At a time when Bihar seems to be skirted with overarching promises of political stalwarts and the ensuing hullabaloo over the forthcoming assembly elections, the soul protector and guardian of the state – Nitish Kumar- seems to have inculcated a new penchant for his DNA. Being perturbed at Modi’s jibes cracking down upon the veracity of his DNA, which according to him has also irked his fellow brothers and sisters of Bihar (the citizenry), the maverick has decided to kick off a Shabdh Wapasi campaign, wherein people would be sending their DNA samples for verification and thereafter the samples would be sent to Mr. Prime Minister who would read into the probity of the samples keeping aside his duties as the de- facto head of the nation.



Disclaimer: Although, I have taken reasonable measures to flesh out proper facts and reasoning which would wield rationality in the real term, I might end up spewing excerpts- essentially medical terminologies and definitions- that might befuddle the ones who till this date were nibbling on a facade, a facade which gives one the liberty to be terminologically color blind, wherein an individual finds it difficult to trace the difference between DNA and nativity- I am a son (Nitish Kumar) of Bihar. My DNA is similar as that of the people of Bihar. The company wouldn’t accept any loss or damage arising out of this open letter.
Dear Chief Minister,
You have been lauded for your prudence and judicious governance since you had been at the helm of affairs in Bihar. Statistical records by accredited agencies limn a positive picture of your state; however, with your sudden decision to forlorn your boon companion and palling with a renowned adversary has left your admirers awe struck.
Before taking a step ahead, I would like to apprise you of the technical meaning of the word DNA.
Adhering to the definition rendered by medical science, DNA or Deoxyribonucleic acid is a molecule that contains the instructions an organism needs to develop, live and reproduce. These instructions are found inside every cell and are passed down from parents to their children.
Considering the fact that DNA caters to a lineage which is strictly familial and doesn’t remotely cater to ones nativity, divulges the fallacy of the stand endorsed by you. Your Shabdh Wapasi campaign fails to wield rationality and the propensity of delivering something fruitful to the sate.
According to an Economic Times report, kidnapping which was nothing less than an industry during the RJD chief, Lalu Prasad Yadav’s rule, has soared up from 2693 cases in 2005 to 5570 cases in 2013. Besides that, The National Crime Records Bureau reported 3441 murders and 1128 rapes in the state in 2013, drawing a parallel with a situation prevalent during your initial years as the chief minister (2005). The reports also shed light upon the increasing caste violence pervading the state. Adhering to the report, caste violence has notched up to a whopping 6712 cases, accounting for around 17 per cent of the similar cases in the country.
Moving on to the next segment, I would like to share a snippet of the education sector that has been subjected to precarity for a considerable period of time. Despite your fervent attempts at consolidating education in the state, the lack of alacrity on the part of bureaucrats looking into the sector has turned your attempts topsy-turvy. Your state accounts for a meager share of 61.8 percent of the population being literate, as expounded by Planning Commission Census 2011.
Toeing your overt apathy for your Bihari brothers and sisters, I am sure you must be aware of your dear ones’ opinion on your credibility and work.
“The chief minister had given us a free hand. The only thing he demanded was results…But, he began to compromise when he felt the pressure of the Lok Sabha elections,” ruminates a senior bureaucrat who worked with Nitish, as quoted in Times of India report.
“Pity on you, struggling to save CM chair, once fighting for PM chair”- Santosh Singh on twitter.
“You need to run not walk from Bihar. Jokers like you are not required any more. You made Bihar Bekar” – No Conversion #HDL, Twitter
Therefore, Mr. Kumar, I think you should dilute your austerity on the DNA jibe, despite being a gargantuan issue like poverty, mortality rate and illiteracy, you should also mull over petty issues like development and growth. Hopefully, your DNA would be salvaged from a lifetime scar as you are making relentless efforts to put forth a string of DNA samples before Mr. Prime Minister, considering your unadulterated DNA would ensure your triumph.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
