140th birth anniversary of Shree Shree Bhubaneswar Sadhu baba in Bangaluru

By Shila Sinha, Bangaluru

On October 25, 2009, the 140th birth anniversary of Shree Shree Sadhu baba Bhuvenaswar mahotsav was celebrated at a Krishna temple of Kormangla in Bangalore. I was lucky to be a part of this auspicious occasion. I was rather surprised to see so many families and enthusiastic young stars present over there.

Before coming to Bangalore it was beyond my imagination that there would be such a big society of Bishnupriya Manipuri in this city which is the fastest growing city of information technology in India. I felt proud of my society.

At the beginning of the occasion, puja was held. After that cultural programme started and it continued for sometime. Everything took place very smoothly and systematically. For that I must give thanks to a few enthusiastic, energetic and lively youths namely Prabal, Mrinal, Swapan, Santosh & all. They left no stone unturned to accomplish this festival. After bandara interaction, session went on for sometime.

Many men and women employed in different profession introduced themselves and expressed their views regarding forming a committee to organize this sort of occasion in near future.

At the end I must not forget to convey my heartiest thanks to all seberies & ema indals who render their great help to make this auspicious occasion of Sadhu Baba mohotsav most successful.

Today is Imsha Imsha (Wednesday)

What next?


  1. Before I could write something about the celebration,allow me to correct the very Mahotsav of 139th
    birth anniversary of Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur,not 140th
    anniversary. It can be written as
    140th birth day instead of anniversary or 140th Janma Tithi of Sri Sri Bhubaneshwar Sadhu Thakur.

    After a long spell,my dear Prabal
    and his associates Mrinal, Swapan
    Santosh and many others did the job successfully. I am very much
    proud of people like Sri Debasis,
    Prabal and others whose names I can not recollect today, who had encouraged me by nodding their heads in response to my proposal of this festival, in the first ever meeting held in Bangalore, in the community hall of Trinity Acres at Kormangala.The credit goes
    first to Srimati Renu Sinha the mother of Debasis who made all the arrangement including evening snacks.

  2. Thank you Rebati mama for your encouraging words.

    Just to re-iterate one fact to the larger world. This event or for the matter, any event, cannot be performed by merely few visible hands. We too had a team, some in the forefront and few in the background, highly energetic, who wanted to bring about a change. The list is long, and i dont want to miss out anyone by not naming them here. But yes, this was definitely one hell of a TEAM WORK. It can only get better from here.


  3. dear rishi,
    During celebration of shree shree Bhubaneswar Sadhu Thakur we should remember Shri Rebati kaka for his detemination and dedication for the same at Pune ,mumbai,bangalore,kolkata, australia and may be more.
    I salute his motivation to people and making it a success.

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

Definitely, the Bhoomi Pujan for Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is momentous day for the Bhratiya Sabhyata.

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. 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. 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. But within one year he made up his mind to visit all the holy places and as such he took permis
