While traveling to BOH Tea Estate, during our Oriental Outings 2011, the guide-cum-driver of the tour group stopped besides a bunch of Tea Workers who had been accumulating their leaf stock.

While taking snaps from inside the van, I noticed that one of the workers was feeling uncomfortable, to the extent that he moved his face in the opposite direction! Taking their pictures without their consent might be offending for them. So I closed my camera in respect of their feeling.

Later I got to know that those workers, most of whom come from poor countries, are paid with very low wages(?)
