Some like-minded youth assembled in a room of DM College of
Arts and formed Sahitya Thoupang Lup(SATHOULUP) on the 25th of November, 2003. Several youth
started meeting every month. Those youth were mainly the students studying in Colleges of Manipur. With
the advent of Sahitya Academy Awardee Shri Saratchand Thiyam as an advisor the organisation made a
remarkable progress. Many individuals interested in the objectives of this organisation continued to
sign up. Likewise, under the banner of SATHOULUP, various activities started taking place ceaselessly.
Members started meeting every month at the temporary office in the building of ‘The Poknapham’ which
is located at Keishampat Thiyam Leirak, Imphal. The members tried to consolidate the strength of the
organisation by contributing some monetary subscriptions every month.
With the progression of its various activities, ‘Sahitya Thoupang Lup’ was registered in the year 2011
under the Registrar of Co-operative societies, Government of Manipur. After getting registration number
847 of 2011, many highly commendable activities had also been organised.
