Hei Haisi Haya Laosi by Chaoba Thiyam, Siyom
Hei Haisi Haya Laosi (Translated by Aribam Uttam Sharma) Let us plant fruits and flowers A sanctuary of life Let us make For trees and bamboos too Hills, swamps and rivers Pure and clean With this vision In Nature, let us stay For the love of the mother For the care of the father For the gift of the ancestors For fidelity to the land Footsteps of the ancestors Let us trace Rejoice in the Lai-haraoba Bound by its togetherness For the growth of the community, ho o! For the flourishing of the land Sufficiency, independence Into freedom! Dance Give rhythm to joy Let us move as one In the vibrations of the Pena Contentment, we shall seek In this change In this stream that flows Let us ignite the torch of perception A beacon For the young Towards the future May their laughters in the playground shine Hei! Let us say Haya ! We shall shout For the love of the mother For the care of the father For the gift of the ancestors For fidelity to the land
