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

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.

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.

Political parties need to adapt to the people, and if the Left still cannot grasp that, its chances of survival fall by the day.

The question that arises by default: was supporting Mamata Banerjee a launch pad for Anna Hazare’s 2019 political plans?

An exaggerated and fiery figure in West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee is best known for her paranoid histrionics and periodic outbursts during speeches against the Maoists.

I get goosebumps just by thinking about the incident. I am unable to express my angst here. I just cannot write it down in an article.

In order to further their own political ambitions, students will stop at nothing; they will vandalise, kill and destroy the very institutions that have given them that legitimacy of being students.
