  1. Dilli Nivasi!
    Congratulation,can we say that, this is the outcome of recently formed Regional Committee of Nikhil Bishnuprita Manipuri Mahasabha at Delhi? I would like to specially thank the newly elected President, Mr.Kajalkanti Sinha, and Mr. Chadra Mohan(CM) Sinha,the Secretary for their maiden celebration of Rath Yatra.
    One more thing,I would like to add
    to this news,ie,on 8th July 2008, on behalf of Dillivasi, there will be a celebration(khechurir Palee)at Radha Kunda,where I am also invited.

  2. Though I have been deprived of attending the famous "khaloparor Kang" for the last 12/15 years, I always enquire about the preparation and arrangement of the rath yatra which ultimately promotes brotherhood and help in preserving our culture and tradition.
    Rath yatra in Delhi will not only help draw the attention of other communities but will strengthen the unity of the BM also.

    Congratulation, happy rath yatra to all BM at Delhi

  3. Congratulation...great chance and great occasion also so enjoy it...good !!!!!!!! nice article and informative also.

  4. Hey Rishi, do we come in Dhotis ?
    What say you? Lets make a dress code.

  5. There is a dress code, Henrry.
    but it is for those who will be in the inner circle of the puja...

    frankly I am excited but at the same time very nervous.

    i don't have any issue but you have to take the trouble - arranging the dhotis and of course guiding me.

    take time and contact me in my mail. OK

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

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.

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.
