This village in Saharsa district is rather inaccessible. The
North Eastern Railway from Lucknow to Katihar stops at Mansi railway station.There is a
branch line of the North Eastern Railway from Mansi to Madhepura via Saharsa. This area
from Mansi to, Madhepura used to be ravaged by unpredictable floods of the Kosi River
known the 'Sorrow of North Bihar.
There used to be frequent breaches in this area during the rainy season. Even now
'Mansi railway station is liable to erosion. The recent implementation of the Kosi Barrage
near Birpur in Saharsa district and the construction of two large canals for diverting the
excess water for irrigation are calculated to contribute to the economic stability of the
district. It will also free the area from the frequent flood havocs of the Kosi.
