    • BJANA HOLI & BIHAR DIWAS 2011 History of Bihar Ancient TimesThe land mass currently known as Bihar is very ancient. The name is derived from “Vihara” – aland of monasteries. Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Muslim, and Sikh shrines abound in this ancientland. Earliest myths and legends of Hinduism are associated with Bihar. Sita, the Consort ofLord Rama, daughter of King Janak was born in Sitamarhi. The ancient kingdom of Janakcalled Vidaha consisted of present day districts of Muzaffarpur, Sitamarhi, Samastipur,Madhubany, and Darbhanga. The original author of the Hindu epic – The Ramayana –Maharishi Valmiki lived in Valmikinager, a small town in West Champaran.It was here in Bodhgaya, under a banyan tree, the Bodh tree, that Prince Gautama attainedsupreme knowledge to become Buddha, the enlightened one. Most of the major events of hislife, like enlightenment, last sermon, and nirvana (death) happened in Bihar. The great religionof Buddhism was born here, and Bodhgaya is one of the most important and sacred Buddhistpilgrimage centers in the world.The Lord Mahavira, the founder of Jainism, was born at Vaishali and attained nirvana (death) atPawapuri, near Rajgir. The tenth and the last guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh was bornin 1666 in Patna Sahib. A lovely and majestic Gurudwara – the Harmandir, built tocommemorate his memory, is one of the holiest places of worship for Sikhs. The ancientkingdom of Magadh and of Licchavis, around 7-8 Century B.C. produced rulers who devised asystem of administration that truly is progenitor of the modern art of state-craft and of thelinkage of state-craft with economics. Magadh rose to glory during Guptas (4th and 5th centuriesA.D.) and produced Kaultilya, the author of Arthashastra, the first treaties of the modernscience of Economics and Chanakya, the advisor to the Magadh king, Chandragupta Maurya.Chanakya produced the first Indian treaties on state-craft and politics. Patliputra (ancient nameof Patna, the Mauryan capital) was established by King Ajatshatru around 5th century B.C. at theconfluence of the rivers Sone and Ganga.The Maurya Emperor Ashok (234-198 B.C) was the first to formulate firm tenets for thegovernment of a people. These edicts inscribed on stone pillars were planted across hiskingdom extending to almost all of the undivided India. Ashok was responsible also for thewidespread proselytization of people in Buddhism.Nalanda, the world’s first seat of higher learning, a Monastic University was established duringthe Gupta period and flourished from the 5th to the 11th century. The University had 9 millionbooks and 2000 teachers to impart knowledge to 10,000 students from all over the Buddhistworld. Lord Buddha himself taught here and Hieun Tsang, the 7th century Chinese traveler, wasa student. Ongoing excavations have uncovered temples, monasteries, lecture halls andcharred library burned by Mughal invaders.
    • BJANA HOLI & BIHAR DIWAS 2011The Khuda Baksh oriental library has rare muslim manuscripts including some from theUniversity of Cordoba, Spain. Medieval TimesThe glorious history of Bihar lasted until around the 8th century Gupta Period. It was followedup by the Palas of Bengal, who ruled until 1197, when the Mughal period began. In MedievalTimes, Bihar lost its prestige as the political and cultural center of India. The Mughal period,which lasted from the 12th to the 17th century, was a period of unremarkable provincialadministration from Delhi. The only remarkable person of these times in Bihar was Sher Shah,an Afghan whose rule in the 16th century extended all the way to the Punjab. His mausoleum islocated in Sasaram. Modern TimesThe British acquired Bihar in 1764 in the Battle of Buxar and ruled until India’s independence in1947. During most of British India, Bihar was a part of the Presidency of Bengal and wasgoverned from Calcutta, dominated by people from Bengal. When separated by the BengalPresidency in 1912, Bihar and Orissa comprised a single province. Later in 1935, the division ofOrissa became a separate province. In 1956 the southeast district of Puralia was incorporatedinto West Bengal. The state was further bifurcated in 2001, and a new state “Jharkhand” cameinto existence.It was from Bihar that Mahatma Gandhi launched in 1917, his civil disobedience movement,which ultimately led to India’s independence in 1947. Many people from Bihar became leadingparticipants in India’s struggle for independence. Dr. Rajendra Prasad became the firstPresident of the Republic of India. Jay Prakesh Narayan affectionately called JP, madesubstantial contributions to modern Indian history until his death in 1979. It was he, whosteadfastly and staunchly opposed the autocratic rule of Indira Gandhi. The movement startedby JP, however brought the emergency to an end; led to the massive defeat of Indira Gandhi atthe poll and restored liberal democracy.In the immediate post-independence period, Bihar saw an economic growth throughestablishment of new industry and power projects. However, the state has experienced anextreme and progressively escalating decline in the last decade or two, making it the worstadministered and the poorest state at the dawn of the new millennium. A new progressivegovernment came into power in November 2005 and has succeeded in reversing the economicand law and order decline of decades, and is poised to make significant economic gain. Bihar’sGDP grew at the rate of 11% during last 4 years, outpacing the India’s average growth.This landlocked state of Bihar is surrounded by Nepal, Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, and comprisesthree cultural regions – Bhojpur, Mithila, and Magadh. Rivers Kosi and Gandak from the northand Sone from the south join the Ganga. In the fertile plains, rice, sugar cane, oilseeds, maize,jute, barley and wheat are cultivated. The present Bihar is predominantly rural and agricultural.
    • BJANA HOLI & BIHAR DIWAS 2011Jharkhand, which was carved out in 2000, comprises of Chotanagpur in south surrounded byBihar, Chattisgarh and Orissa. Damodar river flows through the picturesque plateau and itsvalley is the Rohr of India. Under its soil, minerals abound. TourismJerusalem is a place of religions pilgrimage for believers of three different religions- Christianity,Islam, and Judaism. Bihar is the destination of religious tourism for believers of five distinctreligions- Buddhism, Islam, Sikhism, Jainism and Hinduism. Recent EventsThe wall Street Journal reported on May 29, 2010 that India’s GDP grew 7.1% in FYE3/31/2010, projected to grow 8.5% in FYE 3/31/2011, and is expected to grow at 11% in thefuture. As against this, Bihar’s growth has been at 11% in last 4 years.Bill Gates visited village Gulria in Khagaria in May 2010 to launch “kala jar” eradication program.In September 2010, Dalai Lama inaugurated “Karuna” stupa in newly created Buddha Park inPatna, near Patna railway station on the site of old Jail. SUPER 30The Time Magazine named Super 30 in the list of “The Best of Asia 2010”. Super 30 is Bihar’sfree coaching center which helps economically backward students crack the Indian Institute ofTechnology-Joint Entrance Examination. This project was started by Anand Kumar andAbhyanand in 2003 and since then 182 out of total 210 students have made it to ITT.Every year, about 230,000 students take the exam for a seat in the ITTs but only 5000 grab it.Last Year, 30 of them came from one coaching center in Patna, capital of Bihar, a 100%success rate. NY Times Glowing Report- April 10, 2010Bihar’s turnaround illustrates how a handful of seemingly small changes can yield big results inIndia’s most impoverished and badly governed regions. Bihar is a textbook case of howleadership determines development.When Mr. Nitish Kumar took over, he found government offices filled with dusty files andRemington typewriters. It was as if most of the 20th century had passed Bihar by. He tackledcrime first. Next came schools and hospitals. He loosened bureaucratic rules to moveinfrastructure projects along more rapidly. However, despite all these spectacular results,almost no private investment has come into Bihar. Now that Nitish Govt was reelected withthumping majority, this may change.
    • BJANA HOLI & BIHAR DIWAS 2011 BIHAR DIWASPATNA: Bihar Diwas, to mark the 99th anniversary of separate statehood status to Bihar, will beobserved from Monday for the first time at official level.The functions will be held at over 25,000 centers, including schools, across the state and also atother places in the country and abroad.Earlier, Bihar was tagged with Bengal and Orissa.
