I have seen this river Joyoti it is like any other river
the poet is portraying a picture of london in the small hours of the day...; everything is calm and quiet all around..; even the river thames seems to be flowing at its own sweet will absolutely unperturbed as the steamers and the barges are lying still on the thames........
b) It is built over over the River Thames.
c) Thinking of bridges the only image of the bridge that comes to my mind is Howrah Bridge. I have never seen anything more magnificient than Howrah bridge. But westmnister bridge is much older. It has it's own importance. It has seven arches whereas Howrah bridge does not have any arches.
