I have arrived at the kingdom of darkness in the dark of the night. From my childhood I had learnt that this was the land of coolies; there was no light to be found here. Some 60 years ago, when the English merchants arrived to start their tea gardens, the one thing they relied upon was that no light had ever penetrated this area; nor would they allow any light to be lit. Bihari, Madrasi, Oriya, Santhal, Oraon people from all over the country, starving at home, had made this journey to a strange land, driven by the greed for something more. When they arrived, what they received was: a blanket, a steel thaali, and a tumbler to drink from.
