Bihar Diwas has been a popular day since Chief Minister came into power, and is often an occasion to celebrate the legacy of the state, along with promoting its culture. Bihar Diwas is considered a public holiday by the state government, and this applies to all the organizations, companies and schools that come under the jurisdiction of the state and central government.

Bihar is the 13th laergest state of India, and its capital is Patna. It is also the third largest state in terms of population. Bihar has always been an essential part of the Indian History and culture, as it has a rich hub of learning, traditions and knowledge of the Maurya Empire, and the connection to the Buddhist ideology, that had an impact on the place, and across different places in the Nation.
Even though it is perceived as lagging behind in terms of development, the state has made various strides in terms of education and considerable reduction in the crime rates, while also exposing the criminal, corrupted underbelly that lies within it.
