Mighty, Majestic Brahmaputra

Maybe the Brahmaputra is the only male river of India, with most of the other rivers being feminine be it Ganga, Yamuna, Kaveri, Krishna, Godavari, Nila … the list goes on.  The river Brahmaputra is majestic, mighty as well as beautiful – of course when it is not violent.

Maybe it is wrong to call the river as violent, though year after year, it takes the lives of many people on its way. The fault is not with the river, but with people who do not care about the earth, and go on encroaching on water spaces.

Mighty flows the Brahmaputra

Calm and peaceful

Majestic and grand

Hidden in it is its fury

Against the arrogance

The ignorance

The greed of those

Who continue to ignore

To be punished and warned

Time after time

Year after year..

 

Mighty flows the Brahmaputra

Calm and peaceful

Majestic and grand
