Bihar
A Baba Rhyme

This year, former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi, who unfailingly celebrates Chhath puja, gave it a miss. After the marriage of all her seven daughters, she apparently has no one to help her with the puja. She is likely to resume only after finding suitable bahus for her two minister-sons, Tej Pratap and Tejashwi Prasad. The grapevine has it that a hunt is on for brides for the two eligible bachelors. There’s talk that Tej Pratap may marry yoga guru Baba Ramdev’s niece, strengthening ties between the Baba and Lalu Prasad Yadav, who had earlier this year endorsed one of Patanjali’s beauty products.
