Finalisation of building plan of Yatri Nivas at Radhamadhavjieu Mandir at Radhakunda

The 128th General Assembly of Shri Radha Madhavjieu Seva Puja Parichalan Kendriya Samiti was organized recently at Tinokhal, Patherkandi, district Karimganj, Assam,where suggestions were invited for building up of Malthep and a Yatri-Nivas in the mandir premises.

As there were no representations from Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Ahmedabad, an open letter was initiated, on it’s behalf, by Shri Rebati M Sinha, Working President,NBMM,
Central Committee, and was sent to the presiding officer of the General Assembly,with the following points.

(1) If the building plan is not ready for execution, comments may please be invited with a time frame, so that a refined body-plan could be prepared on receipt of those comments, such as addition, alteration and modification.

(2)A sanction should be obtained for commencement of work from the local authority, Radhakund.

(3)The General Assembly should pass the budget and arrangement to be made to raise the fund accordingly.

(4)Tender should be floated indicating the time frame.

(5) It would be better if Bishnupriya Manipuri community of Delhi be included in the project. Specially the inclusion of Shri Kajal Sinha, a retired Addl. Chief Engineer from Tripura state and the sevait of Radha Madhavjieu Mandir, Shri Krishnakanta Debabarmana.

(6)The project consultant should be made responsible for timely completion of the project.

(7)Austerity should be maintained on miscellaneous expenditures.

The open letter was read out in the assembly for its acceptance; but,there is no communication received yet from the authority.

About a month back, Shri Rebati M Sinha received a phone call from Shri Kajal Sinha, stating that the drawing brought by the Sevait, Shri Krishnakanta Debabarmana, have a discrepancy, and a thorough examination was essential, for which his services is needed.

And accordingly, discussions took place telephonically between him and Shri Kajal Sinha and as a result a location plan of Yatri Nivas was prepared by Shri Kajal Sinha, assisted by Shri Bishwajit Sinha, an engineer from Delhi, the Sevait was also in the team because of his technical ability.

On completion of the drawing, copies were made and dispatched to Rebati M sinha, Mumbai and another copy to president of central committee at Patherkandi, which was cordially accepted and given a green signal.

Accordingly a meeting was scheduled on 13th May at shri Kajal Sinha’s residence in New Delhi, where half a dozen of engineers and well-wishers assembled to give a final touch, among them were Shri Rebati M Sinha from Mumbai and Shri Bishwajit Sinha from New Delhi. The Sevait Shri Krishnakanta had arrived in the city to take part; but due to urgent call from Radhakund, he had to rush back.

When it was asked, why was a rework on this blue print? At first, no one was willing to answer; but ultimately Rebati M Sinha broke the silence, saying that he could not understand why an engineer from Nabadwip,West Bengal,be engaged for Radhakund in Uttar Pradesh. Pointing at the drawing, he said that why only 2 ½ feet gap between Mandir and the building be maintained,where no one could walk comfortably. He had an apprehension whether the engineer was briefed about our requirement while preparing the drawing at first hand or not. He also told that because of metro cities’ hue and cry, people at the helm of the affairs changed their mind and asked us to carry on reworking.

The 'Star' Krishankant Sinha of Space City Sigma

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi It is a myth that the all-knowing Internet knows everything. One such myth relates to old television stuff aired on Doordarshan before 1990. Search in Google “Space City Sigma”, the search engine would throw up reminiscent results from the people who still long for those days. Those days were really golden days. Krishankant Sinha in the role of Captain Tara in Space City Singma For those who have watched Doordarshan some 15 to 20 years back, am sure they will have nostalgic memories of it. The days when possessing a now ubiquitous looking television set was a luxury. It was a neighbour’s envy product. It was a visual product to showoff, to flaunt that we have a television set . Those were the days when black and white, locked television was rarely found in homes. The days became immortal for teleserials like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Swami’s Malgudi Days (Ta-Na-Na-Na…), Ek-Do-Teen-Char (Title song: Ek do teen char, chaaro mil ke saath chale to
