Tabi Bhengra’s ancestors were brought to Assam by British tea planters more than 170 years ago. She doesn’t even know which part of central India her ancestors came from. But thanks to a skill passed down across six generations, she now knows that she is her family’s first tea-plucking champion.Ms. Bhengra, 30, is not the only one though. Seven other pluckers from 17 estates of one of the largest tea companies in Assam have received recognition for their unique skill: consistently plucking around 21 kg of the highest quality tea leaves every day. “It feels nice to be awarded for something that I have been doing routinely for 13 years,” said Ms. Bhengra, one of about 1,200 permanent and casual tea pluckers at Borjuli Tea Estate, located in Sonitpur district, 200 km northeast of Guwahati.The 566.56 hectare Borjuli garden is one of a cluster of five tea gardens owned by the Apeejay Group. “Plucking is indeed a special skill. The quality and quantity of tea we produce depend on how Tabi, Gumi and the other workers pick the best leaves,” said Somnath Nandi, Borjuli’s manager. Ms. Bhengra beat Gumi Sanga of an adjoining estate for the awards that were announced during the plucking season of April-November, 2018. The award was based on attendance, and the quality and quantity of leaves. Plucking is mainly done by women, with a worker putting in eight hours a day for six days a week. Ms. Bhengra’s attendance was 97% and she plucked an average of 2,489 kg every two months, with 62% quality. The benchmark at Borjuli is 60-65% of tender leaves, of two leaves and a bud, or an unopened leaf at the tip of a stem. Karan Paul, Apeejay’s Kolkata-based chairman, said the industry had been slow to recognise the workforce. Thirteen workers, including eight champions, would be given a certificate and a cash prize ₹5,000.
CSKA Moscow 0 Basel 2: Xhaka, Oberlin do the damage Patric Ridge 04:53 10/19/17 Twitter (@FC_Basel_en) Basel moved clear of CSKA Moscow in Champions League Group A as goals from Taulant Xhaka and Dimitri Oberlin claimed a 2-0 win in Russia. Taulant Xhaka’s stunning solo strike set the tone for Basel to claim their first victory in ten Champions League away fixtures in style as they saw off CSKA Moscow 2-0.The combative Xhaka put in a sparkling display at the heart of Basel’s midfield, capping off his performance with a brilliant effort 29 minutes into Wednesday’s clash at VEB Arena.Raphael Wicky’s men were the better side throughout, and were denied a second goal following the restart when Albian Ajeti was harshly adjudged to have strayed offside.

Mario Fernandes should have made the Swiss Super League champions pay for their misfortune when he headed over from close range, but Basel substitute Dimitri Oberlin put the game beyond all doubt.Having missed a glut of gilt-edged chances, the youngster eventually kept his composure to slot in his third Champions League goal in as many appearances.Basel’s victory lifts them onto six points, three behind Group A leaders Manchester United, and a victory against CSKA on home soil on October 31 would put them in pole position to progress to the knockout stages for the first time in three seasons.Buoyed by their rampant victory over Benfica on matchday two, Basel started on the front foot, though they were almost behind when Vitinho tried his luck with a dipping free-kick.That was the closest either side would come in a sluggish opening, until Xhaka took matters into his own hands.Having latched onto a loose ball in the centre circle, the Albania midfielder surged forward before dispatching a thumping finish into the bottom-right corner with unerring accuracy.29’ | GOAAAAAAL BASEL!!
