Patna: Artists in Gandhi Maidan in Patna on Monday were working hard to give the finishing touch to the arrangement for the 3-day Bihar Diwas celebration that kicks off on Tuesday following the inaugural address by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

With many stalls and pavilions being erected to accommodate thousands of visitors for the state function, the annual event that marks the formation of Bihar in the post-British India, promises to feature a galaxy of noted stars, including Bollywood playback singer Alka Yagnik, who would be performing at the historical Gandhi Maidan.

Patna District Magistrate Sanjay Agrawal, who reviewed the event preparation on Monday, said the event will feature a number of cultural shows, forums, laser show, and many other attractions.

Featuring about half a dozen pavilions to showcase variety cultural programs and film documentaries, the festivity's main attractions, however, remain the food stalls featuring street items from vendors from a number of states to titillate the taste buds of food connoisseurs.

Meanwhile, Governor Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday extended his greetings to the people of Bihar to mark the formation of the state. He also urged the people to assist the government in developing the state and maintain the grand heritage of Bihar.
