The Brahmaputra river has turned 51-year-old Prafulla Saharia into a refugee. In 2007, it eroded his village Malhu, his home and 70 bighas of farm land. Since then, erosion forced him to move home thrice. The daily wage labourer now fears village Lengeribori, where is now staying, will be gobbled up by the swollen Brahmaputra any day. "This place where we are sheltered now will also get eroded for sure; we faced such a massive flood a few days back, the government only gave us rice, dal and salt, nothing else," Prafulla Saharia told NDTV.
