Just beat it

The two-day Bharat Bandh called by 11 trade unions cost the nation thousands of crores. Noida, Kerala, Karnataka, Tripura, Odisha, even Bihar saw stray violence and worse. But Jharkhandis have been sensible, refusing to let the bandh paralyse normal life and even welcoming Bhojpuri stars for Celebrity Cricket League. The Telegraph speaks to you and your neighbour to find out how you fared

Actor Manoj Tiwari, who came in Ranchi on Thursday to drum up support for Bhojpuri Dabanggs, doesn’t have any bandh blues, flanked by two lovely reasons — starlets Urvashi Choudhary and Smriti Mishra. The brand ambassadors for Tiwari’s team upped the glam quotient at a roadshow three days before the tie against Veer Marathi at JSCA stadium. Team owner Anand Bihari Yadav also sought blessings from Dhoni’s parents
