BMDC completes one year in office!

By Rebati Mohan Sinha

Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council (BMDC) celebrated year’s achievements on July 31st, 2011 at Srilo Bhubaneswar Sadhuthakur sevashram at Tarapur, Silchar. The Chairman could not attend it. The Vice Chairman presided over the meeting. The ADC with his concerned officials took part in the celebration. About 2.5 crore worth items were distributed, including items distributed in Guwahati. The items are : Auto Rickshaws — 65, Sewing machines  214, and cash amount given to some woman groups, individuals(Ishalpa/Dakula) and to some Mandirs. 

Is it a long or short-term planning? Can we presume that it is a rural-based development scheme which Govt. has approved? I think, time is not ripe to think about down-trodden farmers, who are below poverty line. In my earlier article, I have enquired whether these proud owners of the sewing machines have been trained or not? It is known fact that tailoring as an occupation in villages is not profitable, because people mostly go for readymade garments. The fund allocation is from Centre 75%, State 25%, so the state Govt. officials are very much prompt in disbursing.

However, there are few questions that are still unanswered and needed to be attended. 

#1. It has to be agreed that the Govt. of Assam with a suitable legislation was to constitute the council with satellite areas of BM villages with people living there; but so far there is no Gazette Notification, although the adhoc committee has already been constituted with 10+2 members by notification. When will the Govt. notify these villages?
#2. Let people know the development plan submitted by the Council, on which it said that an amount has been allotted.
#3. Let the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed between Govt. and NBMM, be made public so that we shall come to know whether our all long pending demands/aspirations included in it or not.
#4. What is the tenure of the present adhoc committee? What is the preparation going on for the holding of election?
#5. What will be the status of BMDC?
#6. What is the organizational structure?
#7. Will BMDC have control over Govt. officers and staff connected to it?
#8. Where is the Act or bylaw to run the Council, let it be made public?
#9. When will Govt. provide necessary one time financial assistance for development of administration infrastructure in the newly created HQtrs and Sub divisional HQtrs?
#10. What is the present status of land measuring about 3 bighas allotted in Guwahati?

  1. I request Mr.B.P.Sinha to answer all the questions appeard in this article on the behalf of that executive member of BMDC who had told him/meeting. This is for us to know what exactly transpired between him and the member.

     Does he believe that the Govt. will adhere to these so called organisations and dissolve the presnt Gazette notified committee?

    Let him read the article "NBMSU, BMSP are not BM bodies".

    Yes Govt. of  Assam who has made the notification they can desolve the same as they have done it for the DC of  Maimal Community.

    I salute the  BSP on their reference of  the article title  NBMSU & BMSP not BIshnupriya Bodies, so to morrow NBMM can be terrmed non BM bodies and my identity may be oubtful,  so I am afraid and say "Good Bye" I will never come back in future to put myself in trouble.

    I pray to almighty for the unity of the community.

  6. We are thankful to BMDC for providing a rich Exserviceman named Baag'go Sinha at Dudpur village of cachar district with one Auto Rickshaw in the recent distribution at Sadhu Thakur Sevashram Silchar by depriving the needy poor. The deal also reveals kickback to selectors of BMDC who managed to arrange the same for undue benefit.Thanks

  7. In the meeting on 31st July 2011 one of the Executive Member of BMDC has clarified almost all the question mentioned by the Veteran Leader Honourabel Rebati Mohon Sinha,  I feel he has not been informed by his informer properly.Any way, there is a good news published in a local daily that all the organisation of the community conducted a meeting jointly for desolving this  most controversial BMDC and soon the community may come back to its original position and all the uncontroversial leader of NBMSU, NBMM etc. will run the committee where there will be no ?

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

On Bhoomi Pujan for Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, performance by Sinha Sisters

Definitely, the Bhoomi Pujan for Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is momentous day for the Bhratiya Sabhyata. In this historical moment, the Bishnupriya Manipuris (living in Assam, Tripura, Bangladesh, and Manipur), the event has been beautifully captured by the artists.  PM Modi at Ayodhya Here is Sinha Sisters with their singing expressing their astha and bhakti. It is true. Bhagwan Sri Ram lives in people's heart.  Do watch. Performance by mother and daughter.

Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur

By Ranita Sinha, Kolkata Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Thakur, the great saint of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Community was born on 26th October, 1871, in a remote village of Cachar district called Baropua in the state of Assam. 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. Along with other students of his age, Sadhu Baba started taking lessons of grammar and other spiritual literature from his father. At a very young age he lost his mother but he was brought up with utmost love and care by his step mother. At the age of eighteen, Sadhu baba lost his father, so, to continue his spiritual education under the guidance of Rajpandit Mineshwas Swarbabhwam Bhattacherjee, he went to Tripura. But within one year he made up his mind to visit all the holy places and as such he took permis
