Position of Mrs. Kumkum Sinha in BSG

By Rebati Mohan Sinha

As I was also a scout in my school days and participated in a state’s jamboorie held in Naugaon in 1956. Having read the news piece [Mrs. Kumkum Sinha Appointed Commisioner (NE Region) of the BSG]I was overwhelmed and thought of giving a brief about Bharat Scouts & Guides for the readers of this blog.

This is a voluntary non political, educational movement for young people conceived by Lord Baden Powell in 1907. The purpose of the movement is to contribute to the development of young people in achieving their physical, intellectual, social and spiritual as individual, as responsible citizens and as member of the local, national, and international communities.

I would like to give a small organizational chart which will give the position of Mrs. Kumkum Sinha as National H.Q .Commissioner for Scouts and Guides. The vice President of India is the patron of B.S&G. The organization Chart is headed by a President and six Vice Presidents and followed by the National Commissioner.

One of the National HQ Commissioners is Mrs. Kumkum Sinha.

She is the first Lady Commissioner appointed for North Eastern states and it brings pride to our Bishnupriya Manipuri community. Kudos to her and all the other unknown champions of our community who are excelling in their own fields and bringing prestige and honour to us all.


  1. Congrats to Rebati Mohan Sinha on that enlightening and nostalgia-filled atticle on Bharat Scounts and Guides. It is extremely timely - when the country's youth is losing interest in joining the prestigious Indian armed forces.Unlike in Israel and some other nations, where military service is mandotory (to school-level),the BS&G is an excellent initiation programme that needs to be revived with gusto.Best wishes - Ravi V.Chhabra (
