Geography and climate[edit]

The village of Jhakar Bigha is located in the southwestern part of Bihar, North India, in a flat plain running alongside the Kaimur Range and Rohtas Plateau. The majority of the land is a fertile floodplain of the Son River which is a tributary of the Ganges.

The climate is sub-tropical and typical of the plains of Northern India, with hot dry summers and cool winters with cold nighttime temperatures. The monsoon season, from late June to in late September, plays a fundamental role for the village and the surrounding area because the economy is mainly based on agriculture.
