  1. Would like to believe that the cabinet reshuffle happened in the right time and we can be hopeful from Mr. Manish Tiwari.

    Also, a news that two apex bodies of the society joined hands for a common goal. Great example, hoping to see others taking cue out of it in variety of initiatives.

    Thanks to the delegation along with Bramhananda da who's not in the frame.
    Lot of us may not recognize the importance of DD and AIR especially with all the private players in place. But for us BMs, this could be a saving grace and major confidence booster in cultural preservation and promotional activities that is happening across the board, for its people and to the world around. Would like to keep getting updates on this.

    Thanks
    Prabal

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

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. Sadhu Baba from his childhood was indifferent to all worldly happenings. He was engrossed in chanting the name of Lord Krishna.
