Singha Gautam catches NBMM president on wrong foot, warns of action

By our Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 27: Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahashabha (NBMM) vice-president Anil Singha Gautam has caught NBMM president Dr Devendra Sinha on the wrong foot on the suspension of five office-bearers of the Mahasabha and its literary and cultural wings. At an emergent meeting held recently at Silchar with its president Dr Debendra Sinha in the chair, the NBMM had suspended its vice-presidents Krishnabhallab Sinha and Anil Singha Gautam, Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sahitya Parishad (NBMSP) working president Biresh Ranjan Sinha, NBMSP general secretary DILS Lakshmindra Sinha and Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sanskriti Parishad vice-president Banabir Sinha for “anti-organizational activities”.

Reaction to the suspension order, NBMM vice-president Anil Singha Gautam said that the modus operandi followed in the suspension was “unconstitutional and illegal”. “According to the NBMM constitution, only the central general Assembly can take disciplinary action against any office-bearers of the central executive committee of the Mahasabha. However, Dr Sinha has neither convened the Central General Assembly nor the Central Executive Committee of the Mahasabha while taking the decision for the suspension of the five office-bearers. He has taken the decision at a meeting with a few of his followers. The Bishnupriya Manipuri community will not tolerate such an illegal action. He (Dr Sinha) will be properly dealt with for this action.”

Talking to this reporter, Singha Gautam said that he was shocked when he had come to know that veteran leaders of the community like Biresh Ranjan Sinha, Krishna Bhallab Sinha and DILS Lakshmindra Sinha, who sacrificed their entire life for the well-being of the Bishnupriya Manipuri community, had been suspended from their respective posts they were holding in the NBMM, Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sahitya Parishad (NBMSP) and the Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sanskriti Parishad (NBMSP).

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

He was born to a Xatriya Manipuri family. His father Sri Sanatan Pandit was a Sanskrit teacher and mother Srimati Malati Devi, a house wife. Sadhu Baba from his childhood was indifferent to all worldly happenings. He was engrossed in chanting the name of Lord Krishna.
