NBMSU and BMSP are not Bishnupriya Manipuri bodies

By Rebati Mohan Sinha

To the news report, “Bishnupriya Manipuri bodies NBMSU & BMSP call for Consensus on formation of BMDC”, I reserve some opinions. Since the BMDC came into being and this group did not get even a membership in the ten-member committee, they are now desperate and running from pillars to post for their own benefit, even they went and shook their hands with their rivals like Mahasabha. 

Although nothing was written about consensus in this news item and at the same time NBMSU and BMSP cannot be termed as Bishnupriya Manipuri bodies as they claimed. These, so-called organizations never had even their Annual General Meeting (AGM) any time with an Audited Report, and simply managed by a very few individuals, namely Shri Anil Krishna Rajkumar, Shri Gopidas Sinha, Shri Sameer Sinha and Shri Subal Sinha.

During the year 2010 and first half of 2011, their names were never been appeared in print media, due to BMDC’s ongoing feud. Now, they have raised again their heads with the same old fabricated stories, even they are now-a-days propagating unity among other NGOs for the purpose of being in the lime light.

Why are they not following the proper channel i.e., the members of Assam Linguistic Minority Development Council, Shri Gopidas Sinha and Dr. Debendra Kumar Sinha? The Govt. of Assam had notified their names by a gazette. They are the persons nominated from our community. The memorandum should have been submitted to either of them instead of D.C of Cachar.

About a month back the same paper carried a similar news “ Bishnupriya Manipuri Linguistic Minority Development Council presses for Education Welfare Community,” whereas such organization by this name does not in our Bishnupriya Manipuri society. Being a member of ALMDC, why did Gopidas Sinha submit the memorandum to Chief Minister of Assam instead of placing it in the meeting of his ALMDC as per protocol? It is nothing but gaining of cheap popularity.

This group always claims that Sudeshna Sinha is their martyr. I would like to ask them, where were they on that fateful day, when she was fired upon? Why did this group along with others (youngsters) go underground instead of intensifying the agitation? Till to date, there has not been any FIR, lodged against the police. As there was no FIR lodged against them on that day, they (police) became more arrogant and started arresting innocent unemployed and school/college going students and put them in jail. There was no compensation granted to bereaved family of Sudeshna, except some amount initially offered by D.C of Karimganj District for her last rite. Only the consolation the bereaved family had got so far was their daughter’s martyrdom, conferred by these organisations like NBMM, NBMSU that did not do any thing for the family.

There are two organizations by the same name, “Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Student Union” operating from same place i.e., Silchar. It is not understood why are these organisations are prefixing ‘Nikhil’, means ‘World’ before Bishnupriya, where as their operating area is not even beyond Barak Valley! One union is headed by Anil Krishna Rajkumar, (50 +yrs of age) and other one is by Mr. G Rajkumar. Whether these Unions are even registered bodies or not, bit doubtful.


  1. Other day, on 02 Aug.2011,, Mr.Sameer Sinha in a capacity of a student leader, requested in a meeting held at Gollege Road, Silchar, to take action against author of this article, Shri Rebati Mohan Sinha. Is there any relevance?

    Mor priya Samir girok! Really,tusi great,can you really claim ,NBMSU(Anil group) and Mr. Subal's BMGSP (where you are it's Principal Secretary) a BM body or its minute parts, the organs?

    Why are you not happy with the functioning of BMDC?    .                             Did you try to meet with the office bearers of BMDC?
    Why didn't you attend the all party meeting,called by BMDC chairman on 9th Aug in Ukilpatty, Tarapur, Silchar?

    My request...Pl. come up clean with proper answers on the questions asked, instead of hitting around the bush.


  2. Dear Gopidas Sinha, your kilometre-long comment has really disheartened me since you nowhere in your version has given any credit to thousands of unknown, faceless people who were once part of your agitation. Today, you have forgotten them. You have only mentioned handful of people's names. You said, organisation is above people? Is it? Or the people are above organisation? Are you still living in Nazi period? 

    Why you people always make others to apologise? Do you think you're the highest authority of the land? Who are you to condemn people? What are the missions and visions of these organisation that you are a part? Your writing reflects arrogance. Please be humble. Is there any slang word in this comment? Baya.

  3.  Mr. Gopidas to reply....
    .1. Where were you hiding those days,when people were after your blood?And what made you to reappear suddenly in the month of June 2009 just before the teachers hunger strike ?
     2.Why didn't you hide in Vishakhapatnam in your brother's place for a longer period? Who were the  BM people chasing you from there and why?
     3.Who were the people, had driven you out of Delhi?
     4.Where did you take shelter afterwards? was it in Mumbai?
     5.Why did you shift your family from place to place? Is it because of threat?

  4. Dear Gopidas! you have certified that Mr. Samir Sinha has been dedlcating for the last fifteen years, leaving his personal carrier aside.
    How is your memory is so poor, Mr. Gopidas!, you forget things so soon. You and Samir disappeared from the scene more or less in the same time. He was from Mizoram, you, from Cachar.
    He(Samir) could manage a degree called "Bombay Ferot" of course not 'Bilaat Ferot' and went back to Chenkuri, his native place and got married.The 'Bombay Ferot' title was very much essential for him in those days, which he only can explain.
    Can we call both of you as civil activists or opportunists?

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

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
