Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council Part (v)

By Rebati Mohan Sinha, Mumbai Learn to accept the reality of ourselves as some of us with strength and weaknesses will have some good days and bad days too. And at the same time we should not rely on any individual to do the needful for the benefit of the entire community as far as the development is concerned. Even no super human could do such job unless a collective wisdom is prevailed. Bishnupriya Manipuris demand from Government of Assam for the Development Council without any specification is similar to a demon praying God to become immortal. If at all there were a specification at the time of declaration in the year 2003 at World Conference of NBMM, it is not yet made known to general public; hence many of us are wandering where to start with after the Gazette Notification. We should be very much clear in our minds that the Government of Assam has not disbursed Development Councils to these communities: Bishnupriya Manipuris, Nath Yogi, Maimal and Moria; but the Government

Development Council: An emotional appeal (Part IV)

Read Part (III) By Rebati Mohan Sinha, Mumbai Like any proud member of Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha, I am filled with pride that our great community is getting ready to work for the Development Council, which is symbolic of our community`s honour. Bishnupriya Manipuri is a society of immensely constructive, progressive and cultured people with rich heritage, and the recently declaration of B.M. Development Council has drawn statewide admiration, as such the whole Assam State today looks upon us with respect and hope. As mentioned, Government has been making earnest efforts to provide more power to different Tribal and Backward Communities within the State, so as to bring about speedy development in the area inhabited by these groups. The objective of setting up of Development Council is to provide maximum possible autonomy within the framework of the Constitution of India for social, economical, educational, ethnic and cultural advancement of the communities in the State.

Online Enterprise

By RK Rishikesh Sinha, New Delhi (The Article published in the  Assam Tribune on September 4, 2010) The Internet has made the world flat. Now anyone connected to the Internet can peep into any city and get a visual glimpse of its infrastructure and facilities. Running Google Maps through the Guwahati city gives an interesting insight how various educational institutes and business enterprises are taking advantage of the World Wide Web. Hovering above the Guwahati city, thanks to Google’s satellite imagery, where the city gives a panoramic view of its natural beauty, it also throws up business establishments which have embraced the Internet. For any city, its presence in the Internet speaks a lot. It is found that the city-based educational institutes are the one which has adopted the Internet tool the most, followed by the hotel industry. Unfortunately, the presence of educational institutes and hotels in the Internet doesn’t paint a rosy picture of the whole city. There are innume
