By now Bihar and the people of Bihar had become tough. They knew how to gather the pieces and start over. But this start over was not as easy as it had already been in the past. With the population taking upsurge and the world being connected globally over strong phone networks, people started losing hope in their state’s government and did no longer believe that employment would be easy for them on the lands of their state.

Consequently, the inflow and outflow of the population were witnessed. The people from the towns and cities migrated to ‘better off’ towns and cities in search of work, and people from villages came to the cities and towns in search of a better and uplifting lifestyle. Since the entire state was turbulent, people assumed that there would be a lot better opportunities in other states.

Consequently, people from towns and cities along with people of villages started moving to other cities in search of work and hence to achieve the dream of more money. They managed to find work in abundance, but again the quality was compromised and hence, they either had to turn up to become migrant workers, guards, vendors etc. These people often took double, triple shifts to manage their needs in big cities and also to send money home.
