What next?


  1. I'm totally unsatisfied in that day. One of our beloved person Dr. Ranjit Sinha who left at 1145 hrs showing his highness in the Utshav, this type of personality never to be invited in the events. The function execution is not like our cultural heretage. Our high culture needs "lai Chandan" to every one who were present in the function, more over No " Bhug" for Sadhuthakur on the day. Even we have seen in Durgapuja, Bhug of Mata prepared by Bharman, but here we found every one came to show their highness. A president alone couldn't possible to executive all programme. It has to be pre-planned. Every one want to sit on chair, no one wish to perform his/her "Seva' to the function. We are seeing this function last three years, unfortuniately impression of our Manupuri Sampradai going down day by day in Delhi. We should not proud for our dignity. Every one is equal for this festival.
