My response[edit]

Mr. Bhadani,

My appologies for not explaining my edits. I just found out that Bihar around 1910/1914 had a population of 582,132 people, a lot less than the Bihar of India. So yes, I suppose that you are correct on the fact that Bihar in India is more prominent and more known (and also has more people) than the historical county of Hungary, also called Bihar, which no longer exists. (It is divided between Hungary & Romania) So I guess you can let Bihar in India be the main page if you want.

Sincerely, User:Hottentot

New Table[edit]

I'm trying to make a new table that looks like most of the other ones in the different Indian state articles, but it's missing a lot of information. Here's what I have so far. Please add on to this and help make it complete. --Hottentot

more to add[edit]

Hi, I've been using this article a lot for a project which I'm doing and I've noticed that the topic of economy does not have that much information to it. Also under culture, there is not a section of about clothing. I think that if either of these topics were fixed, the article would be much better. If anyone feels up to it, these sections need a little help.

Bihar to be considered as North East India[edit]

I have been seeing this article for a very long time. Earlier it read, that Bihar is a part of North India. Later it became a part of East India. Then for a brief time it was considered part of North East India along with seven-sister states and west bengal. In a recent version, It read Bihar is considered as a part of Eastern India as well as Northern India. That makes no utter so I tried editing it to revert back to the most logical sense I thought it could be, which I think is North East India. Kindly tell us your views. In my opinion it can't be North India and East India at the same time. It should be either East India or North East India to be precise. Ianuranjan (talk) 20:27, 10 May 2018 (UTC)

See Administrative divisions of India, where Bihar is in the "Eastern" division or region, which is where the article is now, IIRC. In other words, this is not purely according to relative geographical placement but to official classification. Dhtwiki (talk) 22:07, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
