July 5, 1997 Saturday, Churachandpur

After morning tea at Jacob’s house at Sielmat, we proceeded to Lalbiekvel’s house at Rengkai Road and thence to Darneimawi’s house, youngest sister of my wife, a nurse who married to Lalneithang, a teacher at Rengkai High School, originally Pant Standard High School where I worked as Headmaster in 1963. Both are Darngawn, the wife a Faiheng, and the husband a Ruolngul and are blessed with one daughter and two sons. Had a sumptuous meal.

After brunch, we headed back to Lalbiekvel’s house. Lots of visitors came to greet us, amongst them Darkamlo Faiheng, composer of two popular love songs (Lalnunnem ka ngai em che & O Di); Damkung, General-in-Chief of Hmar Volunteers’ Force during the 1960 Kuki-Hmar Conflict; Senior Lecturer Raltawnluoi (who had now changed his name as R.Tawna Khawbung) and many others. R.Tawna informed Darkamlo that he had handed over to me Rs. 50/- being a part of Lalnunnem’s marriage price but did not clarify whether it was ‘Panghak’ or something else. Lalnunnem is the eldest daughter of Darkamlo and I gave her name after the title of the popular song composed by her father which also became the title of my short story, a hit for many years in the community and Zoram khawvel.

U Buonsing who could now be about 80-81 also came to greet us. Gave her Rs. 500/- as I used to do from time to time whenever we came to visit Churachandpur. Earlier, I also gave Rs. 1000/- to Darhmangpui for his daughter Hnemi’s admission; Rs. 200/- to Damkung as a token of affection and our long association since 1964 when I was high school headmaster at his village Parbung. I bought his typewriter (Baby Hermes), the first typewriter I ever possessed and it’s this typewriter which produced many songs and short stories including (eventually) my first book Hmar Hla Suina (1980). One day, I visited him at his home in Satthriek Veng in spring time and listened to his Hindi record played in a hand-winded gramophone and one of the songs really transported me back to my childhood days at Pherzawl when we used to listen to Hindi songs from our chief Pu Dolur’s gramophone. I was so captivated by the melody of this nostalgic song that I returned to my place of stay at Rev. Ruma’s house and wrote one of my best compositions, Sakhming Khawvel (Hril a hai dawn kir changin) using the tune of the song. If I were to write the background history of this song I composed at Parbung in 1964, my days with Pu Damkung would figure very prominently.
HPC President Hmingchunghnung and his lieutenant Lalropui also came stealthily to greet us. They had to be careful because of the political movement they had spearheaded in Mizoram which badly spilled over to the neighbouring States especially Manipur, causing unwanted reverberations. They were being under constant watch by the intelligent agencies and were liable to arrest and incarceration without any further provocations. Therefore, I shoved them into the black ambassador car belonging to the Chief Secretary of Manipur which they assigned it for my use to accompany and assist Mizoram Peace Mission. My idea was to sequester the two at Imphal for a few days, talk to them and learn about the status of their struggle and deliberate with them possible peaceful solution without further armed confrontation and mayhem. We talked many things on the way to Imphal.

Having come all the way and spending a hefty sum, it was unfortunate that because of the ethnic conflict, we could stay only two nights at Churachandpur and that too under a siege condition. We stayed abroad continuously for 21-year long on a posting, the longest intermittent posting of an officer in the history of external affairs and we enjoyed the comforts that the world could offer, but we always missed home, our community, our place of birth which we all could legitimately claim and in our deepest soul call, our ‘own’- my home, my land, my country, my people….many mys. And this was our first visit to Manipur after returning to Delhi on posting after more than two decades. And we could stay only two nights in Churachandpur! It’s one of the saddest parts of my experience in life. It’s the inhabitants who turned paradise into hell and hell into paradise. The so-called the ‘The Holy Land’ had, for thousands of years, been turned into a war zone by the glorious children of Abraham and is still riddled with hatred and bullets. Manipur apparently fared no better.

We left Churachandpur at 1315 hours, visited U Khawtinkung at Khawmoi. He was now reduced to a skeleton, suffering from acute stomach pain suspected to be an ulcer turned into cancer. Very painful to see him suffered like this. I knew his end was near. He could still speak in a faint voice as if coming out of a grave. My original plan before coming was to spend at least a week with him to record the history of our family. Being the eldest brother and head of our family, he was the custodian of our family’s history and with his passing our biggest library would be lost forever. I gave him a thousand rupees as a parting gift knowing fully well that this was our last farewell. He thanked me profusely and enquired about the welfare of our four children and blessed all of them. He was running 83 and he knew where he was going after he shed off of his mortal form and entered into an eternal glory. My brother, though not educated by human standards, was a wiseman.

I also visited my brother Kamzabiek, a Pharmacist, at his house to bid him goodbye. He had been a diabetic patient for some time and his condition as well as the family’s was not very encouraging. He told me of a heavy debt incurred from medicines taken on loan from U Rokung, owner of Senvon Drug Store which remained unpaid. I told him not to worry but first to get ten thousand from C.Thant and pay it to U Rokung and I would settle the rest in due time.

Lallawmsang who looked after my eldest brother asked for a small tractor which could be bought by giving Rs. 70,000/- and the rest by installments. The family seemed to be in dire straits for reasons I didn’t know but something definitely went wrong. U Lura seemed to be okay though considered the poorest and the most hardworking amongst the brothers. None of his many sons were matriculates and most of them got married and led independent lives but they all looked happy and satisfied including their wives and children, something absent in the lives of other better-placed and well-fed children of their siblings. Only my bed-ridden eldest sister Dotling mired in poverty and my middle brother U Lura were the two who still retained their innocent smiles. Their faces exuded an aura like Zechariah who came out of the Holy of Holies in the Temple after meeting Gabriel, the messenger of God (Lk 1:22), the face of people who have seen God.
We had no problem on the way to Imphal and hardly came across vehicles on the road as if curfew had been imposed. We reached Imphal as 1530 hours and stayed at Checkon.

Hmingchunghnung shared with us his assessment of the political developments in Mizoram and his intention of returning there as an elected MLA from Suangpuilawn Constituency and even as a Minister. He seemed to be well-informed of the Constituency from where he planned to contest the coming elections in Mizoram but his information appeared one-sided and highly unrealistic as if he did not seem to know the divide of Mizo community on the basis of party affiliations not on ethnic lines. He believed the Opposition could form government in the next elections. I expressed serious doubt about it and told him it might not happen because of split within MNF and PC which would provide a leeway for the Congress to continue in power.
Had dinner with Dari and u Lalngatta at the residence of Dr. Chaltonlien Amo, Minister of State (Medical). He gave us a long briefing on the development works he initiated and implemented in his Tipaimukh constituency including construction of bridge on the Barak River at the Taithu-Patpuihmun crossing. It’s a long and boring monologue on self-pontification which we, in the diplomatic world, normally tried to avoid imposing on our guests.

After returning to Checkon at 2130 hrs, I had a long chat till midnight with Hmingchunghnung and his lieutenant Lalropui. They gave us completely another picture of the activities of Dr. Chaltonlien whom they alleged of trying to build up his position and electoral chance by (a) raising his own underground force even at the cost of national interest; (b) exploiting Lalhmingthang and his group to weaken HPC (D)’s unity and (c) sending some of their men for armed training somewhere in Jowai (Meghalaya) along the Indo-Bangladesh border. It’s a serious allegation worth pondering.

I advised Hmingchunghnung to return to Mizoram to work for the realization of his unfinished tasks as a long absence would work against him. I also told him that he would not succeed by opening two fronts- Mizoram and Manipur fronts. His main worry seemed to be security of his own life.

July 6, 1997 Sunday, Imphal
We continued our discussions on the national politics and the economic situation in Hmar occupied areas. We also talked about the logic of maintaining ‘Hnam Sipai’ which to me was an unnecessary burden than a solution to the national problem, a creation of a Frankenstein monster beyond control. Hnam Sipai killed more of their own than their adversaries.

Remained at home after brunch to receive streams of visitors. At 1230, I left for the airport with Lalngatta, L.R.Infimate, Samuel and others to try if we could get seats for Guwahati. We failed. The scene of the airport was pathetic, smelling of corruption, where only those who bribed the gang could go and the rest even with confirmed tickets did not get seats. They almost beat up the manager who ran away for his life.
We returned from the airport at 1530 hours and went straight to P.L.Thanga’s residence to call P.K.Singson at Gauhati to cancel our booking for Gauhati-Delhi by Rajdhani for which I left Rs. 4000/-. I told him that Khupzalun (L.B.Sinate’s son) would collect the baggage we left behind at his house.

Dinner at Lalngatta’s residence. Their neighbours belonging to Zo-Paite community came to visit us and sat upto 2300 hrs. Our discussions concentrated on Zoram khawvel and not the ongoing Paite-Kuki clash. The mind and spirit of Zoram khawvel do not divide but bind all us together as one.

July 7, 1997 Monday, Imphal
Went to Goodwill Travels with Lalngatta and Daniel and gave them our tickets for Imphal-Guwahati for changing into Imphal-Calcutta and paid Rs. 1620 more for two. After that we went to Presbyterian Bookroom and bought Pherzawl Titi for Rs. 75/-, Mihrang leh Sahrang by A.Thanglura for Rs. 45 and 8 cassettes for Rs. 400 for presents and then went to Doordarshan Office to meet Louis Lalsanghlun Keivom with whom I went to Lamphelpat to preview films he had pains to take on important historically and culturally important sites in Hmar Area. Very nostalgic indeed. He told me that he had spent not less than Rs. 30,000/- from his own pocket for the films, which he hoped to sell it to Doordarshan. It’s a selfless and patriotic venture and one the best ways to preserve and popularize cultural heritage to the outside world.
I came back to Checkon and took rest till 1900 hrs when we left for Lamphel to have dinner at Louis Keivom’s residence. Lalsanghlun is the middle son of my eldest brother Khawtinkung and like Abrahamic days married to the middle daughter of my middle sister Khawkim who all settled in Khawmawi. Returned to Checkon at 2100 hrs.

I rang up P.L.Thanga to enquire about the situation in Churachandpur. He told me that an accord to ceasefire was signed during the day. He further told me that there was armed clash between the Paites and the Kukis at Singat in the morning which left 17 dead, 11 wounded and as many as 80 houses gutted. Most victims belonged to the Paite community. This situation could vitiate the atmosphere charged already with intense hatred and distrust.

July 4, 1997, Friday, Churachandpur

Got up at 5 which, in Churachandpur standard, is neither early nor late as it is atleast 3-4 hours ahead of Delhi though the same Indian standard time is used (IST is also derisively nicknamed by some as Indian stupid time perhaps for the lack of respect shown by VIPs when attending public functions). The distance between Churachandpur and Hanoi (Vietnam) by air is nearer than Churachandpur to Delhi. This being so, it is ridiculous to enforce one standard time zone for the whole of India. USA has four time zones

At 0800 hrs we proceeded to Saidan, visiting on the way, first my immediate brother’s daughter Mina L. Pari whom I named at Tuibuong (she’s the wife of Minlianthang who suffered from serious burnt injuries); my eldest brother U Khawtinkung and my immediate elder brother Kamzabiek at Khawmawi and many other relatives and friends. At Saidan, we visited first my eldest surviving sister U Dotling at her new residence (Thanghrim’s house) and gave her Rs. 1000/- and then U Hrangthatlur’s house where my eldest daughter Margaret Thangmawi was born. The house which had thatched roof in my last visit was now roofed with C.I. Sheets and most of the children, all boys, got married and lived independently. Saidan remained basically as backward as before and the canal dug right across the street remained unutilized, displaying how insensitive and myopic the concerned authorities had been by allowing such a diabolic thing to happen.

Brunch at Khawmawi at U Kamzabiek’s house at 1100 hrs. After meal, we were not allowed to proceed to Churachandpur town as curfew was imposed from 1200 hrs. Fortunately, Minister Chaltonlien’s security convey arrived and we went along with them. This was the first time I met Chaltonlien face to face.

We stopped over at the Police Station where the Peace Committee and Mizoram Peace Mission had a meeting. I greeted them but did not participate at the discussions. In stead I headed right to U Rokung’s house to attend a meeting in my honour organized by the Hmar Arts and Culture Association (a new name of Hmar Cultural Society) of which L. Rokung was the Chairman and R. Tawna Khawbung the Secretary. Inter alia, we discussed about the cultural plot at Rengkai Road/Nehru Marg and its future development.

I requested them to consider 3 things: I was not in favour of dissecting the plot further in order to accommodate HYA’s request to build a hall from Rs. 1 lakh grant it received from DC. I gave the background history of how I had been opposing suggestions from Pu Rokung and others to sell part of the land to build up funds for the construction of a hall. In view of the fact that the plot is a national property and it is physically impossible to acquire such property, they should reconsider their earlier decision to accommodate HYA’s request; (b) We should construct a building along facing Nehru Marg, part of which can be used for a Library-cum-Museum and the rest for renting for shops which would earn regular income to pay the cost of running the Library and the Museum; (c)In order for us to approach the Central government for loans, we should draw up a blueprint of the building by hiring a professional architect who has some knowledge of creating library and museum facilities.

Later, Minister Chaltonlien joined us for a meal and we broke up at 1530 hours. From there I proceeded to Inspection Bungalow with Chatonlien to meet Mizoram Peace Mission. Only Pu Lawmkima was there when we arrived- Pu Chawngkunga and Zathruama having gone to the Police Station to sort out distribution of 2 truck-load of rice they brought with them as a token gift to victims of the ethnic clash. We therefore went down to join them at the Police Station but met them on the way at the start of the Tiddim Road and stopped them. Argument ensued as to how to distribute the rice as some group was objecting to the formula worked out before- to give one truck each to the Kukis and the Paites.

As such, we headed back to the Police Station and discussed the issue. Pu Zathruama was arguing about the wisdom of the formula worked out earlier as the number of refugees greatly varied. I also spoke, first saying that we should not go against the formula as equal distribution to the satisfaction of all was impossible, something even God could not do. Besides, the rice brought by Mizoram Peace Mission was a token gift and not a relief measure which should have been done by the Manipur Government and therefore we should not insist on how they distribute the rice. Pu Selkai Hranghcal and Pu Lawmkima also spoke in favour of the formula. Ultimately, it was decided to distribute the rice as earlier decided.

After this, Pu Chawngkunga reguested me to accompany him to visit the refugee camps. We first visited CRP/BSF Camp where 2710 Kuki refugees were being housed in makeshift tents. The inmates were mostly from Phailian and Bungmual villages. One of the inmates we met was a Jew with kippa on his head. Pu Chawngkunga interviewed him along with some other refugees.

From there, we visited three Paite refugee camps- (a) at Tiddim Road’s Convention Church compound adjacent to Lamka College; (b) at near football ground at the compound of Evangelical Convention; and (c) at Lower Lamka opposite the cemetery. I met a few Saikul victims at the second camp, two of them migrated from Saidan who knew me well. Most inmates in this camp were from Saikul, Tuithrapi and the suburbs of Churachandpur. It was doubtful all the inmates were direct victims of the ethnic clash.

At dusk, we reached the house of C.Thant (Lala Khobung’s younger brother) who killed a pig in my honour. We invited Mizoram Peace Mission Team and a few friend and they all came, including Pu Selkai Hrangchal who arrived dead drunk but did not make any nuisance as he slept through the meal in his seat.

At 8 pm we headed for Sielmat. The road was empty and silence reigned supreme because of curfew. Slept at Dr. Jacob Pudaite’s house. Thang Dailo and his wife Lalthrazo also joined us. Jacob and Zingi looked after us marvelously well. Jacob told me of his plan to come down to Delhi to head their Delhi Office and stay at Rochunga Pudaite’s flat at Delhi Police Apartment in Mayur Vihar One, a two-room partment he bought it from Pu Lalduhawma, an IPC officer turned politician for about Rs. 7 lakh. We were happy to hear of the plan as they were going to be our neighbor- our flat at Purvasha being a few blocks from Rochunga’s flat.

It’s a hectic day, a day worth remembering.

July 1, 1997 Tuesday, Imphal

Pu Haokholal Thangjom, former Cabinet Minister in the Manipur Government and a seasoned and respected tribal leader accompanied by Pu Laltawna came to visit me in the morning and had many interesting discussions on Zoram khawvel politics. I gave him a copy of my 370-page latest book Zoram Khawvel-4 which was released at Hotel Ritz in Aizawl on May 29, 1997, perhaps the only book so far in Mizo dealing exclusively on the theories and manifestations of national identity and nationalism in contemporary world with special reference to the people of Zoram khawvel.

After brunch, went to meet Pu Kaihao, Accountant General at his office accompanied by Pu Doruma. Phoned Lalzar B. Sinate. Also tried to reach M.C.Lalrinthanga and V.L.Zaikima, publisher and printer of Zoram Khawvel serials at Aizawl as also Lala Khobung, ADM (J) but were all out of reach and left message.

From Pu Kaihao’s office, I proceeded to the Presbyterian Centre at Deulahland, met Rev. Chawnghranga in charge of the Centre, bought one copy each of Zoram Khawvel 1 & 3 and Pherzawl Titi for Rs. 205/- and returned to Checkon.

Rev. Chawnghranga told me that they were going to receive a goodwill delegation from Mizoram who were expected to arrive at around 3.30-4 pm. The delegation was sent by Chief Minister Lalthanhawla with two truck load of rice. It was led by by Hon. Chawngkunga, Minister of Agriculture and Department of Arts and Culture accompanied by Francis Lawmkima (Kuki MLA) and Zathruama (Paite MLA). Their mission was to try to find out a peaceful solution to the Kuki-Paite conflict in Churachandpur.

Later I heard that they could not be able to reach Imphal as the CRP convoy was ambushed at Khopum allegedly by the armed Nagas and had to stop over for a night at Noney (Naw-ne), the biggest Rongmei Naga town on Jiribam Road, 64 kms or 40 miles from Imphal (Perhaps a diversionary tactics by the Nagas, indirectly reminding them of the danger of their mission? One never knows. Nothing can be ruled out in the game of political manoeuvres).

Dinner at our place of stay at Checkon organized by Mawizuol, Enga of Saidan and Joseph (U Kamzabiek’s son). We sang animatedly with guitar some choicest romantic and melodious songs composed in the 60s and 70s including some of my compositions and had a good time. The ‘uisa’ preparation was one of the tastiest I had ever eaten since my arrival in the north-east. The ‘west’ shudders and the ‘east’ cackles at the mention of ‘uisa’ and the twain shall never meet on this palatable site. Let the world remain forever divide on this account: the knows and the knows-not, uisa-eating paradise and uisa-less hell.

July 2, 1997 Wednesday, Imphal

Got up late. After brunch I went out with U Lalngatta to SBI to encash $ 300 worth of Traveler’s Cheque amounting to Rs.10605 at the current rate of exchange of Rs.35.35 per dollar and then went to a travel agent to book two tickets for Imphal-Gauhati flight for Sunday July 6 but on waiting list of 120 over. From there, we went to Shaiza’s house but he was not there. We then headed for the airport to meet him. He was not there either. Having come so far, the prospect of going back to Delhi without visiting friends and relatives at Churachandpur was really painful.

It was the first day of Manipur Budget Session and the security arrangements around the Assembly House beat all measures: lines of armed policemen and policewomen closely fenced the area as if a full-scale war was going on. Who had created this kind of situation and who was responsible for it? If politicians could not face their people without full security cover, then what was the point of their being in politics? It’s a sight worth seeing and meditating. Gone were our days in D.M.College in the early 1960s when life was simple and peaceful, no gun-toting creatures were seen and known, the Imphal air was fresh and sweet and communal tension was unheard of.

Came back to Checkon at 3 pm. Shortly after, I received a call to inform me that Mizoram Peace Mission led by Minister Chawngkunga had arrived in Imphal and were put up at Hotel Imphal (Ashok). Immediately I rang up Francis Lawmkima (with whom I studied history at Gauhati University in 1964-66) and then rushed to the hotel where I met all of them and briefed of the situation.

Pu Chawngkunga told me several things, right and wrong. Seemed he had good memories but suffering heavily from Tualte Vanglai Syndrome (TVS). He said he got more than Rs. 4 lakh in advance for the Mizo Geneology he compiled sometime ago which, most of it, were lifted strait from other publications without giving them the required acknowledgement or credit which courtesy demanded he should so that in the process his book would gain credibility and acceptance. He was an interesting character: nationalistic, lively, kicking and sharp but naïve. I wished he was a little more educated and informed. He could be an useful national asset to further Zoram khawvel movement.

The Peace Mission had a meeting with some local leaders of Churachandpur including Holkhomang and Selkai Hrangchal. They invited me to participate at the meeting but I declined. It was interesting to watch how the Paites were trying to sequester Zathruama as if he was their spokeman. I told the leader of the delegation the composition of his team was wrong. It should have been better if no Paite or Kuki was included. They said that it was a preliminary attempt and they would be more careful in the next visit. I told them there might not be a second visit if the first was a failure.

The delegation was to meet Chief Minister Rishang Keishing in the evening for a courtesy call. Nobody seemed to have coordinated their programme. I did not meet them again in the evening.

Mr. Kaihao Vaiphei, A.G rang up to tell that the intelligence report of the day indicated a possibility of a clash between Manipuris and Nagas for the former to have leanings on the Kuki side. Manipur ethnic cauldron is a powder-keg potentially dangerous as it could explode any moment at the drop of a hat.

Mizo AIR programme reported 13 dead and 17 injured because of Kuki-Paite clash on the day.

July 3, 1997 Thursday, Imphal

Got up early. Decided to proceed to Churachandpur in response to the special request of0 Pu Chawngkunga that my wife and I accompany the Peace Mission Team to Churachandpur. Car came to pick us up at 0930 hours and we proceeded to Hotel Imphal (Ashoka). We travelled in the Minister’s car with a big escort in front and behind. The Minister entertained us with all kinds of hilarious Mizo anecdotes and wisecracks. When we were passing through Bishenpur he said unexpectedly, “Let’s sing ‘Ri hok hokin’” (Ri hok hokin kha han sa ila). I was pleasantly surprised and asked him where and when did he learn and whether he knew the lyrics. He told me that he was once invited by the Hmar Students’ Association as Chief Guest and they sang this song and immediately fell in love with it. It’s the song I composed in Delhi in early 1970s known under the title ‘Kan tlangram mawi’ or ‘Dar ang lengna’ and the Minister could recite the whole song as eloquent as he did The Lord’s Prayer. So we sang with wild abandon clapping hands and forgetting for a moment the Kuki-Paite conflict.

Reached Churachandpur at 1230 hours and proceeded straight to Inspection Bungalow. Attended the first meeting chaired by Pu Zathruama MLA who could speak Hmar, Paite and Mizo-Lusei fluently. He gave a brief introduction and explanation of the purpose of their mission. Then the Minister took the floor followed by Francis Lawmkima. The Chairman called several speakers, mostly from the Paite community and only one each from Kuki and Gangte representatives and Peace Committee Chairman Rev. Darsanglien Ruolngul spoke. It’s a one-sided affair hijacked by one community.

I left the meeting at 2 pm, went to U Rokung’s house and from there to Lalbiekvel Fimate’s house at Rengkai Road where I had to stay for the night. After awhile, we went out on foot to visit our immediate relatives and friends in Rengkai and Nehru Marg, the latter place being our permanent address while in service. Bieka is married to Lalthienghlim, the daughter of my eldest brother Khawtinkung, now in Khawmawi.

Because of the curfew, we could not go out anywhere. My nephew Edward Thangchunghnung Hrangate whom I gave his name somehow managed to visit us and stayed till 10 pm which in Churachandpur standard is quite late as most people eat dinner during daylight and go to bed at dusk. There was an eerie silence and even street dogs did not bark perhaps sensing the lurking danger. The stillness was broken for sometime at 8.30 pm by the sound of gunfire from the southern side.

When everything falls apart

When you have a broken heart
Raise your hands and say
Lord, you're all I need
You're everything to me
And he'll take the pain away
When it seems you're all alone
Praise his name
And when you feel you can’t go on
Raise your hands and say
Greater is he that is within me
And you can praise the hurt away
If you'll just praise his name

Pathienin mal mi sawmpek raw seh.
