Three years earlier, on June 9, 2009, the same town of Pasighat saw floods like never before. The Siang was in spate and the floodwaters rose up to 30 metres, submerging almost the entire town. And now, the same Siang river is full of slag, making its water so turbid that the authorities in the frontier state have declared it unfit for human consumption after tests in laboratories. The impact is also being felt on aquatic life with fishes dying or disappearing, perhaps into clearer waters somewhere. It"s a good time to find out what"s going on in the Siang, and whodunnit! We"re talking about the Siang because it originates in the Tibetan Himalayas as the Yarlung Tsangbo, enters Arunachal Pradesh at the "great bend", flows down into the Assam plains as the Brahmaputra and empties into the Bay of Bengal via Bangladesh, where it flows ...
