Bihar Foundation : Expectation of Non Resident Biharis(NRBs)/NRI

Hi Satyajit and Team,
It was pleasure to meet you all during my visit to your office in Patna in May 2009. Initially I was little skeptical about this whole initiative as this is a govt supported initiative and we all had our share of bad experience with bureaucracy. But after meeting you all at Patna and learning about your projects and plans, I am quite excited about the future of this organization.
The time I spent talking to you all about the projects, gave me some sort of assurance that in future when we NRBs want to do something for our state, there is a govt body that can help us achieve our dreams.
I am sure together we can do something for our state and do our bit to bring back the lost glory.

Although I live in Australia but my heart still beats for India rather for Bihar. I have keen interest in Bihar related causes and try to do my bit to See a BETTER Bihar and have been involved in various socio-economic projects for Bihar.

I have written an email to the person behind Bihar Jharkhand Sabha Melbourne, Australia (BJSM) and will wait to see what his response is in next few days. I will distribute the brochures etc to everyone possible.

Bihar Sammelan, 09 at Brighton, United Kingdom

NRI Biharis of United Kingdom came together for 'Bihar Sammelan' at Brighton, UK. About 300 people participated in the event. Bihar Foundation, Patna was introduced in that event and the message was well received by the NRBs in UK. They all are entralled by this initiative of the Govt. of Bihar & want to be associated with this unique movement in the history of Bihar.
Someone wants to invest in Bihar or someone wants to do some works like establishment of 'Community Centre', School or small Hospital in their native village or area through the Bihar Foundation, Patna. Even someone wants to do something for the school or college from where they got education.

Bihar Foundation, Patna salutes their love and emotion for their motherland. Inspite of being far away from their Bihar, they have always kept Bihar in a corner of their heart. Their love and emotion for Bihar is evident form the fact that they have established Bihar based organisation named 'Bihar Development Foundation' in UK & celebrate events of Bihari essence. They always wanted to know and do something for their motherland.

Now I leave you with glimpses of the event. They had the 'Cultural Programme' and had the dinner together. All thanks for sharing this with the Bihari Diaspora worldwide.

Let the whole world know that Biharis are at the top everywhere and at the same time they think for the development of their motherland.

From the core of my Heart

Dear Satyajitjee,
It was an interesting meeting I had with Bihar Foundation, India and the prospect of working together for mutual interest which is BIHAR, PEOPLE OF BIHAR. It was very encouraging to see that very senior civil servants of the State Govt. hierarchy are members of the Foundation in Bihar which not only gives it credibility but also gives it stability, and I am sure this organization shall promote Bihar and hopefully will bring investment into Bihar. We as Bihar Development Foundation UK will be honored to work along with yourselves. It was very nice to have met Mr Anup Mukerjee, Development Commissioner cum Member Secretary, Bihar foundation and Mr Ajay Yadav the CEO of Bihar Foundation India during our meeting.
We were delighted to note here in the UK the findings and the recommendation of the World Bank that PATNA is the second most ideal place to invest in the whole India [news in the media]. This speaks a lot for Patna and Bihar.
I have arranged for the poster to be displayed and other material to be distributed in the annual meeting of the doctors from Bihar this time to be held in Brighton [South of England] where about 300 families from Bihar and Jharkhand come together in a " Mela " like environment with exhibitions, music and of course sessions of scientific[medical]lectures. It is a two day program and the participants are from Bihar & Jharkhand.
After the advertisement and the facilities Bihar Foundation, India is going to provide to NRB'S for investment in Bihar I am confident that you shall be inundated with queries, hopefully some of which can end up in sponsored projects by NRB'S. I would very strongly recommend that a similar set up be formed in Jharkhand so that people from jharkhand[OLD BIHAR]get the same benifit.Here in the UK or North America it is still BIHAR not The divided Bihar as Jharkhand & Bihar we all feel as one and meet and treat each other as one.
God Bless India,
God Bless Bihar and BIHARI across the globe.
Yours sincerely
President, Bihar Development Foundation UK
