Construction of Yatri Nivas at Radha Kund in mess

By Rebati Mohan Sinha

In the last year`s Adhibeshan at Tinakhal, a construction Committee was formed with Shri Kajal Kanti Sinha (a retired Addl.Chief Engr from Tripura) as its president to start construction of Yatri Nivas by April 2008, which was discussed in the month of June at Mumbai. Last two meetings which we had in Delhi and Radhakund had been given in web site.

Twice the foundation stones were laid for the Yatri Nivas by different people in different occasions and at different time, but those two foundations became redundant and we have to demolish as it was a hindrance to the progress of the construction work. We do not understand, when the Adhibeshan was about to be held in the month of March 2008, what was the hurry for the committee members to rush to Radhakund to lay the foundation, just a month before(ie. month of February 08). Can any one substantiate the necessity to spend the public money like this? There is a needle of suspicion that there was a guiding force that worked on it.

It has been mentioned in the 4th resolution of the bulletin, published on the occasion of the Adhibeshan, that the people should start putting a rupee coin per day to a cylindrical container for the construction of Yatri Nivas wef. poila Baishakh ie.14th April 08 where as the construction work was also to start from the same month, but how was it possible? No where was it mentioned of any fund available. Till date, no one could predict the collection from various porgonas, after the lapse of five months? In that 4th resolution it was very much clear that there was no mention of budgeted amount to be collected nor time was mentioned by which the collected amount would be deposited to the Central Committee exchequer. At the same time committee was eager to start the construction work as early as possible. The work commenced with a new foundation, on last Guru Purnima day. The amount received by the Sevait also might have exhausted by now.

It was heard from a reliable source that further work could not be progressed for the want of fund. It is also heard that the president and secretary of central committee are not having any direct contact with the President, Nirman committee since the work commenced, on the contrary, enquiry is being made from the other sources about the progress of the work. Why cannot they follow the protocol? When the president (Nirman committee)can go to Patharkandi for the consultation with them, in return why cannot they at least speak to him telephonically?

There are so much lapses one could easily find, say for example in that bulletin, it was mentioned that the expenditure for 2007 has been passed; but no mention of figures about the total collection and expenditure, where as the budgeted total collection and expenditure of 2008 had been shown which is not practical. The total collection was shown as Rs.98500/-from all sources and the expenditure as Rs.26500/-.remaining amount is Rs.92000/-.Can any one build a Nivas with this fund? Where is the budgeted figure for the construction of Yatri Nivas in2008? One can believe that the bulletin is the mouth speech of the Central Committee, and the people will be quite interested to know the contents of it. This is a document people would rely on. Till today, concerned people did not receive it.

Now, it is cleared that with this limited fund we will not be able to complete the present project, therefore, it is suggested that a decision may please be taken in regard to invite sponsorship for the completion of the project. Details can be worked out like this : sponsored person should bear the cost of one room and in return he can get names of his beloved ones inscribed on the front walls. All the name tallies will be uniform in sizes and quality.

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
