It seems Nitish Kumar is hell bent on not only transforming the rural face of Bihar but also making his second reign as the Chief Minister historical.

There are certain phenomenon whose progress goes un-noticed but the world is baffled at the sudden unexpected outcome.

Bihar, with its most varied history in India, was once the centre of power, learning and culture for more than 1000 years. In fact, India's first empire, the Maurya Empire as well as one of the world's greatest anti-violence religions - the Buddhism - arose from the region that now makes modern Bihar, a centre of extreme violence, culturally backward and to the very extent a powerless state of modern India.
