From a Correspondent

Around 196 languages in India including about 120 in Northeast are included in endangered list, according to the UNESCO report - 2009. What is more pathetic is that one of the 10 Great Andamanese languages died due to death of last speaker of this language Boa Sr. in the recent past. Though such kind of information cannot deter the unwavering mind set of Bishnupriya Manipuri community, involvement of each and every community members to be in the forefront of the civilization in the world is necessary.

Keeping this view in mind, the Bishnupriya Manipuri Community of Itanagar, state capital of Arunachal Pradesh unanimously formed an organization, christened as Bishnupriya Manipuri Welfare Society in a meeting held at the side line of Kechuri Pali on July 18. A 21-member executive body was also formed with Rakhal Mishra, Shashi Kumar Sinha and Haridas Sinha as president, vice president and general secretary respectively.

However, it was a testing time for the convener of the meeting to have such an organization as our community people were determined to turn the glorious moment into a merriment with memoirs of their village life.

The meeting started with retired Govt official Shashi Kumar Sinha on chair had speakers like Brajo Gopal Sinha (SBI Itanagar), Haridas Sinha, and Satya Sinha and others.
Brajo Gopal the chief guest of the meeting in his addressed said, the community needs a malthep first in order to facilitate exchange of ideas and pave the way for marching forward. Haridas Sinha put emphasis on having a fund for organizing cultural and traditional events and look into individual problems of community people in the hours of need in Itanagar. Satya Sinha advocated for formation of an organisation to stand together.

Earlier, Convener Ranjit Sinha explained aim and objective of the meeting and called upon the participants to stand together in order to contribute in the development of the community. He also gave a brief lecture on the need of united effort to promote our culture and tradition.

The participants expressed their sincere thanks to the organizers of the Keshurir Pali and Rath Yatra. They also lauded Ranjit Sinha for bringing awareness among the community people here in Arunachal Pradesh.
