Khechurir Palee at Radhakund


By Rebati Mohan Sinha


I have been hearing from Delhities that every year during nine-day celebration of Rath Yatra they come down to Radhakund with a full load of men and material to celebrate the occation.We, the Mumbaities, are quite jealous of them and decided to be a part of it and contacted the organizers at Delhi and they gave the green signal. As there was a outstanding request for attending a meeting at Radhakund, immediately Shri Kajalkanti Sinha was contacted at Delhi for arranging the khechurir palee at Radhakund.

On July 07.2008 the Delhi and Mumbai parties landed at Mathura junction and from there we set for Radhakund and reached there safely.In the evening we had discussed about the invitees,who would be with us in the celebration on July 08.2008.It was decided that all the Meitei manipuris be approached,and accordingly we invited them from all the twenty eight leipham :1.Mahaprabhu Mandir 2.Giridhari Mandir 3.Gopinatha mandir 4.Nabin Kishore Mandir 5.Acharya Prabhu Mandir and so on.


The celebration started with sendha aarty by brajabasini of Mandir and joined by others later.The next attraction was Joidev and it was performed very well,and almost all people gathered there had participated.And our last and final item was to prosad lokorani.A special `khaaror hou` was served with khechuri .

Shri kajalkanti Sinha and myself stood in front of all the invitees with our folded hands, while they were having their prosad.On behalf of both Dehities and Mumbaities I thanked the people present there and also I thanked the Mandir sevait without whose support we could not have succeeded,and never the least, the purohit deserved accolades from all of us for tasty Prosadom he had prepared.The celebration ended in a great note.The next day,we departed from Radhakund with a happy mood promising that we would be meeting next year at the same place same time.

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

He was born to a Xatriya Manipuri family. His father Sri Sanatan Pandit was a Sanskrit teacher and mother Srimati Malati Devi, a house wife. Sadhu Baba from his childhood was indifferent to all worldly happenings. He was engrossed in chanting the name of Lord Krishna. Along with other students of his age, Sadhu Baba started taking lessons of grammar and other spiritual literature from his father. At a very young age he lost his mother but he was brought up with utmost love and care by his step mother. At the age of eighteen, Sadhu baba lost his father, so, to continue his spiritual education under the guidance of Rajpandit Mineshwas Swarbabhwam Bhattacherjee, he went to Tripura. But within one year he made up his mind to visit all the holy places and as such he took permis
