Tha leh thalo ( 'Mizo'* perspective)


"Mama, inkhawmpui an tiak ta, nanglah phai ramah i awm reng si a, Pathian rawngbawlna hun hi i nei ve meuhlo a ni." ti a ka nu duhtakin min biaklai chu ka thil ziaka ka hmanhlel lai tak a ni. Inkhawmpui zi nuaih nuaih kara zaithiam te, lemchan thiam te, thusawi thiam te mitthla-ah an lo lang, mahse keichu ka hman ve miau silo a! Ngaihtuahna-ah thil pakhat a lolang a. Enge "rawngbawlna chu?" Ka hna ve tur ka zirna chu ka rawngbawlna a ni ve lo em ni?

'Beram' leh 'Kel' thalai te: Tribal khawtlanga seilian ka nih avangin huho a awmkhawm(collectivism) leh mahni a chettlatna (individualism) chungchang hi inhnial a thui thei khawp ang le. Kan duh emaw duhlo emaw Kohhran leh Khawtlang khian khauh takin "fel" leh "fel lo" a thliar hrang a. Chu tehna chu inhman leh inhmanloh a ni. Hei hi thatna tamtak a awm a, chhiatna tamtak a awm bawk. In hmanluat avanga mahni career in vawchhia an awmlaiin inhmang manglo a mihlawhtling an awm leh thung bawk. Leh lmah chuan inhmangpeihlo te'n a inkhawm an sawisel chiam angte hi a dik leh chuang bawk silo a. Ani, kan chhuak vak lutuk ve bawk a, kan hnathawh leh kan zirna kan nitin eizawnna in a tuar lo thei silo.In hmang tha duhlo emaw hmanlohna vanga in hmanglo deuh te'n sawisel se chu "Misual" nih an hlawh tlat, a pawi. Kan lem lutuk a pawi!

Dichotomy :
Kan Zosap te chanchin tha rawn ken khan engtiang chiahin nge kan khawtlangnun leh kohhran nunphung hi a sawi danglam kan hreveklo ang. John Calvin zirtirna hian engtiang chiahin nge Zoram ringtute nun hi a kaihherh pawh chhut tham a ni. Tun a kan hman danah chuan kan nitin khawsakna leh kan biak In (sanctuary) kan dah hran lutuk hi a pawi a ni. Chawlhni a lo ni a, sualna te chu tam hle mahse kan sualna kan hlip a, fel awm takin kan inkhawm a a tha e. Chawlhni ang tho hian nidangah pawh hian Pathian han zah ila zawng corruption do pawl hi a awm ka ringlo. Tha hauhsilo a lemchan kan uar lutuk hi a pawi a ni. Lemchanna hmanrua a kohhran leh khawtlang platform-a kan hmang hi a pawi leh zual. Inthawina nilo in thuawih a ni kan biak a hian a lawm zawk ni.

Hawh u i din thar ang u: Kan Biak In dik tak chu kan thinlung hi a ni kumkhua. Thinlung a zawm silo in pawnlamah a va zawm ngawt hi a theihloh.Thil kan ti a nih rau rau chuan a tawp thleng a kan hlen a ngai a, kan rinawm a ngai a ni. Zirlai chuan a zirna-ah rinawm se, sorkar hnathawk chuan sorkar hna athawhna-ah chutiang zelin. A phawvuak a kan inhampuar lutuk hi thil zum kan tawn hunah kan puakdarh vek palh ang e. I din thar ang... a lem atangin atak ramah..

A tawp berah chuan i hman leh hmanloh hi a thatna leh thatlohna a awm ve ve a, pawimawh ber zawk chu kan thinlunga Lalna chang zawk hi a ni.ENGE I NGAIH VE DAN?

(English-a ka ziak hi min lo hrethiam mai rawh)
I've been meaning to write a post similar to the issues you have addressed. In Mizoram, Christianity has become a superficial facade the corrupt hide behind to conceal their bad deeds. Contributing to the Church and members is noble when it comes from the heart, but when it comes from the mind, to BE someone they are not, that's plain filthy. I wonder how the Church can accept huge donations from people who lead different lives beyond its' confines. Has the church become that desperate? How can it justify funding missionaries with this black money? Doesn't that make us only as ungodly as the people we are trying to convert? What gives us the right to be this self-righteous?
