The Holy Shridham Radhakhunda

1 comments
The Bishnupriya Manipuris are lucky enough to have a community temple, named Radha Madhavjiu, in Radhakunda. It was founded in 1843 by a saint Pundarikaksha Sharma from Khalapar, Patherkandi, Karimganj, Assam by the power of divine grace.

By Rebati Mohan Sinha, Mumbai



The immortal love of Radharani and Sri Krishna is the highest form of love, which is worshipped by all Krishna devotees (bhakts) across the globe. The divine love teaches selfless and unconditional pure form of love to the devotees who sing devotional hymns in its praise. This very love of Radharani and Sri Krishna is still alive in Shridham Radhakunda, one of the holy places of highly spiritual significance in India as it is said to have been blessed by Sri Krishna and her consort Radharani.

There is an interesting story related to the existence of Shridham Radhakund. The story unravels the deep love of Sri Krishna for Radharani. It says that on one occasion, Sri Krishna killed a bull demon. When Radharani came to know that Krishna killed a bull, she refused to associate herself with him unless He purified himself from the sin of bull killing by bathing in all holy rivers of the universe. Sri Krishna pleaded her that since the bull was a demon in disguise, hence no purification is necessary, but Radharani insisted. At this, to convince her, Sri Krishna asked her, would she be pleased if He called all the sacred rivers of the Teeno lok there? Radha nodded in agreement. Then Sri Krishna struck his right heel on the ground and created a large crater (vajrakund). He invoked all the sacred rivers that appeared in personified forms soon and offered their obeisance to Him. They identified themselves as Sri Godavari, Krishna, Cauvery, Sindhu, Yamuna and Brahmaputra. They offered prayer to become waters to fill up the Shyamkunda and disappeared into it.

As soon as the Shyamkunda filled with the waters of sacred rivers, Sri Krishna took bath and relieved himself from the sin of killing the bull, to persuade Radha. But then He started teasing her and her sakhies (friends), saying He would be praised by all the people of Nandgao but what will happen to them? Radharani got annoyed at this. She broke a bangle and started digging a pond with it on the footprints of the demon in the west of Shyamkunda, along with her sakhies. They made a big pond but there was no water. Sri Krishna asked her to take water from the Shyamkunda; but she refused to take, saying that the water was polluted as He took bath in it. She then about to bring water from Manasi Ganga located near the foot hill of Govardhan. Witnessing the quarrel between Radharani and Sri Krishna, all the sacred rivers personified themselves once again and appeared in Shyamkunda and requested Sri Krishna to allow them to fill the Radhakunda. Krishna told them to ask Radharani, whether she would allow them to do so. Ultimately, she had to agree and ordered her chief sakhi, Lalita to do the needful. All the sacred rivers broke opened the walls of Shyamkunda and rushed to Radhakunda. Once it was filled, Sri Krishna jumped into it and started swimming till it was midnight. He assured that whoever takes bath in Radha kunda, would be given the seeds of love that He had for Radha. Seeing this, Radharani along with her sakhies, got into the Shyamakhunda and started playing with the water and telling the same thing ‘whoever takes bath in Shyamkunda also, would have the seeds of love kept for Shyam’.

Thousands of devotees, desiring of love for Radha Krishna, visit this holy place and experience it by bathing first in Radhakunda then in Shyamkunda and again in Radhakunda. This is the only place of pilgrimage where auspicious bath is taken at midnight.

The Bishnupriya Manipuris are lucky enough to have a community temple, named Radha Madhavjiu, in Radhakunda. It was founded in 1843 by a saint Pundarikaksha Sharma from Khalapar, Patherkandi, Karimganj, Assam by the power of divine grace. But he could not run it alone so long. He went back to his native land and approached villagers to support him running the Seva Puja of the temple at Radhakunda. Still today, every household of Bishnupriya Manipuri community gives subscription annually to run the administration of Radha Madhavjiu, situated near the east bank of Shyamkunda, facing east, unlike the other temples that face the path of parikrama .The entrance to the premises of the temple is from back yard. Presently a Yatri Nivas (guest house) is being built, adjacent to the temple.

In the near future the pilgrims can stay comfortably.

How to reach Radhakunda

Radhakunda is 150 km from Delhi, 22 km from Vrindavan, 26 km from Mathura Rly station and 58 km from Agra Fort. Buses are available from Delhi, Mathura and Agra to Govardhan. But there is no bus service to Radhakunda. To reach there only auto rickshaws and Tanga are available.

Srilo Prabhupada,the founder of ISKCON, once said about Srimati Radharani ‘… All glories to Radharani. She is so dear to Krishna. Every one is trying to love Krishna, and Krishna is trying to love Radha.’ Just imagine how great Radharani is. Krishna’s prem is so valuable; but Krishna is after Radharani. She is so great; we have to offer her our respect. All devotees in Vrindavan worship Radharani. Pure devotees pray to Radharani. Whenever any devotee wishes another, he says…JOI RADHE and the other devotee reciprocates in the same voice, JOI RADHE. I hope, people will adore much more than the earlier after reading the article.

Rudra Singh Higher Secondary School at Kailasahar, Tripura was established in 1872

0 comments
Prashanta Kilikdar, Headmaster, Rudra Singh Higher Secondary School at Kailasahar, Tripura is a person who didn’t switch off his mobile when a Delhi mobile number was flashing intermittently for many days. He was patient, enthusiastic receiving each and every call. Test of his patience came very visible when he answered all the minute queries put forward by the interviewee. 

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

The Rudra Singh Higher Secondary School at Kailasahar, Tripura is not a school of this day. The history of the school dates back to 19th century, when India was still in the clutches of British Raj and the present State was nowhere in the political map. One can imagine the state of education in those days. 

But it didn’t deter people to embrace the importance of education that it brings to the society. The grand foresight that education is necessary for the overall development of an individual and it is instrumental to the upliftment of any society, was well understood by Rudra Singha. A Bishnupriya Manipuri, Rudra Singha, donated 2.37 acre of land in 1872 to the establishment of a school which is now named after him and it stands as a beacon guiding generations after generations since its inception. 

The double-storey school recently organised the women Northeast Football Tournament and Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) Platinum Jubilee. Those who attended the Platinum Jubilee celebration were awestruck seeing the level of maintenance that is being followed by the school. The Rudra Singh Higher Secondary School bestows a playground and a beautiful garden.

Facility of bathroom is one aspect where Indian schools lag behind, but the school again scores the point here. It has a clean, well maintained bathroom for boys and girls. The pathetic state of bathroom facility in schools in India is well known. Reports do appear in media where students read girls abstain from school only due to lack of this facility. 

Location of the school, to be precise the area in which a school comes, is one determining factor on which a status of any school is given preference and given value. And it goes to the neighbourhood-population where the school is situated. “The school is situated in an area where the Bishnupriya Manipuri community accounts for 75-80 per cent of the total populace” said Kilikdar. 

Students from Guldharpur, Bhagabannagar, Gaunagar, Icchabpur, and Deorachhara gram panchayats take admission in the school, said Samar Sinha, who teaches geography in the school.

Being in the Bishnupriya Manipuri predominant area is very visible in its student enrollment. Over 80 per cent of the students studying in the school are Bishnupriya Manipuri, said Kilikdar. The school has morning and noon shifts. 

The Rudra Singh Higher Secondary School has classes from Class I to Class XII. The first batch of Class XII (Arts stream) would be passing this academic year. Enrollment of girls in the school is something that the education fraternity of the country should take note of it. 

In Class XI, the number of boys and girls is 15 each. The ratio of boys and the girls which runs equal from Class VI to Class XII is a remarkable achievement of the school. And the credit must go to the parents of the nearby areas who understand the importance of girl’s education as they are with their boys’ education. According to Ministry of Human Resource Development report (as on 30.9.2004), the dropout rates in Class I-X is 60.41 percent in boys, and 63. 88 per cent in girls. 



However, taking into account the percentage of students passing the Class X examination from the school, if it has not touched the magic 100 per cent result, it has not been poorer either. In 2006, 72 % of the 42 students who appeared in the exam were able to get through the exam. Four students secured First Division. 

In 2007, the Class X result went to a new height. Out of 45 students who sat in the exam, 96 % of students were declared pass. In 2008, the passing result came down to 82.35 per cent. 34 students appeared in the matriculation exam. 

Like any other government school of the country, the Rudra Singh Higher Secondary School at Kailasahar, Tripura is not unscathed with problems plaguing it. In the morning shift (Class I - V) only 5 teachers are teaching the students, whereas in the noon shift (Class VI - XII) it is 17, Kilikdar said. The dismal Pupil-Teacher ratio is 33 in Pre-degree junior colleges/ Hr. Sec. Schools, as on 30.9.2004 Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, report said. 



Prashanta Kilikdar confirmation that the school is facing scarcity of teachers in all the classes, calls for immediate attention and call for action from the stakeholders of State’s education. Else the school which has been the precursor of change for the people living in the area and for the State will loose its sheen to the English-medium schools that have popped up in the past couple years. 

It is remorseful for all of us that the walls of the century-old school have started crumbling and cracks have started appearing in it. Going by the records of students who have come out with flying colours in the matric exam securing First Division, it is minimal. In the academic year 2007 and 2008, only one student secured First Division and in 2006 it was mere 4.

Watch the photos of Mahasabha meet in Tripura

0 comments
The Platinum Jubilee of Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) held at Kailasahar, North Tripura on February 13, 14 and 15, was organised at a “grand” scale. Participation of the people in the conference was “euphoric”. 

Can you visualize the words “grand” and “euphoric” used above with the 43rd conference of Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha? Perhaps, not! 

Since those who were present there can only understand and appreciate the words “grand” and “euphoric”. Rest, who were not at the place, like most of us, can’t have an affinity to the event or to these words. For them the words are hollow and insipid. Truth is that, it is not. 

So, coming to the rescue of those who haven’t been at this event, a visual representation can definitely point out to the nature it was carried out. 

The blog comes up with a string of photos depicting the whole event. 

The first slide is a collage of all the photos captured in “2009” shape highlighting that the event had taken place in the year 2009. The second photo and many, one could see, the football of people assembled at the venue. These photos bring forth the fact that the event was indeed organised in a grand manner and the audience went berserk and euphoric.

All’s well that ends well

0 comments
By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi



For millions of online publishers who are using the services of the web-based feed distributor FeedBurner, for them the February month had been tough and full of anxiety. They had to transfer their website’s / blog’s feed from FeedBurner to Google.

Importance of FeedBurner could be gauged from the fact that the blog is using the services of FeedBurner to distribute content feeds to its subscribers. The email alert they are receiving in their inbox it is through it. The management of the subscribers is being done using FeedBurner.

With so much in stake, remaining away from Feedburner that is for a whole month was like living with out oxygen. Not only one go blank with the subscriber list but at the same time statistics that the blog generates.

Sleepless night had been spent by millions of FeedBurner’s users; they endured hard at this crisis time! The change of platform brings with it litany of other changes. One had to master the transition and at the same time get acquainted with the new Google environment.

The transition for the users took place since Google acquired it in June 1, 2007 believing that the “feed-based content and advertising is a developing space” where Feedburner can add value for users, advertisers and publishers.

Though the last date of the transition was February 28, 2009, still “Google Adsense’ users can do it. If you don’t have a Google Adsense user account, create one. After the transition is made, DON’T FORGET to log in the “Google Feedburner” with “Google adsense username”.

Presently when millions of web site or blogs are running on cobwebs of online services, the costs that one has to be pay is by spending sleepless nights that we all have spent when any such changes do take place in the internet landscape. Now when the transition has been done successfully - feeds have been resumed and statistics have been fetched – one could say “All’s well that ends well”.

If you are facing any such problem, do comment in this post.

“Mumbai chalo” missing in Bishnupriya Manipuri youths

3 comments
By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

People always compare between MUMBAI and DELHI. And they love to do it. Their comparison ranges from the history, to the present economic and infrastructure advancement and of course to the culture of the people that both the cities carry.

If Delhi gains the point being the capital of India, Mumbai steals this being the financial capital of India, and the entertainment capital of Indian sub-continent. We can go on and on discussing, analyzing that both the cities have to offer.

However, to the question what it is the status in terms of strength of Bishnupriya Manipuri living in Mumbai and in its suburban areas. Here it is

  • Bishnupriya Manipuris people in Mumbai and its adjoining areas doesn’t even touch the figure 100
  • The city has failed to hold the dream of Bishnupriya Manipuri youngsters



The above figure shows:

the names of places in Mumbai Bishnupriya Manipuri are living and their strength



The above figure shows:

The suburban areas in which Bishnupriya Manipuri are living and their strength




The above figure shows:

Bishnupriya Manipuri youngsters are living and their strength

With the figures above one can draw the conclusion that the city Mumbai is still far away from the Bishnupriya Manipuri youths.

Bishnupriya Manipuri Nagarik Samity meeting fixes Rs 75 per month per family as subscription fee

0 comments
Bishnupriya Manipuri Nagarik Samity, Delhi and NCR, in a meeting held on March 8, at Manglapuri, New Delhi, has taken an unanimous decision to fix the subscription fee for its members at Rs 225 per quarter per family. 

Members of the Samity also have the options to pay the fee at monthly (Rs 75), quarterly or half-yearly pattern, absolutely to their ease and comfort. 

It is to be noted that the subscription fee that a member has to pay is different from the membership fee. Membership fee is one-time payment of Rs 100, whereas subscription fee is a monthly contribution of Rs 75 per month per family to the society. 

Intense debate took place on the fixing up of the subscription fee among the participants. Many attendees were of the opinion to fix it at Rs 100 per month, per family, however with disparity in the income source among the people it was at last decided fixing the amount at Rs 75 per month per family. 

The issue of purchase of land for the mandir also came up in the meeting. In this regard, Samity has decided to form a committee. The committee will prepare a blueprint encapsulating the steps required for the fruition of the demand. The names Shashikant Sinha, Henrry Sinha, Jishnu Sinha will be in the committee. 

The Samity has also formed a committee to carry out donation drive for the purchase of land. Shashikant Sinha will be heading the team. 

The opening of bank account in the names of President, General Secretary and Secretary was also accepted in the meeting. 

Haridas Sinha, Kajal Sinha, Benu Sinha, Dr. Nirmalya Sinha, Prabin Sinha, Chandra Mohan Sinha, Jishnu Sinha, Janmajay Sinha, Shashikant Sinha and RK HL Sinha were present in the meeting. 

Others who attended the meeting were: Nirmalendu Mukherjee, Mrs Nandita Mukherjee, Surajit Sinha, Brahamananda Sinha, Jyotirmoy Sinha, Henryy Sinha. 

Note: the names are not up-to-date.

Watch the last video of Bishnupriya Manipuri New Delhi programme

0 comments
Watch video!

This is the last video in the Bishnupriya Manipuri New Delhi series. The shoot of the video was done on November 2, 2009 in New Delhi on the eve of birth celebration of Sri Sri Bhubeneshwar Sadhu Thakur. 

The series of videos are not mere moving representation of the day and the people. It tells a story of an event where the Bishnupriya Manipuri people living in Delhi and adjoining areas participated, making the event “special” for everyone. Irrespective of age, status, under one roof we all smilingly congregated, becoming egoless creatures. 

Watch the smiling faces in this video! You can see everybody wearing a SMILE, a silent smile. You can see people roaming here and there and talking relentlessly with no care of the monotonous life that we all had to undergo. 


Happy Holi!!

Reasons for our survival: disciplined food habits, aachar and wearing kathi

1 comments
The small geographically scattered Bishnupriya Manipuri community has been able to preserve its unique socio-cultural identity because of its innate qualities like disciplined food habits, purified behaviour (aachar) and by wearing kathi, said CK Sinha while addressing a congregation of Bishnupriya Manipuri people living in Delhi on March 8, 2009. 

CK Sinha from Kailasaher, Tripura visited Delhi after presenting a paper “Indian Civilization through the Millennia” in an international conference held at Shobit University, Hastinapur Research Institute on February 27-28, 2009. 

The community that would have gone vanished, “anthropologically extinct” he said, “it is due to three reasons” that the community still carries the ancestral heritage magnificently. They still possess the same solid idealistic belief from the core of their heart.

No calamities through centuries could damage their ideology nor could any attraction. Even today when all the races have been contaminated either by greed or by external fascination the population of Bishnupriya Manipuris has remained intact. 

Bishnupriya Manipuris live in the land of the Mahabharata, Hastinapur, in their mental map, the unique element seen in our people by way of inheritance does speak about their deep hereditary evidence of Hastinapur culture, he said. 

He spoke on the Holy book Gita and called for rendition of the Holy Scripture. CK Sinha was accompanied by Madhavlal Sinha and Swapan Sinha. 

The congregation took place at Lado Sarai, New Delhi.

Mahasabha launches http://mahasabha.org/

2 comments





In a welcome development for the Bishnupriya Manipuri community as a whole and in particular for the organization, the apex socio-cultural body of the Bishnupriya Manipuri community the Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) has resurrected its site mahasabha.org that remained in oblivion for years on the internet. 

“The same sites but starting from the 0-point again”, said the architect behind the site, Uttam Singha. 

Hacking has been cited as one reason for the site remaining out of the reach for most of the Bishnupriya Manipuri netizens.

“Old site hacked by hackers and injected some spams inside the server, so I did not want to keep old contents, and it might affect some users, so I have to shut down the site” said Uttam Singha. 

“I really do not know the answer, but this site will inspire our members to open some other new sites, and we won't be left-behind society from the internet/today’s world. Mahasabha is an international organaization, and should have a modern role” said Uttam. 

To have a vibrant site everybody’s participation is crucial and necessary, said Uttam.

“I request everybody to help me with information or suggestions, and I will upload those information to the Mahasabha web site” he said.

Outsourcing Employees: Wake Up!

0 comments
With all the focus in the outsourcing industry, there has been an intense scrutiny over the sustenance and credibility of it. You can hardly ignore the gripping that the same youth is getting into. A thought of where do I see myself 5 years down the line? Is the industry going to be in there for a long time, what will I do afterwards? All of that. In spite of his happy present, his thought process is limiting and cannot see beyond.

By Prabal Atreya


The buzzword Outsourcing today needs no introduction among the average Indian Youth. We see other synonyms in the form of Call Center, BPO, KPO, LPO etc. An average graduate looks out for one of these as soon he steps out of college. He brings along a fat salary in the first month itself, quite unheard of during the previous generations. Suddenly, he/she belongs the most suited son/daughter, boyfriend/girl friend, husband/wife. In comes a lifestyle, where black and white is just a color, gadgets became a must-have, shopping experiences were like never before. People now don’t watch a high-voltage match in homes, they will hit the nearest pub over a sip of beer, hang out there, celebrate every boundary and over it with great pomp and show. The youth today bears all the medical expenses with the coverage he gets for his dependents; gets his hatchback at the earliest, but ensures he goes to Tirupati with the same as well.

But behind all of these, with all the focus in the industry, there has been an intense scrutiny over the sustenance and credibility of it. With all the analyst reports (which one to believe in?) flowing in from all the major banners, you can hardly ignore the gripping that the same youth is getting into. A thought of where do I see myself 5 years down the line? Is the industry going to be in there for a long time, what will I do afterwards? All of that. Inspite of his happy present, his thought process is limiting and cannot see beyond.

Outsourcing is not just about call centers and BPOs, to begin with. There is a whole lot of quality work that comes along with it. Any part of the business could be outsourced. Whether you’ve converting sales or collecting sales, sourcing products, collecting market intelligence for your client, maintaining contracts, insurance coverage maintenance, providing legal management support, IT support and maintenance, provide analytical support to the business and so on. You name it and you’ll find everything right there. Let us also accept the fact that today, the toughest competition lies here with candidates coming from the all backgrounds play out here. But what we need to understand and graduate ourselves there is, outsourcing in not just another business decision to reduce cost but is very much a business requirement, a rather global requirement. The best minds across all industries believe in the mantra and are opting for the change called off shoring. We have to understand the nuances of the business, take pride in the work that we do, and without an element of doubt, keep developing the professional within us.

Cost is definitely an important driver for such a business decision but let us not consider ourselves as low wage workers for the western world. Let us understand that it could not have sustained only because of the cost factor. Along with it, what keeps us ahead in the league is the quality of output the Indian Outsourcing industry provides. India is a proud owner of the highest number of graduates and post-graduates in the world. We definitely have a better EQ in terms of providing business solutions. However, it is disturbing to note that some C-Grade establishments help in reducing the number by hiring undergraduates just to have some high energy resources. But in the process, the so-called employers forget or do not care about the long-term career of the candidate. There are a lot of innovative ideas that came out over a period of time in the human resource management with the developing industry, to tackle this. Not everyone though, but some do have a ‘learn while you earn’ concepts, which is good. But not everyone handles books and big bucks at the early twenties well, do we?? The same C-Grade employers forget that they are actually encouraging a whole bunch of unskilled resources which could only be identified at a level later.

Having said all of it, a professional’s worry is not void. There are definitely concerns over the jobs. We are already loosing our cost factor edge to countries to Philippines, Romania etc., it even reached places like Guatemala. Our command over the international language is slowly loosing the shine, as smaller developing countries are actually looking at India and are slowly but silently creating their workforce. China has a very skilled labor but lacked on the language front; but they understand their problem, and have now launched a crusade to get their skilled labor more international and crossing their language barrier, their government policies says it all.

Its now time to play the game on our strength. Realise our strength, that we have the resources to provide the quality that is unmatched. We talk about adding value to the business but do we really practice that. But we have inculcate it, think in those lines every time we provide solution to our business partners. People sitting across the table would be saying that he has a better cost destination then why you? There would be questions asked for they are paying for it. But we have to qualify that with the offering that we have.

What the individual professional could do here? Literally everything. For the starters, don’t you start off without completing your education. Understand that you could face problems later in your career when you take up expanded assignments. I mean those who have circumstances that lead you to, it’s fine but otherwise, if I have to suggest someone I would tell him to finish education first.

Develop and enhance your skill sets time over time…see what your developmental needs are and fulfill that at the earliest. See what the requirements of the times are. Make sure you spend quality time at your level to have the domain expertise. Today, employers look for people who have a wealth of knowledge in their respective domains. See your strength, what you are good at and proceed!! Job hoppers…understand that you spend quality time before you actually think of moving out for greener pastures. Because, now you’d be questioned if you can really add in some value to the organization. The hiring department has no never been this choosy. They will definitely question you loyalty and credibility at every interview that you attend and we’d start failing to crack a smart interview unless we have it in us.

In all, be an asset that an organization would love to have. It looks like yet another GYAN but that’s the way it is. Beware, our actions and sincerity towards the job drives the industry. It’s high time we as Indians get the right ethics in place. If the industry is looking for other shores than our’s, then it is because of our actions that we will let the scenario deteriorate. But on an overall, let’s play on our age old strength and get back the shine that we all Indian talent pool is known for. Even if an Obama or Gordon Brown has to make some steps for its people but Outsourcing shall still be a reality. The only difference is, we the people have to, individually, pull up our socks, and get outs together now. This complacency factor has to be cut out of us. Am sure we’ll have a better life with better jobs for a long time provided we get the fundamentals right. So go, get your job, lead a life that you always wanted. With every job created, understand that you are also benefiting the business and nation…so be responsible and go for it without any qualms. This the best period in Indian history, recession or no, we would rule. But the time has come for us to be more responsible than what we were ever before.

P.S- I did not put any statistics because you already have an OD of it from the everyday media. For once, let’s speak and understand like layman and get on to the business.
