  8. @anonymous... Mr. (or Miss?) Anonymous of August 18, 2011 5:34 PM, unlike our brethren Kukis and Paites, we the Hmars are not in the habit of robbing others of their tradition, culture, and history. Neither are we in the habit of concocting non-existent history, or claiming other people's history as our own like you people do. We base our history, culture and tradition on genuine sources, evidences and data of our own (not extorted from others). So learn from us but don't take away what is ours. We don't have Khamtang and we will never take it from you. You can have it, it's all yours. We have countless genuine traditional shawls and dresses far better than your one and only shawl, the so called 'Khamtang'. Rest assured we r not like you.

    And regarding history, why can't you guys research on your own, based on YOUR OWN past (not others'). You have no right to borrow our history, findings and terminologies unless you admit that your tribe is one among many tribes, sub-tribes, clans and sub-clans under the umbrella of the HMAR tribe.

    If you need a longer explanation to enlighten you, I am always here to help.

    And why being anonymous when you have the GUTS to give sarcastic comments?

  10. NGOTEKHER: It is a loincloth for Hmar women with black and white stripes in vertical shape. The white stripes occupy greater space than the black. Both the borders are black. Against these vertical stripes, vague black stripes run horizontally at regular space. These horizontal stripes are not supposed to appear prominent. As these horizontal stripes are almost indistinct, the making process requires utmost care and deftness on the part of the weaver. Technically, this design is called kher. Besides this, there are two black very prominent embroidered designs of about 2 inch size each that horizontally divide the Puon into three parts. When worn, wearers take utmost care that anatomy is well placed between these two black embroideries. (Feedback le belsana, most welcome!)
