Rajah Banerjee/Makaibari in the news
Sep 21, 2010 | Written by Anupa Mueller
I got a very excited call from my sister-in-law last week saying she heard Rajah quoted on NPR Marketplace (National Public Radio). I couldn't believe it! So here it is - a short piece on organic co-operatives in Darjeeling. Read or listen to it. Rajah has been nurturing this fledgling operation to grow and manufacture organic tea and has procured buyers for their leaf. EKTA, the name of the co-operative, means Unity - a fine name. One more step towards sustainable farming. (Photo shows Rajah with Sencha and Jade, two German Shepherds. In the background, a royal Bengal tiger, from the days of yore when no one knew any better).
