  1. The photo collection did not seem to have a professional touch but nevertheless I am thankful to the dude as well as the virtual world for sharing with us a quality BM winning moment in the nation's capital.

    Would have loved to share the joy and be part of an important event. Too bad, didn't got to know, as the relevant responsible member never felt the need to share the event dates in popular BM journals or Blogs.

    Anyway, my heartiest congratulations goes to the troupe members. I wish them all the very best.

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.
