Alcoholic Neuropathy and Its Impact among the Tea Garden Workers in the Golaghat District of Assam

Dr. Bhatri Pratim Dowarah

Abstract: The majority of Assamese tea tribe members come from Odisha, West Bengal, Jharkhand, and Andhra Pradesh. The British sent their ancestors to the state more than a century ago to work in the tea plantations, and they have remained ever since. This study performed a situational analysis of the phenomenon of alcoholism in tea garden workers, which leads to alcoholic neuropathy, and proposed appropriate measures for reducing / mitigating its impact on the quality of life among tea garden workers in Assam's Golaghat district. In this pilot study, all samples were collected at random. The study was carried out with the assistance of a pre-designed and pre-tested questionnaire. The consumption of commercial drinks as well as the locally produced alcohol known as Haria, which is made from rice and other herbal ingredients, was tracked. The sample size is 500 and the study included both men and women between the ages of 20 and 30. The study concluded that alcoholic neuropathy has a significant economic and physical impact on the social lives of tea workers.
