Biharis- The Perception

‘How would you know english, you are a bihari!!!’

“Oh you are from Bihar!!”

‘Probably, you dont know fashion because you are from bihar!!’

You have an awkward accent, you must be bihari.


Relatable enough, isnt it?


Bihar is considered very different in a negative sense as compared to rest of the world. Most of the biharis, when they move out of their hometowns in search of jobs or studies, they hear these kinds of taunts and sarcasms everywhere. Its very disgusting and embarrassing for us.


Well, we are famous for our record breaking intelligence and achievements, we have rich culture

And our very own ancient university. People all over the world know about it and embrace it the people in our very own country don’t. They only consider us backward, because they do not have that much knowledge and they dont even want to know, that is lack of proper education and their parents are to be equally blamed.


People from Bihar can do every kind of work, we are IAS officers, NASA Scientists, actors, President of India and rickshaw pullers, sewage cleaners, household helpers, farmers, anything and everything you can ever imagine. That is a rare quality you would find in any other state’s people in India. A Bihari has a lot of potential to do anything and we are capable of doing each and everything you cannot even think of.


Bihar means abode- a home or house. This is a land whose womb gave birth to Goddess Sita. Bihar is the land where most of the ‘firsts’ emerged. The first empire of India - Maurya empire, the first university - The Nalanda University. This is the land where Lord Buddha found enlightenment. Buddhism Arose in Bihar.


The Gupta Empire, which originated in Magadha in 240 AD, is referred as the Golden Age of India in science, mathematics, astronomy, commerce, religion, and Indian philosophy.

Those who discriminate with other people, its not their fault, he was not taught how to respect our diverse culture by his parents. Its high time for parents that they should teach their children how to respect each other if they are also educated enough!
