Bihar Day: All arrangements have been made for the Bihar Diwas celebration. There will be enthralling performances by famous artistes at the Gandhi Maidan and the spacious SK Memorial Hall during the three-day event starting on Tuesday.

Chief minister Nitish Kumar will inaugurate the three-day celebration on Tuesday, while the final event (on Thursday) will be graced by governor Phagu Chauhan as the chief guest. Both functions will be held at Gandhi Maidan. At the event, residents will have the opportunity to taste the cuisines of Bihar at a food pavilion set up by the tourism department.

Similarly to Delhi Haat, stalls have been set up at the Patna Haat Pavillion by the state education department and the National Book Trust (NBT). Additionally, artisans from across the state will exhibit their handicrafts and handloom products at the event.

Laser shows on Jal-Jiwan-Hariyali by the environment and forest departments, digital exhibits by the tourism department, and water resource department shows will also be areas of attraction. Besides, the dog show by BMP Patna and the drone show will be something new this year that people will be able to experience for the first time.

The British Empire recognized Bihar as a separate state on March 22, 1912.

Bihar Day has transcended state, national, and international boundaries except in the last two years, when the celebrations could not be organized due to the Covid pandemic.

Bihar now has its own anthem and a song called Bihar Gaurav Gaan. The theme of this year’s Bihar Day is ‘Jal Jeevan Hariyali’.
