New faces at the Delhi-NCR Bishnupriya Manipuri Nagarik Samity

After intense deliberations and discussions among the representatives attending the meeting, held at Manglapuri, New Delhi on August 16, 2008, the Delhi-NCR Bishnupriya Manipuri Nagarik Samity was formed. The new Samity will now be headed by Dr. Nirmalya Sinha at the post of President, Mr. Shashikant Sinha as General Secretary, Mr. C.M Sinha as Vice President, Mr. Jishnu Sinha as Secretary, Mr. Nirmalendu Mukherjee as Joint Secretary, and in the post of Tresurer, Mr. Rajkumar Harilal Sinha.

The highly charged meeting saw 50-odd representatives from all across Delhi and NCR lobbying for the selection of their favourite candidates, and with occasional debate, at last finalising the names.

The meeting started with Dr. Nirmalya Sinha welcoming the gathering, followed by a request to all representatives to file their favourite candidates after the adjournment of the meeting for few minutes.

When the representatives met again, Mr. BN Sinha along with Mr. BK Sinha, echoed the aspirations of the Bishnupriya Manipuri people residing in Delhi and NCR. BN Sinha said whoever is selected to the important post of the Samity must meet the hopes and aspirations of the Bishnupriya Manipuri people residing in the capital of India. He must be knowledgeable, capable enough to become the face of the community at the citadel of power, the New Delhi; it is matter of prestige for the whole Bishnupriya Manipuri community, he said. All participants attending the meeting nodded in the support of him.

However, BN Sinha's speech was interrupted when one member raised objection on the use of the English language in the meeting. With this, decision was taken to carry out the meeting in Bengali or Hindi or in Bishnupriya Manipuri languages.

For the marathon race for the prestigious post of President, from the two names came up, Dr. Nirmalya Sinha and Mr. CM Sinha, majority of people supported Dr. Nirmalya Sinha to hold the post of Presidentship.

For the post of Vice President, from the three names: Mr Shashikant Sinha, Mr. Rajkumar Harilal Sinha and Mr. CM Sinha. Mr CM Sinha was given the post.

While for the post of General Secretay, participants unanimously supported Mr. Shashikant Sinha. The decision got marred when Mr. Nirmalendu Mukherjee suggested Mr. CM Sinha to be given the post of General Secretary.

In the post of Tresurer, Mr. Rajkumar Harilal Sinha's names appearing in the two lists, gave him clean chit to hold the post, against Mr. Janmajay Sinha who got nomination only in one list.

The new Samity has decided to meet again on next Sunday at CR Park.

The reasons: as far as I know, there were only two BM families came and stayed near to a Bengali populated area like Chittaranjan Park about sixty years back.Also the BM of Barak Valley nd Tripura learn to talk nd write from their childhood.The Delhities(BM) are from those places
    Just to say,in erstwhile Bombay, there was only one BM family settled in Gujrati populated area nd speak Gujrati.

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.
