Mohanpur becomes first village to connect to this blog

It would have been called a partial failed attempt had this blog been only limited to netizens, who can access this through internet. But it came as a sweet jolt when Google came out with the SMS service in India. And this blog was fast enough to catch with the latest technology and use it for the maximize coverage of its readership.

The blog is far ahead in its technology usage and service that it provides to its devoted readers, be it is in front of email subscription, above 100’s of readers are getting updates from this blog.

Feed – is one section, though its usage is minuscule, gives the readers to read all the contents/ articles in one platform. They don’t have to click and click to read all their favourite articles. Readers not acquainted to Feeds, can go to Google Reader and type “Bishnupriya Manipuri” and start reading in one place, in one window their own blog.

However, all the articles here in this blog are cached and crawled by Google bots. This means not an article is missed by Google web crawler. Hence, readers can just activate – Bishnupriya Manipuri – in Google Alert service, and leave it to Google to do its work. All the articles will come to their email id.

Coming to the free SMS service ran by this blog, a huge digital gap has been filled in. The headline goes to those people, where internet is still seen as something alien, unheard of and computer is not a part of their life cycle.

My cousins and uncles in Mohanpur, Cachar, Assam, if I am not wrong becomes the first people living in village to connect to this blog. When I called them asking are they getting updates about the recent happenings in the Bishnupriya Manipuri community, I didn’t say blog or anything technical. Their response, “nyam hoba lagil telling people that Utsav was held at Dilli and Bombay…they ask us how do they come to know this’’.  It was a news for them. This sentence from them was enough to instill in me the confidence the tool is successful and can catapult the existing communication gap that exist in the community.

To avail this facility, what I did? I created a fake Gmail id and followed the steps that are required. Then I called them up asking the code delivered on their mobile and completed the whole steps. The whole exercise  hardly took 5 minutes! That was worth to connect the whole village to this blog.

Here is the list of email ids that are not receiving email alerts from this blog. They have not completed the whole process of subscription. If you are one amongst this, please do subscribe again.

[Many email ids I have deleted].

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.
