THE ROLE OF THE NATIVE ASSAMESE

home


Iris Macfarlane tells of how many of the native Assamese had been removed from the areas where tea gardens were constructed, but some became clerks, doctors and teachers on the tea estates. When the British evacuated the estates during the Chinese invasion of 1963 the Assamese 'babus' ran them with great ability, suggesting that they had always done much of the actual work on tea estates.
