    March 22 marks the formation day of the state of Bihar and is called as ‘Bihar Diwas’. Each year the Government of Bihar declares the day as a public holiday that applies to companies, offices, and schools that comes under the jurisdiction of the State and Central government.

    The day is celebrated by organising programmes and events including performances by Bollywood personalities and announcement of initiatives by the government. You will be surprised to know that the day is celebrated not only in India but also in countries including Australia, Canada, United Arab Emirates, Mauritius, Britain, and Trinidad.

    Bihar Diwas was first celebrated on a large-scale in 2010 in the tenure of Nitish Kumar. He is the current Chief Minister of Bihar who also served as the Chief Minister of Bihar from 2005 to 2014 and from 2015 to 2017. He was looking for a day that could be the state’s official day of celebration.

    Taking into consideration the fact that the state of Bihar was carved out from the Bengal Presidency on March 22, 1912, the day was selected as Bihar Diwas.
