The Great Expectation

Now when the Delhi-NCR Bishnupriya Manipuri Nagarik Samity has taken a shape with new faces in key important posts. The time has come to see how the new Samity will get involved in the fulfillment of the hopes and aspiration of the Bishnupriya Manipuri people living in Delhi and in other places. The Samity carries a great reposibility in its shoulder, on one side where it has to fulfill the expectations of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Delhites, on the other side it has to become the beacon of the whole community.

Delhi-the seat of powerful decision-makers, and hub of all religious faiths, place of residence of people from all across India and the world, and with national and international activities taking place all around, like many other advantages that the city offer-is something that the Samity enjoys than the other socio-cultural bodies of the community. At this context, the health of the Samity will be enough for other communities, respective State and Central governments, and even to our people, to gauge and come to a conclusion about the ‘temperature’ of the whole community. This is something that the Samity always has to abide with and would be expected from all quarters.

However, it would be foolish on our part to expect so much from the just-formed Samity. Now, being in the formative stage, first, the Samity has to bring its house in order. Then one could expect something miracle to happen from the Samity. The exercise must start with the registration process, it must register itself in the book of law. Secondly, it must come out with the list of activities that it has to do, or plans to do. With these constraints, at this juncture, it doesn't seem necessary to go for the 'third' reform. Let it comply with these two first.

We are assured, and confident enough that the Samity is in right hand, who are capable enough to draw the future course not only of the Bishnupriya Manipuri living in Delhi, but also of the people living in other cities, away from their roots. It has the ability to add a new golden page in the history of the whole community. Amen!!!

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
