PATNA: Living thousand miles away from Bihar, can not stop Biharis to celebrate the joy of their traditions and festival.Recently Non-Resident Biharis (NRB) living at Canada celebrated the Eid in much the same zeal and happiness , which they do at home.This was organised by Bihar Association of Canada (BACA) and Bihar Foundation, Canada Chapter.Over 300 Biharis attended the fest.
“We Biharis are very happy to listen good things about Bihar and we pray for the growth and development of Bihar,” quotes Menhaj Khan, the vice-chairman of Bihar Foundation, Canada Chapter.
It was a very nostalgic experience for every one present in the park, with traditional Eid Mubarak greeting and feasting on delicacies such as chicken biryani, palak paneer, chicken korma and Bihari ghughni, dahi vada, sewai and many more mouth watering dishes for vegetarian and non-vegetarian crowd to feast on. The food was catered to by a local restaurant owned by a fellow Bihari.
It was Bihari brotherhood at its best. Children and adults enjoyed a day full of outdoor activities involving various games and a small “show and tell” about Bihar and its place in Indian history. It confirms that “one can take a Bihari out of Bihar but no one can take Bihar out of Bihari,” said Rajesh Jha. It is the passion for our motherland that brought the best of Biharis living in Canada. “Such occasions provide us a platform to remember our common heritage as Bihari, which fits perfectly in a multicultural country like Canada,” said Rajesh Nandan Singh, ex-president, BACA.
