SILCHAR, March 21 - In a bid to intensify and spread awareness among the tea garden workers, the National Health Mission, Cachar, organised a health mela at the West Jalenga Tea Estate on Tuesday. The initiative was duly assisted by the teachers and students of Department of Mass Communication, Assam University, Silchar, with a puppet show Sukhi-Dukhir Sansar.

Addressing the garden workers, PWD Minister Parimal Suklabaidya said, �It is a good step to generate health awareness among the people living in the tea gardens. The government is committed to improve the health condition of the tea tribes with more facilities.� He added that a hospital for the garden along with Kalachora and Dwarbandh gardens was also opened on the occasion.

Cachar Deputy Commissioner Dr S Laxmanan and Prof GP Pandey, Head of the Department of Mass Communication, who attended the health camp along with IB Ubhadia, general manager of Rosekandy Tea Garden and Sandip Gulati, manager West Jalenga Tea Estate, appreciated the efforts.

On the other hand, Dr Ayesha Tahera Rashid, Assistant Professor at the Department of Mass Communication, said that the puppet show was a part of the major research initiative assisted by the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR). �Puppetry is a powerful medium of communication among the people, mostly in the tea belts. Through the show Sukhi-Dukhir Sansar, we tried to disseminate messages on anti-natal issues, child health and wellness, girl child education etc., which received a good response from the people who thronged in numbers. The study is an effort to create health literacy among the tea garden community in Cachar and similar puppet shows will be held across the tea gardens of the district in the coming days,� Dr Rashid maintained.
