One of the best things about India is that with so many varied cultures, there is a lot of variety among our friends too. And if you’re lucky, you will have at least one Bihari friend, which is really awesome. Here are 19 reasons why:

1. You get to try all the Bihari delicacies like litti chokha , dal-puri, gujjiyas, khaja and thekua among others!

Especially on Holi! A glass of bhang along with yummy malpuas and dahi-vadas is simply out of the world.
