Well, hooray for tea, at least. Here's to a solution that mutually benefits labor, mgmt, and tea drinkers alike, if that is not too utopian a sentiment.

One really hopes this marks the end of the turmoil. I don't want to be a pessimist, but what worries me is that talks were held with expelled members of the GJM, and the Chief Minister of West Bengal appointed these rebel members as leaders of the new board or council that oversees the hills. So will the chief agitators (Bimal Gurung, for example) cooperate?

I think what the West Bengal CM has done is used the rift between members of the GJM to her advantage.

The last thing you want is for estates, businesses, shops to open, normalcy to resume, only to be interrupted by act of violence. Fingers crossed that does not happen!
