I must not regret

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

Getting a job in Central and State Government – comes as a chimera for the Bishnupirya Manipuri masses. Why not? Because of red-tape, corruption and irregularity in the employment generation routine – majority of the educated youngsters don’t even look at it. To be precise, it is not true in the case of UPSC conducted exam. It is based on merit, and only on merit. Here again we face the same question – we don’t have enough educated, confident mass to compete in this exams. So, one option is left for class 10 and Class 12 passed youngsters to try hand in to become a fauzi.

I won’t say anything about them who try hard to get in the military jobs. After all who am I to dictate what they should do and what they shouldn’t. They have a responsibility on their broad shoulder of their parents, brothers and sisters. They know much better than me. But in my occasional visits to villages when I see aspirants preparing themselves for this job, I feel good that they will soon get transformed into “man” of responsibility, upon which the whole nation will rely upon.

However, this article is not for those who have made up their mind to get into government jobs or private jobs, they have already decided their fate. It is for those who are in predicament state – where to go: government jobs or private jobs.

Before a candidate comes to a decision, he must know himself, first. What pushes him, what does he think about himself and about others, and what are his personal aspirations and how he sees himself in future? Knowing that, there are pros and cons in both these sectors.

Government jobs (read becoming a fauzi):

  • It gives you instant stability in your life. You see your life smoothly running.
  • You are saved from unnecessary harassments, for your parents and relatives from many external factors.
  • Though your salary is less compared to biggie corporate czar (comparison is not good), you know you can live a decent life in a nuclear family.
  • You know the rules and regulations of your respective field that come as handy for others.
  • You roam all parts of India, even abroad in government sponsored trip. Good for those, who loves traveling, and traveling.
  • You see and become part of the whole BIG country, that can’t be possible in private jobs. You know the lanes and mohallas of your duty area.
  • You become a part of a BIG, expanding family of your comrades, who remains with you in your job life. You build a bond that is sometimes as thick as blood relationship.

Now coming to private jobs:

India Inc is growing. You become the part of it. There is phenomenal growth prospect with perfect knowledge base and experience.
  • Your salary may exceed 5 times more than the government employee. You take home hefty pay package.
  • You love to evolve with time. You learn and equip yourself with latest tools and technology, and management practices. Everyday is a new day for you.
  • Your future is in your hand. It may take higher flight or may lands in a barren area, if due care is not taken.
Well, there are many nitty gritty involved in both the profession. It is not possible to incorporate all of these factors here. But, one thing before one take a plunge must remember-when they look back they should not regret saying: if I would have chosen such and such profession….

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.
