Sagar Pur begs the highest population of Bishnupriya Manipuri living in Delhi

The Sagarpur area in Delhi is one area where the concentration of Bishnupriya Manipuri shows the highest population from all places in the capital of India. The Bishnupriya Manipuris living in Delhi are sprinkled all around the metro city from the posh area of South Extension, CR Park to the less developed areas like Najafgarh. 

See the chart.

The population of Bishnupriya Manipuri people living in Delhi could be believed the highest among all metros in India, keeping apart the areas in Assam and Tripura. The influx of such a large population of the Bishnupriya Manipuri people is a proof of the meteoric rise of India Inc. and the prospect of job opportunity that the city provides to them.

What are the reasons that the Sagarpur got the highest number of Bishnupriya Manipuri living in Delhi? 

(1) Friends-bring- friends: This is one reason that worked as catalyst making the area as mini-Bishnupriya Manipuri town. Most of the residents are young boys in early twenties who have brought their friends and relatives.

(2) Rs 1700~Rs 2000 Rent: The room rent in the area swing between Rs 1500~ Rs 2000, in USD 31.6 U.S. dollars to 42.11400 U.S. dollars. The rooms are shared by two to three people. More than three people sharing a room are not allowed.

(3) Connectivity: Is one more factor that has made this area the highest concentration of Bishnupriya Manipuri people. It is near to the call centre hub Gurgaon and other business areas of Delhi. Most of the boys work in call centre and in retail. 

Other areas in Delhi where Bishnupriya Manipuri people are sprinkled include: Dwarka, Madangiri, Munirka Village, Palam, Khanpur, Lakshmi Nagar, Mahipalpur, Dakshinpuri, Manglapuri, Inder Puri, Malviya Nagar, Mehrauli, Patparganj, Khanpur.

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

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.
