    1. NBMM says,Telecast of our BM programs would be started soon, as per assurance given to them by Doordarshan Director Mr.Sakya Sundar Dhar.How far is he equipped with central directives,only time would tell.

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.
