Non Resident Bihari Book 34

Non Resident Bihari is a Hindi contemporary novel by Shashikant Mishra that explores the life and challenges of a young Bihari man who moves to Mumbai to pursue his dream of becoming a civil servant. The novel is a humorous and insightful take on the stereotypes and prejudices that Biharis face in the cosmopolitan city, as well as the dilemmas and choices that they have to make between love and career.

The protagonist of the novel is Rahul, who belongs to an affluent family in Bihar. He has always dreamed of living in Mumbai, the city of dreams, and cracking the UPSC exam, the ultimate goal for many aspiring bureaucrats. He manages to get admission in a reputed college in Mumbai, where he hopes to prepare for the exam and enjoy the city life. However, he soon realizes that Mumbai is not as easy and glamorous as he had imagined. He faces culture shock, discrimination, and competition from his peers and seniors. He also falls in love with Shalu, a beautiful and smart girl from his college, who has her own ambitions and aspirations.


Rahul's life becomes a roller coaster ride of emotions, conflicts, and decisions. He has to balance his studies, his relationship, his family expectations, and his identity as a Bihari. He has to deal with the pressure of the exam, the temptations of the city, the misunderstandings with Shalu, and the prejudices of the society. He has to choose between following his heart or his mind, between staying true to his roots or adapting to his surroundings, between being a non resident Bihari or a Mumbaikar.

The novel is a witty and realistic portrayal of the struggles and joys of a young Bihari migrant in Mumbai. It is also a commentary on the social and political issues that affect Bihar and its people. The novel uses humor, satire, and irony to expose the hypocrisy, corruption, and violence that plague Bihar, as well as the ignorance, arrogance, and intolerance that mar Mumbai. The novel also celebrates the resilience, courage, and talent of Biharis, who despite all odds, manage to achieve their goals and make their mark in various fields.

Non Resident Bihari is a novel that appeals to both Biharis and non-Biharis alike. It is a novel that makes you laugh, cry, think, and relate. It is a novel that challenges you to question your stereotypes and prejudices, and to appreciate the diversity and complexity of India. It is a novel that inspires you to follow your dreams and passions, no matter where you come from or where you go.
