Lessons that Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers can teach!

We must celebrate our misery! 96 months of existence with no salaries is by no means a meek achievement. Thanks to an incredible display of efficiency by our administrators!

No please don’t call them a bunch of jokers. Not fair. You must understand the last eight years was a recce executed by our super efficient administrators, a preparation to survive the recession in 2009. This was meant to be case study for the welfare of global economy.

The Bishnupriya Manipuris teachers and in fact, all the teachers of the world regardless of caste, creed and sex, must thank this state administration for making them a part of this prestigious project called Misery. At last, some perks come from being soft targets!

Tell me, who would ever give such an opportunity to Bishnupriya Manipuris? Eight long years of extensive, in-depth practice of poverty, injustice and shit for a noble global cause.

Now don’t rage with anger. For God’s sake see the silver lining around this eight year old gloomy cloud. See what the administrators have given us. Experience to survive recession. Skills to survive poverty. Motivational strategies to live with zero finance for a decade. Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers are now equipped with exclusive management skills that can put an IIM or a Harvard graduate to shocking shame.
Can you freaking expect an IIM graduate to manage himself for eight long years with zero finance? No amount of sophisticated, state of the art campus training can teach him that. Now the credit for this goes to our state administrators whom you called a bunch of miserable jokers a few minutes ago. How cruel! Why just management graduates? The Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers can now conduct workshops for leading corporate houses, global financial experts, Prime Ministers with financial backgrounds, the Editor of the Wall Street Journal to give in-depth training and insights into how to lead misery free lives with no money, no salary for eight long years. And yes, no money would be charged for the workshops. After all, the state administrators have a reputation to live up to.
And the Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers better safeguard this reputation. For eight long years they have been trained to never ask for money. Never expect to get paid. To ban prosperity. To enjoy the sight as your children suffer the hunger. A fee charge might spoil that hard earned reputation of our beloved bunch of jokers. Apologies! State administrators.

The potential contribution of the Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers may not end with just the management graduates or the corporates. The Medical world too can milk the bleeding cows. The teachers can be subjected to state sponsored research by the world’s best scientists on unique digestive systems that can survive a decade of malnutrition. NASA can also step in and look into possibilities of sending the lucky 149 Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers up on space as an experiment to study if life in space is possible with scarce food or no food; just in case the earth faces a global food shortage in a few years as it is facing recession now. The Bishnupriya Manipuris teachers must anticipate and prepare the world to face any potential calamity fall upon it and persist for 96 long months. Perhaps even more.

It’s a privileged moral responsibility that this administration has thrust upon these Bishnupriya Manipuri teachers to teach the world a few hard lessons.

But yes, with no salaries.

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

By Ranita Sinha, Kolkata Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Thakur, the great saint of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Community was born on 26th October, 1871, in a remote village of Cachar district called Baropua in the state of Assam. 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
