Ratnakar Tripathy Bat-Ras [बतरस] Which Bihar do you live in ? Positive Bihar or Real Bihar ? By Ratnakar Tripathy Whether you live in Bihar or not, Bihar like home is a state of mind! I came back to Bihar for good after thirty years in 2006 with a sense of wonder, curiosity, fear and hope and was startled by the complexity of my own reactions to Bihar.

Bat-Ras [बतरस]: Playing ais bais [catch as catch can] in a conflict zone

Buddhist vihar in Kesariya: Making a molehill out of a mountain! By Ratnakar Tripathy The biggest Buddhist Vihara at Kesaria, in Champaran Yes, I once did manage to reverse the well-known proverb, turning a mountain into a tiny molehill. How? In 2008 April, I was finally able to keep a long-held promise I had made to myself years ago – I managed to visit the Buddhist site of Kesariya in east Champaran.
