The Wounded Falam Generation: failure to response a historical call

 People used to say, the Falams are lovely and polite, gentle and friendly.  Of course, like their other Chin Brethren, since time immemorial and before the invasion of the British, there were warriors and heroes who defended their forefathers’ heritage land, culture, and history, while maintaining their genuine characteristics of friendliness and gentleness, fulfilling the call of nature in human history. 

Not only as a group of people, but also as individuals, there were remarkable people whom history pays honorable tributes, such as Hrang Thio, Za Hre Lian, William Salian Zam, Salai Sun Ceu, and the “8888” student leaders. Intellectually, physically, mentally, and socially, the Falams stood up against all odds of history, for the sake of their own people, to keep unity among all Chins. But now, history questions, why the Falams are silence? Where are the young generation hidden? What shut their mouth up? Why not they responding to the call of history?

A paradoxical moment of history: Silence can proof love! In the modern Chin history, no national historical misstep ever wounded the Falams like this generation. The contemporary generation of the Tedims made a right choice in not choosing to work and associate with the “8888” generation of the Falams and Hakhas of the CNF/As, living history proofs that. Now, where are the “8888” falam generations, who were once very active and leading in the Chin national politics? They are hidden in the cave, the cave of love and forgiveness for their wild brethren! They embraced their painful history, squeezed their hearts and watched the lovely return of the hearts of their wild brethren! Because, they know, none will save the history of the Chin people without the other. They know shedding the blood of their own brethren would hurts the collective destiny of the Chin people. They know, their love for their brethren is greater than their ambition for power and fame. They know, hurting people’s interest hurts the collective end goal. They stand for love and forgiveness to meet the collective end of historical call, not for hate campaign and opportunity. One of the best proves how much you love your brethren is by showing how much you can forgive and sacrifice opportunity for them. So for now, let the Falam generation embrace the pain to proof their love by forgiving their brethren, and sacrificing opportunity for their loved ones until they come back in love!

For the time being, as usual like other defeated group of soldiers in history, the young Falams may be looking for stronger leader but found none, may be accusing, cursing and blaming their own leaders, may be biting each others, and some may even run after others for comfort and opportunity to make their brethren’s pain worse, some may be morally collapsing losing total trust, they may be grouping and splitting faction after faction, group after group, clan after clan, claiming higher moral ground without proof, claiming spirituality without fruits, and so on. Such is nothing new in the turns and twist of human history. Proven by history, when such historical down turn took place in society, some came back and some gone away forever from the political face of the global image.

So for now, let the sound of national anthem they sung be silenced! Let their voice of courage be covered with condemned and shame! Let their images be painted with shame and nasty gossips! For the sake of giving way for their brethren, until they return in love and unity! Human history is like a sea wave, up and down; for those people who know how to ride on it, it’s enjoyable regardless of the high and down! Let none be drawn, rather, let the wind of the wave heals the wounds, and the love be restored, to meet the collective end dream of all of our ancestors-to pave the collective path of a bright future of the next generation!  Let no enemy, by misunderstanding our love, mock us and laugh at us! Let no enemy under-estimate us our silence strength! Let no enemy consider our meekness and love-sacrifice as weakness. Although we may disappear for awhile, we still stand behind our brethren! Although we may appear weak, we may not falter! Although we may appear physically distance, we are united in sprits; we all are for building our national history! Let there be light shining up the history of the Chin people!

Let there be love, unity, and oneness in Chin!
