  1. I recently went through an article written by eminent journalist Prabhu Chawla in 'Smriti Kalash':commemorative volume on Satyendra Narain Sinha;it has changed my perception about the late leader completely.Had a respected leader and disciplinarian like Satyendra Babu been the CM of Bihar for a full term;the state would have benefitted a lot.It's really pity that the current Bihar leaders have forgotten his contributions."Chhote Saheb" was a statesman who stood for values and principles;as the President of Bihar Janata Party in 1977,he mentored youth leaders like Raghuvansh Pd. Singh,Nitish Kumar,Subodh Kant Sahay,Lalu Prasad,Kariya Munda & Narendra Singh.He pioneered educational reforms and piloted Panchayati Raj system in Bihar.
