Bood Late da Daohi Manar


PARA KHYNROO, KHYNTHAI NE CHYNRANG,

ALAE! CHIRUP HAM CHAH CHAKAE NE CHAH PHALANG

ALAE! DUHAI ÏOW LEIT NEI CHAH BEIÑ NE CHAH MYNTHU,

ALAE! ÏEI SIH HAM BOOD ÏONG TON HAM BOOD LATE,

PANCHNIAT I BUROM, U KUP U DEIÑ WAROH CHI RTA

Daohi says about the poem:


"Today the 26th June, the whole world is observing the International Day against drug abuse and illicit trafficking.


The poem "Bood late" simply means 'imitating'. This poem reminds us not to get influenced by evil or allow bad examples to influence us. Follow only what is good. In general, this poem reminds us that drug use, drug dependency and drug abuse was and is a silent killer in our society. This poem encourages everyone especially youth to not take drugs or any toxic substances, to not get influenced by such bad examples.


As we are aware, cases of HIV/AIDS are high in the Jaiñtia region and Meghalaya is also one among leading states in Northeast India. So, to stop and prevent that, the poem encourages us to abstain and avoid any form of drug consumption and selling of these substances.


For example the lines "Ham ya kdaw kti para i toa ya sneiñ ya kyntu" means let's not judge or point fingers at others, we can help one another to come together to unite, so that we can overcome or fight against this silent killer in our society. This poem aims to educate people about drugs and also steps to eliminate drugs and illicit trafficking to save lives."
