The scourge of opium in the border villages between India and Burma where in this remote area forgotten by both governments, without any checks and prevention by the authorities, the consumption of opium has spread so rapidly as to make one-third of men slave of opium, creating a hard vacuum in the fabric of the society. While women go to the fields to work, barefoot, in all weather conditions, men gather in a hut to smoke opium all day long.
The children are left in the same house and play while adults are smoking, the acrid smell and fumes spread all over in the hut.
The situation is now dramatic and critical, but is not well known.
But what will happen In a few years?
Without any intervention, entire villages will be inhabited by men and boys who are completely addicted to opium.
