कितना अलबेला नाम है ‘नेकटाई । एक पेंच दायीं ओर और दूसरा बायीं ओर। एक ऊपर से और फिर यों । लीजिए, नेकटाई की गाँठ तैयार हो गयी । शीशे में मुंह देखिए, गले का नक्शा एकदम बदला हुआ पायेंगे। गले के हुस्न में जिस टेंदुए ने बदमजगी पैदा कर रखी थी, वही गला एक कुशल माली के साधे हाथों द्वारा गुलदस्ते की तरह अब शोभायमान होने लगा है।

Dear Chief Minister

Sir, I have failed. But I am not among those 16 lakh students that failed this year. Rather I constitute a large part of the general public of Bihar which has failed along with its students.
