ছুটি : তিনটে চা বাগানের গল্প _Bengali subtitled

২০১৫-এর পুজোর ছুটিতে, যখন সবাই মেতে ওঠেন নানান উত্সবে, বেড়িয়ে পড়েন ভ্রমণে, সেই সময় কেমন আছেন বন্ধ চা বাগানের শ্রমিকরা? কেমন কাটছে তাঁদের উত্সবের দিনগুলো? আসুন যাই একটা সফরে— ডুয়ার্সে তিস্তা নদী পেরিয়ে প্রথমে বাগরাকোট চা বাগান (বন্ধ হয়েছে ৬ মাস আগে), তারপর তোর্সা পেরিয়ে মধু চা বাগান (বন্ধ হয়েছে ১ বছর আগে), এবং সবশেষে আলিপুরদুয়ার পেরিয়ে কোহিনুর চা বাগান (বন্ধ হয়েছে পুজোর এক সপ্তাহ আগে)।
