Bihar's leap from 'Rath' to 'Pushp Viman Yatra'

Believe it or not, but Bihar is well and truly in the 21st century.

Remember those 'ancient' times when political leaders used to go on 'pad yatras' to connect with ordinary people? And, later 'rath yatras', with politicians travelling in air conditioned vehicles dressed up a chariots?

An Independent MLA from Bihar, that rich state that's been laid waste by its politicians, is making a giant leap. He is planning to undertake a yatra of all the panchayats of the state in, yes, a helicopter, the modern 'pushp vimaan'.

His aerial yatra will take all of six months and will, naturally, cost a bomb, to meet which the MLA says he has sold his land for Rs 3-4 crores.

Good way to tour the state to avoid seeing poverty, deprivation, exploitation and death en route. And doing anything about it.

I think it is nothing but stupidity.What is he going to observe? Who is he going to help?
The sale proceeds from sale of land could have helped thou sounds of families in Bihar. But, politicians will never become real.
