109 years ago, on this day Bengal broke away from the Presidency and formed a new state. It was the 12th state of the country. The name of this state formed in 1912 was Bihar. Therefore, we celebrate today’s day as Bihar Day. Today most countries of the world have a Democratic system of governance. Its beginning is also believed to be from Bihar. In many parts of the world, when people did not even know how to read and write, Nalanda University was the largest center of education at that time.
In the sixth century BC, the rulers of Bihar were elected by the representatives of the people. In 1935, a new state called Orissa came into existence, separated from Bihar. Which is now called Odisha. At the same time, Bihar was again partitioned in 2000 and the state of Jharkhand came into existence.
