By our Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 29: The Government of Tripura has evinced keen interest for the formation of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council (BMDC) for the all-round development of the Bishnupriya Manipuri community in the State. The Tripura Government, according to Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Mahasabha (NBMM) secretary general Uday Sinha, is likely to hold a meeting with the NBMM soon in this connection.

A number of central committee leaders of the NBMM, including Uday Sinha, had been in Tripura for the past few days in connection with the oath-taking of the executive members of the NBMM. Presided over by NBMM working president Sunder Mukherjee, the oath-taking ceremony at Pachartal Srimandop at Kailasahar was a smooth affair. The oath of office and secrecy was administered by NBMM general secretary Krishnadas Sinha. As many as 47 newly elected executive members of the Tripura State Committee of the NBMM took oath of office and secrecy. Following a demand from the Tripura State committee of the NBMM, the Government of Tripura extended a sum of Rs 10 lakh for purchase of musical instruments so as to develop the Bishnupriya Manipuri culture.

Meanwhile, for the compilation of history and Bishnupriya Manipuri literature, a one-day workshop was organized at Sri Sri Bhubaneswar Sadhuthakur Community Hall at Silchar by the Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sahitya Parishad (NBMSP), Assam State committee, recently. Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sanskriti Parishad (NBMSP) president Jogendra Kumar Sinha, Nikhil Bishnupriya Manipuri Sahitya Parishad (NBMSP) president Jyotiprakash Sinha, NBMSP working president Prabas Kanti Sinha, NBMSP general secretary Manasi Sinha, NBMM general secretary Swapan Kumar and others took part in the workshop.

    I m really impressed by the word WORKSHOP and would like to congratulate the organisers and at the same time I m in doubt whether the workshop was for resident of silchar or otherwise as  the names (appeared) suggest. I would request authorities to organise state wise, calling people of all walk of lives who can contribute to the cause.Pl. don't confne to office bearers of Mahasabha only.
    It is no doubt,writing a history is nothing but to recreate the past with all its smells, sights,sounds and chaos is a different ball game. Really it is a tough job of going in to details of life during a period buried in sands of time.. how people lived, what they ate, drink and smoked; how they travelled, how they made love and how they made enemies culminating to quarrels.But call it shame or lack of awareness about the past, a majority of Bishnupriya Manipuris in fact Indians are still ignorant about this phace of Indian history,despite the fact that barely 100 yrs ago there was not a section of Indian Society from poor farmers like us.

    To my mind, a language grows only when writers writes in that language. Similarly a writer grows reading other languages.And also we need of translating great works in our literature to ensure that it reaches more and more readers. When you are a translator, you are not just a congregator. It is just like an actor playing the part, he is not, but subsumes his voices.

A short history of the Bishnupriya Manipuri and their religio-cultural consciousness

Undoubtedly, the accurate period of the emergence or the development of religious consciousness of the Bishnupriya Manipuri is difficult to ascertain, but it is an old one that is undoubted, writes Rini Sinha , Guwahati .
