Indeed, We are Backward

Are We Backward?


People's Response on the Backwardness issue

Here is the last response by Tridiv Sinha (New Delhi) and Suroshree Sinha (Bangalore) on the survey "Is the Bishnupriya Manipuri a backward community?".

Socially: No
Economically: No
Politically: Yes
Educationally: No
We are under represented in Class I government services: Yes

Views (Tridiv Sinha): To think of ourselves as backward would be an understatement. Socially, I haven't heard of slums of Bishnupriya Manipuri people in any part of the world. Economically, I haven't seen a beggar. Almost all of our villagers are literate, if not highly educated.

We are minority in number, that is why we are not widely known. Minority in number has nothing to do with being backward.
