“HALAKKHIDRABA CHEKLA MACHA”
By: Dr. Moirangthem Jiban Singh

Chekla mama-na hai chatkhidanaba,
Eigi pikliba chekla,
Nahak mafamse thadokkhinu,
Yamna lapna paikhinu.

Mafamduda nangbu thoujanbiroi,
Mafamsigi hanglana atiyagum,
Mafamsigi senglaba malangbagum,
Mafamsigi ninghannadraba chingjaogum
Keidoungeidasu nahakpu sakhangbiroi,
Maramdi, nahak makhoidagi tongalli
Sak-kuchu manade,
Fijet-chakcha tinade
Wakhal-lousing khetnei,
Nahak mafamse thadokkhinu,
Yamna lapna paikhinu.

Yaroi! Eema,
Chekla machana hairak-i……
Ei mafamsida leiningde.
Ei anouba sangsardo khangdokpa pammi,
Ei wngla-wanglaba yumsingdo yengba pammi,
Ei anouba angakpa kaya ujaning-i,
Ei anouba chinjak mahao tangning-i,
Eibu amuk thingbiranu,
Ei mafamse thadoklage,
Yamna lapna paikhrage.

Ngaijarakkhi Chekla mapina machabu,
Eengagi kalla nongjulakta,
Kalengi sara meisarakta,
Wakching-gi ingla unlenlakta,
Mangak tingkak thangattuna.
Toubatabu, Pikliba chekladudi,
Amuk hanna hallakkhidre,
Amuk hanna hallaklaroi,
Amuk hanna pairaklaroi.
