraq as potential buyers. The Indian tea industry had projected an estimated production of about 850 million kilograms this year. - RTXMWX4

What every exquisite cup of tea fails to narrate is the plight and agony of those workers who have been heavily exploited and marginalized for generations.

We organized a peaceful protest against RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's visit to Kolkata. Little did we realise that we would be attacked by 5000 workers.

Despite some stop-loss measures that the incumbent chief minister might have made, the condition of the workers living in the tea estates remains abysmal.

Krishna Prasad Jana, a BA third year student of Sabang Sajanikanta Mahavidyalaya, succumbed to injuries, after being allegedly beaten up by members of TMCP.
For the 15 days, families in West Bengal have been dealing with mass flooding. Locals say it's the worst flooding in 15 years. There are an estimated 13,200 villages in just West Bengal alone affected, with the worst affected district being Bardhaman, where more than 333,000 people are directly affected. In all of India, an estimated 10 million are affected.

But it’s not on news stations. It’s not being discussed in public spheres. There’s no mention in newspapers. And I can’t figure out why.

For the last five days, I’ve taken tiny hand-dug boats to reach villages cut-off – their road access lost due to the rising waters.

The army has been deployed in Bhardman district to shepherd the panic stricken crowd into 1537 relief camps.
