We are ecstatic to publicly announce our collaboration with Indian Chai Stories as part of the Chai for Cancer Season 8 Campaign!
Indian Chai Stories is a blog by Gowri Mohanakrishnan with almost 200 original stories from 58 contributors from the tea gardens of Assam, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Sri Lanka!
This year our campaign tagline is “Ek Chai Zindagi ke Naam”, and what better way to take the campaign forward than to showcase the real life stories of tea planters? As Gowri herself puts it, “Back in the tea gardens, our motto has always been “Ek Zindagi Chai ke Naam””.
When Gowri was married to a tea planter in 1986, she had to leave her city life behind and experience first hand, life in the “Dooars”. Amazed by the incredible stories people shared at the tea clubs, she decided to start a blog and share their stories with the world! “Life here is a celebration of the human spirit. Indian Chai Stories is all about the people who live here!”
Tune in to Chai for Cancer every Wednesday for stories of elephants and leopards, of people and of ghosts; some stories so vivid and amazing, they beggar belief!
