Bishnupriya Manipuri in Kolkata on Dec 7 discussed upon raising of fund, registration of the Society

In a meeting held at Prince Anwar Shah Road, Kolkata on December 7, the Bishnupriya Manipuri Awakening Society discussed upon Registration of Society under the society act and ways and means of raising fund for the plot of land either in South or North Kolkata. 

The meeting was presided by Dr.Bani Kumar Sinha as President. The General Secretary, Shri Nirmalendu Sinha and Rebati Mohan Sinha as special invitee were also present in the meeting. The attendees held one-minute silence for the Assam blast victims. 

Finding registration of the Society not getting ground due to absenteeism of few members, the meeting drew a time period of three months to get the registration done. 
However, on the topic of finding a suitable location for a plot of land in Kolkata, no final decision came out from the meeting. 

The raising of fund came out as the main topic in the meeting. It was decided that rigorous collection drive should be made to the nook and corners of the city, where our Bishnupriya Manipuri people are residing. It was also decided to tie-up with Bishnupriya Manipuri residing in foreign land. 

Rebati Mohan Sinha who came from visiting blast victims in Guwahati briefed the meeting about the donation made to Guwahati bomb blast victims.

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
