To those in Bihar who live on the edge whose existence is submerged
present burdensome and future blank ,
and voice muted-with a hope
for turn off the wheel,
and a change of the day
that may bring them smile.
-Dedication,' understanding Bihar' by Dr AK Biswas.
Bihar ,The Land Locked central Indian state that lies in the Gangetic basin, accounts for 16.5% of the flood-prone area and 22.1% of the flood affected population in India. The major rivers that flow through the state are- Ganga, Sone, Bagmati, Lalbakia, Budhigandak, Kamalabalan, Aadhwada, Poonpoon and the Kosi which is known as the sorrow of Bihar.
