I give up!

January 31st, 2007 2:10 pm by BlackWhite

This happened somewhere back in the early Nineties.

A person I know, who’s father is a missionary (retired IAS), born and brought up in Delhi, was nominated to read some verses from the Bible to start the DMZP get-together. I knew his Mizo wasn’t very good, so he approached the microphone with a copy of the Good News Bible and said, “Mizo tawng ka chhiar thiam vak lo a, Good News Bible atangin kan chhiar mai ange.”

Then I overheard a person (Mizo, of course) behind me mutter, “Mizo tawng a chhiar thiam loh chu sawi kher a van ngai lo tak.”

I for one know that, had this person, not said what he said, some other person at my back would have managed to mutter, “Sap tawnga chhiar kher a van tul lo tak.”

You can’t please everyone.
