The Brahmaputra river in Assam which has been overflowing and causing flash floods has affected the lives of 2 lakh people living around it. The flood  situation is worsening  because of heavy rainfall leading to an increase in the water level in the river.

It is saddening that human activities of mining and excavation have caused the river course to change leading to landslides and floods.
