Lukewarm response from Bishnupriya Manipuri NRIs and B’deshi origin on whereabouts exercise

Couple of weeks back, an email exercise was carried out to determine the number of Bishnupriya Manipuri Non-Resident Indians and of Bangladeshi origin living in foreign shores. To utter dismay, the whole exercise failed to gain momentum and ended up with mere one digit data. Less than 10 Bishnupriya Manipuri people filled in the form. 

Most notable, not a single Bishnupriya Manipuri people of Bangladeshi origin took up the exercise. And those who filled in the form were all from Assam, India living in the countries like UAE and USA. 

They are all married staying with their spouse and children, and had left India in 2004 onwards. 

Responding to this initiative, Bijit Sarma, staying in UAE said “It's a good idea to collect the data. Hope to see the article next month.” Ananta Sinha held that they are really very happy with this type of exercise. 

“This is a very good exercise which may help establish communication between Bishnupriya Manipuris staying in India, Bangladesh and abroad and bring then closer to each other” said Pranjal Sinha, who live in USA . 

However, those who haven’t received the FORM can fill in here.

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

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
