Sunday Editorial-About variety within Bihar: why it should make us feel proud not worried!

Sunday Editorial About variety within Bihar: why it should make us feel proud not worried! By Ratnakar Tripathy Being away from Bihar for the next fortnight, the overpowering thought this morning is the juicy dripping litchis, which is likely to remain just a thought, a pure drooling thought without action! But since a self-respecting human being must rise above petty greed and desire and also above the envy of the fortunate folks who will be parking themselves in an orchard on a Sunday to indulge and then over-indulge, I will try to dismiss the thought of litchis in favour of some urgent ideas!... 

Sunday Editorial-RJD demands report on Janta Durbar: but why doesn’t RJD call for its own opposition Durbar?

Sunday Editorial RJD demands report on Janta Durbar: but why doesn’t RJD call for its own opposition Durbar? By Ratnakar Tripathy . In politics you often join causes that others are supporting on the basis of reasons you don’t agree with! Recently, when RJD President Ramchandra Purve demanded that the Bihar government should bring out a white paper on Janta Durbar, I support him in his demand. The reason given by him is that Janta Darbar is a disaster and the public should know. I support Purve but the reason given by me is exactly the opposite – a white paper or any other form of public...

Sunday Editorial- The future of Panchayati Raj in Bihar: an unavoidable hazard of intimate politics

Sunday Editorial The future of Panchayati Raj in Bihar: an unavoidable hazard of intimate politics By Ratnakar Tripathy Family = Panchayat: The biggest family in the world lives in BAKTWANG, India. A man called Ziona Chana has 39 wifes and 94 children Probably the most important thing to remember about Panchayati politics is that its human social context is radically different from state level or national politics. Unlike large scale politics, Panchayati politics is not impersonal and anonymous if we focus on the candidate-voter relation. The implications of this are immense. If this is difficult... 

Sunday Editorial-Growing up with Hindi: and how Hindi grew up with me!

Sunday Editorial Growing up with Hindi: and how Hindi grew up with me! By Ratnakar Tripathy Learning hindi I grew up learning a kind of Hindi in school that seemed rather removed from the milieu of Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh. I say this with hindsight, since as a growing child and adolescent I did not give much importance to this obvious hiatus. My ideals of Hindi usage and pronunciation came from what I later discovered to be the Hindi of Western Uttar Pradesh. This was also a very urbane style of Hindi, perhaps a bit too urbane to settle comfortably in the rustic climes of Bihar. I am...

Ratnakar Tripathy Ghoora- Fireside tales Eve teasing, chhedkhani in the movies and in real life: the vital difference By Ratnakar Tripathy Once upon a time, there was a boy and there was a girl! But neither knew that the other existed. One day, they ran into each other on a college campus, in a park, or even on the road. It was a moment of magic for both and certainly the gaping audience, looking for her or his ‘paisa vasool’! Then what happened? They fell in love and made their declarations of eternal love. End of the story? No! The boy boldly walked up to make contact, any kind of contact,...

Sunday Editorial:Some very good reasons why we Biharis don’t like criticism!

Sunday Editorial Some very good reasons why we Biharis don’t like criticism! By Ratnakar Tripathy You dare criticise me... This is an edit that could have been my very first for bihardays. But there are things that you have to say either with utter frankness and boldness or simply keep your mouth shut. I have found that the educated Bihari of today is in a very brittle emotional state these days. Let me explain what I mean by this. We now have the new-found task of rebuilding our self respect in full public view on the national stage. As we all understand, it can also be a very wrong time...
