Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

 This week I am sharing millions of twinkles in the waves of a body of water as the sun rise’s first rays appear.

This is the  view of Umngot river from Dawki Bridge.Dawki is a well known town near Jantia Hills in Meghalaya, located on the border of Indo-Bangladesh Border.

It is one of the few road borders crossing between India and Bangladesh. This is the gateway to Bangladesh where major export and import transactions take place. I enjoyed the splendid journey of 95 kms. from Shillong to Dawki, reached this lonely planet and took this photograph from a suspension bridge over this river. 


The calmly flowing river covers a distance of 82 Km and irrigates around 800 Sq km of farmland. At the final lap of its journey it enters into the plains of Bangladesh. The river is also famous as Dawki River, I loved the greenish-bluish shades of water which is so clear that one can get the clear view of the bottom of the river even from a distance, due to its transparency, the shadows of the boats fall on the bottom of the river, which makes the viewer feel that boats are floating in the air. The scene itself is so mesmerizing that one feels like watching the river and around it till eternity.
