Why is the hair of Jairam Ramesh, Union Minister of State for Commerce, getting grey? It is due to tension, according to his confession. And, where do you think the tension has originated?

He had a nerve-racking experience in trying to tackle the affairs of closed tea estates in Kerala. For the past seven months, he had a strenuous time, Mr. Ramesh said at a press conference in Kochi on Thursday.

Nevertheless, the Minister is happy that his efforts have borne fruit. One of the closed estates has already opened and more than a dozen are on the way to regaining their health.
