That's a nice bit of History Manu.

I work with quite a few Indian nationals who do consulting work. Now when they tell me they're from North Eastern India, I have a slightly better idea of what that really means.

Thanks

Hello sir,

I would like to make notice of the fact that the web-address(http://www.bcebhagalpur.net) which you have given on your site for BHAGALPUR COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING, is not the OFFICIAL site of the college. This site is not moderated by the college administration. College official site is "http://www.bcebhagalpur.ac.in" which is being moderated by college administration. So it is a request to make the above sited change, so that people can come to know about official site of the college.

with regards,
Ganesh Kumar Choudhary
