A new Bhojpuri TV channel is born: Bhojpuria TV to enter the market this September!

A new Bhojpuri TV channel is born: Bhojpuria TV to enter the market this September! Editor’s comment: it is interesting to note that with a second TV channel dedicated to Bhojpuri, Bhojpuri language programmes are now likely to make serious inroads into the middle class homes of Bhojpuri speaking families.

The one and only Bhikhari Thakur: a 123rd birth anniversary salute! Bhikhari Thakur: a modernist Today is the 123rd birth anniversary of Bhikhari Thakur, the well-known Bihari playwright.
