Uttam Singha

By RK Rishikesh Sinha

Uttam Singha’s activities to the Bishnupriya Manipuri-specific Internet world are awe-inspiring and encouraging. His contribution to the Bishnupriya Manipuri world in the webosphere would give an enriching experience to anyone who loves to understand the history and relevance of the (Bishnupriya Manipuri) development in the Internet medium.

Hundreds of Bishnupriya Manipuri newbies who have plugged themselves in the cyberworld in the recent past might not know him as a person and his contribution to the present enriched Bishnupriya Manipuri world that he has been associated with. It is due to his singular effort that in the fluid Internet world his work still stands like steel. And on this steel, it could be said that the present blocks of Bishnupriya Manipuri internet buildings are firmly based. 

Bishnupriya Manipuri Wikipedia
Internet minus Wikipedia is stale and insipid. Uttam Singha has been associated with the presence of Bishnupriya Manipuri language in the Wikipedia. The Bishnupriya Manipuri Wikipedia was created in August 2006. It was remarkable achievement for the internet identification of Bishnupriya Manipuri. Nevertheless, what is more important is the decision to put effort in the Wikipedia, since there have been tectonic shift of users with platforms. And Wikipedia was just another platform to play upon.

Presently to the dynamics of Internet, Wikipedia (read the Bishnupriya Manipuri Wikipedia) is untouched and secure. It is going strong and hopefully no Internet-based user-centric platforms could ignore it. Today, with the volume of Bishnupriya Manipuri article presence in the Wikipedia, it makes news vibes all over the world.

It could be said that any Bishnupriya Manipuri –centric Internet activities has its loci to Bishnupriya Manipuri Wikipedia. Here, Uttam’s role is monumental and futuristic.

Lohong— The Bishnupriya Manipuri Matrimonial
Lohong was another contribution by him to the enrichment of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Internet world. The website might seem inactive and give impression of being without any activity. But, it is not. It is serving its purpose brilliantly for which it was perhaps created: to give an identity which is ‘our’ own. Lohong breaks myths about Bishnupriya Manipuris. It gives an impression of ‘something’ which we have failed collectively. Lohong is one Bishnupriya Manipuri symbol that we have created in the due course of time. One fails to appreciate Lohong if one takes the primary function of the site into consideration. But Lohong has been a potent tool or a symbol propagated in the Internet that speaks many languages to its viewers.

These are two of the contributions from Uttam Singha from many of his effort to the enhancement of Bishnupriya Manipuri. For his contribution, Uttam has been felicitated with Ningor Khuttol by DILS Association.
