Ka Tlang Ka La Wan da i Dari Kupar Kharwar





Ka Tlang ka lah wan!


Ka Tlang ka lah wan;

Ka jingtyrkhong ka lah sdang,

Ki borti ki tin um lah sdang sei;

Ban tong um na shyngiar na thwei,

Ki khiew phiang ki tin um ha la rong baitynnad;

Ïeng ap pali bad ki lok,

Oh! katno jingsngewtynnad,

la ki khanatang khana kai ngi ïa shahskhor ïasngap;

Ban pyn myllen ïalade katba ka um kam pat dap,

Ngi shah ïa ka khriat bad jingpjah ka tlang;

Khlem jingsalia ngi leit tang ha ïing ban ïa biang,

Haba la sawa bolbaring kit um bad sha

wah sha shyngiar ki ïa mareh bran;

Dei hangta keiñ ngi ïa sngewthuh ba ka tlang ka lah wan!


- Dari Kupar Kharwar



"Ka Tlang ka lah wan!" is an original Khasi poem written by @dari_kupar 😄 Khublei Shibun for sending your poem! 🙏 @dari_kupar is a Life Coach at Avenues, Shillong. He is an avid photographer who tries to tell stories with pictures that he finds on most of his searching and inspiration deep in the woods, up in the mountain, on the side of a stream, a tiny tea shop in the city, on the buzzing street and busy market. He’s a wanderer who is not lost, tangba shu bakla lynti ha khep ha khep 😅😂 He also finds inspiration in music, books and the people he meets. . . . .
