Skip to main content in 2009

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi

What was the health of the site in the year 2009? Statistically speaking, over 31, 000 pages of the site were opened by 16, 000 visits of the readers.

Indian readers accounts for 77.77 per cent of the total readership of the site. Followed up by the United States (7.39 %), United Arab Emirates (3.44 %), United Kingdom (1.54 %), Bahrain (1.19 %) …

Besides these, in countries like Bangladesh, Canada, Australia, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Qatar, and Oman, the site has sizable population of Bishnupriya Manipuri readers.

However, there are readers from Norway, Spain and Hong Kong, about them it is very difficult to conclude whether they are Bishnupriya Manipuri or are those who are interested to the Bishnupriya Manipuri topics that the site is devoted to.

Readers from these countries – what do they do in the site – is interesting.

Analyzing deeper into the statistics, readers from Norway are the one who are leaps and bounds above the rest of the readers of the site with respect to average time spent on this site. They open the site for hours continuously! Whereas the average time spent by Indians is 4 minutes, the Norway readers spent more than 1 hour on this site.

What actually they do on the site? Though the visits come from Oslo, the capital of Norway, the pages of the site that are being opened are quite interesting. The readers are not voracious with each and every posts published here, the pages that were selected and read with penchant are: Is it right time for our social organizations to go online? and Let us help each other.

Are the readers from Norway Bishnupriya Manipuris or not? It is difficult to say. Whoever he or she was – if cookies to be believed – there has not been any visit after October 11, 2009 (he or she has been frantic in the initial months of the year 2009). What happened to him or her? God knows.

These are countries : Tunisia, Czech Republic, South Africa, Myanmar [Burma], Egypt, Jamaica, Morocco, Nigeria, Tanzania, Serbia, Burkina Faso, Croatia, and Rwanda, from where readers have visited the site and spent ample amount of time reading few of the articles. The readers are not Bishnupriya Manipuris.

The article on which readers spent maximum amount of time is Rasa Dance performed by Bishnupriya Manipuri community in Delhi on 18 January 2009. Total 35 minutes.

This was a short interesting glimpse of the site in this year. Let us see what it shows up the next year. What shape does it take?

Today is Erei (Friday)

What next?

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. 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.
