Digboi - Poem by Geetima Baruah Sarma

Located in Tinsukia district of Assam,
In the north-eastern part of India,
The town stands with pride
As it has the first refinery in Asia.
During the nineteenth century,
While a railway track was being laid,
Crude oil was accidently discovered
And the place got its name, it's said.
'Dig boy dig' were the words,
When the first oil well was dug,
Digboi still remains unique
As it has the oldest producing Oil Park.
