    2. Dear friend Santosh

      First of all i must say that u have been writing quite sensibly and your write ups always carried logics and informations yet it reflects your concern for the community. But with the kind of comment u have passed for the celebration we had observed in Delhi,may be you have forwarded a message of others... but to write those words in public is quite an irresponsible act...
      There may be number of unsatisfactory issues people may face when it comes to a mass contributed celebration...like Sadhu Baba Utsav or Paali... but for that all beyapa beibuni were mostly welcomed to come up with their suggestions and grievances to the organising committee...
      Its for your kindest information that ... the place Delhi is unlike a village of Cachar or Tripura... Here every individual wakes up with numbers of issues relates to his survival in the city....
      Notwithstanding... finding out time , money , energy to devote to the community is quite difficult and he who does all this is definitely a person needed applause..

      If you say about the last paali.. the day witnessed maximum temperature and humidity in Delhi.. Despite, the people were highly enthusiastic and enjoyed the most. Well there may be minor issues which you have mentioned...about the prasad etc.. but it dint dent on the enthusiasm...

      Now, as far as the chanda part... it wud be the most hilarious matter to me if any one alleges any mishandling of public money... because every time the over all chanda collected were much below the actual expenditure... and finally those were met by contribution from few members of the organising committee... this happens every time...every time the chanda amount being fixed is deliberately low so that every one can come and join the celebration irrespective of their income...

      Pointing finger is the easiest thing in the world.... yet we request all those who felt a bit of dissatisfaction to come forward with their suggestion to the committee not to any individual if possible with a little time of helping hand...

      We all can definitely make things better and joyous....

      Lastly... we , who are part of the celebration in Delhi .. must know that what we do here becomes a lesson for the other cities to follow...

      So we must feel and understand our responsibility before we write, comment, upload any such things which sounds unpleasant...

      Remark intended...

    3. Respected B N Da,

      It is my request not to take the earlier comment in a negative way. Intention was not to discourage the organizing committee. I personally applauded the efforts of the committee to the mass in my article "BISHNUPRIYA MANIPURI BANGALORE, ALIVE or DEAD?" in www.bishnupriyamanipuri.org. If i have the right to applaud the great work done by the committee, i have the right too to criticize where the committee is lacking.

      Well, respected big brother, I do not agree with you that by making comment I have shown irresponsibility. It is my freedom of expression and expressed it in the right place in a proper way. Well, i did not call the committee in bad names or put a question mark on the ability of it. Rather, i just communicated the unsatisfaction of some people. Also if big bro can see the last part of the comment, you can understand it is requested to the committee to improve their management and service.So, it is my request to take the last comment as positive criticism.

      Moreover, I am surprised that you are upset for making such comment on the committee publicly. If people appreciate committee's good work publicly, committee feels good.On the other hand, if they point out the lacking of the committee, they are wanted to be crucified. I do not think that it is a responsible act of the committee unable to digest such fact and comment publicly and making excuses of its lacking.Again it is my request to the committee to broaden their chest to face such many positive criticism in coming days. But kindly do not forget that the good work of the committee will be appreciated first of all.

      I wish the organizing committee without suffering from self-satisfaction only,will focus on where they are lacking so that they can improve their management and performance in coming celebrations.

      Finally, all our brothers and sisters should not be dissatisfied with the committee's performance.

      I hope that the committee will make me speechless to make comment after the coming Sadhu Baba's program by their satisfactory performance.

    5. Bshnupriya Manipuri Kalyan Sangathan, Mumbai-pune,is going ahead with 10th year celebration of
      Sadhu Thakur's birth anniversary at
      Mumbai and Pune in the month of october and it may be mentioned here that every year we are facing such criticism.For example: 1) food was so good; but the salt was little less 2)plenty of good apples were available in the market but apples given were very small and tasteless.
      If we are discussing such negligible issues in this media,
      people will definitely laugh.There are plenty of good issues
      concerning festivals,such as:low % of attendence, why? Is it due to venue or timing or lack of communication? Anyway we should bear in mind, our criticism should be very much costructive.

    6. One of our senior person has made a right statement that our criticism should be constructive. I do 100% agree with him. Probably according to him,
      1) communicating a group of people's dissatisfaction about the prasadam to the committee and requesting it to improve the quality of prasadam is not a constructive criticism according to him. May be according to the respected senior person, topic of the inferior quality of prasadam is not a topic of discussion in the media or a negligible topic. Reading his comment, when i asked the dissatisfied people, they said that it was one of the most important issue which should have been discussed especially in media so that it would make more impact on the performance of the committee. Now to decide whether to listen the senior person or the group of dissatisfied people, i completely leave that on the mass.


      2) Secondly, since the respected senior person has raised the issue of low % of attendance citing some factors. I thank him for raising the point as we know the importance of gathering of people in such celebrations. So, I guess our this senior person will be agree with me by not dissatisfying this group of people or any group of people due to any reason whatever minor may be the reason. I hope the committee does not want to lessen the % of gathering due to any reason even though the reason may be minor. I am confident on the people involved in the team of the committee that they will do their job with flying colours and satisfy everybody as they know the importance of each and every Giri-Githani who will be attending.

      B.N: E comment eta kuno giri-githaniye personally naa nenaarka heicha janaaori. Habbi jetha jethire e- gaurapo sou egor digol homa haan thaail. Kuno bhul oile khulago buliya maaf kore dibaang, kintu HAAI kotha utaao khullago buliya neglect naakorbang.

    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.
