  1. The news item of Sentinel. 
    “Govt. Of India
    will very soon  issue the OBC status to
    BM Community.” How much  would it be
    reliable? And what assurance did Mahasabha receive from GOI,for which this
    announcement has been made? Having a BM- MLA at his disposal( for whom he was
    longing for), the NBMM president has taken four long years (after winning of the
    SC case) to get the amendment done by the Govt. of Assam. Every Bishnupriya
    Manipuri knows, the OBC status had already  been bestowed on us, only the word ‘Bishnupriya’
    was to be prefixed as per SC order.In that case how can we assure that it would
    not take longer time? Delhi
    is far more away from Silchar than Guwahati.


    And we can’t 
    understand why was the stale news, WPT& BC letter TAD/BC/126/2006/Pt-
    1/30(A) dated 07 Sept. 2010,  was
    published in ‘Sentinel’ after a lapse of 8 months? Is it to tell the people
    that Mahasabha has no official address other than  one mentioned below or for publicity to gain
    cheap popularity?

      The news item of
    Sentinel  “BMDC in Tripura likely” can
    not be digested, because source is not at all reliable. So far no local papers,
    carried this  important news. Let NBMM
    Secretary General Shri Uday Sinha come up with the real fact. It was found out
    from a very reliable source in Govt. that there have not been  any such talk held so far on BMDC. Let the
    NBMM state committee clarify the news ie. in which level of Govt. they had a
    talk. News  which has been received is, as
    follow ;-

    On July 26, an oath taking ceremony was held  at Dalugao, Kailashahar where only 22 members
    took oath, not 47 as suggested by Shri Uday Sinha, the Sec. General. In that
    meeting a resolution was taken that a deputation  would go to Agartala to submit the demands
    :-1.   for a DC for BM and  2. Appointment of BM language teachers. I
    couldn’t fathom why was Shri Uday Sinha silent on this burning issue? We must
    be very careful about  the distorted news
    spreading around and as we take all the news coming up from NBMM ,BMDC or
    others as true  staying far from the


    So far, office bearers never come up with the news on renewal
    of NBMM registration  after the show cause
    notice was served by the Registrar of Society? I would like to request NBMM
    authority not to play with the sentiment of people. Be justified and transparent


    The above article or remarks are for the name of curiosity
    not for criticize or blame.

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
