The Assam floods have left the state paralysed, with around three dozen people killed and 54 lakh displaced. People living on islands along the Brahmaputra river are facing another problem. They are required to attend the National Register of Citizens' (NRC) hearings to resolve discrepancies but many are not able to make it due to the flood in the mighty river. The house of Beila Khatun, a 60-year-old resident of island Kalardia Char, is flooded. She made into the draft NRC but an objection was raised on her inclusion. They missed a crucial hearing recently as no boatman was ready to ferry them.
