New Delhi, March 14, 2010: An eminent professor of Jawaharlal Nehru University, P. K. S Pandey released yesterday the “Self-tutor Book of Zo-English-Hindi’ at the Sunday Worship Service of MELC Delhi here in Munirka. This is the first book among the Zous in India having an International Standard Book Number (ISBN).

The book was released by Prof. Pandey, Centre for Linguistic (School of Language, Literature & Culture Studies), JNU, New Delhi in the presence of government officers, scholars, students, church leaders and various community leaders.

In his speech, Prof. P.K.S Pandey said: “It’s a very special privilege for me to associate my self to release this precious book. Philip’s book is a pioneer in the field of Zo languages. We don’t find big officers writing languages and culture. Most of these books are written by the academicians only, but it is also rare. I am deeply inspired by his works. JNU is proud to have Philip as research student. I hope he will inspire the educated youths and others.”
MELCD Pastor T. Lalpu blessed the author and his book.
The author, Philip Thanglienmang explained how the book came into being. “The traditional shawls, Puanlaisan (wear by men) and Puandum (wear by women) is a symbolic representation of Zou,” the author said. ” It took eight years to complete the book”.
The books written by scholars are costly. However, the author admitted his book is priced at nominal rate (Rs. 200/-) so that many people can easily buy it.
Words from Well-wishers and friends
On the releasing day, during ‘speech from, if any’ slot, the following persons sprang up and shared their words:
Mr. Tongmin Misao, chairman, Kuki Worship Service, spoke on behalf of KWS, said: “We really appreciate Pu Phillip’s work. We wish him, and his family, God’s blessing.”
Mr. Mung, chairman, Tedim Chin Development Society, said: “Though he might be busy in his office, yet, he could write book. Philip set a good example for us.”
Mr. Ngamlen, vice-president, Kuki Students’ Organisation, said: “Many people will benefit from Pu Phillip’s book. His work is also a kind of service to God.”
Mr. Kammuanmung, research scholar, JNU, said: “Hindi is a big problem for many of us. The book will help us a lot. After reading this book, I hope I would able to argue anyone in Hindi.”
Mr. Muanneu, M.Com, a Sunday School Teacher in ZCF Delhi, says, “I appreciate Pu Phillip for bringing out such a finest book ever among the Zous”.
Mr. Suanliankhup Baite, a veteran student leader, said: “I came to Delhi in 1999. In my early days, life was so horrible without learning Hindi. Now this book will add more ideas. I wish the author to come out with more pictures/photographs in the next books.”
Mr. Thangzalun Khuptong, a prominent leader, wonders, “How did Bro Philip manage his time?”
Mr. Joyful Tonsing, president, Siamsinpawlpi (SSPP), says: “Among the Zomis, we have such keen researcher in language is a pride for us. We appreciate his works and wish him the best in the days to come.”
In 2006, Philip Tanglienmang authored the following books:
(1) Zo Lahaamte, Kigeentena leh Kiteekaahnate Haambu (Vol. I) (Dictionary of Zo Poetic Words, Metaphors & Similes Vol. I)
(2) A Brief Biography of Subedar Peter Thangkhokam (NB: About his beloved father)
(3) Ka Hinkhuo Tomkim by Mari Lienzanieng (NB: About his beloved mother)
(4) Ka Katekizam Masapen
(5) Katholic Zailate leh Mass Lamzuuina
Now another two books of the same author is in press. It is likely to publish this year.
Though the releasing function was organised in simple manner, however, the turn out was quite impressive. The function ended successfully. Praise the Lord!

Some thoughts on Zo Culture, Customs and Language

By P. Kham Do Nang in his unpublished B.R.E Thesis; Upto date history of Zo tribes March,1994 (Zo ngaina leh tuonthu khangthu); Yangon, Myanmar(Burma).
We all know that our nationality would remain and exist only as long as we preserve our cultures and customs. But nowadays we can simply say that some of our sons and daughters ignored our own cultures and customs., and are ashamed of it because of being Zo tribes. Some cannot speak our mother tongue(Zo/Zou language). They even avoid and shun from observing and abiding their own cultures and customs. Some even substituted other national names instead of their traditional names. Some modernize their personal name which their parents named them at their birth. Some even look down and curse their own tribe of Zo people. These are the great mistakes and faults of their parents or guardians, who carelessly allowed them to ignore and terminate their precious culture and customs from the very beginning of their childhood.(Page 330).
Donot let your whole family speak other dialect except our mother tongue(read: Zo) especially in your residence and its compound. Never forget to give first priority to your nationality, culture, custom, mother tongue and God. Keep your nationality by preserving your valuable cultures and customs which are as precious a silver and gold, that your almighty God purposely and especially provide for you from the beginning of the creation of the world.(Ibid.Page 332)
Actually, words that are used in Zo songs are common language which are widely used by Zomi of Tedim and Ton Zaang townships. In fact, some Zo traditional songs have been used in Christian songs. To be in line with the present situation as well as for the preservation of Zo traditinal songs and cultures, the Zo Christians should consider the used of Zo traditional songs in praising God. Since, Zo traditional songs are as precious as silver and gold, it is our task to maintain and preserve such a valuable merit handed down from generations to generations. (Ibid.Page 333)
The original tongue of the Zote might be Hâidawi dialect. As the Israelites retained the Hebrew language so also if we are going to retain our real mother tongue, we must speak Hâidawi dialect, for it was the first and lingua Franca of the Zote descendants. Similarly, if anyone among the Zote descendants would like to print any book or Bible, he would use the Hâidawi dialect words, not because of its fitness but only for it originality. I believe we all agree to give first priority to Haidawi dialect as our Zote- original mother tongue.(Ibid.Page 442).
