Biharis in Canada prayed for Bihar
Bihar Association of Canada (BACA) and Bihar Foundation Canada Chapter (BFCC) celebrated EID Milan in Centennial Park, Toronto on Sept 04th 2011 with traditional fan fare. Over three hundred NRBs living in Toronto area got together and celebrated EID Milan just the way it is being celebrated in Bihar for centuries. ‘We biharis are very happy to listen good things about Bihar and we pray for the growth and development of Bihar’ said Menhaj Khan, Vice Chairman of Bihar Foundation, Canada Chapter.
It was a very nostalgic experience for every one present in the park with traditional Eid Mubarak greeting and feasting on delicacies such as chicken biryani, palk paneer, chiken korma which also included Bihari ghughni, dahi wada, sewai and many more mouth watering dishes for vegetarian and non vegetarian crowed to feast on. Entire food was catered by a local restaurant known as ‘Patna Kebab House’ owned and operated by a fellow Bihari.
Office bearers of both organizations were in the park to meet and greet every member and make this Eid Milan a memorable experience for everyone. It was Bihari brotherhood at its best displayed everywhere. Children and adult enjoyed a day full of outdoor activities involving various games and a small “show and tell” about Bihar and its place in Indian history. It confirms that ‘one can take a Bihari out of Bihar but no one can take Bihar out of Bihari’ said Rajesh Jha. It is the passion for our motherland that brought the best of Biharis living in Canada. ‘Such occassions provides us a platform to remember our common heritage as Bihari, which fits perfectly in a multicultural country like Canada’ said Rajesh Nandan Singh, Ex-President BACA.
