Kalpana Kumari’s performance both at National and State level has dismissed the negative generalisation against the Bihari student. People and media which ridiculed Bihar when the infamous Rubi Rai incident occurred should take a look at this and realize that Bihar is not lacking when it comes to having academic merit. It’s true that Bihar’s education system has it’s challenge but that doesn’t mean that Bihari students are any inferior. We are at par with the national level and infact we often excel at the national platforms.
We at PatnaBeats congratulate the students and hope for their glaring future and their well being.
