International Society of Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur Sevashram

By Rebati Mohan Sinha, Mumbai

I feel proud and it is a great privilege to me to be associated with the International Society of Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur Sevashram, an institution striving for the spiritual, social, and educational up-liftment of people at large and our community in particular. Sevashram’s philosophy is based on the universal religion of Naam-sankirtan.

We request all people to take part and have spiritually wholesome. The laying of foundation stone of Sevashram was performed on the occasion of Sadhu Thakur’s 137th birth anniversary, celebrated first time in all India basis at Range Hill, Pune in a grand scale. Dignitaries from all over the country attended the celebration. The Sevait of Radha Goginda Mandir, Nabadwip, Sri Mairang Singha Debabarmana had laid the Mandir foundation stone at the site donated by five distinguished Bishnupriya Manipuri ladies of Pune. This is the third year celebration under the aegis of International Institute of Sri Sri Sadhu Thakur Sevashram. The festival is like a baby conceived three years ago. We now see the baby growing in front of our eyes and the feeling of growing gives us immense pleasure. We hope that this festival will grow better and bigger with each passing year.

In the millennium year 2000, the first celebration of Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur’s birth anniversary outside of Assam and Tripura, was observed in Mumbai, then to Pune and followed by Kolkata, Bangalore, New Delhi, Ahmedabad, New Jersey, USA and Australia.

In the near future, it is expected that the celebration will be held in Gulf countries. Earlier the celebrations were limited to only few pockets of our Bishnupriya Manipuri-populated areas, and now it is more or less spreading to almost every village.

Now onwards our effort will be to help villagers observing this day at their respective villages, so that every Bishnupriya Manipuri should know the spiritual leader of our society. However, our effort should also be to acknowledge the world with His teachings.

Today is Leipakpa (Tuesday)

What next?

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
