Brahmaputra river from Dibrugarh banks at the time of sunset..with clouds hovering around..!!! 
Most Indian and Bangladeshi rivers bear female names, but this one has a rare male name, as it means "son of Brahma" in Sanskrit.

The old Sanskrit name for the river is Lauhitya and the local name in Assam is Luit. The native inhabitants, i.e., the Bodos called the river Bhullam-buthur, which means 'making a gurgling sound', later Sanskritized into Brahmaputra.
peaceful,looks like Eden on Earth,I like so much the atmosphere!!!! All Photo: Manjit Thakur
