Bishnupriya Manipuri music finds new buyers

Music Unlimited!
By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

It’s been more than 6-months, the Bishnupriya Manipuri song “Aar More Nigsing Nais” was released online. At the time of writing this article the song was downloaded over 225 times by music enthusiast.

What’s more one can expect?

The songs not only crossed geographical areas, but it gave an impetus to non-existent Bishnupriya Manipuri music industry. The music album which was about to vanish, got a new lease of life, and it brought a tectonic shift to our approach, the way we consume music. People started crooning the songs, identified the singers, the producers; and their interest on the Bishnupriya Manipuri music was again resumed.

Swapan Sinha recently hunted the CD of the songs while visiting his village in Cachar, Assam. It’s not that he has not heard the songs before it was released online. But the release of the songs in the new ‘online’ medium sprouted in him the desire to possess it physically.

Not enough! The release of the album "O MEGHALA" audio CD in the prompted Dubai-baased Bijit Sarma to buy a copy of the music in Guwahati!

“Last month, I bought one copy of "O MEGHALA" audio CD from our nearest Bishnupriya Manipuri-owned grocery shop in Guwahati and found the lyrics (by Amar Singh) of one particular song very touchy. The song was sung very well by the singer,” reads the mail sent here.

In the mail he wished to share the song "Huna Rupa Beleya …O Ima Bishnupriya" by Rishikesh. “I just wanted to share the song "Huna Rupa Beleya____O Ima Bishnupriya" by Rishikesh. So please do upload the same if possible. I hope it will not harm the commercial interest of the Producer of the CD (Mr Gautam Sinha),” he said.

The release of the songs will definitely hit a big chunk of The Bishnupriya Manipuri subscribers and readers. And will definitely push a section of the section of the people to buy it. Even I have bought it and found it is worth of the investment (Rupees Fifty only).

The Bishnupriya Manipuri music has come to such a stage at present that any album released by Meena Sinha would definitely be sold like hot cakes and will elicit a lot of attention.

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

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.
