Pune celebrates the birth anniversary Sri Sri Bhubaneswar Sadhu Thakur

On 30th October 2008 the Pune unit of Bishnupriya Manipuri Kalyan Sangthan celebrated the 138th anniversary of Sri Sri Bhubaneswar Sadhu Thakur at the site of proposed Mandir at Ramnagar about 20 km from Pune Railway station. It may be mentioned here that the plot of land for the mandir was bought in 2007 by 5 ladies of Pune and donated it for the cause.

Bishnupriya Manipuri Puneities assembled in the newly erected pandal for Adhibas. The Chief Guest from Mumbai, Sri Rebati Mohan Sinha, President of Bishnupriya Manipuri Kalyan Sangathan arrived; Sri Ramsena Sinha, Sri Kulajit Raj Kumar and Sri Babul Sinha received him with great honour. Colonel Sri N. K. Sinha was also received earlier by them. The daakula Ishalpa stood up for the commencement of the utsav after chanting of mantras by the purahit. Hearing the sound of mridang and karatals the neighbors started occupying the empty chairs. The Adhibas was ended after the Aarti.

Early in the morning,30th October, Bishnupriya Manipuri people gathered in the puja sthal to offer Prayer to Sadhu Baba and by 10.30 hrs the pedal was full. Again our Daakua Ishalpa got ready for performance. At around 2 pm the bhog was offered and followed by prasadi to all. The entire program came in to an end after sandhya aarti.

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
