Humans are social animals, and with time every society has developed some multitudes. Not every individual is same, some are talkative while some shy; few pour sugar in their speeches while others subsume all the slangs they know. But there is one assemblage which is funny, quirky, intelligent and at the same time carries their heart on their sleeves- The Biharis.
Dancing to the tunes of “Lagale Tu Jab Lipistick” and flaunting “Zindigi Jhandwa, Fir Bhi Ghamandwa” on every possible occasion, the nation can never get enough of the impeccable group belonging to Bihar.
Checkout out these 5 things that everyone from Bihar or anybody who have had met them once will perfectly relate to:
THE UNDENIABLE LOVE FOR LITTI CHOKHA
All things considered, what’s superior to a nibble that flares up your nostrils lining up a series of nostalgia? Yes, Litti Chokha is one of them. And what could be better if it is accompanied with chilled Sattu? You simply cannot eat it without reminding yourself and your foodie partner the stories of your home town. (Humke bhook lagal baa.)
BEING JOYOUS ABOUT CHHATH POOJA
There’s Eid, there’s Diwali but nothing can compete the fever pitch of Chatth Pooja in Bihar. From Kharna to Thekua everything about this festival brings happiness and urges the residents to be back to their hometown any enjoy the bliss of floating Diyas especially in the morning.
WE HAVE A UNIQUE ACCENT AND WE ARE PROUD OF IT
We adapt to everything that surrounds us, be it the food, clothing or language. We can speak Hindi or English as fluent as anybody but we love our mother tongue. People may judge us for our language as soon as we mention our hometown, but we love our accent and are proud of it. That satisfaction when we hear a familiar voice saying “Pranamm” is incomprehensible. (Tani aahista aahista bola.)
WE ARE OFTEN MISTAKEN TO BE RUDE
From grassroots to skyscrapers we have opinion on everything and we are often slipped up for it. When people are taking our opinions as arguments we are actually just iterating our view. But we exactly know where to stop to not hurt others sentiments. (Are, hum keh rahe the naa…)
WE ARE THE-JUGAAD-CHAMPS
There’s nothing in the world we can’t do, and if something of that sort comes we definitely know an alternative for that. This is one reason that be it school, college or office people keep coming to us with their problems (and also this is one reason that half the electrical appliances in house never worked again, eh, but let’s not talk about it.)
You may like them, hate them but you simply cannot ignore them. Jai ho bihar ke lala!
