The organizers have requested participation of Bishnupriya Manipuri people living in the city to attend in the celebration of the birth anniversary of Geetiswami Gokulananda to make it a grand success.


  1. We the Bishnupriya Manipuris should appreciate the news maker Miss Pratibha Sinha and RK Rishikesh Sinha for well designing and publishing our societie's programmes to world wide window. Not only this particular programm but all our society's program should be attended by everybody for uplifment of our society & to establish our presence to the other caste/community.


    In the senior persons nomenclature my father's name (Mr Basanta Kumar Sinha of Christianbasti, Guwahati)has not been included- why? He is also a senior person (Age-70 years) & definitely elder than Mr Sisir Sinha of Christianbasti whose name has been included.

    It is my warm request to you (Mr Rishi) to get/send this information from the respective organizers.


  3. Really I m over-whelmed to read
    the words felicitation to senior persons as I being a senior citizen.It is a well deserved move to recognise them because this category of people are in a trasition period.

  4. Thanks Ananta for your information. Your message has been informed to the organizers. They have noted your message and expressed their thanks for your information.

    They have also clarified the criteria of selecting the Senior citizens from Guwahati for felicitation on 26th Nov’09 and limited to only certain numbers for this year. This year the organizers have selected senior persons from the age group of above 75 years and as exceptional cases, selected 2 senior persons (aged above 60 years) due to their serious illness for long time or bed-ridden, poor physical condition and other serious cause related to the person concerned (above 60 years) due to his/her old age which can be considered as an exceptional reason.

    As informed by the organizers, Shri Sishir Sinha aged 69 years is seriously ill with a poor physical condition and was bed-ridden for long time in the recent past days due to a serious cardio-attack. Though he has recovered a little recently but still under medical treatment at home. So, the organizers had selected him as an exceptional case seeing his poor physical condition.

    A person aged more than 60 years is considered as a Senior Citizen and in Guwahati such number of senior persons among Bishnupriya Manipuris may cross above 150numbers. So, this year the organizers have selected the above 31 listed senior persons only for felicitation. There are few more senior persons aged above 75 years left who are not included this year but their names are in the list for felicitation in next year. After completing selection from the age-group above 75 years and as per available number of persons, the criteria of selecting the age-group may be brought down below 75 years and above 60 years restricted to certain numbers in the forthcoming years as decided by the organizers.

    Identifying senior citizens of the society, recognizing and felicitating them to give honour & respect is to be treated as ceremonial & auspicious and for senior persons who are not included in this year, the matter may please be not taken into sentiments or otherwise. The left behind senior persons will be included in the forthcoming years in groups as suitable for the organizers to organize such ceremony.

    The step taken by the organizers to recognize senior citizens among Bishnupriya Manipuris may please be welcomed and appreciated.

  5. Thanks Sanjib for your comment.
    In addition to your comment, I would like to add here that the news/articles published on this site are not simply informations for the readers rather the informations published on this site may record a history of day-to-day events taking place related to Bishnupriya Manipuris and other important issues in different parts of the country & world.

    History of authentic records of events concerned to Bishnupriya Manipuri are still rare to find and difficult to go through for latest informations. We people need a complete media house of information or a store house of records of information either through literature, press, digital media, internet etc. For this all our recognized bodies working for the upliftment of the community should take a joint initiative to make the communication and information channel stronger to keep record of every events taking place all around concerned to the community.

    This will be an initiative step towards development & progress & uniting the scattered population.

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
