Litchipuram ( Litchi Utsav )

Litchipuram, Mehsi, East Champaran: In Mehsi, there is now a place called Litchipuram named after the fruit. This was highlighted recently when Deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi inaugurated a 3-day Litchi Utsav at a local school in Mehasi. According to the government’s own data, East Champaran has been the highest producer of litchi in recent years. Along with Mehasi, Muzaffarpur, Vaishali and Samastipur districts, Bihar produces 40 per cent of the country’s litchi crop.[2]

Litchi is grown in over 15,000 hectares in the whole district but in Mehsi region alone litchi is grown by farmers in over 11,000 acres – thus the moniker Litchipuram. The name was given in 2003 by the then district magistrate S. Sheo Kumar who discovered that litchi production in the region is far greater than the neighbouring Muzaffarpur, which hogs all the fame due to earlier association.[2]

Mehsi is also known for litchi honey, produced in hives maintained in the orchards during the flowering season. It is indeed the rarest of rarities. Apart from boosting pride among the local farmers, the litchi festival is also hosting seminars with participants such as professors, scientists and specialists from Rajendra Agriculture University, Pusa, and National Horticulture Mission. As for the demand by the locals for a Litchi Research Institute, it can only be set up with the assistance of the National Council Agriculture Research, New Delhi.[2]
