Workers in Assam are trapped in a unique situation of terrible poverty making them vulnerable to the lure of human traffickers. Investigative reports indicate that people in Delhi have bought girls for as little as $65 USD. Others are taken abroad.

I used to buy Tetley(subsidiary of Tata Beverages) for Green tea bags. I think I'll reconsider my opinion now.

Tata is also a Joint Venture partner for Starbucks in India which operates Starbucks stores in India

Pathetic and eye-opening! I will be very careful about the teas I select - generally herbal and defiantly NOT Tetley!
