The Tea Story
It was a pleasant evening walking through the lush green tea estates. Our member Mr. Kajal Chanda explicitly narrated the story of tea. He mentioned the process of cloning by which saplings were grown from leaves, and planted in various areas of the tea estate according to their gradation. Everyone was enlightened about the growth, pruning, plucking, roasting, packaging, testing, pricing, auction and ultimately sending the tea to distributers. Details of grades of tea plants, their water requirements, the first flush and the stages of roasting was mentioned. The difference between white tea, green tea, black tea and roasted tea and their benefits was stated.
The tea pluckers, their initial recruitment, the amount of work expected from them and so on was engrossing. The rage of wild animals for robbing them of their habitats, was sighted in the program.
During the post interactive period, all our participating members praised Mr. Chanda for presenting the program so well. They had numerous queries which were resolved by Mr. Chanda. Tea testers, their job, age, skills and diminishing salary was discussed. Some of the members shared their experience of visiting tea estates and of being witness to the processing of tea. Auction at the Tea Board was something new for most. All the members were thankful for such an interesting program.
Holi Celebration on the Cruise
On the occasion of Holi, our members had a fantastic time on the river Ganges. While cruising they crossed the grand Howrah Bridge, Belur Math, Dakshineshwar temple, Bagbazar Ghat etc. They had an enjoyable time on the cruise meeting and talking with like-minded members, experiencing the gentle breeze and enjoying the light music.
As they set sail, they savoured mouth-watering snacks and lunch which had both veg and non-neg options. Our members had a lovely time singing to the tunes of Holi songs and Rabindra Sangeet.
Support Elders care givers ensured their comfort throughout. We hope to create many more diverse opportunities to bring our members together.
It was a wonderful evening amidst stars – gazing at them and knowing about them. The secret of the birth of a star from the celestial clouds, the birth of a proto-star surrounded by a thin cover of gaseous cloud, becoming a mainstream star to ultimately the death of a star was vividly explained.
All the participants were enlightened about the different types of stars and their characteristics. Also, how a star becomes a red-giant and then becomes a small neutron star, or how it turns into a black hole was discussed. It was a highly knowledge enhancing event which everyone appreciated.
NURTURING AND SHARING THE JOY POETRY BRINGS
"The crown of literature is poetry" - W. Somerset Maugham
Our poetry-loving members meet every week to enjoy the beauty of the verse. While some enjoy reciting poems by well-known poets, there are others who pen poems and are thrilled to dig out their long-lost poems—poems that they had thought had lost their value over the years. But we know that good poetry is perennial.Watch Trailer
Come and join us to express your love for poetry every Thursday. Time: 5 p.m.
TOGETHERNESS AND CAMARADERIE
Storytelling and connecting are the essence of ‘Adda’ or ‘Gupshupp’ as we call it.

The feeling of togetherness and camaraderie is what makes them look forward to each meet.
