Definitely, we will take a big leap

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

With the launching of the site bishnupriyamanipuri.org by my friends – BN Sinha, Jyotirmoy Sinha and Henryy Sinha – if there is one person who is eternally happy, it is me. The news of the launch swept me like a fatherly figure. Bit perturbed on the questions – how do they will carry out the job, will they be responsible to the undertaken job, are they equipped enough to manage a site which seems simple from front but it is not - were barrage of emotions consuming me? After all they started their journey of writing from this blog. You know this. 

But, at the bottom of the turbulence was lying extreme contentment that the very idea of establishing this blog has started showing. Now, people are discussing, talking, collaborating, and mining information about the community. That’s what the blog wished for - transforming the Bishnupriya Manipuri tag to become a living brand. Also, to trigger in the so-called urban Bishnupriya Manipuri people, who were just swinging between job and home - to brainstorm about people, and only for people? And they did it, what the blog has always aspired for. 

The word “writers”, “authors” which were nowhere in our common parlance, thanks to the site, will become household words. They have been put in great demand. The writers have to think in-and-out what to write next. They will be delving on how to cater their idea, and all those exercise that writers usually go through. This is what - empowering the greenhorn writer – to think and polish his/ her ideas and skills. I will say, a portfolio of writers will be created. 

Now, comes the owner Jyotirmoy Sinha, he has to manage the site. Managing a site is very complex. It has got endless angles. He has to see, envision the site for the present, and for the future. I hope he will fulfill his dream to conquer a space in the cyber world for the Bishnupriya Manipuri people. 

Many readers would be thinking – why this blog is not adding ‘org’, ‘in’, ‘com’ and other endings to it? Let me explain, I have lot of time given thought on dropping ‘blogspot’, but I found this will not add anything substantial and concrete to this. If required, within an hour’s time, this can be added. But, for a moment think, tomorrow when you come here “Will you see any change in the DNA of this blog?” No, you will not find any change. 

“Definitely, the blog will take a big leap” I say. For the time being, still the blog has not flexed many of "technical" things; it is almost 50 % muscles are lying idle and are not being given stimuli-tweaking, it will remain as it is. It is your own bishnupriyamanipuri.blogspot.com, your extended family member. Add to it, other infrastructures are not placed in order. When I say “infrastructure”, I do mean a lot.

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

Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur

By Ranita Sinha, Kolkata Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Thakur, the great saint of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Community was born on 26th October, 1871, in a remote village of Cachar district called Baropua in the state of Assam. 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. But within one year he made up his mind to visit all the holy places and as such he took permis
