Bihar a Major Educational Center
You must have heard about education in India while studying the history of India. At one time Bihar was counted among the major centers of education. Nalanda University, Vikramshila University and Odantapuri University were the glorious learning centers of ancient Bihar. Although the education system of Bihar is in a very poor condition at present due to many reasons, but the effort is to free itself from the debt of the motherland by making it a major educational center once again. Due to the deteriorating education system of the state, today the youth of Bihar are making Bihar proud by waving their flag in many competitive examinations of the country.
