The turnaround man

Yes, Mr. Nitish Kumar, the CM of Bihar…the man in the spot light…so is his effort. Before I fill the post with praise, I would like to bring statistics to ponder. Source: Economic times:

A manifestation of the turnaround in the law and order and infrastructure sectors could be gauged from the fact that the number of foreign tourist arrivals in the state has shot up from 94,446 in 2006 to 3.56 lakh in 2008.

According to the latest Central Statistical Organisation (CSO) data, Bihar’s GDP grew by an astounding 11% in the five years between 2004-05 and 2008-09, much more than the national average of 8.49%, making it the second fastest-growing state in the country. It, of course, has benefited from a low base effect since the state has long been a growth laggard, but governments before Mr. Kumar had been unable to accelerate economic growth.

‘We want the next round of green revolution to happen in Bihar’

Sure we want, and me too, Bihar is a special state for me; most of my growing days (schooling) have been spent in the state. Later became Jharkhand… Keeping away the synonyms of Bihar with kidnappings and abductions, the criminal-politician nexus; let start it new… at-least the thought should be new and hope anticipated …
As we travel through the 2010, we are more hopeful about prospects for 2010 compared to the dismal valuation and performance all these years. It’s not about Bihar or Biharis..It’s a state of the nation which needs to be constructed and re-BRANDED … yeah exactly brand it new!!!

Further, I would be happy if we could get the “litti (s)” branded and retailed…howz the thought …
Mc Litti or BBL (Bihar Baked Littis) anyways …happy new year 

Brand the New Year

With this brand new note we should start the 2010 :)
Wish everyone around the world a happy prosperous brand efficient new year!!!
