English Translation by Kapil Arambam**

In a simple gathering here,  two books — a collection of short stories, ‘Circus’, written by Thokchom Manihar and a poetry anthology, ‘Bangladesh Ki Akhannaba Manipuri Sheireng’, edited by Hamom Pramud — have been released under the aegis of the Ashangba Communication, based in  Imphal, Manipur. In the function, Nameirakpam  Ananta K. Singha, the founder of N Gopi Foundation and Dr. Budhchandra S Khundrakpam  also grace the function as the chief guest and the guest of honour respectively .

In the welcoming address, the Montreal-based Manipuri fashion designer, Bidyutparna  Lourembam  says the two authors have published several works elsewhere, but this is the first time that the Manipuri books have been published in this city. Bidyutparna adds, “Despite the hardship that we face outside our state, it takes a lot of courage to publish such kinds of books. Besides, this kind of effort also clearly shows, apart from the two writers’ attempt to add flavors to enrich our culture, their true love for our own language.”

Sorensangbam Ongbi Surja Rani, on behalf of the Manipuris in Montreal, also expresses her gratitude to the writers. The Manipuri Diaspora asserted the love for Manipur goes beyond any national boundary and physical distance. She also cited the writers are the reason why there is always a way a person can contribute for Manipur and that nothing can spoil the spirit of the Manipuris.

Nameirakpam Ananta Singha, while speaking at length about the function, says it is of great pride that there are writers in a place where there are only a few Manipuris. Dr. Budhachandra narrates the abstract of the books and expresses his heartfelt gratitude to attend such a function, far away from home. He also stresses that the younger generation will gain a lot from these books. A special refreshment comprising Manipuri foods follows the gathering. The programme ends with a short reading session by the two authors.
