Where are the Bishnupriya Manipuri people of Myanmar?

In the radar of those location where Bishnupriya Manipuri people are residing, the country Myanmar does not show? Reason?

In the post Statistics of Bishnupriya Manipuri, we have literally come to know the hidden skeleton about this blog. The data collated shows many facts about the Bishnupriya Manipuri community as a whole. In India, if Delhi secured the highest number of hits, the blog received lesser hits from Silchar, Tripura, and Guwahati where there is a big sizeable population of Bishnupriya Manipuri. Furthermore, the blog got second highest hits from United States, if one goes deep into the statistics, though not made public, one could see the cities and the places in US, Bangladesh and Australia where our Bishnupriya Manipuri people are placed. It shows almost in every important corner of the world we have got our people located.

From the arithmetics of numbers, many inferences can be drawn. And among the inferences something that came shocking, full of surprise was the name of the country Myanmar missing in the hit list of the countries. It is a matter of concern that there has not been a single hit or click in the blog. There is more or lesser number of click from those areas where Bishnupriya Manipuri people are located in a sizeable number. The question that arises in everyone’s mind is, if they do exist, what would be their social, economical status since at this time when Information Technology plus the internet facility is omnipresent, a driving force behind the engine of prosperity, their absense in the internet pops up cornucopia of inferences.

One, the belief that the Bishnupriya Manipuri community does present in that country is false. We don’t have our existence in Myanmar. Second, for a meanwhile even if we believe that Bishnupriya Manipuri people do exist, their economic, social status is a matter of concerns. Their participation in different walks of life, perhaps, would be meagre or nil. Their primary source of income would be from agricultural fields, away from the touch of modern world.

Is there anyone who cares for them, of their plight or status? After all they are our brothers living in a country where military junta is ruling and media is nowhere.
