Our purpose --- The site has been created as a free service for those, irrespective of nationality, who lived and worked in North East India in the Tea Industry, Ferry Service, Oil Industry, ITA Administration, ITA Research at Tocklai etc. These resourceful people included Planters, Engineers, Agronomists, Accountants, Scientists, Administrators, Aircraft Operators, Doctors, and Nurses, and many others. These lucky people are now mainly retired and living in many parts of the world. It is hoped that this web site will offer a trip down memory lane and facilitate, communication between these people, their friends and family. Today there are a large number of children who were born in N. E. India and have a strong interest in the place of their birth. We hope to encourage that interest. The Editor has funded the site since it’s inception in 1999,and is delighted that Denys Shortt, the son of the late Peter Shortt, offered to fund the expenses of the site and has been accepted with gratitude by the Editor. Denys has done this in loving memory of his father who spent 22 years in Assam managing Tea Estates. Denys Shortt created the very successful DCS Company and Enable Software. We thank him sincerely as it will now allow long term planning to allow the site to continue and not in the long term be dependent on one person. For contact please e-mail to editorkoihai@aol.com
