It was like any other day in Central (Now Khudi Ram Bose Central) Jail in Muzaffarpur except that the scorching sun has lost some of its fury giving us considerable amount of relaxation. The approaching winter had brought ever so uncaring jail administration a sense of providing warm clothing to the prisoners including JP activists imprisoned there.

It was the warm summer afternoon of June 30, 1975 I was sitting idle at home perspiring when I saw Ratnesh coming with some common friends of ours. Ours was a rented house just at one of the large gates of Sarvodaygram in Muzaffarpur.

िन्हा जी का लेख बिहारियों के वर्तमान मनोदशा के चित्रण का एक ईमानदार प्रयास है (क्या बिहार द्वारा राज्य गान कि पहल अनुचित है?). परन्तु बिहारी शब्द एक गाली जैसा तब लगता है जब कोई बिहार से बाहर जाता 
है और अन्य राज्यों के लोगों से प्रतिस्प्रधा के दरम्यान उसे बिहारी सम्बोधन कर नीचा दिखाने की कोशिश की जाती है. परन्तु बिहार में ऐसे शब्द का प्रयोग अर्नथक या निर्रथक ही है.

When the Hon’ble CM, Shri Nitish Kumar is busy in rejoicing his awards for his statesmanship in making a turnaround of political and administrative scenario in Bihar, it is quite baffling to come across the news frequency now relating to abduction, robbery, etc in Bihar.

The second time victory of Nitish Kumar, as the analysts say, owes its existence to relative peace and some basic infrastructure developments, like roads, school buildings etc. etc. He has no doubt streamlined the administrative loose ends. Yet, these are superfluous and need to have regular upkeep. And therefore, the government has to be continuously active failing which this would prove to be a castle of cards. You remove a card from the bottom and the whole things come down in a jiffy.

Lalu Prasad’s declaration in his boastful but ridiculous whims that no upper caste will ever be the Chief Minister of Bihar hence forth, reveals his sinister design in politics of Bihar which not only have far reaching consequences for the upper castes but also speaks of the futuristic trend of politics in India.

I went mad with laughter when I heard the news on TV about the samples of food items from canteen of parliament sent for forensic test to determine its safety ingredients for human consumption.

Bravo! Bravo! JDU.

The members of JDU are now justifying themselves being the real breed of the educational system which follows the principal of AGRATAH SHAKLESHASTRAM PRISHTHTAH SHASARAHDHANU; the meaning inherent in the slogan is that if your all solemn and just academic and philosophical arguments fail to be efficacious before your opponent, take recourse to the philosophy of taking the bull by the horn.
