About UsRegister Now

Together we build a strong network of people from Bihar and Jharkhand.

This is what we do in a nutshell.

BJSM is essentially a social and cultural association and aims to achieve the following objectives: To preserve, promote, foster and uphold the socio-cultural and linguistic heritage To facilitate better communication and networking To promote friendship and respect among members To facilitate smooth settlement and assimilation of new immigrants.

Heartily congratulations to you and to all the BJSM team residing in Australia and New Zealand for doing such a wonderful job in uniting our NRBs and NRJs and putting them under one umbrella in such a manner that they feel like being at home and not missing even a single festive of Bihar and Jharkhand. The recent Bihar Diwas Celebration on 27th March, 2011 in Sydney was truly outstanding as seen in the gallery. I salute your team for unwavering quest of brilliance in keeping the BJ Diaspora active and united. Your team effort in keeping the unity amongst all the NRBs is really appreciable. My best wishes are always with you all. With warmest regards and best wishes.

Glad to see this page. Didn't know anything of this sort existed. Was missing home more than on other days during diwali and chhath and that is how found this page but couldn't find anything about chhath celebration, kind of shocked.

I didn't had any idea about BJSM until yesterday. I was just getting bored at work, and decided to find out if there was any social group of biharis or jhakhandis in NZ, and I came across this website. Thank you for getting in touch with me so fast. And it was a big surprise for me when I saw an email from Aratiji today inviting me to the holi get together the week after (on 27th March). I am definitely going to meet them. Thank you and regards

Saaz aur Awaz (Reborn!)
