– A famous Bihari in an unfinished essay on writer Evelyn Waugh, 1949
Do you schmucks know the identity of this famous Bihari?
Since God has not bestowed Indians with enough gray matter, my innate generosity compels me to give you an easy clue – The Bihari served as an officer in the Indian Police Service.
On second thoughts, given that I’m dealing with a large gaggle of dickheads, here’s one more clue – This Bihari’s father was an opium trader.
Cast off your dunce-caps now and put your thinking caps on.
No googling allowed.
OK blockheads, today’s your lucky day.
Here, take another clue – This Bihari is more famous than Rajendra Prasad, Jayaprakash Narayan and Lalu Prasad Yadav combined (three well known personalities from Bihar).
If you dimwits can’t get the right answer with three clues and without googling, then the SI blog is wasted on you cud-chewing quadrupeds.

To the countless burdens I’m already afflicted with, I’ve added the onerous responsibility of educating my countrymen (well, former countrymen) beyond the names of Vijay, Ajith, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar.

Tell me your source and I’ll know if you googled for the answer.
Back in the day, I read one of Orwell`s short stories about his experience in the IPS in Burma ( I think it was an episode from Burmese Days. So I ventured his name.
Burmese Days has some Tamil characters (Veerasamy??) in it.
Yes, the correct answer is George Orwell, born in Motihari, Bihar.
I recalled reading one of Orwell`s short stories about his experience in the IPS in Burma back in the day( I think it was an episode from Burmese Days).And I vaguely remembered that he was born in India! So I ventured his name…
