When reports of nearly a 100 people dying of malnutrition in the five closed tea gardens surfaced in 2014, the government sat up and implemented some stop gap measures. But even after this there seems to be no solution in sight for the thousands of workers who are "trapped" in these closed tea gardens in north Bengal.
