Meghalaya brews hot: Tea tourism on the table 27.4.2017 Meghalaya Times

Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, April 26: Be it the aroma, richness in quality or the organic status – Meghalaya tea has it all and the state government is all out to explore the tea growing potential of the state to its maximum with an added bonus of promoting tea tourism.
It was a visit in 1974 by Tea Board of India and scientists from Tea Research Association that marked the beginnings of organized tea cultivation in the state. Tea nurseries were established from 1977 onwards, and suitable varieties well adapted to the state’s soils, temperatures and rainfall were brought in from neighbouring Assam, and also from Darjeeling. The seedlings were subsequently transplanted to experimental gardens at Umsning (in Ri Bhoi District), Tebronggre (in the West Garo Hills) and also to Riangdo (in West Khasi Hills) in 1978.

Meghalaya musings 23.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
Petrol/diesel at just Re 1 per litre!' Wait don't rush in with a can or a drum. It is Re 1 less than the market rate. The board is a gimmick to lure you to the bunk. Fresh vegetables, milk, meat etc are common. But have you heard of 'fresh cement'? Well, it is sold here. Welcome to Meghalaya, the tiny state tucked away in the north east corner of the country. Also known as 'Scotland of the East,' this 'abode of clouds' — that's what Meghalaya means — is full of greenery and hillocks and well-attired tribesmen. But what I savoured more was the abundant supply of fresh air. With no industry to pollute the atmosphere, the air is oxygen-rich. I greedily inhaled as much oxygen into my system as possible while I moved around. And during my week-long hopping from one tourist spot to another, I did neither buy petrol at Re 1 less than the market price nor fresh cement, but I spotted a swarga yatra rath which is their equivalent of a hearse. Is the journey to heaven assured then? My sojourn was too ...
