A troupe of Bishnupriya Manipuri music artistes led by Dr Sushanta Sinha showcased their talent on the Rising Day of the 14 Battalion of the Border Security Force, the world’s largest paramilitary Force, on April 1, 2009 at Rangrung Tea Estate, Kailasaher, Tripura.

The song “Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon…” sung by Nabanita Sinha where it swept the sentinels of the border into patriotic fervour; Babita Rajkumari with Bhupen Hazarika’s “dil hoom hoom kare …”, Subarna Sinha’s “O Maji Re…” , “Dolna Dolna…” by Aditi Sinha, were able to stole the show with their performance.

  1. Dear,
    I am really touched to read this piece of news, as I am a member of both. I m most probably the first Assistant Commandant (Direct Entry) in BSF, from our community.

    Assistant Commandant (direct entry) is Class A gazzetted Officer job of Central govt., selection for which is conducted every year by the UPSC. I am basically an Instructor of BSF. Every year, I hope of seeing some of my bishnupriya brothers in the training, but till date I have found none, though every year there is representation of Maities. With this forum I make a call to all my brothers to join this elite force, and bring glory to our mother land and Community of course.

    I joined as an Assistant commandant in 1993 and at present a Second-in-command at the age of 40 years.. If by the blessings of my Father and mother, and by the grace of God everything goes on smoothly, I may become a Commandant by 2011. if I am posted to my native place- kailashahar, Tripura, it will be certainly an icing on the cake.. If I can be of any help, pl do contact me i have filled in my detail in the ''let us locate ourselves''.
