Manipur CM lambasted mentioning Krishna-Rukmini Watch Chief Minister N Biren Singh bhashan at Madhavpura Fair in Gujarat He mentioned Bhagwan Krishna marriage with Rukmini and Raas Leela troupe from Manipur to showcase the sanskritik unity of Bharat with Manipur. His message was not well taken by student bodies, buddhijivi (intellectuals), and political parties in Manipur. There is no mention of Meitei Hindu student body in news report, what has been their reaction on it. [Blame Google.] They all had the same message in different wordings that: it is an attempt to deform and distort history. Let us apply the dharmic understanding. Manipur’s CM bhashan is 100 % correct. Who were listening his bhashan? Hindus in Gujarat. All Hindus have this bio/ civilisational memory of Bhagwan Krishna, Rukmini, Manipur, Arjuna, Chintragandha…So telling 80% Hindus the story is distorted and not correct. Hmmm! Basically such reaction comes from 3 quarters from Manipur: Pangal, Christians, Sana

Meiteis Vs Bishnupriya Manipuri (2018)

With the traditional dhristi, these two jatis have these similarities definitely with some ‘Notes’. Certainly, avoided western lens/ framework, models etc. Similarities: # Meiteis (Hindus) and Bishnupriya Manipuri are Sanatan Dharmi. # Ras Leela is performed with bhakti and shradha both by Meiteis (Hindus) and Bishnupriya Manipuri # Cuisine (ex: Irolpa/ Iromba) same both for Meiteis & Bishnupriya Manipuri # Paramparik dress is same both for Meiteis & Bishnupriya Manipuris # Paramparik architectural design of house and its surroundings same.  # Apoka puja is performed with bhakti and shraddha both by Meiteis & Bishnupriya Manipuris Note: For Bishnupriya Manipuris, Apokpa comes under Hindu cosmology. For Meiteis (Sanamahi), Apokpa comes under Sanamahi cosmology (Hudsonian version). Why Hudsonian version? Simply we don’t know. It is like someone reads Orientalism 1.0 (European version) and 2.0 (American version) and writes commentary on Hinduism
