Manipur CM lambasted mentioning Krishna-Rukmini

https://youtu.be/C0z-DFXknNM

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, Sanamahi. It is Hudsonian reaction, and NOT Meitei as a jati reaction.

Their reactions were correct and valid in accordance with their perspective on ‘HISTORY’.

What is Pangal/ Christian ideas on ‘History’?

Pangal and Christians DON’T have ‘pavitra’ concept. They have ‘holy’ concept. [Don’t equate ‘Pavitra’ and ‘Holy’] So, according to their framework and their take on ‘history’ Bhagwan Krishna doesn’t fit in, so do the pavitra bhumi. Extend the same logic further to Manipur. So, they basically don’t adhere to the Bhagwan Krishna taking birth on this earth and having social relationship with the land Manipur is surely objectionable.

For a Hindu, Bhagwan Krishna, avtar, Manipur, pavitra bhumi, goes correct.

For a Pangal / Christian, minus Hinduness is Manipur’s history. Minus ‘sacredness’ is Manipur’s history. Minus ‘pavitrata’ is Manipur’s history.

We know Pangal and Christian idea on History. Not an issue. We know their ideas, framework, models etc.

What is Sanamahi (Hudsonian) ideas on ‘history’? This is a latest idea. First, who are Sanamahi? Read thrice: Hinduism came to Manipur in 18th century. One Brahmin converted our king. He forcefully converted the populace. We had an ‘idea’ before Hinduism. Hinduism was oppressive.

If you believe this. You are Sanamahi. You cannot question it. Who gave this idea: TC Hudson and his subsequent lineage.

Therefore such reactions are called Hudsonian Reaction. Reason, Hudson too failed to understand Meitei Hindu jati/ Hinduism in 1900s. In 2018, the proponents of Hudson too failing to understand Bhagwan Krishna/ Hinduism in Manipur.

Why there has not been any reaction on Ras Leela? Despite connection with Bhagwan Krishna. CM mentioned about it. Reason: It is ‘CULTURAL’ stuff. Any sanskritik product minus Hinduness, is ‘CULTURE’.

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
