Ha kane ka khep, ka Kunti ka la batai ïa ki jingleh bha u stad Dhurvasa mynba ka dang samla. U Durvasa [1] kum ka jinglong hi, u long uba kylla jingmut kloi kloi hynrei ka Kunti[2] pat ka long kaba kloi ban pynsngewbha bad pynbiang ïa u man ba u wankai sha ki kmie ki kpa. Te kumta u ju kyrkhu kyrdoh, “Phin sa long ka kmie ki khun ba kynja blei,” bad u hikai ki ïingduwai siat (mantra) kiba ka lah ban duwai ha uno uno u blei u ba ka mon bad ban ïa sngewtynnad bad u, U Durvasa  uba la ïohi lypa ïa kane, u la  tip ba kan donkam ïa ka jingïarap lashai la  shisngi. Kine ki jingai une u stad Durvasa  ka la pynglyngngoh bad kumjuh pynartatien ïa ka jingtrei kam kane ka duwai siat. Kumta ban pyrshang ka la khot ïa u blei Surya[3]– u blei sngi, da kaba kynnoh kito ki ïingduwai siat. Tang mar ïadep, u ïeng knung hakhmat jong ka da ka jingriam blei bad ka burom baroh, “Phi kwah aiu?” Ka Kunti pat ka la tieng bad kam lait kren shuh.  “Em em,” ka la kyrbeh, “Nga – shu lehkai.  Map ïa nga ..khie leit noh. Map,” ka dem  pyrkup ban pan map.

“Phim tip seh mo ba phim dei ban lehkai?” u la byrthen.

“Phim ju dei ban lehkai bad ka mantra”

Ka Kunti ka la jnang hi tiaw bad ka la tieng palat. Ha kane ka por, u blei Surya u la kdup thrait ïa ka bad ki la ïa kdup slem slem. Da kane ka jingleh, la kha u wei u khun uba phong ka riam lehthma bad ki ksah shkor baheh. La pynkyrteng ïa une u khyllung u Karna[4]. Hynrei ban lait na ki jingshah kren ïa uta u khun pongka, ka Kunti ka la buh ïa u khyllung ha ka shang bad pynper ïa ka ha wah. La ïoh ïa kane ka shang da kawei ka briew kaba kyrteng ka Radhe[5] ka tnga uwei u nongñiah kali ïapom uba shong harud kata ka wah. La ri la sumar bha ïa uta u khyllung ba ki kheiñ  kum ka jingphah u blei hi. Ynda la ïohsngew ïa kane ka jingïathuhkhana u Pandu[6] u la ong, “Ki blei ki la kyrkhu ïaphi na ka bynta ban pyndep ïa ki jingthmu blei. Ka jingtim ïa nga te ka la pynlong ïa nga ba ngam  lah shuh ban long kpa shi junom. Wat pynlehnohei ïa ka por. Phi dei ban duwai nyngkong eh ïa u Yama[7], u blei ka jingïap u ba dei ka hok baroh. U dei uba hok tam na kiwei pat ki jingthaw bneng. U khun u ban kha na u un sa ïalam ïa ka jaitbynrtew Kuru ha ka lynti ba dei man ka por.”

Ka Kunti ka pynkhreh ïalade ha jingthiah da kaba pyrkhat shaphang u Yama bad duwai siat ïa u da kito ki ïingduwai siat  ba ka ju nang. Ynda u Yama u la wan paw, namar kane ka dei ka sien ba ar bad ka la ju mlien, ka la nang bha ban shalai. Hadien ka sa kha ïa u khun nyngkong bad ha ka por ba kha, ka sur bneng ka la pyrta,  “U khyllung un sa long uba kynsai na ki  briew baroh, uba khuid ha ki jingmut,  ka ktien bad ka kam bad un sa ïoh ka  bor bakhlaiñ bad ka jingshlur. Yn sa khot  kyrteng ïa u U Yudhishitra[8] – u bym lah ban pyndem ha ka thma.”

U Pandu u la kyrpad ïa ka Kunti ban duwai biang  na ka bynta u khun ba ar. U da ong, “Ka jingim u Kashtriya kan ym long kaba pura lymda u ïoh ka jingkhlaiñ  ha ka bor met. To duai mynta ban ïoh u  khun bakhlaiñbor maïa. “Ka Kunti ka sa  duai ha u Vayu [9]u blei Lyer, Ha ka por ba  u khun u mih na kpoh ka kmie, la mih ka  jingkhih kum u jumai rit. ïa une u khyllung la khot kyrteng u Bhimasena[10].

Hadien kane u Pandu a la pyrkhat biang  “Ngi dei ban don u khla ka wait ha ka kur jong ngi, bad une u dei ban long u bym  don ba lah ban ïaleh.” U Pandu bad ka Kunti ki la len bad duwai shisnem lynter  ha u Blei Indra[11], u rangbahduh ki blei uba  lah ban leh shibun kiei kiei. Ha ka sngi ba ka Kunti ka la kha, ka sur na bneng ka  sawa, “Une u khyllung un sa long uba  khlaiñ ïa baroh, uba dap da ka jingstad  bad uba tbit ba ka jingpyndonkam ïa ki  tiar   ïaleh kiba un sa long uba tbit bha ban pyndonkam ban pyndem ïa ki nongshun bad sa  kyntiew ïa ka jait Kuru.” La pynkyrteng une u khunlung u Arjun[12].

Hadien kane, ka Kunti kam kwah shuh ban ïoh khun wat la u Pandu pat u dang kwah shuh. Ha kajuh ka por, ka Madri[13] ka tnga  ba-ar u Pandu ruh ka la kwah ban ïoh khun  noh, namar ka Kunti ka la don lypa 3 ngut  ki khun. U Pandu u la kyrpad ïa ka Kunti ban hikai lem ïa ka Madri kito ki ïingduwai  siat. Ka Madri ynda ka la nang, ka la khot  duwai ïa ki blei Aswin[14], ka la kha ïa ki synrap uba la ai kyrteng Nakula[15] bad Sahadeva[16],  kine ki san ngut ki shipara la khot ki  Pandava[17].

Ha kajuh ka por, ka Gandhari[18] ka sa kha 100 ngut ki khun shynrang na u Dhritarashtra,  uto u syiem ba matlah. U khun nyngkong eh jong ki 100 ngut ki shipara la ai kyrteng  u Duryodhan[19] bad uba ar pat, u Dussasana[20],  bad kumta ter ter. Kine keiñ ki sa long nongshun ki Pandava baroh shi jingim. Ha ka jingshisha ka Mabharata baroh kawei ka ïathuh tang shaphang ka jingïashut bad jingïaleh hapdeng  kine ki ar kynhun kiba ym ju kut shuh lait  noh tang ka jingïap.

Ka jingkut u Pandu ka wan urlong syndet. Ha kawei ka sngi katba u nang ïa leitkai bad ka Madri sha khlaw, ka snam ka sdang  khluit kynsan kynsan haba u ïohi ïa ki dieng  ki siej bad ki syntiew ki mrad ki mreng kiba ïa  muja ïa ka jingwan ka pyrem. Katba u dang ïa shong kai hangta harud ki phlang ha ki  lawbnïap, ka la wan buk ka jingkwah palatka Madri. U la kem bad thaiñ sbak bad lympat hangta ha phlang. Ka Madri ka la pynkynmaw ïa kato ka jingtim ka skei, hynrei um shah shkor. U la ïoh tnga ïa ka Madri hynrei u ïap noh tang mar ïa sdang ban trei kam.  Kane ka la pynkthang palat ïa ka Madri.  Haba la leit on thang ïa u Pandu, ka la aiti la kito ki synrap ha ka jingsumar ka Kunti. Ka la ïeng na ka jingthang bad noh lang bad la u tnga bad ingkhong khait hangta.

 Bynta ba-ar Rung Ki Nongïaleh

Na kito ki khlaw baitynnad ba ju sah u Pandu ha ki sngi khadduh jong u, ka tnga  banyngkong jong u, ka Kunti ka sa wan phai  noh bad kito ki san ngut ki khun. Ka wan sah noh hapoh ka jingsumar u Dhritarashtra  bad u Bhisma. Ka long kaba sngewtynnad pat ban tip ba u Dhritarashtra nalor ba u sumar  bha ïa la ki jong ki 100 ngut ki khun la jong, u  ri bad samar kumjuh ïa kine ki 5 ngut ha ka  ba ai bam, pynnang pynstad bad ai kumjuh  ki jinghikai la baroh.

Baroh kine ki khynnah ki ïalehkai ïa sngewtynnad baroh shisngi. Hynrei ka long ka jingmlien u Bhimasena ban pynshrai bad pyndom ïa ki bakha jong u. Ka por ka poi haduh ba man ka sngi kumne, u Duryodhana u la jlep thui ïa kane namar ba u ju long  ma u u dieng shaiñdoh ha kine ki jingpynsalia bad jingleh shrieh u Bhimasena. Te kumta u ju woh kjat ïa u Duryodhana ne  khynñiuh ki tnad dieng haba u dang kiew  haduh ba un da hap. Ka la poi ka por haduh ba u Duryodhana u la sngew salia bad um sngew lah shah shuh ban ïa shong  lang bad u bakha. Te da ka jingïasuh buit  bad ki lok, u ju pyrshang ban pynduh pyndamki. Shisien lei lei u ai ka dawai thiah  bad beh ïa u Bhima bad u sa teh bad bret  sha wah. U Bhima pat u pyllait na ka dawai bad pynkylla um ïa ka bih bad u sa  per hi sha sla um.

Ynda u Bhisma u la thung ïa u nonghikai  ban hikai ha kaba pyndonkam ïa ki  tiar  thma,  u Duryodhana u la ïohi da ka jingkthang ba  wat uta u nonghikai u kham noh ka mon sha  u Arjuna ha kaba hikai. Une u nonghikai, u kyrteng u Drona[21] uba dei u Bamon. Hynrei ym ju kham don koit u Bamon u ban long uba tbit kum u ha ki kam ïalehthma.  bad ha ka jingpyndonkam ïa ki  tiar . Kumno  ju long u ju hikai bha la ki khynnah ban  long ki nongïaleh ba tbit. U don u khun u  ba kyrteng u Aswathama[22] uba u da ai kyrpang  ki jinghikai. Hynrei narieh narieh ruh u Arjuna u nang peit bad tanjingmut baroh kat  kaba u ïohi U Arjuna hadien, u sa long u  ba tbit bad pnah tyngeh ha kaba pyndonkam ïa  ka waitlam, ka gada (ka  tiar  ba kum ka ïatom  ba don pat ka jingbat ban talaiñ bad pduh  pynïap) ïa u sum ban siat khmat briew ïa kano kano ka sohpdung ba shitom. U ïaleh  kumjuh ha khyndew ne halor u kulai ne ha  ka kali ïapom, bad tang marwei u lah ban  pynliem ïa kiba pyrshah ïa u. Nalor kine u don ka sap ban siat ïa ki jingbthei tang  da ka bor maïan ka jingpyrkhat. Haba shu  peit, ka long kum ka jingleh byrtong haba u  pyndonkam ïa u khnam bad ryntieh.

Hynrei ba  u kwah ban tynjuh ïa ka khlieh jong ki u  ong, “To mynta ïathuh ïa nga, kaei phi ïohi,  to sdang mame Yudhisthira.’’ U Yudhisthira u  la jubab, “Nga ïohi ïa phi ïa u dieng teicl ka  tnad U Drona u la dom, bad kylli na kiwei  pat. Ki ruh ki ai kijuh ki jubab. Ynda u la ngïah, u la kylli ïa u Arjuna, “Me pat me ïohi aiu U Arjuna u la jubab bet,

“Siat kata.” la hukum u Drona.

U Arjuna u la siat ban pynhap ïa ka  khlieh ka sim kumba shu khrai – sbak. U Drona u la kmen bad kdup ïa u, “Kato keiñ  dei ka jingtbit siat.”

Ka lad ka plie biang  ïa u Arjuna ban  pyni ïa ka bor ba phylla.

Kane ka kam ka long ruh kaba u da ñiew tang bad kheiñ burom haduh katta katta ha khmat u briew bad u Blei bad ka long ka kam kaba dang nylla ha ka jingïapoikha poiman kaba dang long tang para khasi.

Kane ka kam ka long ruh kaba u da ñiew tang bad kheiñ burom haduh katta katta ha khmat u briew bad u Blei bad ka long ka kam kaba dang nylla ha ka jingïapoikha poiman kaba dang long tang para khasi.

Khongphai pat u kynthoh kumne, “Kam dei tang kano kano ka jingïateh kular, hynrei ka dei ka kam kyntang na ka bynta ban pynïar ïa u tnum u tyndai, ban ïakoit ïakhïahkrat, ban khraw u synñiang u bynhei, ban ioh khun ioh kti, bad ban long phur arliang kha ha ki sngi ban wan”.[2] Ha kane ka jingthoh, nga thmu ban thir bad ban tai shaphang ka rukom poikha poiman ki Khasi ha Wahkhen, ka shnong kaba don la ka rukom poikha poiman kaba kham pher na kiwei pat ki shnong.

Ka Wahkhen ka long ka shnong kaba kham bun na ki nongshong shnong haduh mynta ki dei kiba dang bat ïa la ka niam ka rukom, ka riti dustur tynrai. Mynta haba phai pat shaphang ka kam ïapoikha poiman nga shem ba ki briew ha kane ka shnong ki dei kiba ñiew kor bad kheiñ burom ïa ka.

U Sung Khongwet ong ba naduh ka por ba jer ba thoh ïa ki khun kynthei bad shynrang kada don ka jingnam ha u Blei najrong ha tbïan ban kyrkhu kyrdoh ïaki, ban plie ka lad ka lynti ïoh kam ïoh jam sharum shaneng ka ri Khasi bad ba kin ïaid kin jngi sawdong kylleng ka pyrthei khlem jingpynwit ne kah lynti da ki ksuid ki khrei ne ki maian mangit jong ki sawdong sawkun jong ka mei ramew shi tyllup.[6] Halor katei ka nongrim u ong ba kam don kum kata ka jingpyrshah ban ïapoikha poiman bad ki bymdei na ka jaitbynriew Khasi hynrei u la ong pat ba ka jingpyrshah shongkha khleh ka dei tang ka jingpynsngew briew mynta ban ïada ïa ka ri bad ka jaitbynriew ban lait na ka jingshah tyllep ha kiwei pat ki jaitbynriew.[7] Te, dei na kata ka daw ba hap ban bud ryntih ïaka riti dustur tynrai jong u mynbarim. Kumta ki ong ba ka shongkha shongman ha kane ka shnong ka dei kaba kida pyndep hukum bad bud hukum ïaka riti dustur u mynbarim.

Kumno ki khun kin burom ia u kpa

U Kynrad u la ong ïa u Ramlal: Phi ïohi, u la kham heh khyndiat ha ka snem, bad namarkata u la kham long phikir. U shong khop katba ki khun samla ki dang ïaleh kmen sngewbha.”

U M te u la don kumba arphew phra snem karta ei ei.

Ka jingiakren ïa khana ka la phai sha u Hanuman, uba ïa ka dur jong u lah wah ha kynroh jong ka kamra u Kynrad.

U Ramakrishna u la ong: “Mutdur ïa u Hanuman. Um ju pyrwa ïa ka pisa-tyngka, ka burom, ka kyrdan, ka riam ka beit, ka bam ka sa ne ïa kiei kiei ruh. U thrang tang ïa u Blei. Katba u dang phet noh bad kita ki tiar thma bneng kiba la buhrieh kyrpang ha u rijied ba la pynphyrnai, ka Mandodari ka la ïaleh ban pynbieit ïa u da ki har rukom ki soh khnang ba un hiar sha madan bad ban pynhap ïa ki tiar ïalehthma. 5. Ka khana ba la pynpaw hangne la ïathuh ha ka Ramayana. U Ravana u lah ïoh ka buskit ba na kata ka daw ba ïa u lah ban pynïap tang da ka kynja tiar bakynja bneng. Ïa kane ka tiar la buhrieh ha u rijied ba la suit rongksiar ha ïing syiem jong u. Ha kawei ka sngi u Hanuman, ha ka jingriam pher kum ka dur jong u shrieh, u la wan ha ka ïingsyiem bad pynpra ïa u rijied. Katba u dang mareh lem bad kata ka tiar, u la shah pynbieit da ki soh ba la ai da ka Mandodari, ka tnga u Ravana, khnang ba u lah ban pynphai noh ïa kata ka tiar. Markumta u la shim ïa la ka dur lajong bad u la rwai kawei ka jingrwai ba la thoh ha ka kot. Hynrei um shym la shah pynbieit ei ei da kaba suk. Ha ka jubab ïa ka buit shet shukor jong ka, u la rwai ïa kane ka jingrwai:

                “Nga donkam ne em ïa U soh?
                Nga don u soh ka jingim
                Ba seisoh da shisha. Hapoh dohnud jong nga,

                U soh jong ka jingsuk bajanai.
                Ha trai uta u diengsoh ba pynjah ïa jingsliang,
                Jong u Rama nga shong suk mynsiem.
                Ban kheit kat ïa uno ma u soh ba nga mon.
                Hynrei lada kren shaphang u soh –
                Ngam dei u nongkhrong, ban shim soh katba ïoh.

                Da kaba skhem triang, nga ïaid

                Da kaba iehnoh u soh bakthang ïa phi.”

Katba u Ramakrishna u dang rwai ïa kawei ka jingrwai u la ngam ha ka jingpuson buaid blei (samadhi). Shuh shuh, ki khmat ba khapbrip bad ka met bym khih ei ei ba uno uno u ju ïohi ha ka dur jong u. Dang tang shi minit mynshuwa, ki nongbud ki dang ïaleh kmen leh sngewbha lang. Mynta pat, baroh ki khmat ki ïa peit seh ïa u. Ba kumta, u M u la ïohi ha ka sien ka ba-ar ba u Kynrad u don ha ka jingpuson buaid blei (samadhi).

Hadien slem slem bha ba u Kynrad u la wan biang ha ka jinglong tipbriew kumba ju long. Ka khmat jong u ka pyni ïa ka dak phuh samrkhie bad ka met kaba i-sting, ki jingmut-jingpyrkhat jong u ki la sdang long biang kumba ju long. U la jaw ummat kmen haba u la ïai ong ïa ka kyrteng bakyntang jong u Rama. U M u la lyngngoh la une u juh u riewkhuid u la long u briew uba khyndiat minit mynshuwa u la i kumba u dei u khynnah ba dang 5 snem.

U Kynrad u la ong ha u Narendra bad ha u M. “Ngan jin da la sngewbha eh ban ïohsngew ba phi ïakren bad ïatainia ha ka ktien phareng. Baroh arngut ki la rkhie. Hynrei ki la ïabteng ïa ka jingiakren ha la ka ktien tynrai la jong. U M um shlan shuh ban ïa ainia ha khmat u Kynrad. Watla u Ramakrishna u la ïai pynbor ïa ki kim ju ïakren phareng.

Ha ka por 5 baje janmiet baroh ki nongbud lait noh u Narendra bad u M ki la mih noh na ïing u Kynrad. Katba u M u la dang ïaid kai ha ka kper jong ka ïingmane, markumta u la lap ba u Kynrad u la dang ïakren bad u Narendra harud ka pung ba ri radha. U Ramakrishna u la ong ïa u Narendra. “Khmih shane. Wan shane man ka teng. Phi dei uba dang wan thymmai. Ha ka jingiakynduh bad jingia-ithuh ba nyngkong ki briew ki ju ïa kynduh iwei-ia-iwei pat man ka teng, kumba long u baieid ïa la ka baieid jong u. (u Narendra bad u M ki la ïarkhie). Kumta, sngewbha wan, phin ïa wan em?”

U Narendra, u dkhot jong ka Brahmo Samaj, u la long uba kham phikir ïa la ka jong ka jingkular. U la ong da kaba phuh samrkhie, “Hooid, babu, ngan pyrshang.”

Katba ki la dang wanphai ha kamra u Kynrad, u Ramakrishna u la ong ïa u M: “Haba ki nongrep ki leit ïew ban thied masidab na bynta ban lur lyngkha, ki lah da kaba suk ban ïathuh ïa uba bha ne uba sniew tang da kaba ktah ïa ki tdong jong ki. Da kaba ktah kumta ruh, katto katne kiba smiej bieij ki dem noh ha madan. Ki nongrep ki ithuh ba kine ki bym ju mlien lur bad kumta ki kyntait ïa ki. Ki jied tang ïa kito ki masidab kiba kynthih bad khlaiñ bor mynsiem haba ktah ïa ki tdong jong ki. U Narendra u long kum u masidab ha kane ka kyrdan ba-ar. U dap da ka bor mynsiem hapoh jong u.”

                U Kynrad u la phuh samrkhie haba u la ong ïa kane bad u la bteng pat: “Don katto katne ki briew ki bym don jingkhlaiñ bor ha kano kano ka dur. Ki long kum ki shira ba la dung bad pdem ha ka dud – bajem kum ka ja sohriew. Ym don bor ei ei na la ka jinglong tynrai.

                Ka la dei ka por premmiet. U Kynrad u la dang shong puson ïa u Blei. U la ong ha u M: Khie leit bad iakren bad u Narendra. Da iathuh ïa nga kumno phi pyrkhat ïa u.”   

Ka jingduwai miet ka la kut ha ïingmane. U M u la ïa kynduh ïa u Narendra harud ka wah Ganga bad ki la sdang iathuh khana. U Narendra u la iathuh ïa u M shaphang la ka jingpule ha kolej, ka jinglong dkhot jong u ha ka Brahmo Samaj, bad kumta ter ter.

Ka la miet bha mynta bad ka la dei ïa u ba un leit noh, hynrei um sngewhun ban shu leit kumto te ba kumta u la leit wad ïa u Kynrad Ramakrishna. U la sngew shoh mynsiem haduh katta katta ïa ka jingrwai jong u Kynrad bad u la kwah sngap shuh shuh. Ha kaba khatduh u la iashem ïa u Kynrad ba u dang ïaid marwei ha ka lynti ban leit sha natmandir ha khmat ka ïingmane ka Blei Kali. Ka sharak rit ka dang meh ha baroh arliang ka ïingmane jong ka Kmie Bakhuid.

U M u la sngewbang eh ïa ka sur jingtem bathiang jong u Kynrad. Da kaba sngew-arjingmut u la kylli la yn dang don jingrwai, jingput-jingtem ha kata ka miet. Em, ym don jingrwai shuh mynta ka miet, la ong u Ramakrishna hadien ba la phalang jingshai khyndiat.

Kynrad: Phi ithuh ïa u Balaram Bose?”

M: Em, babu, ngam ithuh ïa u.

Kynrad: U sah ha Bosepara.

M: Ñiuma, babu, ngan sa wad ïa u.

Katba u Ramakrishna u la ïaid shaneng-sharum ka ïing heh (hall) bad u M, u la ong ïa  u: “To ngan kylli jingkylli ïa phi: Kumno phi pyrkhat shaphang jongnga?

U M. u shu sngap jar jar. U Ramakrishna u la kylli biang:” Kumno phi pyrkhat shaphang jongnga? Kumba katno ana nga don jingnang-jingtip shaphang u Blei?

M: “Ngam sngewthuh, kaei phi mut ong kumno da ka ktien ‘ana’. Hynrei na ka bynta kane nga ngeit skhem: Ngam pat ju ïohi kum kane ka rukom jingnang-jingtip, ka jingieid buaid Blei, ka jingngeit ha u Blei, ka jingaitilut na ki kam pyrthei bad ka jinglong kylluid mynsiem ha baroh ki liang.

U Kynrad u la rkhie.

M: “Lehse kata ka ïing kaba phi la ong ïa nga ban leit, ka dei ka ïing uba riewspah. Ki lah ban ym shah rung ïanga shapoh. Nga tharai ka bha ba ngan ym leit. Ngan kham bha ba ngan ïa kynduh ïa phi hangne.”

Kynrad: “O, em, em phi! Balei phin pyrkhat kumta? Shu ïathuh ïa ka kyrteng jong nga. Ong ba phi kwah ban ïa kynduh ïa nga, te yn sa wan shaw mano-re-mano ïa phi ban ïa kynduh bad nga.”

U M. u la shu kohnguh la ka khlieh bad hadien ba u la ainguh ïa u Kynrad, u la mih noh.

Leit suk ban bam kwai ha dwar U Blei Bah Sumar Sing Sawian!

Obituary: Remembering the Legacy of Bah Sumar Sing Sawian – A Pioneer in Journalism, Literature, and Khasi Culture

Leit suk ban bam kwai ha dwar U Blei Bah Sumar Sing Sawian!
Ramakrishna Mission, Shillong mourns the loss of Bah Sumar Sing Sawian, who passed away on April 8, leaving behind a remarkable legacy that has left an indelible mark on the history of Meghalaya. Bah Sawian was a trailblazer in many aspects, being the first Khasi to join mainstream journalism and making significant contributions to the promotion of Khasi culture and heritage through his writings.
In the early 1990s, Bah Sawian was appointed as the Chief Bureau – Northeast of the prestigious Press Trust of India (PTI), where he displayed unparalleled dedication and professionalism in his work. Later, he joined the English daily Apphira, published by Ri Khasi Press, in the early 2000s and went on to become the Editor-in-Chief, succeeding the renowned writer Kynpham Sing Nongkynrih. His journalistic pursuits were widely recognized and earned him accolades from his peers and readers alike.
Bah Sawian’s passion for literature was also evident in his work. He has written many books, including Ka Jutang and Ki Khun Ki Hajar na Jingkieng Ksiar, among others.
He also translated the Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s composition “Geetanjali” into Khasi. He authored numerous books on the indigenous Khasi faith and the culture of the Hynñiewtrep community, reflecting his deep understanding and appreciation of his roots.
As an elder of the Seng Khasi Seng Kmie, Bah Sawian played a pivotal role in organizing the annual pilgrimage to Lum Sohpet Bneng peak, known as “Ka Kiew Pyneh Rngiew.” He was instrumental in preserving and promoting the traditional practices and beliefs of the Khasi tribe, and his efforts were commendable in keeping the cultural heritage alive for future generations.
Bah Sawian’s contributions were not limited to journalism and literature alone. He also made significant contributions to traditional archery, organizing competitions through the Apphira Archery Committee, further promoting indigenous sports and fostering a sense of community pride.
Throughout his illustrious career, Bah Sawian was associated with All India Radio, Shillong, and Doordarshan Kendra, Shillong, where he continued to inspire and mentor young journalists. His work was widely recognized, and he received numerous awards for his exceptional contributions to journalism and social service, including the prestigious Meghalaya Day Award – U Tirot Sing Award for Arts and Literature in 2017, which honored his outstanding achievements.

Bah Sawian’s demise is a great loss to the literary world, and the Khasi community. We are grateful for the time we had with him, and we take solace in knowing that his legacy will live on through his works and the lives he touched. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.

U Myllung ka Mynnor, Mynta bad Lawei

Myllung ba stad ba iohi jngai,
Jylliew pyrkhat naei ban shai,
Aiom tyllun ki sngi u bnai,
Na ka mynnor u lum jingshai.

Myllung u iaid kylleng ka ri,
Da la ki khmat u kwah iohi,
Mariang buhrieh kan sei ia ki,
Naduh kynthong mynta iohi.

Shwa ba phin rung sha Soso Tham,
Myllung u shna ka dur sahnam,
Jingkieng jyrmi iathain dani,
Dur ba phylla bym juh iohi.

Ka wah napoh jingkieng ka tuid,
Tlang bad Lyiur ki sur kynud,
Pynthor ki nur kine jyrngam,
Ki shalynnai ki jngi ki ngam.

Ha ki diengbah tiew dieng ki pur,
Ki shat syrngiew ha um ba sngur,
Ki mrad kine ki wan dih um,
Ki shong jahthaid ha maw bajngum.

Ki khun bynriew shong dih duma,
Ki shong jahthaid harud jong ka,
Kynthei kit soh na thiep ki kiew,
O khlem khuslai ki hiar ki kiew.

Ko ma kylli shong dih duma?

Halor ki maw khlem khuslai,
Hapneh mariang kine kynjai.

Myllung u peit shano kan ingi
Kam kwah ban ioh jingkieng jyrmi

Ka kup ki rong da i jemnud,
Ban khlad na ka jingkieng bynnud
