How can we reject the claim that the recent proverbial sentences made at the ministers of the Bihar Assembly have not irked them? Although the three proverbs somewhere illustrate the sentiments of society, yet, practical lessons are hidden in them.
What made Alexander the Great so much better than all the other equally stronger conquerors? It is not just about the size of his big empire. It was also neither his military strength nor war intelligence.

It is their support during the elections that compels them to do something for the poor. So, their hearts beat for the poor when they require their good help.

It is merely Rs 400 for older people, widows and people with visual impairment in some states. This meagre amount stands lesser than the amount received by similar recipients in the states of Delhi, Goa and Haryana.
