On the 1st of January 2010 the M.V. Manashputra made his maiden voyage on the Brahmaputra, the only river in India with a male name. Freely translated, the name means Brahma's /the Creator's Son. The vessel's name freely translated means the longed for, perfect child.
Such a precious child one is proud to show and lovingly take care.
The boat, driven by three engines, is flat-bottomed. All the 14 roomy guest cabins are air-conditioned, furnished with two berths, large windows, and the conveniences of toilet and shower. Most of the furniture and diverse furnishings are made of Assamese bamboo.
On the upper deck are a pleasant bar and dining hall. There too is a large open-air deck, the Vaju loft. Very appealing it is the favorite area for passengers, protected from direct sun, where full views of the surrounding countryside are enjoyed. Popular entertainments on the Vaju such as dance performances are often arranged here.
On the second upper deck is the Surya- sun also open-air but more private, protected from the sun and giving a full observers view of the surrounding countryside. The lower deck has a spacious guest lounge with bar, a library, AV equipment suitable for guest lectures, also TV and filmshows. This guest lounge is called the Jironi-leisure.
