Franklin Park, New Jersey, USA: The committee members of the Bihar Jharkhand Association of North America (BJANA) organized their annual summer picnic on August 06, 2017 at Davidson Park in Franklin Park, NJ with great enthusiasm.

About 300 members from Bihar and Jharkhand states gathered at the park to join the fun, meet friends, relish good food and enjoy the pleasant weather. Members were seen at barbecue stations cooking chicken, corn, paneer and tofu. The favorite was freshly cooked 'littis' and baked mashed eggplant (baigan bharta). Female volunteers happily gathered to stuff the 'littis' and cook them on the grill.
