Sunset From River Brahmaputra
I am living in Delhi for my studies from last four years. Once in a year, I get the opportunity to visit my home in Assam, 2000 kms away in Sonepur. I boarded the poorvottari Sampak Kranti from New Delhi railway station on 3rd may. It took 32 hours to reach my destination. Bongaigaon ,The journey was good as many other students were also travelling in the same train. I got off from the train on 5th may, in the morning. Then I took the bus, which was another 2 hour drive to Kalaghadia, an emerging town, My younger brother was already waiting there to take me home. In next half an hour I was in my village much away from the bustling city life. I spent some time shopping in Guwahati, the capital city of Assam.
There are many reasons a traveller should visit the place. Assam is known for its greenery, so my village is no exception.It is as picturesque as a portrait could be. The beauty of the green fields are a treat to the eyes.The beauty of the village is enhanced by the River Beli, which passes by it. The river and high hills surrounds the village from three sides. I took some time out to indulge in Adventure sports on these high hills. While trekking, one thing I noticed was that the place is absolutely wonderful for Eco-Tourism. From these heights, one gets a clear view of the Assam tea gardens that cover a large part on the hills. Though the main attraction of Assam is its wildlife, especially Kaziranga National Park, I was not able to visit them because of lack of time. The sands of the river almost makes a beach on its bank. Another attrative feature is the climate. Neither too hot nor too cold.The amount of rainfall is extraordinary as Cherrapunji (which receives the highest rainfall in the world) is just 5 hours journey.Just two miles from my villages is the baghban Hill, which makes on awsome view.
Thus, my village is an expression of nature. No pollution, no chaos. If one wants to encounter nature from all quarters he must go to my village. Morever,there is a unique culture to team-Assamere blending with Bengali So, my village doesn't just provide food for eyes, but food for thought too.
