Sri Sri Bhubeneshwar Sadhu Thakur Birth Celebration at Mumbai

By Rebati Mohan Sinha, Mumbai
Bishnupriya Manipuri Kalyan Sangthan celebrates birth anniversary of Sri Sri Bhubaneswar Sadhu Thakur on ‘Bhatri Dwitia day’ in Pune and on following Sunday, in Mumbai on 2nd November2008. The celebration took place at the community hall of New Airport Colony, Vile-Parle, Mumbai. 
When Pune celebrates, Mumbai joins them and vice versa. We can not perform all the rituals, because of Bishnupriya Manipuri families arriving from very far away places, say 50,60…kms. Traveling with families in Mumbai local trains is next to impossible, so their late coming is justified up to certain extent. It was a well appreciated gathering. 
Our chief guest, the prominent Nrityangana, Padmashri Srimati Darshana Jhaveri, the disciple of guru late Bipin Singha, graced the occasion, at the start of our cultural program at 4.30 pm. There were distinguished guests present, among them were Dr. Sukumar Nath Choudhury, an aeronautical engineer, Dr.Rajkumar Prishit, President,Hindi Prachar Sabha,Maharashtra
Our language singer Sri Ravi Sinha from Guwahati, with his troupe entertained the audience. When he sang a few melodious songs, written and sung by his maternal uncle, late (oza) Kalasena Rajkumar, from Patharkandi,Karimganj, the audience got spell bound. 
Sri Gautam Sinha also rendered few bhajan geet, the last one was in Hindi. Sri Pradip Sinha accompanied them with a tobla. Srimati Indrani Sarma, a Mumbai-based talented singer also mesmerised the audience.
The dakula jura from Pune have shown few acrobatic cholon  in front of our chief guest, who herself is a very good mridong badak. The senda aarti was jointly rendered by Indrani Sarma and Ravi Sinha. The pune party, headed by Sri Kulajit Rajkumar, took part in aarti. The entire program was partially broadcasted to Pune, Delhi and Kolkata through mobiles. Loioitega vijoy koria aamar udinkaar aayojonhanor somapti ghosona korlang Sadhu thakuror joya dhwanilo.

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.
