Is Imaar Thar in Danger: Dwindling Vs Secure

Today is Ninthoapa (Monday)


To the question – Is Imaar Thar in Danger?

Sarmila Sinha says that the population speaking the language is dwindling. However with the renewed impetus to the preservation of the culture, language and identity by today’s generation, it is safe, avers Pranjal Sinha. For Suroshree Sinha, “Language cannot be extinct” and it is complete “No” for Gautam Sinha.

Is Imaar Thar in Danger? – Yes

I think the population of Bishnupriya Manipuri is dwindling, and there is no political platform to expand or secure our base.


Pranjal Sinha resides in Pittsburg, USA, and hails from Guwahati, Assam

Is Imaar Thar in Danger? – Yes

Though I have voted for "yes", but I have a strong feeling that our people are becoming more & more conscious about their identity/culture/language. The participation of many young people shows that.

Anyway, I am optimistic that we will gain our old glory.


Suroshee Sinha’s family stays in Delhi and are from Tripura

Is Imaar Thar in Danger? – No

Language cannot be extinct. Yes there are people who don’t know how to speak "Imaar thar", but I guess it is not their fault. We don’t speak Imaar thar at home even to interact among ourselves. We are more comfortable with the local dialect whatever it might be.
There should be a conscious effort to speak in our Imaar thar at least at home.

I know how to speak in my Imaar thaar even if I live in Delhi, yes I am more comfortable in Hindi or English but mom starts of in Imaar thar and I follow it, can’t that happen in every house hold.

Am I correct (I don’t know), but this seems to be a logical and feasible answer.


Gautam Sinha presently in Goa will be soon in Delhi to pursue MTech in IIT Delhi. He is originally from Tripura.


Is Imaar Thar in Danger? – No

I think that our youngsters understand the Bishnupriya Manipuri language. If we make more and more awareness amongst youngster then this will not happen.


You can have your say on this issue – Is Imaar Thar in Danger?

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.
