On November 8, as news channels blared projections, comments and results from across TV sets and mobile phones across the country, little was it known that Bihar was going on to win yet another battle — and this one was digital.

As the Indian electorate coordinated its blood pressure levels to the number game that follows every vote counting session, the hashtag #BiharResults slowly and steadily creeped up the charts on the list of worldwide trends, finally ending up right at the top.
