Skill Development & Capacity Building

— A DEMAND OF BISHNUPRIYA MANIPURI YOUTHS & WOMEN  — By Pratibha Sinha, Guwahati Geetiswami Gokulananda, a thinker, social reformer and philosopher always thought seriously for the deplorable conditions of the Bishnupriya Manipuri people and the society at his time and said to his dear community fellows - “ Aar aar jaator majhe shilpa bidya aache, aami koti hinpasilang amartat nei buliya ”, it means - “we feel very sad seeing our fellow people do not have any art of skills while the other community people posses a classified art of skill”. It’s a dream of every human to live in a peaceful, healthy, balanced and developed society and the same was also a dream of Geetiswami Gokulananda. A dream of a developed society can only be a reality and possible when the key elements of the society are harnessed properly. People have realized that if the key members of the society are kept paralyzed, then, dreaming for a healthy and developed society is of no avail. Youth power is one of t

Uttam Singha

By RK Rishikesh Sinha Uttam Singha’s activities to the Bishnupriya Manipuri-specific Internet world are awe-inspiring and encouraging. His contribution to the Bishnupriya Manipuri world in the webosphere would give an enriching experience to anyone who loves to understand the history and relevance of the (Bishnupriya Manipuri) development in the Internet medium. Hundreds of Bishnupriya Manipuri newbies who have plugged themselves in the cyberworld in the recent past might not know him as a person and his contribution to the present enriched Bishnupriya Manipuri world that he has been associated with. It is due to his singular effort that in the fluid Internet world his work still stands like steel. And on this steel, it could be said that the present blocks of Bishnupriya Manipuri internet buildings are firmly based.  Bishnupriya Manipuri Wikipedia Internet minus Wikipedia is stale and insipid. Uttam Singha has been associated with the presence of Bishnupriya Manipuri language in

Entertaining and Nostalgic: Bhubaneswar Sadhuthakur utsav at Bangalore

By Namrata Sinha, Bangalore It’s sure ‘wow’ to the celebration that took place on the occasion of 142nd birthday of the “Holi Bhuwaneswar Sadhu Baba” at Bangalore. Huge round of applause to the organisers who have come to such an extent of delivering immense entertainment and nostalgia to each and every Bishnupriya Manipuries present there. The third year of the utsav was a tremendous success; I would rather say a step ahead from the past two years and hope that it matures in the years to come. Though there was no involvement and participation from my side in the celebration, I could manage myself to witness the grand utsav and I wish many more would have joined it .But nonetheless it was a stupendous achievement. The programme started with the opening speech of Mrs Sheela Sinha who is a versatile personality, I must say, she made the dormant crowd lively and caught the attention of each one of us very effectively. Her command over the languages — be it English or
