Do we have“Aar More Nigsing Nais” music another?

By RK Rishikesh Sinha



Are you listening to the music here in the blog? If not, hold your headphone onto your ears and start listening to the 8 ever-green songs. Plus, if you want to carry it offline, download it. No problem! 

Well, since the day the songs went live here. I see, an activity has added in my daily working. I start my office daily-chore putting off headphone and clicking on the track number 8. I find the song soothing and very near to me. It is only because I have heard people crooning this song since my early days. (It is not that other songs are not musical.)

While listening to these songs, I give a cunning smile to myself asking – Rishi you’ve changed, things have changed, see what are you doing that was not in your daily activity: listening music and that is in O-F-F-I-C-E! Yeah! Things have indeed gone transformation. I am writing this article with headphone plugged to my ears. It seems music is slowly and steadily sipping into my veins. 

Love for these songs has become so infectious that I called singer Meena Sinha not once but twice in Guwahati. Imagine, just to ask her – how is she, and how is life going on? And yes, to listen her sweet voice. I didn’t know her earlier! 

While talking to her that enveloped topics on Bishnupriya Manipuri music scenario in Guwahati or elsewhere, it came crystal clear to me that the music industry is not matured enough. It is due to lack of availability of talented people in various departments of music making business and absence of market for the musical stuff. Very serious! Very rueful!

However, something that had leased a new life in her was the news of the release of the musical album online here in the blog. The musical stuff that would have gone unnoticed for thousands of people, they can now plug in to these songs. This is what I am presently doing: headphone still stick to my ears. This definitely gives a boost in her confidence and recognition of her talent and also for the other people who are in the music fraternity. 

Now the very core question – what we can do to assuage the pain of the singers, music directors? They are talented but due to lack of enthusiasm and rock-support they are dying and sooner or later they will be added in the history (if it is recorded!). 

How can we extract their creative juice? Is “H-E-L-P” from all of us comes as the only recourse that is in our arsenal? If so, we must. And if not, then…? 

I am still listening to “Aar More Nigsing Nais music”. Do we have another one…

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.

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. At the age of eighteen, Sadhu baba lost his father, so, to continue his spiritual education under the guidance of Rajpandit Mineshwas Swarbabhwam Bhattacherjee, he went to Tripura.
