To meet the increasing demand of water of the city, Government as well as the local people has been constructing several obstructions along roads and embankments in some places and across the river bridge piers, causeways, sand bag filling for collecting water and so on , for which the river is being compelled to change its natural flow. Other human activities like, land-use change, sand mining, water collection, solid waste disposal, agriculture and cutting of tilla land Tillas are the low elevated denudational uplands which is bifurcated by narrow dry up channels, called lunga.
The river basin is covers an area of After originating from the western flank of the Baramura range, the river flows through the hilly tracts for a distance of 6. The river is exhibiting its characteristics of the middle course up to a distance of This river has a total length of about Physiographically, the major part of the Haora River flows through moderately low undulating denudational topography i.

All the tilla land in Haora River Basin possess Dupitila group Pleistocene period of rock in their top layer. The composition of Dupitila group is sandy clay, clayey sandstone; ferruginous sandstone with pockets of plastic clay, silica, and laterite Menon, Most of these rocks of Dupitila group are so soft and fragile that they can be very easily excavated even through axe.
The Haora River is mainly a rain fed river and having a sinuous drainage pattern. At least two peaks are noticed in every year that indicates the number of months having high discharge.

The course of is taken into consideration for detecting such changes because there was a great earthquake magnitude That earthquake led to the change of many river courses in the region including the Brahmaputra River, the longest river in NE India.
Google images are used for detecting the nature and amount of changes of the tilla denudational upland and agricultural lands. The vertical lowering reduction of relief of the said land is identified from field survey.
To standardize those cross-profiles of different years, the starting points and the finishing points were remain fixed and some other fixed intermediate points were also taken into consideration. Fixed bench marks were set for all the cross sections of different time periods. Finally, the extents of the anthropogenic activities in all the upstream and downstream stretches along the Haora River have been identified from the field survey.
The river course remained unaltered even after the earthquake. In the stretch a, about 9. Still in the SOI topographical maps it was found that, after crossing the international border, the Haora River used to take a sharp northward bend to meet with the River Titas. The same topographical map showed the connection of the Katakhal River with Haora River fig. In the case of the Katakhal River, the connection between the Haora and Katakhal Rivers is completely abandoned, and now it is flowing separately.
Such change occurred due to neo-tectonic activities i.

The sinuosity index SI of this stretch has been reduced from 1.
From the field survey it is revealed that the shifting occurred due to human activity. During the regime of Maharaja Birendra Kishore Manikko , a canal the present course from the Haora River was dug fig. But the canal gradient and the channel bed was lower than the original Haora River.
As a result the Haora River diverts its flow through the canal and the mouth of the original course near the connection was getting sedimented. Latitudinal and longitudinal extension of the area; B.

These cross-sections have been taken near the Bridhhanagar market site fig. This is because all these markets dump their waste materials along the right bank of the Haora River fig. Since these dumping materials contain plastic and other artificial components, these get mixed with the suspended sediment very quickly and act as binding nuclei to force the sediment to be clod and deposited.
This prevailed strong adhesive characteristic of those materials, got mixed with the sediment and make that so hard, cannot be eroded entirely by the monsoon water. This type of depositions continued downstream up to a distance of 1. Agrandir Original png, 2,0M A.

Champ de briques. Since this stretch of the Haora River belongs to upper portion of its middle course, the depositional material of this area is mainly of sandy-silty composition. In the year , a point bar of silty composition was found along the left bank of the river fig.
In the year the earlier bar was getting eroded and a new bar of purely clay deposit has been formed in its frontal part fig.
In the year this newly formed bar has further been enlarged fig. The narrow channel has been failing to carry its water and during high discharge period it has started to form a new course through the left side of the earlier silty point bar.
In it is found that this newly formed channel has become the main flow of the river because of excessive left bank erosion but that clayey bar is still enlarging fig. This phenomenon has occurred in several places up to 1. Agrandir Original png, 3,3M A. Photograph showing the condition of the Haora River near Debendranagar in the year ; B. River course of ; C.

It is found that two brick fields, namely R. I and Ramthakur, situated along the right bank of the river are dumping all its wastes along the river bank fig.
I brick field fig. I brick field, composed of structure-less clay fig. This type of sediment is usually found in suspended form in water, transported up to a long distance and finally deposited in the lower course of the river where the velocity becomes very low. In the river it was found in lump form, but when it was crushed in the laboratory, some tiny brick particles were detected.
From the structural characteristics of the samples it can be stated that although the textural composition of the aforesaid sample are same, intrusion of tiny brick particles within this clay is making the structure different.
These brick particles are acting as the lumping nuclei and leading to the deposition of clay in the form of bars which cannot be eroded by the river. And as this lumps being deposited randomly in the channel are also increasing the rugosity of the river and channel migration.

Tilla land degradation 17Most of the brick fields within this river basin collect mud by degrading the surrounding tilla lands haphazardly by axing here and there randomly along the tillas resulting in reduction of their heights and change in their structure fig.
The brick fields pink spots and degraded tilla lands yellow spots have been mapped by a GPS. Both of these two maps have then been superimposed on the 3D terrain model of the area. From the figure it is clearly noticed that the brick fields are located either in low lying areas between the tillas or at the foot of the tillas fig. It suggests that the brick fields collect their raw materials from the surrounding tilla lands.

In the first part, from College-Tilla to Rajnagar, the course has been shifted towards south. Eventually the lives of these four men intersect in a journey that ranges from Scotland to France , from Atlanta, Georgia to rural Florida , and from Hollywood to Belgium during World War I. Thus, they are considered as very rich raw material for the brick fields.
