Oh yes, it was nice feeling. Yes, if somebody is visiting, most of the elders will come and will chat. I don't have much pictures, but I will see if I can find more. 300 KMs, Patna is nearest one. But RSA covers some nearby area, don't remember exactly, but within 25-50KM range. Of course, its open border. Just one check-post. I have been to different borders few times. And this 6-7 KM is from all village roads, so one has to go by by-cycle only. The border, with roads (bad condition as of now, work is in progress), is around 15-20KM. You can get all Nepali items there, but beware of FAKE currencies, easily available. I was aware of this place and time was perfect to have a breakfast. I was in Durgapur, on 1st Nov as well, returning. I spent night in a Hotel, Rose Valley, near some big mall, I think it was Junction mall or so. Bihar, most of the roads are in excellent condition, and work is super fast on non-completed ones. But if you stuck in any non-completed, you will be in hell. This shows how bad the situation was. Also, with improvement in Law & Order, I saw ladies also moving, with families, in middle of night, during durga pooja celebration, a great change. That time situation was different, and it looked Bihar is mis-using Jharkhand's minerals etc. Just hope one good government comes to JH, it has lots of things to offer. JH has so many tourist places, but with Maoist issues, all are in bad shape.
