About Bettiah Online
Bettiah Online is a tribute to the place that is close to my heart. Bettiah Online had its beginning with couple of pages dedicated to Bettiah on my first personal website hosted on Yahoo! Geocities "Ayaz n' his own World!", then as a part of my official website at IIT Bombay, where I did my PhD. Now it has its own exclusive place on the web as www.bettiahonline.com. It will also be available on other similar primary domains, viz. www.bettiahonline.org, www.bettiahonline.net, and www.bettiahonline.in in near future. These domain names have already been acquired. Its Bettiah Club, which is there since Yahoo! Geocities days, has brought over 100 people from across the globe, who are in some way or another related to Bettiah.
Bettiah is a small town and headquarters of the West Champaran district, near Indo-Nepal border, 225 Kilometres north-west of Patna, in Bihar. It was the seat of the majestic Bettiah Raj, established in the 17th century. Its palaces and temples narrate its magnificient history.
