History has witnessed the great and gallant contributions of the Bhojpuri region since India’s freedom struggle. Bihar and Jharkhand take pride serving in the army, the police or IAS. Their undying passion in contributing to the society and the nation is admirable. It’s the valour of these bravehearts that keeps our head held high with pride. This Independence Day, ZEE Biskope rejoices the fervor of these heroes who protect our freedom by guarding the borders.
