Majuli, the Asia's largest river island faces a serious threat of being washed away. Days are not far if urgent treatment continues to elude.

The surging waters of the mighty Brahmaputra threaten to ravage the historic vaishnative monastery of Kamalabari. Many roads in the island have been submerged. In Jorhat, water has risen to dangerous levels at Nimatighat and the main dyke in the area is under threat of submergence. Around 400 families in the area have been affected.
