Naupang sikul mansaa inthêp donga pai khop chauh a la nih.

Bulthrut rem tak tak ding chun thaw ding a tam èm èm. Ei suotlang hlui, kristien ei ni hmaa ei thu le hla hai khon khawm a, research thaw a, ei histawri fe hmang nia ei hriet leh bel rem dan zong a, histawri ruongâm sunga hlu lût ding a nih. Inhril upat dan ringot zong tum lo a, ei hriet chieng thei po bek siem rêl phot a, chu hnunga research thaw zui pei a, thil thar ei phor suok theihai chu ei hriet chieng thei china thil um leh sui zom pei ding a nih. Chu chu hnam var lemhai thaw dan khom a nih. Entirnan, India rama khawthlang mi, abîkin British-hai an hung laia India mihaiin ei histawri an hriet hlat thei tak chu Mughal lalram hung indintu le a’n zinna chanchin ‘Babur-nama’ ti lekhabua ziektu Babur (1483-1530 AD) kha a nih. Sienkhom, mi thiem hrang hrang an hung lut a, an sui kîr pei a, a hma kum 5000 vela intran Indus Valley Civilisation chen an sui tlung el a nih. Eini khomin ei trobul ei sui ding chun ei hriet phak china thil tlung chanchina inthoka sui peiin, a lu tienga inthoka thrâmin ei sui ve a ngai ding a nih. Chu chu iengtin am thaw tang ei ta?

Hmar History zieka um sun, Hranglien Songate buotsai chu histawri ruongama rem thratpui le a trŭl zuolnahai thol bitpui chu thaw ding hmasa taka ka ngai leiin, chu ding chun L.Rokung leh theitawpin hma kan lakpui a, a zatve nêka tam hiel kan zopui hman a. Sienkhom kan sut hmain ngaidan khuongruol nawna leiin kei chu kan hnukdok a. Chu hma daia inthoka ka lo buoipui tah, nei makmawa ka ngai, Hmarhai thu le hla suina tieng chu ka bawzui a, 1978 khan Nairobi-a inthokin ka ziek zo a, 1980 khan ‘Hmar Hla Suina’ ti hmingin a hung suok a. Tu chen hin hieng tienga lekhabu um sun a la ni el thei. Hmar chanchin ziektu le research thawtuhaiin rawn takah an hmang a, sawl man a um khop el. Suklien le siem thraa sut nawk dingin computer-ah thun vong a ni taa chuh kum iemani zat hi en hman loin a la um hri a nih.

Hmar tronga thu le hlaa ei buripna tak chu hla tieng a ni a, a hnam hmasawnna le ngirhmun inphuin ei intodel thawkhatah ngai inla. Ei inthawtna chu thu ziek tieng a nih. Kum 1970 bawr lai khan Hmar tronga lekhabu tiem ding hang zong inla, a um dĕr naw tluk a nih. Pipu huna ei tienami intrawmhai tiem ding hang zong inla, Lusei trong lekhabua inthok naw chun hmu ding a um nawh. Thusep ziek tiem ding zong inla, a’n khat tawka magazine hung suoka an ziekhai ti naw chu hmu ding a um nawh. An ziek sun khom research-based article hmu ding a um naw hrim hrim bakah kohran mitmeiin a pom tawka hriet khêl an fe ngam nawh. Novel, short story, essay le a dang dang a la um naw tluk a nih. Chu hma thrangkhat liem tah khan mihai chu van sangah rawket-in an lo inzin daih tah a nih.

Thu le hlaa ei ngirhmun pal chu inzak nachang hretu ding chun kut tin hnara lut nuom a um naw thei nawh. Thangtlawma hang lak ngam chi lem chu a ni der nawh. Thangtlawm buoi nêka bulthrut rem tuma thrang lak chu thaw makmaw a ni lem. Pipuhaiin tienami an mi maksanpek bak ei sunzom ding chun umzie le hlutna nei phak, hmasawnna lampui sei tak lo hraw tah hai thaw dan hmang inchuk a ngai. Chu ding chun Saptronga short stories ziektuhai le trong danga ziek, Saptronga an inlethai chu ka hmu thei taphot tiem naw sam ka nei nawh. Somerset Maugham ziek, volume thuma an insuo dam hi ka ching let nasa khop el. British, American, Russian, Indian le British colony hrang hranga mi ziektu ka thlur binghai chu hi artikul tawia hin an hming inchuon seng ni naw nih. Ka hril nuom tak chu, ei thu le hlahai hi ei sukhmasawn tum chun, chu dinga mani inpuocha chu a ngai. A mihriemhai ngaituona le hrietna inthrang si loin thu le hlain hma a sawn thei nawh. Hieng lai hun hin ei cultural & historical background besana hmangin tienami tawi dorzon khat ding lai ka riruong a, paruk ka puitling hman a. Tienami puitling (novel) pahnih ka puitling hman bok a. Thusep tam tak ka ziek a, chuong laia hril hlaw tak chu ‘Beiseina Khamhrui’ ti kha a ni ka ring.

Hienghai baka hin Delhi tlanga inthokin hla 38 ka phuok belsa bok a. Chuonghai laia sak hlaw tak chu ‘Kan tlangram mawi’ (Dar ang lengna) le Zo tlang sangah (Sappui run rem sungah kaia) tihai hi an ni ka ring. Puipung khawmna le hun bi kima sak ding hla ei mamaw a, chu chu phuhruk tuma thrang ka lak bakah hringnun le thilsiem hrilna le chawina hla iemani zat ka phuok bok a. Hi hi ka hung hrilna san chu, sakhaw thil ni lo, thil hrang hrang thawnaah a hun le hmun inrema hla sak ding nei hi a trûl makmaw a, chu chu hnam changkanghai ngirhmun khom a nih. Hlawtling lawmna nikhuoa sin thaw dinga inhnawna hla, ‘Ei vela bu sik ding tam tak a hmin ta a…Fe la, fe la va thaw rawh’ inti ringot el chuh, hlawtlingna petu lawm zawng khom a ni chie ka ring nawh.

Chun, bulthrut remna dinga nuomin nuom naw inla, thil thaw makmaw chu hnam changkang lemhai thu le hla ei tronga inlet a nih. Chu chu hnam tinin mani thu le hla intodelna khop an nei hmaa an thaw seng a nih. A thaw nasa tak khom Saptrong hmangtuhai an nih. Trong tina mi thu le hla thraa an hriethai chu anni trongin an inlet a, an literechar bawmah an thun lut pei a, an thu le hla hausa naw ruol a ni nawh. Entirnan, Homer-in Grik tronga a ziek Iliad & Odyssey dam, Tuscanian-Italian tronga Dante Alighieri ziek Divine Comedy dam, Hebrai trong le Grik tronga ziek Holy Bible dam hi anni tronga an inlet el bakah, khawvel mihriem tam lemin anni tronga inthoka an tiem a ni leiin an ta amanih ei sawn nuom el a nih. Thribea inngai chin, insuk-gospel deuhai lem chun a’n dik le dik naw thlu loin, King James Version (KJV) hi Baibula khom Baibul bikin an ngai tlat chu tie! Chu KJV besana inlet chu Baibul bika ngai pawl an um leiin, Hmar trong kalhmang vawsetu le Hmar trong indik hmang thei ta loa piengsuola mi siemtu ni chieng sien khom ngaina taka kuo lum tut pawl ei la tam. Ei thlarau hi a him chie am? ti chu zawna indon trul loah sie inla, ei ngaituona a pangngai chie am ti ruok chu mani seng ei indon chieng a hun ta khop el.

A ieng ieng khom chu lo ni ta sien, mani ei intodel hma chun hnam dang thu le hla inleta ei literechar sukhausak chu thaw makmaw a nih. Ziektu ropui Rabindranath Tagore thu ziek tam tak laia Bengali tronga a hla phuok chang 157 laia 103 thlang khawm Gitanjali, ama bokin Saptronga an let chu kum 1912 khan sut a ni a, a kum nawk 1913 khan Nobel Prize a hmu pha a, European mi ni lo, Asia rama inthoka Nobel Prize in Literature dong hmasa tak a nih. Hi hla thlang khawm hi College-a mani tronga Vernacular ei nei pha leh ei mamaw ding nia ka hriet leiin Hmar trongin ka lo inlet a, October 29, 1973 khan ka zo a. Ka zuk suikir chun, kum nawk hin kum 40 a tling dêr ding a lo ni tah. ‘Gitanjali’ hi tu chen hin sut loin ka la sie zing a, a san chu ei kristienna hin taksa le thlaraua hrietna tieng eini-ah zung a la kei nghet naw a, tu khom hin kum za kristien inti inla khom, hrietna tieng nautesen ang ei la ni leiin, Sam ziek le Gitanjali hre hrang lo pawl um thei a ni a, chuong mihai thruoi hmang theitu a ni inlauna ka nei lei a nih. Tu hin, Mizoram University chun Mizo tronga inlet sin an tran trĕk trek chauh a nih.
