According to the Census of India 2001 Report, the Bishnupriya Manipuri people are residing all across the States (except Orissa) and Union Territories of India, the total population is 77,545. Data showed in the decade 1991-2001, the increase of the population is 30.92 per cent; however data on previous census is not available, it cites the language “Bishnupuriya in 1981 was withheld from publication due to the pending decision over nomenclature.”

We fall in the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European family with the languages: Assamese, Bengali, Bhili/Bhilodi, Bishnupuriya, Dogri, Gujarati, Halabi, Hindi, Kashmiri, Khandeshi, Konkani, Lahnda, Maithili, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Shina, Sindhi and Urdu, the report reads.

In the Census “PART B: Distribution of the 100 Non-Scheduled Languages-India/States/Union Territories - 2001 Census” report, the Bishnupriya Manipuri people are enterprising and are residing all over India, even in Jammu and Kashmir [9], in Madhya Pradesh the population is 1, Maharashtra [16], Karnataka [3], Kerala [2], West Bengal [41], Assam [53,812] and Tripura 21, 716.

It is to be noted that the word “Bishnupuriya”, and not “Bishnupriya”, is spread across on all the important online documents. What we have to do to correct the clerical or (...) errors?

Let us see, how the report reads in the next census – Bishnupuriya or Bishnupriya or Bishnupriya Manipuri. It has to be seen.

  1. This 2001 census data of India seems to be doubtfull and fake like in the past. 77,545?! How come it possible when Cachar district have nearly 1.5 lakh of bpm according to the survey made by Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha? This statistics remind me the pathetic and biased 1961 Census when the authority recorded only 13(thirteen) male in place of nearly 20,000( twenty thousand) population in Tripura.

    Something is going wrong...

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.
