I'm a learner and I'm baffled.
While speaking in a meeting relating to providing safeguard to Scheduled Castes, Mr. Athawale, a member of union cabinet, said, "…Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar has given us a Constitution..." (TOI, Friday, July 22, 2016).
बिहार की सरकार काफी समय से नक्सलवाद को महज कानून और व्यवस्था की समस्या कह कर इसकी भयावहता का सही अंदाजा लगाने में नाकामयाब रही है l बिहार में भी इनकी (नक्सली) सत्ता के आगे राज्य सरकार बेबस है, औरंगाबाद का हालिया नक्सली हमला इसका ताजा- तरीन उदाहरण है l

How and why Zakir Naik be allowed to propagate his views on Indian soil given that he is banned in multiple countries? If nations across the world have banned preachers and clerics who have posed a threat, why should India be an exception?
Now that the dust has settled after a series of arrest made in recent ‘Board Topper Scam’ in Bihar, it is time to understand what present education has to offer to humankind.
Even a novice understands the politics behind throwing a sumptuous Iftaar feast by Nitish Kumar at his official residence as the Chief Minister of Bihar. He’s not the only politician to have done so. The Congress CMs, and his foe-turned-mentor Lalu before him, had routinely hosted Iftaar or Eid-ul-Fitra party at the conclusion of the holy month of Ramazan.

Right after the Indian Independence (1947), the standard of education in Bihar was at par with what the Britishers had set out during their regime. Passing matriculation exam, with its emphasis on math and English, was tough. There used to be a category of dropouts called “Matric Fail” and just for making through the high school to the Matric Board exam, the candidates were regarded in the society as educated people. They would get lower level but respectable jobs.
शिक्षा के कारोबार का काला-धंधा देशव्यापी समस्या है, ये सिर्फ बिहार तक ही सीमित नहीं है l निःसन्देह ये दुःखद है कि हालिया टॉपर्स प्रकरणसे बिहार की बदनामी हुई है और बिहारजगहँसाई का पात्रबना दियागया हैl मगर ऐसा नहीं है कि ऐसा देश के किसी और राज्य में नहीं होता या नहीं हुआ है, अनेकों उदहारण हैं लेकिन उनको इतना तुल नहीं दिया जाता और ना ही उनको आधार बना कर वहाँ की मेधा पर सवाल खड़े किए जाते हैं l ऐसा क्यूँ? ...बिहार के प्रति पूर्वाग्रहया बिहार की मेधा से लगातार हर क्षेत्र में पिछड़ते जाने से उत्त्पन्न ढाह?
Sometime in the year 2000 or 2001, the Patna High Court had directed me to enquire in the matter of the award of a fraudulent MA degree by the Magadha University – with a first class to boot - to an influential person.
