Locals in Assam Build Bamboo Bridge, Name it 'Zubeen Garg Bridge'
GUWAHATI: Locals and residents of a village in Tinsukia district have expressed their love for singer Zubeen Garg by constructing a bamboo bridge and naming it after him.

It is to be mentioned that around 400 to 500 people have to cross the river every day and with only one boat in place locals including students face a harrowing time.
