Babar Ali

By Rakhi Chakraborty: Long before the Right to Education Act was a possibility, one teenager was quietly doing his part to ensure that the literary rates were up. You won’t find much about Babar Ali on the internet. For most part Google kept giving me results about some Pakistani actor of the same name. I […]

By Shashank Saurav: 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. In yet another unprecedented step designed to suck out fraudulent money laundering schemes from the corrupt administrative vortex, the NDA government decided to do away […]

By Aashu Anshuman: I was born and bred in Patna, Bihar. I am too young to remember the details but can recollect the news flashes from when the legendary “fodder Scam” was uncovered.

By Avnish Gaurav: Development is a complicated word. A task difficult to perceive , execute and assess. Its hard even to imagine carrying out this complicated task in a place trapped in its own complicatedness. I am talking of a place that has been referred to by international media as “Notoriously Lawless State”, “India’s Corner Of […]
Nitish Kumar's victory in Bihar proved that caste politics is not what works now!

By Pratik Goyal: A politician thinks of next election but a statesman thinks of next generation.

lalu & nitish

By Chandeep Arora: Despite of the fact that most of the IITians and IAS officers belong to Bihar, it has been one of the poorest and most backward states of India. The inference is quite straight; Bihar does have the right amount of talent but not the right amount of resources. The state also did […]

By Shashank Saurav: Yesterday while going through the early morning newspaper my eyes fell on a certain news item.

By Sadhogopal Ram: 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 […]

Shikhar Singh: If an NDTV opinion poll is to be believed, the upcoming Bihar election seems a close-affair, one that could swing either way. That said, the conclusion really is one of Nitish Kumar’s waning invincibility at the hustings– nothing more and nothing less. However, the figures emanating from the recent survey are important for […]

Abhirup Bhunia: Bihar, once almost synonymous to despondency, is rising from the ashes of gloom and murkiness. The nearly infamous GDP growth rate of 11.03% that was termed as miracle more than once is not just where the story begins or ends. The dreadful past that saw this north eastern state decelerating, deteriorating and degrading […]

After reading the […]

Kumar Ankit: Bihar, the most underdeveloped and underprivileged state of the nation is the new tiger economy of the country. It has achieved a growth rate of about 11.03% in its GDP in the last five years under the leadership of Nitish Kumar. With this, Bihar shut the mouth of all the critics who were […]
