The Bishnupriya Manipuri Kalyan Sangathan, Pune, organised a picnic on the eve of New Year in the woods of National Defence Academy, Khadakvasla, Pune on 4th January 2009.

Members from Mumbai reached the picnic spot, before Punities, at 0930 hrs. The entire arrangement was done in the Army fashion i.e. the erection of pandel with shamiana and truck load of furniture. The whole celebration was organised by Col. Nani Kumar Sinha. The Punabasi arrived at around 1030 hrs after a long search of the picnic spot.

At around 1100 hrs all the members and their families took their seats in the pandel to observe 1-minute silence for the departed soul of late Advocate Krishna Sinha, father of Srimati Kumkum Sinha, the Deputy Director of Education, Assam. Late Krishna ukil was the pioneer of the construction of Sri Sri Bhubaneswar Sadhu Thakur mandir at his birthplace at Baropua, presently known as Bhubaneswar Nagar. He was a silent social worker, and he left us for heavenly abode on 1st January 2009.
As usual the picnic program started with distribution of snacks with cold drinks to the children, followed by adults. There were plenty of group discussions among different age groups, especially among ladies. There were children’s game and dances where elders also joined them. 
The food preparation was done in a traditional manner i.e. with firewood and traditional menu. The mouth watering papaya chinchu and kholor irolpa - it was a ladies special. The food was served by purijelei. The gathering was of about sixty five including children. 

There was a snap meeting, before dispersion, where Sri Rebati Mohan Sinha briefed about the disbursement of money to the bomb blast victims at Guwahati, also reminded the gathering of forthcoming Adhibesan of Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha at Kailashahar, Tripura on 13, 14 & 15th Feb.2009 and the Adhibesan of Sri Sri Radha Madhavjiu Seva Puja Parichalan Samiti at Maligaon, Guwahati on 15,16 and 17th March 2009.

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 .
