Today is World Water Day and we are celebrating by celebrating rivers. Come celebrate with us and participate in the River Diary Contest.
This is a travelogue about one of the mightiest rivers of the world, the Brahmaputra. While most rivers in the Indian sub-continent have feminine names, the Brahmaputra, meaning the son of Brahma in Sanskrit, is unusual in having a masculine one. This is also the story of a grand journey taken by a celebrated Bangladeshi photographer. Following the river, he braved the barren, icy wilds of Tibet, travelled along the verdant green lands of northeastern India and finally lovingly captured the light of the ‘living river’ in Bangladesh. His stunning visual chronicle will remain etched in your memory forever even as it gives you a view of the many-splendoured cultural canvas of the sub-continent.
