Lack of vote-bank mars demand of Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers

News

The lives of 149 Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers are in stake and they need support and encouragement from the whole community, the Government of Assam is dilly-dallying the whole issue as the community doesn’t make a vote-bank, is what oganisations supporting the hunger strike starting from June 5, 2009, said when they were contacted.

The Government of Assam is completely neglecting the plight of Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers as the community itself doesn’t fall in the vote-bank politics, said Anil Rajkumar, the President of Bishnupriya Manipuri Students Association.

Despite all procedural measures being taken for the appointment of the Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers in the last 9 years, the fate of 149 Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers are in limbo, said Samir Sinha of Bishnupriya Manipuri Gana Sangram Parishad.

To meet their demands, the 149 Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers had earlier resorted to similar strikes, but nothing came out concrete from their attempts. “But this time it is different and will be successful,” said Samir Sinha.

  3. These organisatins fought the case against the Govt in Guwahati High Court and lost. Again appealed and lost.Now it is not understood,in what way DC of the district can help them,when the case is lost in the Highest court of the State.
    It is my suggestion,either let them appeal to Supreme Court against the HC ruling or approach the lady, Sarmila Sinha by name,who promised them for help.

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. 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.
