The tea gardens in the outskirts of Assam are under the flood waters. The labourers who work there have been rendered homeless and jobless. While they have moved into a makeshift shelter on a high ground, have got little assistance from the government. "This high ground where we are staying is actually a cremation ground. We have received no help from garden management or the state government in this hour of crisis," said Raju Mahato, a tea garden labourer from Mahima tea estate in Assam's Golaghat district, 350 km away from Guwahati.
