Bihar Fraternity (बिहार फ्रेटर्निटी, بِھار فرَیٹرنیٹی) is started by some like-minded individuals to bring all expatriate Biharis living in and around Germany to share the common bonding. It started small but with active engagement and small meet-ups, the forum soon took the shape of a full-fledged vibrant organization.
The eastern state of India, Bihar has seen many glorious days in past and today it is facing some challenges of perception. As some bright brains migrated to other parts of India and of the world, it was necessary to build a platform to preserve our common roots, culture, language and tradition alive. Germany not being an English speaking country, did not attract much attention and the expatriate Biharis always felt left out. Using this platform, we make an attempt to bring all the Biharis together in the land of Goethe and Bismark.
Though people in Germany know about India, more so when qualified armies of software engineers started landing in this country, they are not at all aware about the state of Bihar . Through this forum, our aim is threefold. One, to get Bihari diaspora together and share our bonding; two, to introduce Bihar to the people of Europe and three, to make positive changes in the lives of people who are still nurturing our roots in our home state.
Going forward we plan to make Bihar a global brand that is built by we Biharis. We plan to contribute in the areas of rural education, agriculture, primary healthcare, entrepreneurship, renewable energy, art and literature.
