Guwahatians recall Geetiswami



By our Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 29: The Greater Guwahati Gokulananda Geetiswami Udjapan Committee observed the 114th birth anniversary of Geetiswami Gokulananda at Shilpgram here today with a day-long function that was presided over by Prof (Retd) Kamini Mohan Sinha and attended, among others, by educationist and social worker Hemkanti Sinha as the chief guest, Prof (Retd) Shyam Charan Sinha as the guest of honour, MLA Kartik Sena Sinha as the distinguished guest and former president of Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) Manoranjan Sinha, who was honoured with the Geetiswami Purashkar at the function.

In his speech, noted speaker Colonel Bijay Sinha offered some “food for thought” for the Bishnupriya Manipuri intelligentsia by questioning the relevance of and reason behind match-making in accordance with the prediction and description given in horoscopes, a practice very much prevalent in the Bishnupriya Manipuri community much to the problems of a number of ill-fated girls and in their guardians. Colonel Sinha is of the firm view that self-dependence and other qualities of girls should prevail over those mentioned in their horoscopes in matters related to their nuptial affairs. Speaking on the contribution of Geetiswami, Colonel Sinha said Geetiswami should have been called an icon of the Bishnupriya Manipuri community.

This statement from Colonel Sinha had a feeble resistance from MLA Kartik Sena Sinha who said those mentioned in horoscopes do help ones to an extent though much depends on other aspects on ones life.

While receiving the Geetiswami Puraskar, Prof Manoranjan Sinha said it will not be an exaggeration if Geetiswami is called the creator of Bishnupriya Manipuri literature. He also highlighted the contribution of another poet, Leikhomsena Sinha.

The function also witnessed the felicitation of two personalties — Bhairab Sinha of Tripura and Biresh Ranjan Sinha — by DILS, a socio-cultural and literary organization. In his speech, DILS president Debojyoti Sinha said Geetiswami could best be identified as the national icon of the Bishnupriya Manipuri community.

In his presidential address, Prof Kamini Mohan Sinha laid stress on unity and integrity in the Bishnupriya Manipuri community so that it can survive various odds that are bound to come in their social life ahead. He made an appeal to the community members to follow the footsteps of Geetiswami.

A Brief Biography of Sahid Raj Babu Sinha

Published on the 104th Birthday anniversary of Sahid Raj Babu Sinha

By Jogendra Sinha

Raj Babu Sinha was born on November 29, 1905 at Chiporsangan of the present Hailakandi district of Assam. His father’s name was Choba Sinha and mother Kusumi Devi.

The family of Raj Babu Sinha shifted to Masughat, Cachar, in the period between 1914 and 1915. Chouba Sinha died in the year 1916, and mother in the year 1922.

Under the guidance of Nandalal Sinha and aunt Gidhisou, he spent his childhood. In 1916, he was admitted into the Masughat Higher Primary School and passed it in 1921 with scholarship.

After coming out from the Masughat Higher Primary School he took admission in Sarat Kalimohon Practising Middle Vernecular (MV) School. In 1923, he passed the MV School with scholarship in first division. He took admission in the Silchar Govt Boys High School in 1924, and joined Calcutta University in 1930.

Through out his school life, Raj Babu Sinha was deeply associated with social activity. He established Balak Samity in his native village Masughat.

The Balak Samity used to meet on every Sunday where he imparted moral education to the boys. The Samity also got involved into activities like constructing village paths.

Raj Babu Sinha became Manager of the Manipuri Patrika ,which was published from Silchar. The Manipuri Patrika had luminaries editors like Late Samarjit Sinha and Dr Laireng Khomba Singha.

The year 1931 is an important year for the Manipuri community. It is in this year that British Government counted the community as “tribals”. The entire Manipuri community from Assam and undivided India unitedly opposed the declaration. In several meetings, the decision of the British Government was opposed.

Raj Babu Sinha placed the historical documents of the Manipuris before the Government and urged the error to be rectified, and count the Manipuris as caste Hindus. In 1932, the British Government accepted Manipuris as caste Hindus.

This development allegedly annoyed some people who were against the Government’s decision and with the role played by Raj Babu Sinha. On the night of 15th phalgun, Bengali Era 1340(March 1933), while coming back from the Manipuri Patrika office, situated at Tarapur, Silchar, he was attacked and killed.

After 7-day his body was found floating in the Barak river. The society declared him "martyr" for his precious role in changing the government’s decision.

People collected money for his "shrad" by singing the song "Samajor mangal koranir kajje… ahesil Rajbabu ae bhabe" composed by Late Komalkanta Sinha of Meherpur. The shrad ceremony started with the chorus prayer song composed by Late Nileshwar Mukherjee of Tripura.

A Brief History of Gokulananda Geetiswami

Gokulananda was born on November 26 in 1886 in a village called Madhavpur in Bhanubil, Bangladesh. He shifted his residence from Bhanubil in 1925 to Tripura at a village named Ratachhera. He was a man of intellect and revolutionary thoughts who always thought for the upliftment of the Bishnupriya Manipuri people.

In order to reform the society, he travelled far and visited villages after villages to spread his message through singing. The Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha for his contribution to the community honoured Gokulananda, also known as Gokul Kirtani, with the title “Geetiswami” in 1993.

He was a litterateur, a politician, a composer, and a dramatist. Gokulananda used to sing “padkirtan” as a means to reach the backward Bishnupriya Manipuris who were sparsely distributed in Assam, Tripura, Bangladesh, Manipur, and Myanmar. The “padkirtans” that Gokulananda performed were mainly of “Maanbanjan”, “Noukavilas”, “Subal meelan” etc those were related to the cultural and religious aspect of the community. He also tried to influence the people by singing his verses, studded with jokes and fun to bring awareness among the Bishnupriya Manipuris.

He became an elected representative of the Communist party of India in 1950 in the then Territorial Council of Tripura. He died on July 10, 1962 after rendering his invaluable service for the development of the community.

Saare Jahan Se Acha Hindustan hamara


By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

Students of Kendriya Vidyalayas, the largest system of Central government schools in India, which serve children of Defence Personnel, share something common in their experiences of school days.

About the school:  A Central School or Kendriya Vidyalaya, has always a vibrant and invigorated environment with frequent transfer of students. The most distinct feature that characterizes a central school is its creating a mini-India in the school. KV Students are mostly the children of personnel under different armed forces posted out to different parts of India. They speak different mother tongues, born and brought up in different localities, defence campuses, and bring with them traits of all these specialties.

A student who has studied in different Kendriya Vidyalayas located in different regions of India could hardly remember all the friends’ name who had once shared his bench, and classroom in his schooldays. It is often seen one-third students who make a new class usually left at the end of the academic session, changing the overall look of the whole class, and the whole school.

A student remaining in a school for more than 3 years is often being asked the silly question: When will your father get posting? I remember, this question was frequently asked to my brother by his teacher in KV Air Force Station, Srinagar, J&K.  Got irritated, my brother once said, “Sir, my father has got posted to Andaman and Nicober Island!”

The entry of new students in a class sometimes creates havoc for the old students! Especially, when they remove the topper tag from the earlier class toppers very cruelly and change the dynamics of the whole class. I had seen such incidents so many times in my school life when a new student supersedes the earlier topper in studies.

Reference: It is another unique characteristic of the KV. One will find students giving reference to his friend whose father is posted in a region from where he had come. “OK your father is posted there…, you will be admitted either in that school or there…and if you get admission in that school from where I came ….meet my cousin…, my friends…and say I’m OK on behalf of me.” It is really great when you find a mentor to guide you for the journey in a new school.

Many times, it happens, a junior or a senior or even your previous classmate coming to the same school where you are studying since long time… And suddenly a student visits you referred by your previous school friends. It is so beautiful giving reference or being referred.

NDA craze: It is another feature that KVites are smitten with very early in their schooldays. Students narrate stories like folklore about how their seniors get into the Indian Army, Air Force, and Navy through the National Defence Academy. The mania goes so deep that students would have already planned where they will be joining - in the Indian Army, the Air Force or in the Indian Navy. When the D-day comes, the whole class XII students would appear for the exam at any cost! In my case, my friends went to Jammu for appearing in the exam from Kashmir, which was 300 kilometers away. And some friends went further down to Chandigarh. However, I was alone who appeared in the Kashmir valley. The center of examination was at Amar Singh College at Gojji Bagh, Srinagar.

Bharat ka Swarnim Gaurav Kendriya Vidyalaya Layega: Every KV student from Leh Ladhak to Kanyakumari, from Porbandar to Itanagar has definitely sung this song with open throat beside a music teacher with a harmonium at the assembly in the early morning. The Almighty God’s prayer ‘Daya Kar daan Vidya ka’ cleanses every KV soul with its divinity and gives amnesty for all mischief. Other songs like Saare Jahan Se Acha, Hum Honge Kaamyaab, Hind Desh Ke Niwasi Sabhi Jan ek hai…weaves the students in one string of Bharatiyata.

Armoury Mascot: One will find most of the KV schools under Air Force have fighter aircraft in their entrance. If you visit KV Borjhar, Guwahati, Assam, and KV No 2, Air Force Station, Srinagar, you would see 1971 aircraft. Even KVs under Army, you will find tanks and other artillery armoury in the campus. Visit KV Masimpur, Assam, there is a tank on the way of school.

My school days experiences of Kendriya Vidyalaya are precious memories of lifetime. In my opinion, the feeling of oneness imbued into me is due to KV culture in which I have grown up. It is really a proud feeling when some body eulogizes Kendriya Vidyalaya as one of the best schools in the country.

My friends out there, who did their schooling in Kendriya Vidyalaya, must have same proud feeling ‘Saare Jahan Se Acha Hindustan hamara.’

Writers’ forum recalls Geetiswami



GUWAHATI, Nov 27: The 114th birthday of Geetiswami Gokulananda, an alternative media mogul, was observed with a day-long programme, including an impressive cultural programme that continued till late last night, by the Bishnupriya Manipuri Writers’ Forum (BMWF) at Radhamadhab Sebashram, Maligaon, Guwahati. The programme was presided over by Radhamadhab Sebashram president Shyamakanta Sinha (Paran).

Dr Prabhat Kumar Sinha stole the show light by presenting a comparative study on various aspects of life and contribution of Kalaguru Bishnu Rabha and Geetiswami Gokulananda conducted by himself. Dr Sinha has already submitted a thesis to the University Grant Commission (UGC) on this very topic after completion of his research work.

Litterateur Manashi Sinha, while giving a detailed account on Geetiswami Gokulananda, highlighted the efforts made by the alternative media mogul and bard to uplift the condition of women. A woman activist herself, she made a fervent appeal to the women folk of the Bishnupriya Manipuri community to be conscious enough so as to get their rights at par with the male members of the community. According to her, women in the society can put an end to discrimination against them only when the fairer sex is fully aware of their rights and duties.

Among other speakers, while Advocate Biswa Prasad Sinha and youth leader Shankha Sinha threw much light on the life and contribution of Geetiswami, the BMWF president gave a detailed account on the activities of the Forum. He also elaborated various literary and social activities of the bard.

As many as 31 senior citizens of Guwahati were felicitated in the function. It was followed by a cultural nite in which guest artistes Suchitra Sinha and Shyam Kumar Sinha from Silchar performed much to the applause from the audience. Noted artistes of Guwahati Bina Sinha, Guru Bibhul Kanti Sinha (dance), guitarist Chandrika Rajkumari, budding dancer Saine Sinha, Rumi Sinha, Doll Sinha and others also presented much to the satisfaction of the capacity crowd.

Traveling to Places

Personal Jottings
By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

The only time I visit new places in Delhi is when I join in a new job - in a new location. If there is no change of job, I don’t see any other reason to pay a visit. You can say I live in a claustrophobic world. Making me round the whole city and surrounding areas – change of office, I will cite one strong reason to see this city in different time periods. It is amazing to see - How the city looks at morning office hours and at evening, when people struggle to get to their home as early as possible!

What is the importance of a new job? Not to mention, with pay hike, if there is something that goes with the change of job, it is exploring the adjoining areas, remembering the bus routes. Extend it to remembering the shortest routes to get into office. It is altogether a new vibrant world. New colleagues, new office culture and new bus conductors.

Looking back in my life, I see I had been maintaining a self-imposed radius of my traveling or visits. When I was in Guwahati, Assam, my radius of my visit was up to Maligaon for three years till I graduated, it got extended to Silpukhri only due to the Assam Tribune, and up to Bangagarh area again due to The Sentinel office, to Kalapahar area with NETV office. Besides these places if someone asks me where is 6 Mile or Khanapara or Christianbasti in Guwahati city. My answer is: I don’t know. This was my radius.

While in my shool days in Kashmir, the story was not so different. Though traveling in Kashmir is at ones own risk. I never had the penchant (or courage) to venture out to (I believe there is two population residing in Kashmir. One, local Kashmiris, and second defence personnel) Kashmir beyond fences and security posts. Minus my school which was situated at Srinagar Airport, and occasionally visiting the tourist places, I haven’t visited the real Kashmir. For me “Kashmir” was my fortified campus.

Tour Delhi. It only occurs while traveling to office. Jantar Mantar- Oh… I change my bus there. Lotus Temple – Hey…my cab used to go adjacent to its wall. Lal Qila – recently I have started visiting the place. Delhi Metro – it is one of the primary modes of traveling in my traveling schedule. These are some reactions that come up when someone enquire me about these places or about the Delhi life. Has there been a time when I visited places in Delhi with the bent of exploring mind? No…

Swinging of a poor soul from home to office and back ironically is full of experience. More one narrates about the Delhi Metro, it is less. Why not? It has changed the face of Delhi. How it criss-cross the whole city, from the densely populated Old Delhi to distant places like Dwarka? It is a fantastic feeling traveling in the late hours, more so observing the activities of commuters.

One can see old commuters doing their yoga postures in the Delhi Metro! And some engrossed into books, magazines. Don’t get jerk, if you are reading a novel and the author sitting beside you and asking, “How is the book?” It has happened with me.

If you love war movies, you can observe the war scene unfolding in the Rajiv Chowk Metro station at the office time. How the commuters prepares themselves to board at this station just like they (soldiers) landing in Normandy. Even the motion of the commuters at this station will recall you the Physics’ lesson: Brownian Motion.

Besides the Delhi Metro, if there is something that can’t be ignored in the Delhi traveling itinerary, it is the DTC bus conductors. Beware of the DTC bus conductors. My advice. One mistake, and you will not find a place to hide in the big city.

So, this was about my interaction with places and traveling experiences in Delhi that has all happen due to job change.

Children's Corner

Ritwick Sinha, Class-III,
Don Bosco Sr. Sec. School, Guwahati.

Children’s Day is universally celebrated every year on November 20. In India, this day has been preponed to November 14, because the date marks the birth anniversary of the freedom fighter and independent India’s first Prime Minister, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. Children’s Day in Hindi is known as Bal Diwas.

Jawaharlal Nehru was born on November 14, 1889 in Allahabad. His father, Motilal Nehru was a famous lawyer of his time. His mother’s name was Swaroop Rani. Jawaharlal Nehru was the maker of modern India. As a child, he was brilliant, kind, and was loved by all. As he grew up, he became the beloved of all the children, and they called him ‘Chacha Nehru’. He said that children are the future of a nation and the citizens of tomorrow. He felt that children are the strength of a country.

As a tribute to this great man and his love for children, his birthday is celebrated all over India as Children’s Day. Schools celebrate this day by organising various cultural programmes. Special functions are held to honour children all over the country. Various competitions like quiz, fancy dress competitions, etc., are organised on this day. Therefore, Children’s Day is a very special day, for us all.

    The Singer Artist

    By Pratibha Sinha, Guwahati

    "Captain Kumardhane, Thektara manurta buliya, sab samay sarbada asego.." (Paritraan movie)

    This was Ashutosh Sinha who played the role of Captain Kumardhan, the cunning and manipulative Zaminder of Paritraan. Like a true artist Ashutosh loves to experiment and explore the talent in him. He is a singer, an actor and a social activist.

    Since his college days, he started singing in Hindi, Bengali and Assamese, and had performed in various occasions in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Shillong, even in Assam, Tripura and Bangladesh.

    He has given his voice in many audiocassettes produced by singers and producers. It was in the year 2002 with the release of EMAA, a patriotic song that Ashutosh went on releasing one-after-another Bishnupriya Manipuri songs. In 2004, he produced MINGAL, in 2005 JAIRIGA RAI KOMOLINI (Devotional song ) and BULURI MI (his 2 songs recorded in this audio cassette was released by singer Ms. Debjani Sinha).

    Born on March 29, 1957 at village Burunga, Patharkandi, Karimganj District (Assam) to parents Late Krishna Kumar Sinha (Bideshi) and Magalsena Rajkumari, Ashutosh completed his schooling from Halflong College and went on pursuing Vocal Classical from Narayan Sangeet Mahavidyalaya, Maligaon (Guwahati). He also played the lead negative role in Kalling. He is a well-known traditional Bishnupriya Manipuri “Kirtani” performing in different religious/devotional occasions.

    His father was a State Government employee in the Revenue Department (Settlement) at Patherkandi. He is cousin of well-known Bishnupriya Manipuri singer - Oja Kalasena Rajkumar.

    Working as Museum Assistant in the Director of Industries & Commerce, Assam, he is also closely associated with socio-cultural activities of the Bishnupriya Manipuri community. He is General Secretary of Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sanskriti Parishad (NBMSP)/Central Committee; Cultural Secretary of Bishnupriya Manipuri Kristi Kendra; and Joint General Secretary of "Anandam", a Guwahati-based socio-cultural NGO founded by Voice of India Sa Re Ga Ma winner Debojit Saha.

    Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur 139th birth anniversary celebrated in Pune and Mumbai


    News & Views

    By Rebati Mohan Sinha, Mumbai

    Bishnupriya Manipuri Kalyan Sangthan, Mumbai-Pune celebrates the birth anniversary of Sadhu Thakur in Pune on the day of his Janma-Tithi. Sadhu Thakur’s Janma-Tithi falls on the Bhatri Dwittia day, that is two days after Dipaboli (Dwipaanjli) and a day after Gobardhan Puja. The Sangthan celebrated the Mahotsav this year in Pune on October 20 and in Mumbai on November 1.

    I feel proud and privileged to be associated with Bishnupriya Manipuri Kalyan Sangthan, Pune-Mumbai that organized the birth anniversary celebration of Sadhu Thakur and other functions of the community.

    I, on behalf of Bishnupriya Manipuri Kalyan Sagathan, take this opportunity to thank the Bishnupriya Manipuris of these two cities who have encouraged and helped us to organise the Mahotsav.

    There is a need of a religious icon for today’s society. The Ganesha Utsav in Maharashtra, was the vision of India’s great freedom fighter Bal Gangadhar Tilak. During India’s Freedom struggle, Tilak realized that his country needed a religious icon to bring collective consciousness and propagate the unity among the Maharashtrians. That could be only possible by making the Ganesha festival a public celebration. Tilak thus initiated a new resurgent movement of social awakening.

    Similarly, our vision should be to eliminate superstition and illiteracy among our people. Celebrations like the Sarbojanin Sadhu Thakur’s Janma Barshiki are important to bring community people together. These occasions present a platform where all people, poor or rich, could gather, forgetting the differences and create a healthy atmosphere for the fulfillment of the goal of Developed Society.

    Contour your body with Liposuction


    Health & Fitness

    Remember Susan Boyle of Britain’s Got Talent! How she looked in her first appearance in the musical reality show? She was unattractive, yet she awestruck the world with her innate musical talent.

    Not everyone can be Susan Boyle who was accepted solely on her singing talent. Look around and you will find people are indeed becoming conscious of their look and the way they present themselves to the world.

    They are doing their best to feel good about their health and look. Unfortunately, the modern lifestyle and poor food habits has made obesity one of the common health problems that people are facing today.

    Can an obese person shed off extra kilos and look good? Yes, there are some conventional measures like diet control and physical exercises to reduce overweight. But with the advancement in medical science, burning of extra fats around certain specific areas near abdomen, chest, back, and waist which cannot be reduced by exercises or less diet, is now possible by Liposuction. A person can definitely gain desired shape by performing liposuction on his or her body.

    What is Liposuction? The term Liposuction is used to describe a procedure to remove extra fat deposits from specific areas of the body. It is to be mentioned that Liposuction is not a quick substitute for losing weight and should not be taken as one more measure to prevent weight gain.

    In Liposuction, fat is taken away using a cannula, which is a hollow tube, and aspirator, a suction device. There are various mechanism of Liposuction: Suction-Assisted Liposuction (SAL), Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL), Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL), Twin-Cannula (Assisted) Liposuction (TCAL or TCL), External Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (XUAL or EUAL), and Water-Assisted Liposuction (WAL).

    Suction-Assisted Liposuction (SAL) is the standard technique of Liposuction. In this process, cannula is inserted meticulously through the fat layer by making a small hole in the body. It causes breaking up of the fat cells which is by the suction is drawn out.

    In the recent times, Laser Liposuction (also known as Smartlipo, laserlipo) is gaining popularity. In this technique, LASER energy is used to melt the accumulated fat.

    This was all about medical techniques to burn the extra fat and making people look good. To know more about Liposuction, search in your area qualified plastic surgeon, consult how the technique could make you feel better, and filled you with extra confidence.

    Bishnupriya Manipuri Films: A new direction to the society


    By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

    Cinema is the finest form of creativity and art. Fortunate are those who are blessed with this potential and have been in the profession of filmmaking. It is praiseworthy who had acted and had been the part of the Bishnupriya Manipuri films. The Producers, directors, actors, singers, and crewmembers are worthy of appreciation for their endeavor. These movies have sown the seeds for the future movies that will be on the community.

    Somewhere these movies, be it is the recently released Paritraan or Kalling have inspired the upcoming directors and producers to make films on Bishnupriya Manipuri community. Definitely, the new crop of directors and producers will be highlighting the different aspect of the community in their ingenious way.

    What would be the possible stories that these to-be directors would be touching? Will it be sensitizing an issue of the community, what Kalling has done? Like Paritraan, will they be presenting the changing social ethos in our villages in the movies? One cannot predict, what would be the storyline of the next movie will be? One thing is sure that they will be taking the Bishnupriya Manipuri movie to a new height, what today it is missing.

    Some might have reservation to praise these movies. Reasons might be many and valid. These movies have failed because one benchmarks it with Bollywood or Hollywood movies. If one isolate oneself, and for a moment keep himself away from the influence of movies made outside, one will definitely praise these movies. At least the critics will praise the creative juice the directors and crewmembers have poured in these movies.
