eastern Indian state, Bihar needs no introduction today.
From the best administered state to the worst managed
state it has been a long journey for Bihar separated
by time and temperament, history and geography, politics
of principle to politics without principle. Along the
way plenty stood still, hunger became a wanderer, development
an eff-off. With a land mass larger than France and
population more than five times that of Australia, Bihar
somewhere lost its glorious past and admirable socio-cultural
ambience until someone, a year ago, dared to see the
whole picture by stepping out of the frame.
efforts were made, several silences were shared and
today the state become the most preferred destination
for one and all across the Globe. So to share the experiences,
examine the exclamations, explore the new ground and
search the Cartesian light there is a Global Meet at
Patna to be organized between 19-21 January 2007.
New Delhi based Institute for Human Development [IHD]
and Patna based Bihar Times with the active participation
of the state government have taken steps to make this
mega-meaningful event a proper platform for the people
from all walks of life to come and join hands together
for the common purpose.
