"BIHAR,THE land of Lord Budha and Bhagwan Mahavir has today earned the reputation of a land of crime and corruption.The very reputation has proved a millstone around its neck.The recent outbursts of two senior Government officials( both of being Bihari) clearly reflect the inner feelings of Bihar is about the present scenario in Bihar,
This is just a small crack .The Year 2003 will witness spontaneous reaction of the masses to the spectra of crime and corruption looming large over Bihar and eagerness to work for a fundamental change in the entire system to regain for the state its lost glory . The Chankya brain will be applied not only to the politics but also to the matters concerning the states economy.
I hope in 2003 Bihar will emerge as a place of living community ,which has the motivation and the capability to act fundamental changes in crucial spheres .
Opening of Gaya International Airport has given the single that tourism industry will flourish in 2003.Places of the historical value ,such as Bodh Gaya,Rajgir,Nalanda,Pawapuri,Vaishali will attract global tourists.Importance of Information Technology has been recognized by the State Government and the decision to establish an IT Park is certainly a step forward in the development of the IT sector in 2003.The fertile lands of the state can be used to fillip to the agro based industries,World famous Madhubani Painting,Handloom,Tasar Silk,Lichhi and Makhana will attract foreign direct investment (FDI).
The people of Bihar are industrious.Its labor force has established its reputation for hard work not only inside the country but even outside it, Far away places like,Fiji,Suriname,and Mauritious .In this era of tough competition ,the student of Bihar are emerging victorious in their respective field.
Lets hope positive aspects of Bihar get highlighted in the media in the new year and help retrieve its lost image of a state on the move.
A land of such great potentialities with its reservoir of hard working and industrious labour and intellectuals besides a rich historical background will certainly raise from its present stupor to lead the nation as it did in the ancient times.Sooner or later ,we will be proud to be called Bihari."
