The Holy Shridham Radhakhunda

The Bishnupriya Manipuris are lucky enough to have a community temple, named Radha Madhavjiu, in Radhakunda. It was founded in 1843 by a saint Pundarikaksha Sharma from Khalapar, Patherkandi, Karimganj, Assam by the power of divine grace. By Rebati Mohan Sinha, Mumbai The immortal love of Radharani and Sri Krishna is the highest form of love, which is worshipped by all Krishna devotees (bhakts) across the globe. The divine love teaches selfless and unconditional pure form of love to the devotees who sing devotional hymns in its praise. This very love of Radharani and Sri Krishna is still alive in Shridham Radhakunda, one of the holy places of highly spiritual significance in India as it is said to have been blessed by Sri Krishna and her consort Radharani. There is an interesting story related to the existence of Shridham Radhakund. The story unravels the deep love of Sri Krishna for Radharani. It says that on one occasion, Sri Krishna killed a bull demon. When Radharani came to

Rudra Singh Higher Secondary School at Kailasahar, Tripura was established in 1872

Prashanta Kilikdar, Headmaster, Rudra Singh Higher Secondary School at Kailasahar, Tripura is a person who didn’t switch off his mobile when a Delhi mobile number was flashing intermittently for many days. He was patient, enthusiastic receiving each and every call. Test of his patience came very visible when he answered all the minute queries put forward by the interviewee.  By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi The Rudra Singh Higher Secondary School at Kailasahar, Tripura is not a school of this day. The history of the school dates back to 19th century, when India was still in the clutches of British Raj and the present State was nowhere in the political map. One can imagine the state of education in those days.  But it didn’t deter people to embrace the importance of education that it brings to the society. The grand foresight that education is necessary for the overall development of an individual and it is instrumental to the upliftment of any society, was well understood by Rudr

Watch the photos of Mahasabha meet in Tripura

The Platinum Jubilee of Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) held at Kailasahar, North Tripura on February 13, 14 and 15, was organised at a “grand” scale. Participation of the people in the conference was “euphoric”.  Can you visualize the words “grand” and “euphoric” used above with the 43rd conference of Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha? Perhaps, not!  Since those who were present there can only understand and appreciate the words “grand” and “euphoric”. Rest, who were not at the place, like most of us, can’t have an affinity to the event or to these words. For them the words are hollow and insipid. Truth is that, it is not.  So, coming to the rescue of those who haven’t been at this event, a visual representation can definitely point out to the nature it was carried out.  The blog comes up with a string of photos depicting the whole event.  The first slide is a collage of all the photos captured in “2009” shape highlighting that the event had taken place in the

All’s well that ends well

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi For millions of online publishers who are using the services of the web-based feed distributor FeedBurner, for them the February month had been tough and full of anxiety. They had to transfer their website’s / blog’s feed from FeedBurner to Google. Importance of FeedBurner could be gauged from the fact that the blog is using the services of FeedBurner to distribute content feeds to its subscribers. The email alert they are receiving in their inbox it is through it. The management of the subscribers is being done using FeedBurner. With so much in stake, remaining away from Feedburner that is for a whole month was like living with out oxygen. Not only one go blank with the subscriber list but at the same time statistics that the blog generates. Sleepless night had been spent by millions of FeedBurner’s users; they endured hard at this crisis time! The change of platform brings with it litany of other changes. One had to master the transition and at

“Mumbai chalo” missing in Bishnupriya Manipuri youths

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi People always compare between MUMBAI and DELHI. And they love to do it. Their comparison ranges from the history, to the present economic and infrastructure advancement and of course to the culture of the people that both the cities carry. If Delhi gains the point being the capital of India, Mumbai steals this being the financial capital of India, and the entertainment capital of Indian sub-continent. We can go on and on discussing, analyzing that both the cities have to offer. However, to the question what it is the status in terms of strength of Bishnupriya Manipuri living in Mumbai and in its suburban areas.

Reasons for our survival: disciplined food habits, aachar and wearing kathi

The small geographically scattered Bishnupriya Manipuri community has been able to preserve its unique socio-cultural identity because of its innate qualities like disciplined food habits, purified behaviour ( aachar ) and by wearing kathi , said CK Sinha while addressing a congregation of Bishnupriya Manipuri people living in Delhi on March 8, 2009.  CK Sinha from Kailasaher, Tripura visited Delhi after presenting a paper “Indian Civilization through the Millennia” in an international conference held at Shobit University, Hastinapur Research Institute on February 27-28, 2009.  The community that would have gone vanished, “anthropologically extinct” he said, “it is due to three reasons” that the community still carries the ancestral heritage magnificently. They still possess the same solid idealistic belief from the core of their heart. No calamities through centuries could damage their ideology nor could any attraction. Even today when all the races have been contaminated either by

Mahasabha launches http://mahasabha.org/

In a welcome development for the Bishnupriya Manipuri community as a whole and in particular for the organization, the apex socio-cultural body of the Bishnupriya Manipuri community the Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) has resurrected its site mahasabha.org that remained in oblivion for years on the internet.  “The same sites but starting from the 0-point again”, said the architect behind the site, Uttam Singha.  Hacking has been cited as one reason for the site remaining out of the reach for most of the Bishnupriya Manipuri netizens. “Old site hacked by hackers and injected some spams inside the server, so I did not want to keep old contents, and it might affect some users, so I have to shut down the site” said Uttam Singha.  “I really do not know the answer, but this site will inspire our members to open some other new sites, and we won't be left-behind society from the internet/today’s world. Mahasabha is an international organaization, and should have a m

Outsourcing Employees: Wake Up!

With all the focus in the outsourcing industry, there has been an intense scrutiny over the sustenance and credibility of it. You can hardly ignore the gripping that the same youth is getting into. A thought of where do I see myself 5 years down the line? Is the industry going to be in there for a long time, what will I do afterwards? All of that. In spite of his happy present, his thought process is limiting and cannot see beyond . By Prabal Atreya The buzzword Outsourcing today needs no introduction among the average Indian Youth. We see other synonyms in the form of Call Center, BPO, KPO, LPO etc. An average graduate looks out for one of these as soon he steps out of college. He brings along a fat salary in the first month itself, quite unheard of during the previous generations. Suddenly, he/she belongs the most suited son/daughter, boyfriend/girl friend, husband/wife. In comes a lifestyle, where black and white is just a color, gadgets became a must-have, shopping experiences
