Sai Aina Thu (The Account of The Elephant Celebration)

This text is my reverse transcription into the Sizang community script of one text collected by Theodore Stern in the 1950’s and printed in: 1984. Sizang (Siyin) Chin texts. Linguistics of the Tibeto-Burman Area 8(1). 43–58.

Sai Aina Thu

Ni dang lai in, kapu kapa te nuntak lai in, sai a ka ciangin, a lu pua aa khua mual pan mual suak aa, thau tam mama kap aa a sai a ai hi.

Tua a aina aa, nu taw pa taw khuang tum aa, siel ki taw daak tal thua in, sun taw zan taw a lam hi.

A sai ai ni in khua mual aa a lam phot hi.

A sai lu siia mihing li in zawng aa a sai ai pa sai lu tungah to sak hi.

A khua mual pan in inn dong pua aa, lap pui hi.

Tua a sai aina in siel khawng khui khawng ngo hi.

A thi ciangin a sai ai a ki tep te na in diel kang khai hi.

Siel ai te in a vom khai hi.

Sahang ai te in a san khai hi.

Tua a ai pa thi zok ciangin, a innkuanpui te in tua diel khai thei nawn ngawl hi.
