Jingtmang La Shnong da i Ibakor Shisha Kharmujai




Na sor ngan leit sha shnong lajong

Ban peit ki kha ban peit ki man

Ban bam sohkymphor ban bam sohphan

Ban khwai dohkha ban khwai dohtham

Ngan kiew diengkwai ngan kheit tympew

Ngan lum latyrpad ngan mad jajew

Ngan kiew ki thied ngan kam ki maw

Ban poi sha kshaid ban poi sha thmaw.


Watla ka eh ban pyllait por

Ba teh ki kam ki jam ha sor

Mynsiem jong nga ka khmih lynti

Ki kha ki man bangan iohi

Jingsarong jingkmen bym lah nujor

Banga ngam dei ka khun nongsor

Tang lait sha shnong ngan phet bran bran

Shuti ba la lang ban pyndonkam

Jingieid kan teh rasong iangi

Katba nang iaid ki snem ki sngi.


-Ibakor Shisha Kharmujai


"Jingtmang la shnong" is an original Khasi poem by @ibakorshisha 😄🏞️
The poem speaks of the homesick feeling that assails one when one is far away from their village. Country life with its beauty and simple joy is something that one cannot have in the city ❤️❤️🌾🌱
Khublei Shibun @ibakorshisha ïa ka poitri jong phi kaba kren shaphang ka jingim ha nongkyndong, ka jingim ka sngewtynnat shisha!!
