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

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.
