Crisis in NBMM

Rebati Mohan Sinha

The problem today with the Mahasabha is that its administration has become divorced from the mechanism of power. When the power comes from a clearly identified source and when its continuance is depended on how well it serves the interest of those that elected him, there is always a need for the ‘powerful’ to keep the interest of their people in mind. What makes it particularly interesting is that the problems have come not from outside; but from within the NBMM. It is clear that something fundamental has gone wrong, which makes the administration incapable of dealing with complex issues meaningfully, like what that happened recently in Singari near Silchar.

Quite often, it has been pointed by senior members of the Mahasabha that the design flaw in the model of governance used by the President — the separation of power between him and the office bearers—coming to the fore playing itself out. He lacks authority without which he has no control over his central committee members, as a result, the administration lacks a clear leadership structure and functions as a confused babble of vested interests, egos and animosities.

The arrogance that we see often in the way Mahasabha’s spokepersons come across is not the arrogance of power; but merely the smugness of patronage.

Any sincere and dedicated effort will succeed, provided one is systematic and determined towards a reasonable goal. One must have patience and though being ambitious should not be guided by short cut.
Issues should be relevant to the society. If you are convinced of any thing relevant which is good for the society, You can be the leading light and others will follow.

At the rate at which we are going, we are heading straight for the chaos and inevitable doom. This is precisely why we need to have a committee that isn’t afraid to do something drastic enough to prevent our society from that point of no return.

Merely calling ourselves Bishnupriya Manipuri will not change the way we feel about our society. A larger change has to come from education and inculcating a basic love for our fellow society men.

It is shocking that this now, which could have been amicably sorted out between the rival group and the administration of NBMM, has assumed such a grave proportion.

Mahasabha has mishandled this issue and is now calling it unfortunate that the rival group has formed a Central Committee and this issue should have been handled more tactfully. It is intriguing as to why the Mahasabha took such a tough stand against the rival group.

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
