  1. Lai Siangtho (Tedim Kam) Neihna Thu

Leitung ah Lai Siangtho a bupin a nei khinte lakah ei Zomite zong kihel i hih manin Pasian’ thupha lianpi ahi hi.

Sangmang Cope topa’ hanciamna tawh 1932 kumin Thuciam Thak i nei hi. Rev. Kam Khaw Thang in TBA vaihawmna tawh 1960 beikuan lam pan Thuciam Lui letkhiat kipan a, 1974 kumin zo hi. Tua Thuciam Lui leh a omsa Thuciam Thak (Cope Topa’ letkhiat) gawmin a kibubawl pen 1977 kumin a laibu kingah ahih manin tua kum pen Lai Siangtho bup i neih masak kum hong suak hi.

Nasep kizomto suakin Rev. Kam Khaw Thang mah in Thuciam Thak letkhia leuleu a, 1982 kumin zo-in 1983 kumin a laibu hong suakkhia hi. Tua hi a, tua kumin tualsung mite’ letkhiat Lai Siangtho bup a kinei ta ahi hi. Tua nungah TBA in Zomi Christian Literature Society (ZCLS) tungah Lai Siangtho nasepna maban ap hi. ZCLS in zong Lai Siangtho enphatna nei toto-in a hun zui-in hong bubawl zelzel hi. Tu-in zong khanghun paizia en kawmin khangthakte’ phattuam ding deihsakna tawh Lai Siangtho a thak khat letkhiat ding geelna nei a, 2018 April panin letkhiat nasep maban thak khat a kipan ahi hi.

Lai Siangtho (Tedim kam) vai genna ah a tunga nambat khatna-a i gen, kam tuamtuam tawh letkhiatna leh thuluanzia a tuamtuamin letkhiatna, cih letkhiatna nam nih mah bulphuhin i genbeh ding hi.

  • Tedim kam kipsakna

I minam sung Lai Siangtho letkhiatbu i neih masak pen ah Tedim kam a kizatna pen a nuai-a thute tawh kizom hi.

Cope topa in Tedim gam (tu hun Tedim leh Tonzang gamte) ah lai (script/writing) hong phuatsak ding ciangin bang kam bulphuh ding cih ngaihsut masakin nei hi. Sihzang kam kitamzatpen kici ahih manin Sihzanng kam sin pah hi. Zolai a gelh masakte zong Sihzang kam tawh gelh hi. Ahih hangin Sihzang kam kithei kim lo ahihlam a theih ciangin Tedim kam sin leuleu a, laibu pawlkhat zong Tedim kam tawh gelh hi.

Lai a kip khat a om ding deih ahih manin 1913 kumin Kamhau Ukpi Pu Hau Cin Khup’ kiangah, “Na zat ding uh lai kong bawlsak ding hi. Tua ahih manin bang kampau zang leng hoih na sapen hiam?” ci-in dong hi. Teizang kam a zang Pu Hau Cin Khup in, “Mipite’ deihpenpen hilo dia” ci-in dawng hi. (Cope Topa’ Tangthu, laimai 73 pan).

Tua tawh kizui-in Cope topa in 1919 kumin Tedim gam leilulam ukpi siahkai khempeuh leh upa pawlkhat banah Sihzang kual, Gungal kual, Tonzang kual leh Guite kual sungpan khua khat panin mi khatta kaikhawmin Tedim khua ah thu kikupna khat bawlpih hi. Kikupna mun pen tu hun Tedim vuandok zum (General Administration Department) mai, pangpi kung (tu-in kiphuk khin) nuai, kici hi.

Tua kikupna ah Cope topa in Sihzang kam tawh kigelh, siktawlai tawh kikhen, laidalpi dal 20 bang a pha, “Hat Lian Bu” (Jack the Giant Killer) kici tangthu khat simkhia hi. Kuamah in a telloh ciangin Cope topa in, “Tua ahihleh bang kampau tawh lai bawl ding i hi hiam?” ci-in dong hi. Tua ciangin kikupna ah a kihelte in a nuai-a bangin ngaihsutna pulak tek uhhi:

  1. Guite kual taangmite’ thusunna: Paihte kam a zang, Tuimui hausa Pu Mang Za Thang in, “Paihte kam tawh bawl lehang kuamah in thei lo ding hi. Tedim khuapi-a kizang kampau tawh bawl lehang kitelkimpen ding hi” ci hi. Paihte kam a zang, Haiciin hausa Pu Tual Pum in thukimpih pah hi.
  2. Thahdo kual taangmite’ thusunna: Thahdo kam a zang, Hiangzang hausa Pu Zam Khaw Thang in, “Ko Thahdo kam tawh omleh kuamah’n thei lo ding hi. Tedim khuapi-a kizang kampau-in omleh hoihpen ding hi” ci hi. Thahdo kam a zang, Hangken hausa Pu Kam Pum in thukimpih pah hi.
  3. Zo kual taangmite’ thusunna:  Zo kam a zang, Salzang hausa Pu Zaang Khaw Lian in zong, “Ko Zote’ kam kuamah’n tel lo ding hi. Tedim khua-a kizang kampau mah hileh kitelkimpen ding hi” ci a, Zo kam a zang Phaitu hausapa Pu Khan Thawng in thukimpih leuleu hi.

Tu-a bangin hausa lian 6te’ genna leh upa a pai khempeuhte’ thukimpihna a om ciangin Cope topa in mipite’ ngaihsutna dong hi. Mipi lungkim ahih manin Cope topa in Tedim gamsung laigelhna ah zattang dingin Tedim khuapi-a kizang Tedim kam kipsak hi. Tua kum October kha-a kipan Tedim kam tawh “Tedim Thu Kizakna Lai” (The Chin Hills News) suaksak a, biakna laite leh laisimbu a bawl khempeuh zong Tedim kam vive tawh bawl hi. Tuate lakah Lai Siangtho zong a kihel pah ahi hi.

Tua huna Tedim gam i cih pen zai mahmah hi. Tonzang gam leh Cikha dong huam hi. A nungciangin Tonzang in township (1965?) hong ngah a, township nih a nei i hih manin i minam bup lungdamna ahi hi. Cikha leh Khaikam in zong town ngah uh ahih manin i gam sung khantoh gimnam mahmah hi.

Nidanga Tedim gam a kici, hih township 2 leh town 2 a omna gam sungah hun khat lai-in laisinna sangte ah kampau khat a sinkhawmte, kampau khat tawh Lai Siangtho a simkhawmte i hi hi. Tua hangin zong hih khua leh gam teng i gen ciangin khatveivei “Tedim gam” kici ziauziau kha thei hi. Tua pen kumpi’ hong piak thak township leh town-te thusimlohna hi peuhmah lo-in hun khat lai-in gam khat hi lua i hih manin i lungsim sungah kituam ngaihsut thei mahmahlo i hih man hi. Thukhat ah, tua banga i lawh teh Tedim bek thupisak (ki-Tedim-sak) ci-in a sangkhial zong om thei ding ahih manin khang thak gamvai kipuakzia zui-in min thakte tawh lawh theih ding zong a thupi khat hi veve hi.

A langkhat leuleu ah, hun khat lai-in “Tedim” cih pen khua min bek hilo a, tua min tawh i minam leh i gam hong kilo ahihlam khang thakte in i theih i phawk ding kisam hi. Zomite minam khat, gam khat-a hong kiciaptehcilna min pen “Tedim” hi. Tua hi a, tu hunin i kilawhna i gam minte a tuamtuam hi phial taleh minam khat, gam khat i hihna thute mangngilh lo-in i kipumkhatna i khahsuah loh ding i lunggulhpipen ahi hi.

  • Thuluan letkhiatbu a thak

Lai letkhiatna ah “ahi bang liana lakna” (literal) leh “a kituak dinga lepna” (dynamic) ci-in nampi nih om cih i gen khin hi. A nam nihin hoih tuak ahihna leh a zat-huaina mun tek om ahihlam zong i gen khin hi. Lai Siangtho letkhiatna ah nam khat bek a tuamin zang cihdan tam lo-in nam nih gawmin khatzawzaw lamah lek deuh cihdanin kizang a, khatlekhat a lekzawkna zah kikim lo, cih ciang bek ahi hi.

Tu-a i neih, tu laitak-a i zat Tedim kam Lai Siangtho pen a nihna nam tawh kigelh ahi hi. Thuciam Lui 1974 kumin kizo hi a, Thuciam Thak 1982 kumin kizo hi. A simdan nuamin a khiatna zong kitel mahmah a, i minam bupin i phattuampih Lai Siangtho letkhiatbu a hoih mahmah khat ahi hi.

Tua ahih manin hih bang Lai Siangtho hoih hong pia i biak Pasian’ min i phat hi. Tua banah 1960 kumbei lama kipan nasep hong kipan, i pa ahi Rev. Dr. Kam Khaw Thang tungah ahi zongin, Lai Siangtho nasepna ah inntek a sem masa TBA tungah ahi zongin, a nung lam ciang inntek maban hong lato ZCLS tungah ahi zongin nakpi-in i lungdam hi.

Lai Siangtho a hoih mahmah khat hong pia khin Pasian in hoihna kicing i muh semsem nadingin hong makaih leuleu hi. Tu-a i neih pen “a kituak dinga kilem nam” (dynamic) ahih manin “ahi bang liana kila nam” (liternal) zong i neih lai ding kisam cih makaite na phawksak hi. Tua hangin ZCLS in inntek semsuakin UBS leh BSM’ vaihawmpihna tawh Lai Siangtho letkhiatbu a thak khat a kisep laitak ahi hi.

Hih letkhiatbu a thak hong kizawh ciangin i minam sungah Lai Siangtho letkhiatbu a nam nihin a nei i hiding a, a mannei theipenin i zat ding ahi hi. A kituak dinga kilemsa i deih ciangin a lui i en ding a, ahi bang liana lak ding i kisap ciangin a thak i sim ding hi. Innkuan tek leh pawlpi tek ah a nam nihin i koih ding a, a nihin simkhawm enkakin tha i la ding hi. Biakinn sung leh mipilak simkhiatna ah a lui mah zang phot ni i cihleh zatding hi pah a, a thak zong zat zelzelhuai sam ee i cihleh zong ahithei thu mah ahi hi.
