INTRODUCTION

It enters the north-eastern corner of Assam through the Mishmi Hills and turning nearly due west, passes through all districts of north Assam. It is the chief artery and high way of Assam. For generations the Assamese have watered their fields with its blessed water; their whole history and culture are intimately connected with the Brahmaputra.  The monsoon rains mark the seasons and the climate is generally damp and enervating. The soil is very fertile and the landscape is always green and beautiful due to constant rainfall. Rivers, hills and plains make the State beautiful; the feeling is one of exuberant life.

The earliest inhabitants of Assam are the Austric speakers who began to filter into Assam long anterior to the advent of the Aryans from the west. Their culture still survives in many existing institutions, customs and manners of the Assamese people.
