New Delhi: Since the British regime carved out the state of Bihar from Bengal on March 22, 1912, the day is observed as ‘Bihar Diwas’ or ‘Bihar Day’. The day is celebrated not only in Bihar but also in the neighboring states and countries abroad by natives. People prepare special meals and turn to folklores and folk music to mark the day.

The theme for this Bihar Diwas is ‘Jal Jeevan Hariyali’ to raise awareness about declining annual rainfall and water security in the state.

Bihar has given birth to many extraordinary people whose contributions strongly influenced the history of our country. India’s first President Rajendra Prasad was born in Bihar.  Anugrah Narayan Sinha, also known as ‘Bihar Vibhuti’ who played a significant role in the freedom was also born in the state. Shri Krishna Singh, popularly known as ‘Bihar Kesari’ was the first Chief Minister of Bihar. Veer Kunwar Singh who led the  ‘Indian Rebellion of 185’7 also hailed from the state.

Bihar has played a major role in India’s freedom struggle. The country’s first civil disobedience movement, launched by Mahatma Gandhi against the injustice meted out to tenant farmers was started in Bihar’s Champaran. The ‘Kisan Sabha’ movement, an important peasant movement, was also initiated in Bihar.
