Bihar Day is much more than celebration.  It is more than the pride and excitement of citizens who call themselves Biharis. Bihar Day, celebrated on 22 March to commemorate the State’s separation from Bengal in 1912.

This is an important occasion to remind that it is  the  historical place in the world that is the cradle of Hinduism, the birthplace of Buddhism, Jainism and the tenth guru of Sikhs.The day is celebrated  with flag raising ceremonies, tributes to  heroes and fireworks taking place in the capital – Patna.

The celebrations of the Bihar Divas on March 22, every year, crossed the boundaries of the state and the country. The foundation day of Bihar was celebrated with gaiety and fervor in several states and foreign countries.

Today, on 22 March 2012 Bihar completes 100 years of its formation  .
