Nature Adventure

Essence and Beauty of Nature – Postcards from Kaziranga and Difloo Hathipahar

What a wonderful National Park with dense jungle, vast grasslands, beautiful water bodies and rich wildlife! It’s flanked by Karbi Anglong range on the south side with the mighty Brahmaputra towards the north. The sunrise from the tea garden bungalow we stayed in, bordering the park, was spectacular! Do watch the video clip and listen to the birds. We really miss all this in the cities. Similarly, the night sky was teaming with stars! The trip was so very refreshing! I strongly recommend a visit. The time is just right. It will get very cold soon.

Flood fury: Why Brahmaputra’s trail of destruction has become annual ritual in Assam

Only the Amazon carries more water than the Brahmaputra, one of the largest rivers in the world with an annual flow of about 573 billion cubic metres at Jogighopa, close to the Indo-Bangladesh border. (Source: Express photo by Dasarath Deka)

The villagers had been talking all morning. There was some water seeping through the embankment along the Brahmaputra, they said, so Ruparam Das, 52, a fisherman in Kaivartagaon, a village in the river island of Majuli, decided to check out for himself. Around 3 pm on July 26, as he stood in front of the river, a few metres downstream from his house, he heard a loud bang. The river had broken through the embankment, but not where he stood. Instead, the river had torn through the wall right in front of his house.
