About this eBook
The present work entitled “Plantation Sociology of North-East India” is a pioneering research study. It highlights the ways how the plantation workers of North- East India have been marginalized from all corners of the society. Since the present research falls under the category of labour stidies relating to the plantation workers in the age of globalization, it highlights the ways and means of marginalization of workers in the golden era of globalization. The study highlights the fate of tea garden workers, their present being as marginalized human resource capital and their urge to become the integral part of mainstream human resource capital of the country. The plantation workers as everybody knows, are the most neglected, marginalized and little known working citizens of the country. The study also highlights that in spite of their acute marginalization, they have still possessed high commitments to the industry although they are facing unwanted upheavals brought about by the vagaries of times in the history of one hundred and sixty three years of its origin, growth, development and present state of decaying in the era of Globalization. The plantation industry is the most tradition oriented industry and therefore it is infected by all sorts of traditionalisms on its modus operandi. The work will definitely help the readers, scholars, students and thinkers of the society who can contribute a lot to the literature of plantation workers of the country. The work is a noble exercise to explore a new theory that will be most applicable to the study of plantation workers and thereby to enrich the literature on the plantation workers of the country in the era of Globalization, Liberalization and Privatization of Indian economy.
