Assam, the ferocious jungle strata, full of fierce Nagas, suddenly springs into hectic activity as soon as the Govt. of India signs a contract with the Italians and Germans to construct the 712 miles of oil pipelines from Naharkatya in Assam to Barumi in Bihar. Italians and Germans who are known for their expert precision work required in Pipeline construction get into their work jointly and before monsoon this year they have been able to complete the 275 mile strip of pipeline from Naharkatya to Gauhati. The funds for the GBP100 million project came from U.K. as loan and the Burma Oil Co. of Scotland is in charge of the whole show and the pipeline is being laid under their supervision and guidance. Work went apace and to schedule. As monsoon approached fast, the work also neared completion and the jooming sound of the trenching machine, the loud soars of the gigantic cranes and the revolving vigour of the wrapping machine slowly faded as the work near completion in this strip and the monsoon took over. A work well done, thanks to the zeal of work and spirit of co-operation between British, Italian and Germans.
