Its daughters and sons not only fly high but have made it to the USA and other forign countries. The village has untapped treasures of historical and religious legacies. Hindu epics, especially Skandh Puran, make vivid references to the village, Dasasheeshanath Mahadeo and river Sone (Bhadrashila). Great sage Vishwamitra had his science laboratory nearby and had performed the miracle of bodily sending a living humanbeing, King Trisanku to universe. This feat can be said to be a precursor to present day feat of landing men on the Moon. Bandu is a very beautifull village bank of the Sone Nad river in Dist. Rohtas (Bihar) India.

There used to be a famous Yashisha mela here. When my father Baikunth Upadhyay (Upadhyayjee) was station master at Bhadara station, I visited that mela. I have very feeble memory of that mela. We had taken a boat ride to reach to temple.
