Bihar Regiment: When the Lions Roar!!!

Our creative writers had written a blog on Bihar Regiment for a long time. Infact, they had so much to share that the debate was on the title of the blog. Finally, days after India conducted the surgical strikes in Pakistan and Bihar regiment played a vital role, we decided to title the blog  “Bihar Regiment- When the Lions Roar”.

Elephants and Lions have historically been the symbol of strength and aggression in Bihar. In the days of yore, it was the fleet of Elephant Warriors  only that the army of Great Alexander was not ready to face, hence, returned back without crossing Indus and invading erstwhile Magadha which is current day India. Elephants find a special place in Bihar’s Mithila Art depicting strength and power.  Magadh and Maurya dynasties had Lion as its symbol , hence Bihar Regiment proudly owns the badge of Ashoka Lion.

In the modern history, Bihar regiment was formed by Mir Kasim to battle the East India Company. Later, Lord Clive inducted them to British Army as Sepoy Battalions. Most soldiers came from Bhojpur region (Modern day Bihar and East UP). For over 100 years from 1740 to 1857, Bihar regiment formed the backbone of Bengal Infantry and British Empire in India. Till 1857, Danapur, a mini city near Patna, was the centre of country’s second oldest and one of the largest Cantonments of India.

Sepoy Mutiny and India’s First War of Independence:
Bihar regiment (34th and 19th Bengal Infantry) mainly constituted soldiers from Rajput, Brahmin and Bhumihar communities. So when the British wanted them to fire using greased cartridges, Bihar Regiment revolted. This was led by the famos  Mangal Pandey at Barrokpore at Kolkata. Mangal Pandey along with Ishwari Prasad proudly met gallows after three Sikh soldiers testified against them. Soon the then King of Bhojpur, Vir Kunwar Singh declared Bhojpur a free state and Bihar troops marched along with him. In the first war of Bhojpur, Bihar Regiment crushed British and few other regiments who fought with the British against India’s independence. After defeat, Britishers re-organised themselves and attacked Bhojpur with greater force. It is said that Bihar Regiment was out-numbered 1: 15 and eventually lost the battle. Importantly, it is this brave regiment that almost single handily won India its independence. The seeds of our independence were sown in this struggle.

Bihari or Purbiya and Disbanding of Bihar Regiment:
After India lost its First war of Independence, British disbanded this regiment. People from the region were chided as Purbiya or Bihari and jokes were cracked on them to keep the morale of the people of this region down. A low morale of this population meant no revolution. The people of Bhojpur, Mithila and Magadh (modern day Bihar and East UP) were not inducted into British Army for the next 84 years. Hence, once the backbone of British Indian Army, Bihar regiment did not exist until the British were to face the Japanese and Germans.

World War Two and Rebirth of Bihar Regiment:
World War Two is the war wherein fortunes changed as it progressed. Initially when Nazis kept winning, one win was evident to Great Britain in South East Asia. The Japanese were advancing in Burma and Britishers needed fighters who could fight the Chinese and Japanese. British Empire looked towards India’s most fearless region - Bihar. Thus, in 1941 was reborn the Bihar regiment. Finally, Rangoon fell and Japanese wanted to capitalise on their victory and advance. However, Bihar regiment halted their advance and later participated in Operation Tiderace winning back Singapore for British Empire from Japan. 

The Regiment in Independent India:
The Bihar regiment continues to recruit mainly from Bhojpur region of East UP and Bihar and also from states of Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Odisha and Gujarat. Two recent famous heroes are Capt. Gurjinder Singh Suri who gave the supreme sacrifice in Operation Vijay at Kargil and Major Sandeep Unikrishnan who made the supreme sacrifice fighting terrorists during Mumbai attacks.

The Uri Attack:
Indian Army and Bihar regiment were attacked by terrorists at Uri in which 19 of our soldiers (18 from Bihar regiment) attained Martyrdom. The Indian army avenged by surgical strikes inside the enemy territory. Bihar and Gorkha regiments along with the Special Forces carried out these surgical strikes.

What Lies Ahead:
The 10-year-old son of Martyr Naik Raj Kishore Singh, 6 Bihar Regiment, says my grandfather was in Indian Army, my Father has made the supreme sacrifice for Indian Army and I will also join the Indian Army. This 10-year-old, like his father, is also the son of Bhojpur. Bhojpur and Rest of India will continue to produce these brave sons.

                              Bihar Regiment and our Indian Army has many Shers in the waiting.
We rest our pen with the war cry of this brave regiment in the honor of our martyrdom brethren - “Jai Bajrang Bali”    engages in promoting and selling the original form of Handpainted Mithila / Madhubani paintings Home Decor and Handloom products. For owning one masterpiece for yourself, log on to

Summers and Mangoes : Malda and The Big Debate

There are two things that most South Asians have an experience to share- Cricket and Mangoes. Both cricket and mangoes invoke a feeling of nationalism and sub-nationalism in South Asia.
Mangoes , unlike cricket,  is a native of South Asia or erstwhile undivided India. For thousands of years we have produced more than 50% of World’s total Mango production and more than 60% of Mango Varieties globally.

Now with more than 100 varieties around, the big debate has always been – Which Variety is the Best?

In Maharashtra, Alphonso is the favourite. At Karachi, Anwar Ratol is rated the best. In some parts of Bihar, Dudhiya is the best while Mithilanchal prides itself in its own variety of Malda.  For states like Orrisa and West Bengal, Langda is the best while Uttar Pradesh loves their Dasehri.

All these famous varieties of different regions;  Malda of Mithila, Dudhiya of Bihar, Langda of Bengal and Anwar Ratol of Pakistan, belong to the same clan of mangoes. In other words, it is the same mango with a different name. Thus, in the World’s Den of mangoes, it is one variety that dominates the roost.  One reason for Malda’s dominance lies in its unique fragrance and fertile black soil which makes Malda Sweeter. 
As history has it, the Malda AAM was taken to different parts of India by Maurya dynasty and later to countries like Thailand and Malaysia by King Ashoka. With time, Malda with cosmetic changes and in the long debate of which Mango is the best has assumed different names.

While we leave the debate open on which variety is the best, at imithila, we strongly agree that Mango is undisputedly the king of fruits and which variety you like the most depends on your childhood experience and taste buds. Undoubtedly Mango as the National Fruit of India should not be in any controversy. engages in promoting and selling the original form of Mithila / Madhubani paintings on clothes and handmade paper.
