His two assisting editors are Srikant and Abhay Kumar, and the book has been brought out by Bihar State Archives (BSAFirst, Bihar, comprising present day Odisha and Jharkhand, was carved out of the then Bengal on March 22, 2012, but the making of what is called 'modern Bihar' became a reality only after it got its Patna high court in 1916 and Patna University in 1917, setting the course for the future growth trajectory of the province.
"Yes, the department of history of Delhi University has included the book in its regional studies section for M Phil syllabus. Moment should be seen as recognition to the meaningful efforts that went behind the book that is exhaustive in scope and also very comprehensive. Overall, the credit for it should go to CM Nitish Kumar for initiating multi-dimensional celebration of Bihar Diwas in 2012. It made the book possible," said Aounshuman.In his foreword to the book, the CM noted, "The work, in a thematic framework, traces the evolution of movement for the separation of Bihar from Bengal, and in the process, it enters into some interesting by-lanes of the movement."As BSA director Vijoy Kumar puts it, "Sources used are indeed extensive, ranging from unpublished official records and sources to newspaper reports, letters to editors, articles, comments, extracts of books, memoirs, speeches and advertisements etc. collected from various archives and libraries across the country."
Asked about the reception of the book in the academic circles of Bihar itself, Aounshuman said, "It is at the initial stage. Four senior college teachers of history have already given their remarks to BSA, calling the book as 'most enduring work.' The BSA itself has to decide the mode of distribution to reach out to various universities and colleges."Overall, the source materials used and collected throw light on emergence of Hindi both as national and Bihari regional marker, apart from various aspirational demands, like provision of facilities for economic, educational and institutional growth and cultural revival of the people suited to a 'self- contained state'. "Even at that point of time, the general Hindu-Muslim unity was the bedrock of the movement. In fact, the contemporary sources called it 'Bihar Model' that could even be practised nationally," Aounshuman said.
