Hind chakra team talked to the 10 year old kid “Ankita kumari “, who is a student of class 4th ” Sri Maa Durga Academy ‘ and this is what she said to our team :

I am connected to Kilkaari for 3 years and I am good at Dancing, Music, Tabla and Taekwondo . I come to Gandhi Maidan every year during Bihar Divas and this year there are so many interesting things that I want to buy and I want to meet all the young artists out there .I am proud to be a native of Bihar and I love my litti chokha and khaja and , I am not going anywhere away from my hometown.
This little bundle of joy changed the entire picture of what the Future of Bihar will look like.
It is often said that Don’t judge the book by its cover , you may get wrong in your judgement so it would be a good move to atleast go through the content of the book and then make a final decision.
The future of Bihar is not just limited to what the surface concept of Development looks like , its much more deeper than that. We as the citizens of India and specially of our State Bihar will be successfully changing the paradigm that will constitute the new arenas and new dimensions of development where everyone can have a better opportunity and a better outlook with which we see Bihar .The time will come soon when people will not make faces and say “ohh.. You are Bihari , I have heard about it , instead of that it will be ” Hey , You are from Bihar , That’s so cool ! And instead of making faces , they will have a smile of appreciation for our home state . This dream will not be just a dream but a reality when we all Biharis will come together in order to wreath the band of pearls whose tag line will be #Go Bihar ,Grow Bihar !
