Shashi Tharoor's speech on the debate on British Colonialism

Tharoor’s speech, which went viral on social media last week, debunks several commonly cited arguments that justify British colonial rule of India from 1757 (beginning with the East India Company) until the nation’s independence in 1947. The former Indian minister of state makes a compelling case for reparations, which he says indicate “the ability to acknowledge a wrong that has been done, to simply say sorry” for decades of oppression.

Jiya Ho Bihar Ke Lala Lyrics

Don't you just love this song! I have to say, this is a typical Bihari song and can't get as Bihari as this. Here are the lyrics just in case you wanted to sing along.



Jiya Tu Bihar Ke Lala Lyrics

Ho jiya ho Bihar ke lala
Haaye jiya tu hajaar saala
Hey jiya hai Bihar ke lala
Arey jiya tu hajaar saala
Ho jiya hai Bihar ke lala
Jiya tu hajaar saala
Jiya ho tu bhor ba lala
Jiya tu hajaar sala
Jiya tu hajaar 
Tani naachi ke
Tani gaayi ke,
Tani naachi gaayi sabke mann behlawa re bhaiya...

Tu maati ka laal re laala bhaiya bhaiya bhaiya
Tora magahi saan niraala bhaiya bhaiya bhaiya
Tere purkhe jiye andhera aur tune jana ujala
Tere purkhe jiye andhera aur tune jana ujala
Tu raja raja ra.. bhaiya bhaiya...
Tere god pakhare ganga tej se hai aag jhulasta
Tere kandhe chadh ke sooraj aakas mein roj pahunchta
Ho re jiya tu honhaar

Tani ghoom ghaam ke
Tani dhoom dhaam se
Tani ghoom ghaam ke, Tani dhoom dhaam se
Tani taan kheench ke Tansen kehlawa re bhaiya
Tani naachi gaayi sabke mann behlawa re bhaiya
Tani naachi gaayi sabkar dil behlawa re bhaiya
Tani naachi ke
Tani gaayi ke

Tani neeke neeke bol pe geet sunawa re bhaiya
Tani teekhe teekhe bol pe dhol bajawa re bhaiya
Tani thaal utha kar taal se taal milawa re bhaiya
Tani dholak, maandar, matka, chammach, laawa re bhaiyya
Tani oka-boka... (oka boka)
Tani chandan maati, chowka-kaathi
Tani oka-boka teen-tadoka gaawa re bhaiya
Tani chandan-maati chauka-kaathi laawa re bhaiya
Tani saans phula ke
Tani saans phula ke phoonk se dhool udava re bhaiya
Tani jaan jala ke
Tani jaan jala ke
Tani jaan jala ke geet ke tel pilawa re bhaiya

Tanau tanau... ta ta...
La la la...

Best Selling Cars in Bihar – Huge Demand

Bihar a north Indian state has been lagging behind most of the other states in India in terms of growth and economy. While the other states rushed ahead and embraced changes, Bihar took its own sweet time to join the development bandwagon. As the focus shifted towards development of infrastructure and other facilities, more and more people started buying cars in Bihar. Although it might sound strange to know, the improved law and order conditions too helped in the growth of demand for cars in the state. This is because compared to early years, the rate of kidnapping, extortion and other vices has come down, and people are now not afraid to buy cars. Thus, the state benefitted from better governance in many ways and the automobile industry too had reaped the benefits of the same.
Like the other parts of India, Bihar also has a preferential pattern when it comes to cars. Here is a look at some of the best selling cars in Bihar:

Mahindra Bolero – The Bolero is a sturdy SUV that seem to be a favourite among the car buyers of Bihar. One of the reasons for this preference could be that the Bolero can easily navigate through all kinds of tough terrains. As the roads and other infrastructure are not yet very good, using a sturdy car like this makes a lot of sense. A rough and tough SUV, the Bolero is able to perform well even under adverse conditions. Mahindra Scorpio, another best selling SUV from Mahindra also enjoys great demand in Bihar for the same reason.

Maruti Celerio – When Maruti introduced the Celerio last year, it found a lot of demand in various parts of the country. The AMT technology of the Celerio found many takers in Bihar too. Accordingly, the car was sold in great numbers in this state, following high demand for it. Likewise, other small cars from Maruti like Alto K10 and Swift also find great demand in Bihar. They are also among the best selling cars in the state.

Toyota Innova – The Innova is perhaps one of the cars that find huge demand all across India. This MPV enjoys great demand in the state of Bihar too. Very spacious and comfortable, the Innova is a super performer that can navigate through all kinds of terrains. A good car to travel with the family, Innova is one of the most preferred cars in the state.
Apart from these cars, there are many other best selling cars in Bihar. The preferences of the buyers change according to the time and availability of resources at their disposal. Hence, one can see that in big towns like Patna, the best selling cars include premium cars as well.
