It's a state of emergency in Assam's Buragaon village where every day the Brahmaputra is eroding hundreds of hectares of cultivable land and washing away villages. But there's absolutely no measure that's being taken to control this disaster. Buragaon is in Assam's Morigaon district. Every five minutes a chunk of earth falls into the river. Since 1988, 130 villages have been submerged.
