The right things to do

We all know that a major reason for Bihar remaining one of the most backward states in India and for a long time choosing leaders who did not care about the people's development, is the amount of illiteracy in the state.

While the efforts of any state government which tries to develop the economy of a state bears does show results, these results can be compounded by having more and more educated people.

Thus the Bihar government's announcement today to start 16,500 primary schools in 2009 is a welcome announcement. The aim is to start a primary school in each village which has a population of over 300. This will definitely give all children equal access to schools and an opportunity to improve their lifestyles. Even if half of the announced schools are functional by this year end, it would be of significant benefit for the people of Bihar.

More details about this announcement made by the HRD minister Hari Narayan Singh can be found in this article titled Govt to open 16,500 schools this year


Another interesting article published in the Times of India today read Rs 15 Cr for city's parks. Urban development minister Bhola Singh on Wednesday informed Bihar legislative council that 24 parks of Patna would be developed and beautified. This will have two advantages
1. People in Patna city will have better parks to visit and for their children to see
2. It is a welcome change from the point of view of tourism.

Thus, these are right steps being taken. I can see that the current government has the strategy that would lead Bihar towards development. What is important now is the execution of these projects. The faster the projects are executed the better. The quality of execution of these projects are also important. All these facilities must be made world class such that they serve the country for a long time to come.
