Still doing some house works at 2am because who needs sleep after doing work for the whole day and the whole day before that as well? Anyway... had to take a 2mins break but then Ivy finds my legs to be a comfortable bed for her. After about 10mins of a little bit of an argument with her, my break is gone. Well rested I guess I've to go to work in a few hours. 😒yey . . #ivy#using#hooman#just the #usual My #bengalcat#rules#bengalcativy#withgalaxy
A timeless sight on the Jellingee River, tributary of the Ganges, in the heart of the district where indigo was produced on a vast scale in the 19th century using exploited, coerced labour. Danish, Portuguese, French and British jostled for trading power here until the English East India Company gained control. Most planters were British or French, with the collusion of Bengali tax collectors, money lenders and shareholders in the Indigo Companies (eg the Tagore family). As so often, it was the poor peasant farmers who suffered. They revolted against the system in Bengal in 1859, in the so-called ‘Blue Mutiny’, and many planters moved to Bihar after this, where Gandhi then confronted the unjust system in 1917 at Champaran. Gandhi himself loved local hand-spun cotton - Khadi cloth - and also natural dyes, indigo included. There is still much poverty here and village weavers, for example, are paid a pittance for handwoven sari lengths and live in very basic homes while the middlemen make the profit and build big concrete villas. #indigo#naturaldyes#bengal#rivers#ganges#farming#farmers#eastindiacompanies#eastindiacompany#plantations#planters#gandhi#bihar#india#ganges#gangesriver#champaran#fishermen#fishing#fishingnets#exploitation#weavers
