caption: Barak river falls. These falls are regarded with great fear by the villagers on either side because of the number of tragedies connected with them. The Barak river can rise thirty feet in six hours from rain in the high hills, there being no warning in the lower reaches where the falls are. There have been at least two tragedies in this area.
