Welcome to Lukhendro Keisham's Blog

Blessed are not the child with silver spoons but with the grace of making it better. Curse are not the one with half meal a day but with the disgrace of making it worse. Success and failure happens to both, we are all the same, only a different package we comes in.

27th Death Anniversary of Keisham Bira Singh

          For the second  consecutive year the public observation of the death anniversary of Keisham Bira Singh was observed on 16th August, 2018 at the residence of the decease at Oinam Mamang Leikai. Earlier in many years the observation of the departure of K. Bira Singh was entrusted to K. Bira Singh Memorial Trust. Apart from observing the death anniversary they also organized state level football, volleyball and kabaddi tournaments every year in memory of the departed here in Oinam. While we the family observes it every year religiously we are recreating the public observation since 2017 again.

          This time it was the 27th Death Anniversary and apart from inviting people only from Oinam we extended the invitation to all the villages of Oinam Assembly Constituency. Due to limited arrangements we stick only to a limited number of guest picking few each from all the villages randomly. They were those whom our father had worked and lived closely with when he was alive. As always it was so fulfilling to see the warm and familiar faces again whom we use to see almost everyday around us.

Prayers by a Meitei Hindu brahmin for the departed soul.
          The day began with a candle lighting ceremony followed by a minute of silence in the name of Keisham Bira Singh. Later the guest spoke about the life and experiences they had with the deceased. It was a congregation of his friends, students, colleague, families and the current youths of Oinam. With prayers by Meitei Hindu priest the day ended with a traditional Meitei feast in which around 200 individuals set down for the meal.

          We from the families of Keisham Bira Singh would like to thank everyone who came and paid their respect to our beloved father. Also the local media personals, relatives, elders, friends and recent youths of Oinam who made the day complete. We are so blessed to have you all.
