Description

About the Book: A Passage To Bondage Labour In The Assam Tea Plantations

The most lucrative colonial commercial enterprise for the British Empire in India was the tea industry, concentrated in Assam and North Bengal. The coolies were brought from eastern and central India and virtually sold to the gardens at enormous profit. This was the only industry to employ women in such large numbers. By the late nineteenth century, stories of rape, abduction and high mortality caught the imagination of the new middle class that was moved to protest, petition and mobilize public opinion through two new organizations, the new Sadharan Brahmo Samaj of Keshav Chandra Sen, and the Indian Association where Surendranath Banerjea was the secretary. This new emerging civil society inaugurated the democratic process that remains with us today. As source material, the pieces reveal the gradual erosion of loyalty to the British Empire among the middle class, a key factor in the growth of nationalism. The book presents three Bengali tracts in translation that give an early formulation of the women question. Cha-kar Darpan (on the exploitation of coolies) by Dakshinacharan Chattopadhyay, focusing on the rape of a coolie woman (1875); Arkati Natak (play on a recruiter) by Harilal Bandopadhyay( 1897) and Cha-Kulir Atmakahini (autobiography of a coolie) by Jogendranath Chattopadhayay (1901) that reveal how women workers became a site on which race and nation emerge. Interesting, the plays were often followed by reform legislation, which were negated by the planters who flouted them easily.
