Achievements

 Bhumihars have always been emblematic icon caste for Land control.Bhumihars had control over 45% of agricultural land in bihar and wielded a great political strength in Pre-Mandal politics of Bihar as Brahmins all over the country. At one time this caste contributed 19 MPs out of total 54 Lok sabha seats in Bihar. It is a fact that Bhumihar Brahmin’s contribution to the freedom struggle of India and the upliftment of downtrodden in Bihar is unmatched by any other community in Bihar. Many think that Bihar was the best administered state in India under the tenure of Dr.Sri Krishna Singh, who was a Bhumihar Brahmin and the state saw most of its development under his tenure only. This caste is vilified even though the first peasant struggle in India against zamindari was started by Swami Sahajanand Saraswati and the communities to benefit most from it were Yadav, Kurmi and Koeri (backward castes) who got the land ownership at the cost of Bhumihar Brahmin zamindars. He is still one of the most revered leaders of peasants. In 1990s the politics in Bihar was done with the sole basis of targeting the upper castes, more particularly the Bhumihar Brahmins. The per cent population of the Bhumihars in Bihar has also increased from a lowly 2.9% to 4.6% after Jharkhand was separated from it, making them politically significant. List of Notable Bhumihar Brahmins Pre-independence

• Swami Sahajanand Saraswati : Born in uttar pradesh(village:deva, ghazipur) Social worker, saint, was the foremost leader of peasants of the previous century. International journalists term him as one of the ten most influential people of India of the last century. Our Indian journalist have largely glossed him over and ignored him as a caste leader when the fact is that he worked for all peasants irrespective of their caste. It was at the behest of the yadav peasants that he formed Kisan sabha which became the biggest anti -zamindari peasant movement of India. Landlords and big zamindars both respected and feared him. Other brahmins who lived off the donations of these hardworking brahmins like bhumihars, chitpawans, tyagis and anavails didn’t consider them equal to their social status and consider them beneath them in social hierarchy. Swami Sahajanand worked for the equal status for these hardworking brahmins.

Young Yogendra made his greatest contribution to the cause of Indian freedom between 1930 and 1942, as one of the leaders of the revolutionary movement in Bihar and U.P. becoming “Almost a legendary figure for his many exploits”. He was a close associate of Bhagat Singh and Batukeshwar Datta. He had to serve prison terms for a total of more than sixteen and a half years for his revolutionary activities. During imprisonment in different jails of India, he was subjected to extreme torture, which corroded his iron constitution.

• Baikuntha Shukla : Great nationalist who was hanged for murdering Phanindrananth Ghosh who had become a government approver which led to hanging of Bhagat Singh,Sukhdev and Rajguru. He was a nephew of Yogendra Shukla. Baikunth Shukla was also initiated into the freedom struggle at a young age taking active part in the ‘Salt Satyagraha’ of 1930. He was associated with revolutionary organisations like theHindustan Seva Dal and Hindustan Socialist Republican Association. The execution of the great Indian revolutionaries Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev in 1931 as a result of their trial in the ‘Lahore conspiracy case’ was an event that shook the entire country. Phanindra Nath Ghosh, hitherto a key member of the Revolutionary Party had treacherously betrayed the cause by turning an approver, giving evidence, which led to the execution. Baikunth was commissioned to plan the execution of Ghosh as an act of ideological vendetta which he carried out successfully on 9 November 1932. He was arrested and tried for the killing. Baikunth was convicted and hanged in Gaya Central Jail on May 14, 1934. He was only 28 years old.

• Pandit Raj Kumar Shukla : After his return from South Africa, Mahatma Gandhi started the freedom movement in India by his satyagraha in the Champaran District of Bihar at the request of Raj Kumar Shukla– against the British, who were forcing the local farmers to plant indigo which was very harmful to the local soil. In India’s struggle for Independence the “Champaran Satyagraha”, marks a very important stage. Raj Kumar Shukla drew the attention of Mahatma Gandhi, who had just returned from South Africa, to the plight of the peasants suffering under an oppressive system established by European indigo planters. Besides other excesses they were forced to cultivate indigo on 3/20 part of their holding and sell it to the planters at prices fixed by the planters. This marked Gandhiji’s entry into the India’s Struggle for Freedom. On his arrival at Motihari, the district headquarters, accompanied by Raj Kumar Shukla, Gandhiji was ordered to leave by the next available train which he refused to do and was arrested. He was released and the ban order was withdrawn in the face of a, “Satyagraha” threat. Gandhiji conducted an open enquiry into the peasant’s grievances. The Government had to appoint an enquiry committee with Gandhiji as a member. This led to the abolition of the system. Raj Kumar Shukla has been described by Gandhiji in his “Atmakatha”, as a man whose suffering gave him the strength to rise against the odds. In his letter to Gandhiji he wrote “Respected Mahatma, You hear the stories of others everyday. Today please listen to my story….. I want to draw your attention to the promise made by you in the Lucknow Congress that you would come to Champaran. The time has come for you to fulfil your promise. 19 lakhs suffering people of Champaran are waiting to see you.” Gandhiji reached Patna on 10 April, 1917 and on 16 April he reached Motihari accompanied by Raj Kumar Shukla. Under Gandhiji’s leadership the historic “Champaran Satyagraha” began. The contribution of Raj Kumar Shukla is reflected in the writings of Dr. Rajendra Prasad, first President of India, Acharya Kriplani and of course, Mahatma Gandhi himself. Raj Kumar Shukla maintained a diary in which he has given an account of struggle against the atrocities of the indigo planters, atrocities so movingly depicted by Deen Bandhu Mitra in “Neel Darpan”, a play that was translated by Michael Madhusudan Dutt. This movement by Mahatma Gandhi received the spontaneous support of a cross section of people, including Dr. Rajendra Prasad, who ultimately became the first President of India.

    You must forgot one more reputed Zamindar family “SHAISTAPUR ESTATE”. Shaistapur Village is in between Bakhtiyarpur and Barh railway station called AthmalGola Railway Station. This is one of the reputed Zamindari Estate in Bihar and having close relations with all Estates above mentioned in your page. This Shaistapur Estate having large amount of land which is unused or captured by nearby Gundas. I am one of the family member living in US. But unfortunately our generation who is in 55’s 60es is a very spoiled generation of Bhumihar. This generation at present lost his credibilities was having in society and having insignificant contribution to the Bihar Governnment or Business or Society. As of now they are more involved in pulling legs of his/her close associates. If the same trend continues , days are not far when Bhumihar will do naukri/chakri in Yadav’s home as BRAHIL JEE. We cannot change past but we can change future. We have to teach our childerens next generations that importance of honesty , importance of Unity among our own cast atleast , importance of helping hand , importance of loyal to his own relatives and automatically every thing will be ours. Again we can bring back our glory what be have lost now. No one except Bhumihar has a capacity to rule Bihar. Our first CM has proved this that at time many industries and factories are coming to Bihar espesially in Bhumihar belt.

    Also as my personnal opinion “Brameswar Mukhiya” name should be in list. I am not promoting any criminal man’s attitude here or as a founder of Ranvir Sena. But at that time It was a question of not only Bhumihar respect but about our native land security , Womens / Girl security , but the main question was to survive our generation. At that time our all oppenents want to eliminate us all completely from BIHAR. At that time was a fight for survival and we are in need for a people of great Leader attitude and what a simple villager “Brameshwar Mukhiya” alias Mukhiya jee did. If he wants he can fought for election but never. He did a favour to all Bhumihars of Bihar not only Jahanabad district.
    Please do not think that I am from Jahanabad or any of his relative but this Website is about the contribution of Bhumihar for his own caste or society. If you can add his name “Late Mukhiya Jee” then it will be a graet respect and homeage to them.

    Sharing sporadic unorganized information about our ancestors or our past will not help to make our forthcoming generations proud. A lively organisation to involve people from all walks of life, a common platform to share our views independently, an organized well informed and well written history to be proud upon, honest charitable activities and fund raising programs at grass root level, collective decisions and executions of social reforms are the mantra once adopted and implemented, will make our society robust and vibrant. For example, We should learn lessons from Gujarati, Marwardis, sikhs and Jains for doing business as well as for doing charitable activities, whereas we are far behind them.

    Late Dr G P Sinha, Ex V.C Patna University, is not in the lis.

    • Rajnish Sinha
      October 20, 2015, 9:53 am

      Dr. G.P. Sinha, one of the most brilliant products of Patna University, a professor of national repute and a distinguished scholar of Cornell University of U.S.A. was born on the 1st day of September 1921 in Kala Dumra, a village in the district of Siwan, Bihar. His father Late Shri Sita Ram Sinha was a farmer. His Mother Late (Mrs.) Tetri Devi was a pious household lady.Right from early childhood he was interested in learning. He had a curious mind and was eager to know about everything, which he could find new within his surroundings. On his own initiative he started attending a primary school in the village at the age of seven years. His first teacher was Late Shri Ram Baran Tewari.
      Once, the school inspector, Late Mr. Gaya Ojha visited the school for inspection purposes. During the course of inspection he was very much impressed by the responses of a little boy ‘Ganesh’ (Nick name of Prof. G.P. Sinha) and decided to take him to Atauli Rampur for proper education. He persuaded his parents and thus he was allowed to go along with the school inspector. He was admitted into the Rampur Atauli High School from where he passed the matriculation examination securing first division.

      The head master of the school, Late Shri Sakal Prasad, was so happy by his result that he himself managed for his admission into Rajendra College Chapra for further studies. He graduated from this college in 1944, which was then a unit of Patna University. He obtained his M.A. degree in Economics from Patna University in 1946 and in the same years he was appointed a Lecturer in the Department of Political Science of Patna University on adhoc basis. In 1947 he was appointed a lecturer in the Department of Economics in Ranchi College, Ranchi.

      Immediately after the passing of the Factories Act of 1948 which provided for the appointment of Labour welfare officer in establishments registered as factories the need was felt to establish a separate post graduate department which could prepare competent personnel for appointment to the post of welfare officers. On the initiative of Late Shri Jagjeewan Ram, the then union minister for Labour & Employment, Government of India, a decision to this effect was taken by Sir C.D.P.N. Sinha the then vice-chancellor of Patna University and Dr. G.P. Sinha who was working in Ranchi College at that time was approached by Prof. Gorakh Nath Sinha, the then D.P.I. Government of Bihar and Sir C.P.N. Sinha the then Vice-Chancellor of Patna University to come back to Patna University and take the headship of the newly created department of Labour and Social welfare. Thus, Dr. G.P. Sinha became the founder head of this department. Under his able leadership the department grew over the course of time and attained great heights. His assiduity in shaping the department and giving proper direction to the careers of its students yielded necessary results and the very first batch of students whom he taught produced three I.A.S. officers. They included Mr. Ishwari Prasad, Mr. Kamta Prasad and Mr. J.C. Kundra. Subsequently, Mr. S.K. Dutt of the same batch was also elevated to the rank of I.A.S. Very soon Dr. G.P. Sinha became popular in the university and began to be considered as the guiding Star of the Department. In 1954 he left for Cornell University of U.S.A. from where he obtained his Ph. D. degree. In 1956 he came back and joined the department which he served as professor and head till February 1983 when he was appointed the Vice Chancellor of Patna University.

      Through his lectures, articles and scholarly researches he acquired on outstanding position in the academic world. For the students and teachers of the Department he was a symbol of inspired versatility and an epitome of illimitable energy.

      A TEACHER PAR EXCELLENCE

      Dr. G.P. Sinha was a teacher in true sense of the term. He had a forceful personality creative methods with a high sense of dedication. As he was himself an ideal person he had wholesome influence upon his students. Despite having engagements of diverse nature he used to engage maximum number of classes in the department himself. He was very punctual and used to motivate all his colleagues to be good time managers. His professional ability provided him the faith in the nobility of the students. His sympathy, love and equable temper created such qualities in the students as well. He used to encourage them to rely upon themselves by initiating them into the scientific methods of analysis and synthesis. They used to develop self-confidence and ability to solve many of their problems themselves. He strongly believed that education must result in the perfection of humanity. Besides giving his students insights into various issues relevant to their course he strived hard to inculcate in them the eternal values of morality, righteousness, justice, truth, goodness and beauty. He engaged classes even after relinquishing the post of vice-chancellor honourarily. Even a day before he died he came to engage classes when the weather was very foggy and temperature was considerably low.

      A FIRM BELIEVER IN SECULARISM, SOCIALISM AND DEMOCRACY

      Dr. G.P. Sinha was a strong believer in secularism, socialism and democracy. He carried forward the rich traditions and glorious heritage of his teacher Dr. Gyanchand and gave his students and friends the desired orientation towards secularism, socialism and democracy. Inside classrooms and outside Dr. Sinha’s commitment to these values inspired generations of students and carried in them an urge to uphold these values in their lives. In close cooperation with Dr. A.K. Sen, a famous physician of Patna and several other prominent persons of Bihar he established the Citizens Forum, ‘Ekta Manch’ (Centre for Communal Harmony); ‘Pustak Manch’ and ‘Centre for Secularism, Socialism and Democracy’. Adult Literacy centers were also established under his guidance in different localities in Patna. He had a strong conviction in the desirability of social and national integration, which he thought to be crucial to the creation of a strong and united country and an essential pre-condition for all progress. According to Dr. Sinha promotion of mutual understanding, respect for the culture, traditions and ways of life of different sections of the Society was the prime need of the nation. He used to lay great emphasis upon the need to develop ‘responsible and alert citizenship and growing identification of people not with sectional loyalties.

      A PERSON SENSITIVE TO DISASTERS & NATURAL CALAMITIES

      Dr. G.P. Sinha was highly sensitive to disasters and other crisis situations, such as floods, draughts, industrial accidents, earthquakes etc. He used to give quick response in proportion to his capacity wherever and wherever the situation so demanded. In 1967 he formed the Patna University Relief Committee and mobilized the teachers and students of Patna University to engage themselves in relief operation for the sufferers of draught in Bihar. He and his associates also collaborated with Late Shri Jai Prakash Narain at whose initiative the Bihar Relief Committee was formed and relief work was taken up on a massive scale. The city of Patna witnessed the fury of floods twice i.e.; in 1966 and again in 1975. The whole southwest portion of the city was inundated. Under the leadership of Dr. G.P. Sinha and Dr. A.K. Sen rescue work was started immediately in all the concerned areas. Relief materials were collected and proper distribution was made among the sufferers specially those who were the slum dwellers and needy persons of other localities. During the period of Bihar Sharif riot of 1981 continuous efforts were made to re-establish peace and harmony in the affected areas and to identify such persons of Bihar Sharif and its adjoining areas who had saved the lives of persons of other communities at the risk of their own lives. On the eve of Gandhi Jayanti all such persons were invited and were publicly honored in Gandhi Sanghralya, Patna. The idea of identifying and publicly honoring the persons concerned was given by Dr. G.P. Sinha himself.Immediately after the holocaust of Bhopal Gas Disaster in 1984 Dr. G.P. Sinha decided to launch a P.G. Diploma course in Industrial Safety Management in Patna University. He realized the need to prepare a group of young students who have the necessary skill to identify and evaluate process hards for the purposes of taking control measures which otherwise may lead to disasters. This course is effectively being run and the students after completing this course are serving not only in India but in Turkey, Iran, Egypt and other Middle East Countries.He also introduced a P.G. Diploma Course in Rural Management and Development in the university which is now a full fledged Master’s Course of two years duration with the approval of the University Grants Commission.Dr. G.P. Sinha used to say that disaster situations cannot be handled by government machineries alone. The whole community should involve in the process and should take part in the activities undertaken to meet the crisis situation. He used to lay great emphasis on the need to evolve some permanent mechanism to meet the challenge. He was of the view that the existing system of education was responsible for increasing the gulf between the educated and un-educated classes. He used to say that the intellectuals should try to become a real service group striving to uplift the masses and should resist from mere protecting and promoting their self-interests and privileges. He used to emphasis the need for community services and called upon the teacher and students of Patna University to play a crucial role in organizing such services wherever possible. He strongly supported the idea of making N.S.S. a compulsory part of the curriculum in educational institutions.

      A PASSIONATE LOVER OF SPORTS AND GAMES

      Dr. G.P. Sinha was a passionate lover of sports & games. Being the in charge of games and sports in Patna University he did his best to promote sportsmanship among the students and teachers of the university. This is why he used to have a galaxy of sports loving teachers like Dr. A.K. Ganguli, Dr. S.N. Sinha, Dr. Suresh Prasad, Dr. Prem Kumar, Dr. Shamshad Hussain etc. around him who were always ready to act as per his advice. They used to encourage students to take part in games and were able to identify the talented sportsmen from among the students of various colleges and departments. In those days Patna University teams of various disciplines such as cricket, hockey, football, table tennis, badminton etc used to comprise very smart and talented students and bagged trophies at various tournaments organized at the state and the zonal levels. Patna University had the distinction of holding inter-university and inter-zonal meets of football, hockey, volleyball, badminton and cricket at frequent intervals. The people of Patna used to have the opportunity of watching players of national teams in action. Some prominent players who participated in such inter-university and inter-zonal meets included Prakash Padukune, Ashok Mankad, Vengsarkar, solkar, Parsanna etc. When Dr. G.P. Sinha became the Vice-chancellor of Patna University he decided to form two separate Boards one for sports and games and the other for fine arts. These boards were constituted on sound lines and were provided necessary financial assistance to build strong teams of various disciplines. Boys and girls were motivated to take part in dance, drama, vocal and instrumental music and other areas of fine arts such as photography, sculpture etc. The special measures taken yielded fruitful results and the Patna university team at the National Youth Festival bagged highest number of gold medals, consecutively in two years. His love for sports and games culminated in his death in Moinul Haque Stadium of Patna where he had gone for his morning walk and received a massive heart attack. Thus he took his death also sportingly on a sports ground.

      HOLDER OF DISTINGUISHED POSITIONS

      Dr. G.P. Sinha, by virtue of his scholarship became a professor of international repute. He was invited to deliver a series of lectures in the School of Industrial and Labour Relations of Cornell University U.S.A . He was also invited to deliver lectures by the whittmore school of Business and Economics and The Centre of International Studies Chio University. He visited France, German Democratic Republic (GDR), Yugoslavia, North Korea, Soviet Union, Japan, China, Philipines and Libya where he presented papers and presided over the sessions of international Seminars. He also visited some other countries as member of friendship delegation under the Cultural Exchange Programme of the Government of India.He was one of the founders of the Indian Society of Labour Economics and acted as its secretary cum treasure for several years. He was elected the conference President of the Society consecutively for two years i.e.; in the year 1969 and 1970. He was a member of the study Group of The First National Labour Commission, Central Wage Board, Bihar State Labour Advisory Committee, Board of Directors of the United Commercial Bank, Zonal Committee of the Life Insurance Corporation at India and the International Industrial Relations Association. In all capacities he discharged his responsibilities most gracefully.
      A CRUSADOR FOR TEACHERS’ CAUSE

      Dr. G. P. Sinha firmly believed that the effectiveness of the educational systems primarily dependent on the quality of teachers. He was of the view that Endeavour must be made to have a set of highly competent teaching personnel dedicated to the sacred task of imparting knowledge, skill, ability and insights. He pleaded that the Society should pay to them whatever it can afford for them very gracefully and teachers also must work with a high sense of commitment and sacrifice, but, subsequently it was experienced that the policies of the Government were just reverse. They were not paid whatever were recommended for them by the UGC, other pay commissions and committees. In view of the injustices, done to them we decided to form teachers’ organizations on university and State levels. He was elected the President of PUTA (Patna University Teachers’ Association) and of FUSTAB (Federation of University Service Teachers’ Association of Bihar). Several times led the university teachers’ movement successfully in a grand manner. He also strived hard to infuse among the teachers a sense of commitment and sacrifice. He was a widely respected teacher and was considered to be one of the pioneers of the University Teachers’ Movement in India.

      A FAIR AND STRICT ADMINISTRATOR

      Though Dr. G.P. Sinha acted in various administrative capacities during the period of his service but his administrative acumen was best demonstrated when he became the Vice-Chancellor of Patna University in 1983. The post of vice-chancellor was offered to him by the then Chief Minister of Bihar Dr. Jagannath Mishra himself. Initially, he was reluctant to accept the offer but on the repeated requests of the Chief Minister he gave his consent on the condition that he should be given complete freedom to manage the University in his own style and if in the larger interest of the university he felt it necessary even to violate the order of the Chief Minister he should be allowed to do so. As Dr. Jagannath Mishra had great regards for him he agreed to give him full freedom. He managed the affairs of Patna University for about 3 years nicely. He is still remembered for his openness in the sense of having wide contact with the people administered; for his sense of justice fair play and impartiality in dealing with men and matters; for his sensitivity and responsiveness to the urges, feelings and aspirations of the teachers, employees and students; for his extra-ordinary care for securing and preserving the honors and grace of the post of vice-chancellor. He succeeded in creating and sustaining an atmosphere conducive to development, growth and change maintaining his honesty and integrity in thought and action.Dr. G.P. Sinha breathed his last on the 26th of January 1990 and left a large group of mourners. But he continues to be a source of inspiration and hope for all those who are struggling against the forces which frustrate the progress of humanity.

    We have to stand united together. We have to plan a strategy to get politically powerful in Bihar. Once Bhumihaar will be politically Powerful then many of the industries and plants could be bring in Bhumihaar dominated area. This will help Bhumihaar and his next generation for forever. Even though Government will changes they could not remove industries or plants once established. Bring a Bhumihaar CM is going to be eminent in Bihar. Do something , Plan something which will bring a Bhumihaar as a CM of Bihar. We have to take this as a Challenge. Working in MNCs will not work here , We become ordinary if we donot think about our society / our cast … do something great on social level. We have to place Bhumihaar on top of the Cast in Bihar. We have to work hard for that. We have to change our thought process. In these days our tendencies to get a job in Software , buying flats in EMIs will not help to grow Bhumihaar. Poltical activity is more important. Otherwise our coming generation will not a proud of Bhumihaar like we do. We do proud because our ancestors did a great job to make Bhumihaar famous and this is done because they think on whole society. Living a undeclared life in Metros will spoil the credibility of Bhumihaar. Bhumihaar is a thing of Village … Go anywhere but do something which brings a name and fame to not only to your families but to whole Bhumihaar so that in future other cast people should recognise our potential. In a hope of good future for Bhumihaar … Everyone in Bhumihaar must do some contribution to bring name and fame to whole cast … either by money or by idea or by physical presence , economy help , helping pooors in Bhumihaar … There are many ways to make a significant contribution … This will not only help to grown up whole society of Bhumihaar but it will give a Moral pleasute to ourselfs…. Why I am writing all these things because we know that We all are capable to make contribution to our cast / society for Bhumihaar. You all may have assume that I am more castiest then YES. I am castiest If I am doing favor to develop more and More Bhumihaars. We have to rule Bihar… Will bring back the lost glory of Bihar and in turn Bhumihaar so that whole country will recognise our capacity like earlier times.
