Functioning of BMDC

 By Rebati Mohan Sinha, Mumbai

Today the outmost challenges in front of us is of unity, discipline and obedience, may be at home, at schools, offices and even running an organization, like Mahasabha or Development Council etc.

Unfortunately, in the Bishnupriya Manipuri society, we are so busy protecting ourselves that we don’t bother about other’s problems. So no one is complaining about retrospective changes taking place around us. Today, no one figures out what a dangerous precedent we are setting. Yet no one bothered about monitoring of work being done by the contractor in our own villages, nor even the project-allotted fund being spent on road construction/ drinking water facilities etc. There is no watch-dogs system in our society.

For the benefit of the  Bishnupriya Manipuri society a questionnaire is prepared for the newly formed committee of Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council to answer sincerely, rather educating our people by answering these questions. 

1. When the notification of the BM DC contiguous area, comprising of Bishnupriya Manipuri satellite villages, will be published by the Govt. of Assam? Will there be an inclusion of Metro-city and towns in that contiguous area?
2. When will be the publication of By Law/Constitution/Memorandum to run the Bishnupriya Manipuri Council?
3. When will be the publication of Organizational Structure vis-a-vis power and function of the council? Who will convene the council meetings, when the Commissioner and Sec, WPT& BC is the member Secretary of the council? 
4. When was the council meeting held to finalise the development plans for submission to Govt. along with the probable expenditure incurred?
5. When will the Govt. declare fund allotted to BM DC? Any time or after Budget session?
6. Can any emissary of BM DC bring documents, pertaining to fund allotment, for the State, from New Delhi? (We have heard the name of the emissary ) 
7. Will the allotted fund be spent by the Govt. departments on the development plan submitted by the council or disburse straightway to BM villages for their own development? (The council members are propagating in villages that money would be disbursed very soon.)
8. As per Govt. notification No. TAD/BC/491/07/131 dt.20 Oct. 2010, “The Govt. of Assam is pleased to constitute the BM DC, Assam” with a list of member, but nothing mentioned about its tenure, has it been made as an adhoc basis, untill the election is held?


  1. As demanded by Mr. Rebati Mohan Sinha, it is the proper time to explain and publish everything about BMDC to people in various corners of the state, Assam. Starting from Block Committee to District level committee, each member should know the details so that they can proceed to each & every corner to come in contact with the functioning of the BMDC. We request our honorable chairman to make such an arrangement at the earliest.
    Long Live BMDC, Jai Ema Bishnupriya.

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
