By Rebati Mohan Sinha, Mumbai

1. For oath taking ceremony, the designated members from Assam, Tripura, Delhi and Mumbai started arriving Radha Kund,Mathura, from 24th October onwards. The last party to arrive was from Delhi on 26th Oct 2008 at 1100 hrs.

2. The oath taking ceremony commenced at 1130 hrs under the supervision of Shri Krishna Charan Sinha, the General Secretary of Sri Sri Radha Madhavjiu Seva Puja Parichalan Samiti from Patherkandi, Karimganj, Assam.

3. The following members took the oath at around 1140 hrs:

Sri Rebati Mohan Sinha from Mumbai, as member
Sri Bishwajit Sinha and Sri Mohan Singha Chaudhuri from Delhi, as members and
Sri Krishnakanta Babaji, the Sevait of Radhakunda,as Secretary,.

4. Shri Banamali Sinha, IAS from Tripura could not take oath on that day.

5. The earlier committee could not do any formal hand over, as no proper book keeping was maintained so far. The Sevait even told the meeting that he never took over any thing from any body and also, there were no guidelines which he could follow. Accordingly, a draft proposal on duties of the Mandir Administrative Committee, the Sevait and the Asstt.Sevait was taken up for discussion and passed unanimously.

6. It also emerged that there was no proper system of accounting being followed at Radha Madhavjiu mandir. Therefore the committee advised that the accounting system of Radha Gobinda Mandir, Nabadwip, be followed. All relevant papers in respect of accounts were placed for discussion in the above meeting based on which they were handed over to Sevait for compliance. Shri Krishna Charan Sinha, Secretary, Central Parichalan committee, was requested to follow up the matter within next 5 days prior to his leaving for Guwahati via Delhi.

7. The committee requested the Sevait to follow the above draft proposal and accordingly start preparing the inventories. The Asstt. Sevait who was away to attend some domestic exigency was also urged to help Sevait in completing the job, before the central working committee meeting to be held in the month of December2008.

8. While discussing on miscellaneous items, the following incidents were reported :

Shri Krishnakanta Babaji reported that a party of pilgrimage once came to Yatri Nivas at around midnight and demanded food. When they were refused, the party started humiliating, saying that the Sevait and his helping hands were employees of the Mandir, and they were bound to provide food. The other incident was of a group of 62 non Bishnupriya Manipuri tirtha-yatri led by a B.M. They had food without paying money, taking the advantage of prevailing custom of having one meal free of cost.

9. The Mandir administrative committee President, Shri Kajal Kanti Sinha sited two irregularities as examples; but not as a complaint, which took place in early nineties.
Shri Sinha had got built a room spending Rs.32000/-for yatris ,and the name given was Tripura Nivas; but the Mandir Committee did not recognize him. On the contrary, it was documented on one of his brother in law`s name. As second example, a A plot of land at the east end of the Mandir was bought by the money provided by him; but no where it was mentioned.
10. Shri Rebati Mohan Sinha enquired about the document relating to Mandir land. The Yatri Nivas needs to be registered for which these documents are essential. Shri R.M.Sinha told the committee that the documentation was done in the year 1973-74, during the time of sevait late Radha Raman Sinha of Singari. However the Sevait expressed his ignorance of any documents available at the mandir premises. Shri Krishna Charan Sinha, the General Secretary of the Central Committee also did not know about the said documents.

11. The committee thanked Sevait for his exemplary help rendered to a lady tirtha yatri from Bangladesh. She was seriously ill and fighting for her life. The Sevait helped by way of shifting her to Agra hospital for emergency operation. The patient survived. At the same time Shri Krishna Charan Sinha also deserved accolade for his timely help with money.
12. The meeting ended in a great note. The day`s Bhog Prasad by then was ready for distribution.

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
