Letter of Greetings to all the Nagas from forgotten offspring

Sir,

The world has become a global village and with times every university has started encouraging young scholars to study the ways of our immediate neighbours or bring back the lost brothers, or anything related with our history and culture, to make this world a place better place to live. As I decided to go for my further studies, I sat myself before the Departmental Board for my final interview in the prestigious Bhamo University, Myanmar. By the grace of God I was selected and my guiding professor ask me to do a special research work in India.

Declining an offer from one of the best Universities of a country for the country and above all my earnest desire to be in a land where my grandfather belongs was time taking decision, as I will be facing a lots of criticism if I try to intrude into someone political situation where those targeted people were so convenient with the system by now. Yet I ponder myself to make my last call to say YES and go to the place where my grandfather belongs to but never returns. The land my fore-fathers have accepted thousands of years ago to rightfully claim as theirs. A land I have never seen but have always heard from my father & grandmother and read about thousand times from the paper, books, journals etc. but all through internet.

The little I knew about my grandfather from my grandmother and my villagers – A young soldier on a trip to China with a General called Mou, someone my grandmother has never seen but timelessly mentioned that he was a Godly figure to my grandfather and his troupes, they were ambushed by the heavily armed Burmese armies, many were killed, many injured, some gathered back and continue with their mission, yet many lost their way and my grandfather is among the last category. My grandfather could never return to his Home as his right leg was no more, but with times he met my grandmother, a widower, and made her home, a Home far away from Home. He found solace in my grandmother’s abode but unfortunately he succumbed to his long due injuries after the birth of my dad, Tukhemi Asah (named after a legendary spear maker, both Chin & Sema having the same pronunciation and storylines) & his sister, Avetoli Asah (Asah my grandmother’s clan), before he could completely learn Chin language to share his life journey, native place, near & dear ones, his reason for taking arms, and above all the real man as to who he is/was, but with him all his wonderful stories were taken away. Villagers always say that he was cheerful young chap with a King Midas touch in every work. Grandmother says that on one dark cloudy morning two badly injured men resurfaced from below the village pond, the older looking man was carrying the younger one on his back though he was more badly injured. Villagers gathered around them and gave them immediate shelter even thought they cannot communicate at all. And with times the young man condition gets better but sadly the older one, a man my grandfather always addresses as Sir, the man who was with my grandfather as a trainer, group leader, rescuer, carrier, doctor, everything in his hardest times passed away due to infection. Giving away his life selflessly for his promising junior who could not see the glorious moment of his nation.

I’m excited, as in few weeks times, I’ll be in the land I always dreamt off, looking for my grandfather families and his god-father’s families yet equally nervous as I doubt if I knew their real name and their real spelling. MUGHATO SEMA was my grandfather’s name and my grandfather savior’s name was POU, as pronounced by my villagers. Finding someone by just a name called Pou can be a big challenge, as I believed there is already a tribe name by that three syllable but I have a ray of hope because my grandmother always say that my grandfather always regarded Pou’s tribe to be the eldest & and the purest among all the Nagas and he happens to be the eldest son of a big village King. (And here, I honestly do not know what does it meant by the word PUREST but my grandmother always insist me to use the term in respect to my grandfather words.)

The word Naga and Nagaland has become something like a hallucination to me after I decided to critically examine the similarities between the Sema Naga tribe and the Chin of Myanmar. But first of all I need to trace the families of the two most important people of my life, who encouraged me to take up this big challenge where majority of the promising students would dare too even think off, for two reason:
1. Chin state of Myanmar and Nagaland state of India is very far away practically in all terms even though the distance between two is much nearer than our respective country capital. But I dare to as I need to know my roots.
2. Trying to bring back alive a history long forgotten is always faced by a strong criticism from every angle, when such a community is well established and settled conveniently with the neighboring community. But I dare to as I was brought up in a place strongly believed to be my ancestral land yet my immediate great-grandfathers have never seen it. But fortunately, fate gave me the privilege to let me be born & brought up in that wonderful land so now it is my responsibilities to bring a connection between the two land. And truth shall always reign.

My paper is to study the similarities between the Sema tribe and the Chin. There are thousands of similarities between the two tribes like – the culture, tradition, village administration, political reasoning, kingship, facial structure, dance & festivals, language phonetics, even names, and many more. According to the oral history as per the narrations and comparisons of many scholarly works of both the tribes, many Chin scholars and historian believes that Sema are the lost clan of the Chins. If it is wrong than let us reason out together and proof it as wrong, or if it is true at all than let us embraced the fact as it has nothing to do with our present political issues as we are far away and every human race has their own story to tell. And the bottom-line is – truth can be never hidden away.

Brief history of the Chin: The Tibeto-Burman Chin peoples entered the Chin Hills some time in the first millennium AD, as part of the wider migration of Tibeto-Burman peoples into the area. Some historians speculate that the ‘Thet’ people mentioned in the Burmese Chronicles might be the Chins. For much of history, sparsely populated Chin Hills was ruled by local chiefs. Political organization in the region prior to the Toungoo dynasty’s conquest in mid-16th century remains largely conjectural. The first recorded instance of a western kingdom believed to be near the Chin Hills is the Kingdom of Pateikkaya in the 11th and 12th centuries. Some historians (Arthur Phayre, Tun Nyein) put Pateikkaya in eastern Bengal, thus placing the entire Chin Hills under Pagan suzerainty but others like Harvey, citing stone inscriptions, put it near eastern Chin Hills. (Burmese Chronicles report the kings of Pateikkaya as Indian though the ethnicity of the subjects is not explicitly cited.)

The first confirmed political entity in the region was the Shan State of Kale (Kalay), founded by the Shan people who came to dominate the entire northwestern to eastern arc of Burma after the fall of Kingdom in 1287. Kale was a minor Shan state, and its authority did not extend more than its immediate surrounding area, no more than a small portion of northern Chin Hills. The minor state occasionally paid tribute to the larger Shan States of Mohnyin and Mogaung, and ultimately became a vassal state of Burmese Ava Kingdom in the 1370s. Starting in the 1480s, Ava began to disintegrate, and Kale was swallowed up by the Shan State of Mohnyin by the 1520s.

The entire Chin Hills came under the authority of Burmese kingdoms between 1555 and 1559 when King Bayinnaung of Toungoo Dynasty conquered all of Upper Burma and its surrounding regions—stretching from the eastern and northern Shan states to the western Chin Hills and Manipur followed by the king tyranny. During this era, Nikhoga Chief of Sumito Asah clan in the Chin hills revolted against the Shan ruler by grabbing the land of the royals and its officials (Sumito clan is believed to be present Sema Naga tribe of Nagaland), they were known for treachery worthless oaths, the angered King tried to killed all the Sumito Asah clan but they escaped with the help of the Lia clan. Lia was a big clan but the consequences for helping the Sumito clan to escaped from the wrath of the Shan king lead to mass killing of the Lia clan every year, asking the Lia to bring back the lost clan of the Chin so that he may give a befitting lesson but they could not, Sumito chief always says ok to his proposal but the truth is they have decided never to returned to its ancestral land fearing of the repercussion, after than they hide their real identity and assimilated with the people who pierce big hole in the ear and erect stone monoliths with pride in the north of the Manipuri Kingdom. While Nikhoga’s nephew, Simi’s wife Putheli got pregnant while hiding in the forest & some few groups stay back with them later known as Simi Asah got emerged with the small Tiighaki tribe a break-away clan of Lia. Now Lia are one of the smallest tribe in Myanmar and Sumitos were never heard off for almost 3 centuries.

Toungoo began to weaken in the late 17th century. By the 1730s, a resurgent Manipuri Kingdom had conquered the Kabaw Valley from the Burmese. Kabaw valley’s adjacent northern Chin Hills likely came under Manipuri suzerainty. Burma re-exerted control over the region in the 1750s as King Alaungpaya of Konbaung dynasty conquered Manipur in 1758 and made it a tributary to the Burmese kingdom once more. Konbaung kings conscripted many Chin levies (along with Hkamti Shans) to fight in their wars in Lower Burma, Siam, and Manipur. The Chin Hills were one western region the Burmese retained after the rest of their western possessions—Assam, Manipur, and Arakan—were ceded to the British after the First Anglo-Burmese War of 1824-1826. While returning from the war from the Ahoms kingdoms (present Assam), many Shan and Chin warrior spread a rumours among themself saying that they had encountered with their lost tribe Sumito but nobody dares to take the mater seriously as they were badly defeated in their expedition. After the Second Anglo-Burmese War of 1852, the Konbaung throne’s authority in the remote regions was largely nominal, with the vassals paying nominal tribute and the British took over everything and after the political administrative change no one ever talks about Sumito again as they themselves are now under the yoke of the great empire.

Today, I’m geared up for the historic moment to come to Nagaland with the little knowledge I recollect from my granny stories, Internet and Naga Facebook friends about the land. I know it will be hard to convince people to accept my simple truth got through stories, similarities in culture and history, and after a critical analysis of hundred books. Here my point is – Are the present Sema Nagas the lost tribe of the Chin? Are Sema really a Nagas by blood or a Naga tribe in Nagaland because of its political-geography conveniences like the Kuki & the Dimasas? If they are really Nagas than why is their socio-cultural history & political conception totally different from the rest of the Nagas? They seem to be more similar to the CHIN (Burma). Chin is known by various names: Kukis in some part of NE India, Chakmas in Bangladesh & India, Mizos in India & Myanmar, Zomi in India & Myanmar, Borok in Twipra India, Siam in Thailand, Lia in Myanmar, Simi in Myanmar, etc. While the majority of the Nagas according to the books has similarities in a way or other but not the Semas? Sumitos were chased out from their ancestral land due to land disputes & the present Sema of Nagaland are still continuing, if I were to believe the daily newspaper on the net. Why is my grandfather calling his Superior Pou as Pure, who are they and where are they actually from? Who is General Mou, whom my grandfather regarded as the younger brother of Pou tribe? Why is there lots of similarities in folk-tales, even legendary names and proper noun between the Chin and Sema? Many people may even condemn me but no matter what the consequences is I’m still a Sema by blood, stepping into Nagaland to search my bloodline & if things work out well, the similarities my grandfather always told my grandmother will be proven true.

After all, I’m told that my grandfathers favourite dog was killed and lowered into the grave with him, which was the same last ritual for both the Chin and the Sema. Your valuable folk-tales, ideas, suggestions and criticism will be highly valued, either to prove me wrong or to help my dream realized through the thesis.

Lastly, any clue in helping me to meet my unknown relatives and my grandfather’s savior families will be forever indebted.

Thank you.

Sir,

On Monday (Aug 29), there was a talk show of Akhil Gogoi in news channel News Time. A caller over the phone said to Akhil Gogoi that his Hindi was not up to the mark. To this, Gogoi said that he would try to improve. I would like to remind that language is not a barrier for leadership. Mamata Bannerjee speaks very bad Hindi, but when she speaks entire India listens. So many people speak good Hindi in north India. Have they become leaders?

DMK party chief and one of the topmost leaders in India Karunanidhi simply has no knowledge of Hindi. He speaks Tamil only and sometimes when in Delhi, he speaks English. We need leaders who carry our problems to the national level. When it comes to national level, since Hindi is not popular in South India, the English language is the best medium. The Tamils are never proud of fellow Tamilians who speak good Hindi.

Lalu Prasad Yadav speaks very poor English, but when he speaks the world listens. He went to give a lecture in management studies at the Harvard University when he was the Union railway minister. He spoke in English and in the areas where he was not sure, he carried an interoculator who transcripted his Hindi into English for the listeners. The best thing about the leaders from Bihar, Bengal and Tamil Nadu is that they speak. Whether they know Hindi or not is secondary. The most important thing is that their leaders are not bothered about good or bad Hindi. They just speak without any complex. Actually one should be ashamed when one cannot speak the mother-tongue. Foreign languages can be dealt with later on.

We don’t want pandits in Hindi language. We need leaders who speak for us, be it in any language. Even a dumb person can speak for the oppressed people using sign language if he has the conviction to do so. A leader is a leader. We don’t need a Hindi expert. We need a voice. That voice is Akhil Gogoi. The message is important, not the language.

Yours sincerely,
Dwipen Gohain,
Jyoti Nagar, Dibrugarh-786001.

Letter To The Hon’ble Chief Minister, Mizoram

Hon’ble Sir,

In order to bring an amicable solution to the problems arising out of the demands of the Hmar People’s Convention (HPC), the Memorandum of Settlement (MoS) was signed between the Government of Mizoram and the Hmar Peoples Convention (HPC) on the 27th July 1994. As a result, the law and order situation in the HPC demand area has improved to a great extent. The people of the area are thankful to you for your past effort. However, unsatisfied with the 1994 agreement, the Hmar People’s Convention (Democratic) was formed in order to bring home the pressing demands and aspirations of the people of the area in general and that of the Hmars in particular. A memorandum in this regard (dated 17th November 2009) has been submitted to you. We also appreciate the initiative of the Village Council (V/C) Coordination Committee in creating a conducive atmosphere for peace talk between the Hmar People’s Convention (Democratic) (HPC-D) and the Government. We are also happy with the response of your government in this regard.

However, due to the non-implementation of the points as enshrined in the MoS after a gap of 17 years, there has been lots of resentment and dissatisfaction in the minds of the people. Moreover, due to intermittent disruption of normalcy and the existence of violence, the people of the HPC demand area lived in constant fear and insecurity. The people of the area have also appealed to the HPC-D not to indulge in any act of violence and not to create a sense of fear and insecurity in the minds of the people.

With an aim to prevent the further deterioration of law and order situation and for existence of lasting peace and tranquillity in the HPC demand area in particular and the whole state in general, the All Party Leaders Committee, Sinlung Hills organised Peace Rally on the 25th August 2011 at Sakawrtdai, Suangpuilawn and Saiphai villages, Mizoram. The public resolution on the day of the Peace Rally are as given below:

On this day, the 25th August 2011, we the participants of the PEACE RALLY organised by the All Party Leaders Committee at Sakawdai, Suangpuilawn and Saiphai villages have unanimously decided to appeal to the Government of Mizoram and the Government of India on the following points.

1. We are pained and disheartened by the fact that more than 17 years after the signing of Memorandum of Settlement between the Government of Mizoram and Hmar People’s Convention (HPC) on the 27th July 1994, the accord has not been implemented in letter and spirit.

2. We strongly feel that, unsatisfied with the 1994 accord which was devoid of lasting peace and harmony, the HPC(D) is up in arms thereby creating disruptive atmosphere in the HPC demand area. The State Government and the Central Government must sit for a political dialogue with the HPC(D) for the existence of lasting peace and harmony in the area.

3. While Mizoram is celebrating the 25 years of Peace Anniversary (1986-2011), the people in Sinlung Hills area are living in constant fear and insecurity. And in line with the appeal of the Government to the public to selflessly sacrifice oneself for the protection of peace and harmony, we now appeal to the Government to take in their part all necessary action for the peaceful settlement of all issues.

We hereby request you to sincerely look into the plight of the people expressed through this resolution and take all necessary action in resolving all conflicts arising out of the demands of the HPC(D).

Yours faithfully,

(H.ZOLIANA)
Secretary,
All Party Leaders Committee,
Sinlung Hills,

Decades old Sadar Hills Demand

Dear Sir,

It is disheartening to see the report about the PIL filed by RK Joysana, a self proclaimed social worker, against the SHDDC leaders and many law enforcing agents of the government of India and Manipur. It’s time that the SHDDC leader also file PIL against the Manipur Government headed by Ibobi for not upgrading the Sadar Hills ADC into a full fledged district, even though the Manipur Hill Areas District Council Act 1971 has made Sadar Hills an Autonomous District Council which will have to be upgraded as a district in due course of time. While the five other ADCs had been upgraded to a full fledged district, Sadar Hills remains. And it is almost four decade that the people of Sadar Hills have been waiting this declaration. Any untoward incidents happening will be solely borne by the government for not fulfilling the legitimate aspirations of the people of Sadar Hills.

It has to be noted that the SHDDC leaders had given time to the Manipur government through petitions to take decision in July 2011. However, the government did not even pay heed to such democratic means. As a result the bandh was enforced. With regard to bandhs NEHU teacher Xavier P Mao, during the peak of UNC bandh against election of ADCs in 2010, said that in a democratic nation like India, unless the citizens’ resort to violent agitations, their grievances are not considered. For which, bandh and blockade become one of the basic means of the weaker section of the society to address their problems against the dominant section and draw attention of the authorities concerned.

It is also pertinent to point out that while the lawless people under the leadership of AMUCO has razed the decades old library and assembly building by arson during the protest against the extension of ceasefire between the government of India and NSCN (IM) in 2001, and even in the BT Road incident bandh was called for four months in the valley, no action was taken against the leaders or PIL filed against the law enforcing agents of the government. This shows the true colour of the communal spirited so called social worker.

It is high time that the government of Manipur deeply ponders upon this issue and takes quick action unless the issue-less issue takes an ugly turn.

Regards,
Nohkhopao Touthang,
New Delhi.

Sir,

Apropos Mr Samson Khaba’s letter on the Defunct Family Court of Manipur published on 19th August last, I would like to supplement that The Family Court is the only place where one can get justice for matrimonial tussles and disharmonies. But, as most things in Manipur, the Family Court is seemingly crawling when it should run apace as in other States of Inda. What is the Government doing? Is it only busy in the vote politics and embezzling public funds? Is the legal system in Manipur so deblorable just because it merged into India? Or, is it due to our own peoples’ neglect, indolence and complacency in matters pertaining to legal complexities? These are questions that need to be answered with a deep breadth and a little introspection. It is high time that the authorities and the general public go hand in hand to rectify the malady in Family Court. We want to to hear a lucid report of the ailing Family Court in the front page of your esteemed daily. hence, kindly investigate into the matter and give a detailed news coverage in the interest of the hapless people of Manipur.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
Bhabini Maibam,
