Title

The Reflection of female tea garden worker in the literature of South Assam: Quest for new World View

Abstract

Very often we utter words like class struggle or communism. But such kind of high sounding words seem to be so baseless and fragile as they have failed to show the light of liberation to many. This holds good if we have a glance at the tea labourers, whether of Barak Valley or belonging to any part of India. In case of the tea labourers, both sides of the coin seem to depict the same picture. The tea labourers have chosen this profession for earning a square meal a day for which they toil very hard. Keeping this objective in mind, they set to work, but in return of their sweat what do they get? This is indeed a big question to reckon upon. When tea has achieved the level of a commercial crop, there seems to be no inverse improvement in the condition of the tea labourers. Rather their financial condition appears to get obliterated in perpetual darkness. Their dreams about their socio-economic upliftment have been trampled upon by a coterie comprising of the tea garden owners, the rich merchants, the contractors and the middleman. If we look towards the history of tea labourers, we will find that how the British recruited men, women and even children from various parts of the country through agents or middleman for working as labourers in the various tea gardens of Barak Valley. The tea community was not merely exploited in the general sense of the term; the roots of colonialism were spread deep down their body, which ripped them off their mental consciousness.
